UPDATED: AUG 9, 2010 Bottle. Best before 04 2013, so a little early on this one. Pours a slightly opaque golden color with a nice 2 finger withe had that slowly recedes. The aroma is grapes with notes of sour, if you can smell sour ;o) with the addition of lemon. The taste is sour and tart with the funk. Sourness and lemon zest abound. Pretty puckeringly sour. Light/medium mouthfeel. A very good sour beer. The paper wrapping has to add to the taste, right?

bottle bb 07/2012 picked up from jp and shared 5/31/2010 reddish copper pour with a small off white head ... hazy. it smells like white mold, button mushrooms and wet cork mixed with basement damp mustiness and tart orange. the palate is dry... actually, super dry. flavors noted of white mold, wet woody cork, tart cherry, malt, minerals/slate and more damp basement. it is crisp and easy drinking along with a gritty/mineraly texture. 7/4/7/4/16/3.8

Tmoney99 (12733) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle, 75cl. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a minimal-sized off-white head. Tartish, citrusy and barnyardish nose with leather and horse-blanket. Citrus, barnyard and leather in the mouth, medium bodied, dry and tart, finishing quite lemony. Overall, really pleasant indeed. 100115

Dogbrick (10409) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Sample at the HSC Sour Beer Tasting on 06/19/2010: This brew is a hazy orange color with a medium thin and foamy ivory colored head that recedes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Funky aroma with notes of green apple, citrus and oak. Medium body with a moderately sour character that has flavors of grapefruit, apple, oak and some sweet malt in the background. The finish is fruity and tart and lingers awhile. Pretty good Sour overall.

Thanks to whoever brought this to the Carolina Crew tasting. Nice light orange pour, clear and vibrant body. The nose is only moderately acidic, though this impression may be distorted given how many super sour beers we enjoyed during the tasting. Some lightly citric characteristics along with funk give this a fairly distinctive profile. Nice lively mouthfeel, enough carbonation to bring out some of the subtleties of the wood and citrus rind. Nice surprise to finally try this.

Damico (3053) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2010
The aroma is awesome - such a smooth sour presence. The aroma is a thick opaque, rich honey color with a very small head. The flavor of a proper smooth sour with delicious thirst quenching body that wants you to drink more.

Orangish gold pour with a nice sized white head. Mold and cheese aroma up front with some wet toothpicks. Flavor is a bit tart with some dank wet cork. Reminds me of exploring an old damp basement...or as some call it...superdave70’s ass.
