jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2013
2013-02-02. Hazy dark orange body, small off-white head. 3+ Interesting aroma, sour sort of tropical fruit or pineapple and a bit of something I can’t place. 7++ Flavour is a strange melange, mildly sour, dryish finish, whispers of malt and barnyard. Fruity notes that defy my description. Average bodied palate. Okay. Bottle at Sourfest, Buffalo

NBird (341) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2013
Darker tint of golden amber, heaps of chunky sediment, good medium head. Smells vinegar and bretty some lemon/citrus, a swirl or upon pour the head gives off some stone fruit hints and some sweet malt. Tastes pretty tarty up front, vinegar sour, a little stone fruit and hints of malt before finishing sour, dry and slightly woody. Is a weird sour, but worth drinking.

brystmar (1203) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Yeast residue lined the neck of our bottle. Funky through and through, especially in the nose. Tart, barnyard funkiness right off the bat. Citric. Reminds me of Tilquin up front. Oak dominates the midgame, finishes with a kiss of sweetness before turning sour again. I'm assuming this is Haand's first foray into the world of sours, and this is a damn fine effort if so. Wasn't sure what to expect here; ended up being pretty nice. Dunno why this is rated so poorly; granted, I'm a tough rater, but this deserves better than a 3.27 average.
