phaleslu (6555) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2014
22 oz. bottle shared by thebaldwizard or beace - thanks, guys! Pours a clear orange-gold with a small white head. Notes of apple, lemon, oak, leather - just the right amount of acidity and intensity. Medium-bodied, with a tart, funky, fruity mouthfeel that finishes dry. Moderate carbonation. Really nice, unique sour.

Lukaduke (2222) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle thanks to alexsdad06. Pours a medium copper color with a bt of haze and a finger of foam. Lots of tart tannic apple in the nose, cider, musty oak, yogurt, long flavors... seems more boozy than is listed, would have guessed closer to 8%. Round mouthfeel mid palate that gets drawn out into a sour apple, citrus pith and vanilla soaked oak... interesting beer.

Bottle shared by Darkguardian. Clear burn orange pour with no head. Sour cherry aromas. Sour cherries, vinegar, and caramel malt notes. Decent body and mouthfeel.

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Sample from bottle #220 shared by a friend. The beer is a clear reddish-orange color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart apples, spice and malt. Light-bodied with a moderately tart apple flavor along with notes of sweet malt and oak. The finish is mildly sour with a lingering spiced tart apple aftertaste. Solid beer all around.

Tmoney99 (10722) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Staff Bottle. Poured a clear orange copper color with an average frothy brown head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy tart fruit and funk aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout complex brew.

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99 (also draft at the Anniversary party). Poursa clear amber color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor hhave a very nice balance between the tart/sour apples and a hint of peach and some sweet malt and fruit juice. Wood, mild acidity, easy drinking sour.

b3shine (5493) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Bomber to snifter (Staff Only 2013 series; shared by Tmoney99). Looks good; a transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells good too; tart and mildly funky with notes of tart (almost crab) apples. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good stuff!

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle from Bunny. Aroma and flavor of soured apple cider. Ain't bad for 5 year aged sour, but why can't you get the same outcome from 2 years? More potent critters. Good beer.
