3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Tart citrus fruit eventually build a bucketful of oranges from this lean, impressive Lambic-style emulation.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy orangey beige.
-Bubbles are soft and tiny. Not quite authentic at that level, but it still works nicely with the flavor profile.
-Drinkability is perhaps higher than it is for most authentic lambics.
-Sourness is moderate for the style.

Offered @ Out of the Park Pizza. Hazed, lowly carbonated golden straw pour with a small white head. Nose is kind of briny. Some lemon juice and zest, a bit of banana, and some tropical fruit. Green apples, too. Flavor is certainly sour. Kind of a mineral oil and brine thing going on too, though. Lots of lactic acid...really sour. Green apple and lemon are prominent. Mild banana and tropical sweetness. Eh.

Going down the list of my fav style. This one like others are a rough find. 750 Bottle good price. fantastic aroma of pear, sour mellon and green apple tart. Flavor was initial brett and real tart. Great balance. Excellent to style. Love it when a US beer can do that

Bottle courtesy of mpurcy from the brewery -- thanks! Pours a hazy, rusty orange with light / delicate carb. Aroma is subtle but pleasant with oak and funk, tart fruit. Taste is quite good and traditional for the style -- tart and dry with wood, mineral, fruit, funk notes. You could have told me blind that this was a gueuze from Belgium and I wouldn’t have doubted you. Nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy pale amber, small off-white fizzy head, not much retention, not much lacing; as expected per style. Aroma is tart, a bit funky, fruity, white grape. Flavor is surprisingly sweet up front, fading into light tartness. Just a fit of barnyard funk hanging out in the background, but definitely overpowered by fruitiness - lemon, white grape, perhaps green apple, plus some oaky and vinous notes. Lingering tartness on the finish. Medium body. Well, I must say I was half expecting this to be a nightmare, but its not. Its not a 100 point beer either, but it is certainly drinkable and interesting.

seven San Diego Sours in Seven Days. #6 pours light orange yellow, bottle conditioned clear at first and yeasty sediment at bottom. Brett lacto and sourdough nose and flavor. Mango sour, very tart enamel remover. No head but small tiny almost cask carbonation. Great beer.

Met owner of brewery and my brother talked him into pouring one as it was not on list. Poured in a mini snifter glass. Great and odd in a same vein. Grassy lemon a wierd oak basement character with cigar box flavor. Interesting kept wanting more. Great brew in an extremely hot warehouse..

A two pack with a cherry lambic Aroma of grass and lemon was superb!!! Flavor matched...not sweet lemon sour for sure. Differnt brew but I have had only a few unblened lambics in my like. I like it as it was like a champagne in texture and finish but a sour wild ale in flavor....lovely on a hot day or with a garlic shrimp.

Bottle @ home, thanks to arminjewell for sharing! Pours a fairly clear golden orange appearance with a thin off white head. Banana, lemon, guava, and some funk in the nose along with a bit of corn and stomach acid. Lightly sour. Some creamed corn flavors. Lemon, passion fruit, dull carbonation. Some acid. Twangy flavor. Strange. I didn’t really enjoy it.
