3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Updated 4.14.2013 at Barrelworks. Was told this is "totally different" from previous batches. (New rate?) Pours a hazy golden with big white head. Aroma is funky with a cheese and pasture going on with a sour note. Taste is more funky cheese and barnyard, followed by a mild sour and then grain and a hard to pick up fruit bill. The sourness isn’t high on this one and the funk really makes up for it. Very much a different beer from what I remember.
Old: Stone Sour Fest 2012 - Draft. pours a medium golden. Spice and an odd floral aroma, almost spruce. Very little barrel in the taste with more random spice and floral notes. Very similar to Saison du Buf but in a more spice forward way which seems hard to do.

Bottle to snifter. Crystal clear apple juice. Agressive head that disappeared quickly. Moderate funk and tart. Sweet and oaky. Thanks jw.

On tap at fobab. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of Brett, pineapple, slight vanilla. Not too overpowering. Light mouthfeel and light to medium carb.

Draft at BeerMongers, who knows when. From notes. Pours hazy gold, min ring of white head. Aroma full on vinegar (like, straight white - no, maybe cider. Still, something out of my kitchen cupboard). Overwhelms anything else. Maybe some funk / blanket / manure beneath. Taste: lightly toasted cereal finish. Vinegar is light (surprisingly). Lemon, oak tannins, some light fruitiness; lactic. Palate: light body, soft carbonation. Overall: this is interesting - wish the nose and mouth agreed a bit bitter, and there was a bit more carbonation, but nice. 7/4/7.5/3/14.5

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy tan color with a small white head on there. Nose is sour and fruity, with a nice bit of funk to it, and seems very fresh. Taste is slightly sour with some great farmhouse elements, and again is light and fresh. Very smooth. Me gusta.

Sour aroma and flavor but not to the point of overpowering the rest of the beer. Very dry and very refreshing.

Draft pour at fobab. I dont know what was going on with this, but it wasnt good. Best I can describe it, is a sour, that wasnt sour. Had the funk, but without the tartness, that just doesnt work. Like old sweaty socks in a gym bag.
