2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Lexington Beerworks. Orange in color with citrus yeast and that nice taste of sour that takes it into a really good place.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Funky and earthy but without that bite of tart I expect from a sour ale. Not bad, but a little disappointing.
