wedgie9 (2595) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 14, 2011
Tasted on 3/27/11 from a capped and corked 750mL bottle purchased at Binny’s South Loop. Pour cloudy yellow-orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thin lace and leaves some residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is sour and very funky with a bit of lemon, biscuit, heat, and an interesting sweet aroma as well. The flavor is super sour and funky with lemon, biscuit, vanilla, red berry, and a hint of sweetness. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long tart lemon, vanilla, and tannic finish.

MN Ratebeer Winter Gathering, January 29, 2011. This is a winner. Opaque orange color. Sour aroma with lots of yeast. Good sour flavor with more yeast and oak. Not as sour as Cantillon, but I thought I was drinking a lambic. Very good palate and the sour fix I needed.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
really soft profile, light creamy lemon, wheat, and a slight banana. Small bubbled but well carbonated. Bit of dryness. Bit muted, some creaminess to the lemon and chardonnay. Need another try to form a good opinion.

Pours a cloudy golden straw. Thick white head that thins out, then lingers throughout the drink. Strong acetic aroma, letting you know this will be a bit sour. Might settle after it has some age on it. Little bit of malty sweetness hidden behind the vinegar. Can’t get much more out of the nose with the vinegar dominating. Slight woodiness. A bit sour, as expected. A bit sweet, which is unexpected after smelling it. Not so much in the vinegar tartness - more lambic brett than anything else. Soured fruit. Not as thin as I thought it would be from the ABV and aroma. Nice level of carbonation that just enhances the flavor. Any more and it would make the sourness stand out more. It is almost still, which is weird seeing the head that started this thing. The tartness lingers on the sides of the mouth and all over the tongue. And finishes with a bit of the sweetness. Very drinkable. I really enjoyed this beer and hope that they will offer this one more than this one time. If not, try and get your hands on a couple and age one.
