4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Easily one of the best sour beers I’ve ever had. Murky pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is acidic, tart, grassy, citric, funky. The nose on this is unbelievable. Brett is present, but not overpowering, acidity is present but not overpowering, and the malt backbone of the beer just shines through. this was a well crafted beer recipe that held the souring process amazingly well. So complex on the palate. No one flavor stands out, but all of the grassy, funky sour notes play beautifully together. What a beer!

Pours a cloudy light blonde beer with a small white unstable head.
Smells Funky, yeasty and oaky.
Has a full mouthfeel, low saturation, and tastes non alcoholic.
Leaves a refreshing sour palate.

On tap at The Refuge in San Carlos, CA. Taste is dry, dry, dry oak and sour apples. I liked it but I was hoping for something a bit for funky.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy straw yellow with whispy white head. Huge sour aroma of berries, a bit of funky leather as well. Fairly flat carbonation, very light mouthfeel, finishes dry with just a bit of pucker. Taste is very sour but under control. Definite sweet tart flavor, oak, apricot, lactic, bolder raspberry, a bit of barnyard funk. Really great sour.

Effervescently sour from first pour to first taste, somewhat cloudy, somewhat between straw and caramel in color, looking forward to 750 ml

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle at a Concord beer festival. Interesting, but I certainly wouldn’t drink a lot of it. Very sour as expected, but rather more acidic than I’d have liked. Nice enough in small amounts.

Tap. Golden with minimal head. Tart with some fruitiness. Peach, pear and lemon. Complex flavors. Only flaw is a slight aftertaste that reminds me of splenda.

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a tulip. Clear golden with small off-white head. Aroma is tart, medium body, low carbonation, and pretty good medium-size bubble lacing. Taste is tart, fruity, some cheese, and some funk. Good gueuze.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours burnt gold with a whispy white head that quickly fades. Lots of bright fruit and even more funk. Aroma shows lemon, leather, oak, vanilla, and cheese. Flavor is a good mix of citrus, underripe stonefruit, bretty funk, and oak. Overall body is moderate and the finish is dry/acidic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours light orange with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of sour fruits, wet hay, vinegar, barnyard funk, goose berries, and apricots. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a bone dry, sour, long, lingering finish. Overall, a tasty, complex sour ale.
