3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper pour with a white head. Intense wine aroma, mild vinegar, dark fruits, and a solid acidity. Dry wood and earthy funk, berries, and perhaps just a hint of Worcestershire sauce. Combination of acetic and lactic sourness on the tongue. Lots of berry, hints of cherry, and a strong wine note. Drying oak, mild earthy funk, and a fairly sour finish. Interesting beer.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy gold with a white head that did some lacing. Aroma is firmly sour - suggesting light stone fruits with a bit of citrus. Med body. Flavor is like moderately sour peach/apricot with some citrus. Gets earthy, maybe a touch of pedio, note in the finish. Excellent.

[ Tap ][ 4oz ][ FW Barrelworks ][ $2.50 ][ Tasting Snifter ][ 2.22.15 ]
>> Sour Opal. Clear orange pour, wispy white foam, effervescent. Nose is more funky than the other sours on tap at today, mild mildew oddity that isn’t the first time to rear its head in the tasting room today, tamarind, salted tomato, tamarind bean. Sharply sour beginning, lemon water end. As it warms up, this beer cleans up quite nicely to be more lambic-esque with leathery red grapefruit, sharp lime acid, oak, and tamarind bean. Sharply acidic throughout, but mostly citric/lactic. More aggressive than Feral One and more lambic than any of the others. Quite impressive.
