4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 6/29/14 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a thick, fizzy white head that recedes fairly quickly to nothing at all. The nose is really great, with plenty of fresh, honeyed strawberry, a great sour note, and earthy white peppercorn. The flavor is the same with sour strawberry, a touch of spicy and funky yeast, and plenty of earthy white peppercorn. The body is medium with lively, almost sparkling carbonation, and a long earthy white pepper and strawberry finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeff’s on July 20. 750 mL bottle. The pour is a lightly foggy golden yellow with a small cap of white head that lingers pretty intently. The aroma is definitely sour fruit. There is a little bit of funkiness here, but it’s pretty good. I like the strawberry aroma. It’s normally a docile fruit when in beer, but I’m a fan. The funk on the back end is pretty hefty. It’s something else. The flavor is a little better. There is a nice bright berry and a great tart crispness. There’s a little pepper on the back end, but it does tie it together nicely. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a nice carbonation and a really peppery aftertaste, especially as it warms up. This is one of the better strawberry sours I’ve had, but the pepper just needs to calm it down a little.
