PhillyCraft (3128) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Sample at p house a couple days after their gross goose event. Poured a brownish gold color or something like that, not much head or lacing to note. Bland grains, malt, vanilla, soapy yeast are the highlights. Lots of nothingness in this macro produced craft beer. Gay as hell, pissing me off!

drfabulous (3843) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Orange in color with citrus yeast and that nice taste of sour that takes it into a really good place.

Strykzone (4812) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Sampled at Stl Hops 6th Anniversary Party. A bit of a disappointment. Softer and lighter than Matilda. The wild yeast might not have developed yet. Flavors were muted and too gentle. A nice beer but I hoped for more.

Caeneal (5) - Indiana, USA - JAN 16, 2014 does not count
Is it worth it to rate sours? Does it make sense to like the flavor of something that is vaguely fungal funky? Still it's a good and interesting brew. Richer amber color than I expected and more subtle malt flavor than the regular Matilda. Funk and yeast on the nose with something I can't place. The flavor hits the middle of the tongue and is strange flowing into so interesting and layered that I like it even tho I don't. Strange brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

northropfrye (2137) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Funky and earthy but without that bite of tart I expect from a sour ale. Not bad, but a little disappointing.

Ed5388 (1974) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft sample at Spirits in Brick NJ. Poured a cloudy light amber color with a thick pillowy off white head. Aroma is sweet and funky. Taste mimics the nose. Sweet darker fruits, yeast, Brett, and some tart citrus notes.

pushkinwow (1961) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at the 2013 Capones Black Friday event. Pale amber with a white head. Raisin, orange, light funk, some yeast and light brett. Moderate carbonation and light body, easy to drink.

theisti (3184) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 23, 2013
~8 oz draft at Waldo Pizza in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a hazed yellow lighter golden with a ½ inch white head the falls quickly. The aroma is full on musty funk along with a delicate floral citrus lemon. The taste is the earthy funk initially, then clears towards the traditional Saison notes of Matilda with the grain, slight ester herbal yeast and the soft floral lemon citrus. All flavors combine decently, and are quite drying. A bit more funky tart than sour. The palate is medium bodied, a nearly flat carbonation and the dry finish. Interesting, though not much depth of character.
