Bottle to glass. So excited to reunite with one of the sisters. Pours a deep amber color with zero head. Aroma is a bit mild, but still showcases the Brett and acetic acid. Flavor is much more prominent, with an intense sour fruit. Light to medium in body with a lingering tartness. Delicioso!

Bottle, 8.2%. Pours a hazy burnt sienna, looks all but flat. Smell is typical of a fruity sour -- raspberry and brett. Taste is tart and pretty dry with what Iíd call an approachable funk -- almost a bit polite for my taste. Mouthfeel just a bit thin I could see someone who didnít traditionally like wild/sour stuff enjoying thin and oily. Very enjoyable, well-made stuff but not a personal favorite in the style.

Bottle from Caponeís, and letís ramp up the PA distribution on these sours, guys. Pours turbid ruby orangy with off-white head. Nose is tart raspberries, earthy yeasty funk. Tastes tart, with the raspberries predominating, and a complex flavor throughout, with tart raspberry, lactic yeasty sour flavor, and a hefty satisfying mouthfeel that ends even better than it starts. Delicious, and lively on the palate all the way to the end. Let this one coat your mouth and tongue, savor it, and appreciate that without all these micro-organisms, the human race may not exist.

765ml bottle?? Shared thanks to Scott & dmac! Pours a nice mostly clear amber color with almost no head. Aroma is super funky, yeasty, with acidic lemon, and sour berries. Taste of funk, sour cherries, tart raspberry, and getting an earthy bitterness in the finish.

Pours a dark reddish color, not much head. Aroma is tart berry notes, a bit of oak and funk, some vinegar. Taste is very tart, some berry notes, lots of oak, lactic, semi dry puckery finish. Good stuff.

765ml bottle from Spirits Brick, 765...what the hell is that??? Po ured a clear ugly amber that in the light seems more orangey but in low light seems more reddish/pinkish and not much head. Aroma is great, super sour, acidic, toast, for some reason a touch of chocolate, earthy, lemons, rasapberry and tea. Body is thin to medium with way super fizzy carbonation and a sour finish. Flavor is two steps back from the awesome aroma, notes of cherry skins, lemon, acidity, dry toast and some champagne yeast. Solid beer that might get more funk-e bertter with some age.

Pours with a golden rosey hue. Tart slightly fruity aroma. Has an assertive brettanomyces flavor as well as a tart fruity pleasant taste.A must try if you like sours or American wild ales.

freeofthoughts (682) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - NOV 3, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 Bottle pours dark golden but the glass looks rosy orange red with very little carbonation. The aroma is great, modest sour tart fruit with a nice sweetness. Is drinks very easy, mild tart raspberry with a tiny touch of strawberry, very balanced sweetness aids to the depth of the fruit. Very little noticeable carbonation but the brew has a sharp sparkle that certainly aids the feel. The oak and wine is very secondary, just adding depth and finesse to the finish. The finish lasts quite a while with a dry red wine tart fruit and very light earthy oak. This is absolutely top notch by style.

One of a series of exceptional sours that recently arrived in Lawrence. Kinda pricey, but this is one of the better ones. Berry sweetness balanced out the tartness of this beer. It would be interesting to see how this one ages.

Poured a light amber red color with aromas of raspberries, and some Brett. Flavors are the same, tart raspberries, funk, light barnyard, and a touch of cherries. A very nice and drinkable beer, I need more of these bottles.
