On tap at dry dock Hazy apricot color. Thin whit ring for head. Once warmed up a bit of a bright white head appeared. Nose was lemon, apricot, lots of brett, and oak taste was mostly tropical fruits, lemon and apricots high carbonation, big dry oak finish. Very sour and very tart. Really enjoyed it, fun beer

arminjewell (9152) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2013, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought big lemon, sour fruits, vanilla, slight oaky notes into a funky middle, some nice tropical fruits come through as well. Taste is even a bit better, some oaky, funky tones go into a lemon, pineapple, and passion fruit middle, slight vanilla in there, finishing fairly tart, dry, and oaky. Nice.

onceblind (6379) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2013
At Avery Sour Ale Fest 2013. Slightly hazy golden with a dusty sour aroma with a little bit of peppery tuna. Flavor drops the tuna note and keeps all the delicuousness, with some sour lactic lemonpepper with apricot and blonde grains with a dry Brett-like finish.

notalush (5561) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Tap at Dry Dock - turbid gold - headless - when cold, the beer was quite pleasant - quite a bit of funkiness, oak, a lot of white wine character, apricot and other tropical flavors - however, as the beer warmed, all I could taste was acid - mostly tart lactic acid, but also a fairly significant acetic punch - the other qualities were there, but the acids overpowered them - no nuance, just sourness - so, enjoyable at first, but once it got even remotely warm, I found it hard to finish the glass.

thirdeye11 (5914) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
(Draught) clearish medium yellow, ring of one white bubbles. Nose of cranberry, tart, bit funky/chalky, stone fruit, honey, fresh, tart and delicious. Taste of peach, tart, acetone and off flavors really kept in check, kiwi, delicious sour beer.
