Strykzone (6560) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Tulip at Flix while watching Jack Reacher. Plenty of berries smellied and tasted. Funk was the lightest in any sour I have had. By far. Wod was also light. I hoped for much more funk. This was mostly a fruit beer.

beerguy101 (5355) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Sampled at 10/12/2012 at GABF. This sour/wild ale pours a light brown color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, tart and slightly funky. A medium bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Fairly tart. Nicely balanced between the cherry and the tartness. Finish is fairly dry. Aftertaste is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly tart.
