Cloudy yellow, white head. Man this is badass. Sour, white wine notes, perfect amount of wood imparted. Lemony goodness with a bit of yogurt. Its quite sour but soooo drinkable. YES!

Sample at the 2014 Boulders on Broadway Beer Fest. Nice nose of spicy wheat, Brett farmhouse funk, cloves, lemon zest, and citrusy esters. Pours a hazy lemon with a fluffy head. Perfectly tart taste of lemon, a sweet grassy note, and a light white wine note. A darn good refreshing Brett saison.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at FW Barrelworks. Pours a hazy orange color with minimal head. Amazing bouquet of lemon zest, acid, citrus, cut grass, and excellent 3F-like funk. The palate is juicy and drying at the same time, with an intense mix of orange-lemon-lime flavors, acid, and Sour Patch Kid. Looking at earlier reviews, I feel that this beer must have been released too young at the time or has been tweaked, because it is definitely one of the best American-made oak aged sours.

On draft at FW Barrel Works. Simply put, the best sour Iíve had to date. Extremely fresh grape tartness explodes on the scene with a great mild citrus verbena aroma. Iím still in shock over the perfection in this brew!

Slightly hazy yellow pour with a big thick white head at Barrelworks. Very nice hints of lemon and funk in the nose. Great taste - lots of flavors flying around, complex sourness, a touch of barnyard, finishing with sweet lemon and some other juicy fruits that I canít put my finger on. Very well done.

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.

Semi hazy copper with a thin dissipating head. Nose of a subtle tart sourness, a certain oak funkiness, and some acidic apple ester. Flavor is much more tart (though less acidic), with a dry bretty oak tone and lots of sour fruits. A little spiciness hanging around.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft on tap at the ICBG FoBAB 2012 Brewers/Sponsors Dinner (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich ruby coppe hue, a more hazy middle with deeper glowing edges. A frothy offwhite head dies to a firm film, laces ok. Aromas are a richer sour slant, oak and lactic sourness, citrus and gentle cherry, bit of berry mixes with richer oak, big white wine grape, gentle funky brett grows on the nose. Touches of bready malts, cherry, white wine. Initial is firm lighter end of the fold body preaching a bold sour edge. Lactic, sour cherries and grapes, berry, and white wine hit the palate firmly, taking the middle by storm with citrus, gentle funk grows with touches of melon, some more oak, gentle toasty oak, some bready malts. Richer sour grape and lemon, lactic acidity, moving into a lingering rich funky and sour backend. Gentle carbonation, funk, and spritzy edge gives some nice life. A touch cheesy, some dryness, but a sour light liveliness really sets the table here. Finish is cheesy, a bit more funk ridden, lingering grapes, oak, sour lactic twang. Really nice beer here, giving solid flavors, firm sourness without overiding, good complexity, and a great drinkability without growing into the acedic realm. Well done.
