Slightly hazy rustic golden/copper under a thin rocky cap. Nose has an initial tartness of lacto acidic yeast and something citric like orange or something. Nice tart flavor especially at the start with a wonderful balanced flavor of lemon zest and tart sour yeast with a soft wheaty tone to back it up. Nicely done.

Ratman197 (9502) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2014
On tap at Falling Rock poured a clear golden amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of straw, lemon zest and barnyard funk. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of straw, lemon zest and light barnyard funk with a crisp dry tart lingering lemon zest finish.

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours blond, finger white head. Smell tart peach and tangerine, bit of funk. Taste lime, light tart, bile, funk and citrus. Med body. Ok

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bronzed body, ring of carbonation, faded head.Perhaps I’ve had a few too many Elysian pumpkin beers, but the aroma resonates or sour pumpkin flesh. In a complementary, yet similar vein, the flavor blurs on the tongue with sugar pumpkin with a tart balancing vein. Roasted and salty sunflower seed finish.

reebtogi (4080) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Sampled during VCBW 2013 at the River Rock Casino Resort pouring a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Light aroma of grains with hints of citrus and yeast. Taste is a lemon sourness with a light sweet malty body. Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. An interesting take on the style and quite tasty.

GothGargoyle (1132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Nice dark yellow colour with a pale head. Aroma is bread, mandarin, clover honey. Nice mild sourness on the palate with a balancing sweet wheat character. Taste is wheat, orange marmalade, honey. Very drinkable.

stchloe (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Very solid sour beer flavor, tart and puckering. Saffron adds a nice dry quality to balance the lightly sweet malt notes, also a wonderful aroma of grass/hay.

Clear amber color/ lasting white head. Nice barnyard dung, cinnamon, cherry, caramel aromas. medium bodied. Bretty barnyard piss and dung flavors with spicy cinnamon, dusty earthy pale malts. Lightly sour like a Berliner wheat. very good

Draft at Brouwers Sour Ale Fest 10’. Pours golden like honey. Nose is sweet honey, caramel malt, lemon, and hints of sour and wheat. The taste was honey, lemon, and some sour. This is disappointing.
