On tap at the Linkery, poured opaque golden orange with a two finger tight bubbled head. Tart, sour Bret funk nose. Flavor similar, but less complex or full. Some citrus acidity and tartness from mid to finish.

Pours a cloudy orange, with a thick, creamy off white head. The aroma is pretty funky, lots of orange citrus, and mild acidity. The flavor was more of the funk, some tartness, with good doses of that orange citrus. The brett was quite evident throughout as its funkiness was its most unique character. Pretty interesting and nicely drinkable, but not mind blowing.

Stone Sourfest. Very original concept. Definately hoppy and sour on the finish. I don’t think i’ve tasted anything quite like it.

Sampled at the Stone Sour Fest. Not very sour at first. Aromas were yeasty Belgian style. Flavors were somewhat hoppy with just a touch of sour on the finish. Not too bad. But not as sour as what we were having that day.

On-tap at Stone Sour Fest. 1st taster, high hopes, let down for me. Pours cloudy brown/orange with a big creamy white head, good spider web lace. Smells of some characteristic Brett and barrel smells, vinegar, and sour. Tastes bretty, sour and a little funky. Sour malty, no sign of the hops. Thin body, weak carbonation.

8th taster @ Stone Sour Fest 2008. Poured a murky burnt orange with a small off white head, great lacing. Nose had wine, citrus, oak and some yeast. Nice to have something a little different @ the fest, I think my 3rd fav of the afternoon.

On tap at the Linkery. Hazy golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma of wine, earthy brett funk, and oak. Sweet and bitter initial taste, citrus, vanilla, wine, and oak taste with a dry finish.
