3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Avery Sour Ale Fest 2013. Clear dark copper with a small white foamy head. Nose is a bit faint but has some light bactillic notes mixed with a semi-dry malty biscuitiness. Flavor is kinda the same; lots of malty biscuity tones mixed with earthy bretty and lactillic sourness. A pleasant sour lager.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Marzen with bugs, huh? - sure, what the hell - lightly hazy dark copper - very light aceto and lacto notes in the nose, along with lightly sweaty and musky brett funk - soft carbonation, medium body - quite dry and moderately acidic - complex but mellow combination of lactic qualities and dry, earthy brett overtones, along with some leather and estery quality - moderately spicy phenolic finish - nicely balanced and drinkable sour - pleasantly surprised by.how awesome this is.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Grimm. Pours a hazy, dark orange appearance with a small, off white head. Somewhat spicy, a bit acetic, vinous, cherry, dark fruity, light oaky aroma. Fairly dry, tart cherry, vinous, red grape, light caramel, a bit spicy flavor. The Märzen is gone with the bugs introduced and the resulting beer is pretty decent but nothing too exciting.
