12oz bottle from Whit. Pours a murky yellow-gold color with a small white head. Pretty still carbonation. Fruity, sour, lacto and brett aroma. Pretty light flavor for a sour that finishes kinda "wheaty" with a hint of citrus. Pretty drinkable "gateway sour."

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
light yellow pour. Aroma is Sour, acetic, wet wood, a bit of light tannin. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, flavor is more sour, bit of nectar fruit, some funky sour woodiness and a light dryness on the end. Nice try, but a little thin in the end. Decent stuff.

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Blond with a white head. Nose is wood, lightly acidic, smooth tartness, light cherries. Smooth palate, flavor is light and sour, wood is coming through very nicely. Very well done folks.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a ever so slightly hazed golden straw color with a bone white fluffy head that both coasters and collars around my tulip glass. Funky, floral, winey nose that is very enticing. The wine aroma is very evident. More sour in the taste vs. funky than I would have thought given the nose. Sour grape taste give way to funky barnyard floral notes. Lemon notes as well with funky aftrtaste. I canít get over how funky the nose is compared to the taste. Light mouthfeel with decent carbonation.

Thanks to BarKigKin & DarkBeerChick for the hookup! Looks like sparkling apple juice in the glass. Aroma of dried citrus rinds. Upfront "tangy" sweet orange flavor and finishes with a dry woodsy aftertaste. Overall, itís really interesting and complex. A solid brew...

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cool bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours hazy gold with a frothy white head. Nice sour, pehaps even barnyard, aroma. Medium body with sharpish carbonation. Flavor? I call barnyard. And citrus? And a familiar flavor I canít name. Itís lightly astringent, and seems to have oak character. Wine? Maybe thatís the familiar flavor? A BA sour thatís not apparently the same as any others I can recall. Nice.

Had this on tap at the Ananke bottle release at Freetail 10/9/10. Pours cloudy/golden-orange with a minimal white head. The aroma is orangey, spicey, apricots...very fresh and clean. Itís refreshing a easy to drink for a sour. Iím not usually a fan of sours, but I could drink this all day everyday. The taste reminds me a little of orange baby aspirin, but much better! Definitely a winner. One of Freetailís better brewsin my opinion.
