3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from WB. Clear gold pour with a short white head fading to thin and leaving a fine, even lacing. Nose is tart fruit and some saison-like funk. Medium-light body with vigorous, fine carbonation. Ripe apricot, sweet apple, pear, black pepper and some earthy funk. Tartness is mild (less so than the bomber I had the month it came out), almost more of a fruity Saison than a Sour/Wild.. An accessible sour with a mild Brett character. Would be interesting to try this one again in 6-8 months. One of my favs in the Apocalypse series.

On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A pale amber beer with a bit of white head. Fruity on the nose. A very pleasantly fruity sour ale with, yep, distinct persimmon note. Highly drinkable for summer. 3.6.

OK sour, on tap at Tangle Town. Brett, some unique fruit. Nice though not extreme enough.

Hazy light amber. Aroma is light, bit fruity and a bit floral. Malty, a bit crackery, lightly fruity, it is a bit yeasty and the sour has not kicked in all the way yet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark golden color with a ginormous white head on it. Nose is a little sour, with the unmistakably earthy notes of the brett. Taste is only moderately sour, and decidedly fruity, with an almost brandy-like finish. Not a bad beer.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
hazy tangerine, puffy large bubbled white head dies quick. Meaty peach and heavy sawdust nose, reminiscent of rust, celery, and a lumber aisle with sourness interspersed but no part of the profile. Heavy pie crust and alcohol front, tons of effervescent sweetness with light grape sourness emerging mid amidst dough and papery bitterness that continues until the muted, coin metallic finish. Too effervescent, carbonation dominating most aspects and almost no sour through the disappointing end.
