22 ounce bottle that pours a hazy yellow color with a soury/tart aroma that had a touch of citrus funkyness. Flavors of tart, sour fruit, and a touch of spice. Interesting beer that after each sip made me wanting more.

(Shared by daknole). Pours a hazy orange-golden color. Aroma is citrusy, tropical fruits. Taste is tart with some pith-like bitterness. Medium bodied and oily. Nice, refreshing beer.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, stone fruit, wood, some vanilla, toast and toffee. Taste of citrus, apple, wild yeast, wood, some vanilla, and a sour finish.

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2011
It pours clear yellow with a deep orange hue and small white head. The aroma is awesome - light sour funk sweetness that is so pleasant in the nose. The flavor is just as smooth as the aroma, it tastes light funky and tangy that has no bite or puckering at all on the palate. The body is the perfect carbonation for the style as well, so balanced just as Beace would do. One of my favorite from the brewery easily.

22oz Bottle. Thanks for sharing Sean! Tart, dry cottony and noticeably Brett aroma. It’s got that chalky, pellicle-driven aroma. Flavors span spicy to waxy. There’s a slight green bitterness in the finish that I’m guessing comes from the paw paw fiber. The tanginess and Brett qualities are very, very nice. As it warms, the paw paw contributes a complex nut-like quality to the beer, reminding me of macadamias and walnuts. This is a fun and unique example of combining fruit with sour ale brewing.

Tmoney99 (11059) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2011
Draft sample. Poured a hazy chalky yellow color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is also a standout beer for style.

Had this at the August 27th bottle release. 4 oz from a tasting snifter. 4.0 A: Nearly opaque yellow orange color. Came without much of a head, but lacing was plentiful. 4.0 S: Funky is a good descriptor of this. Orchard and barn type funk with wet hay as well. Hops are herbal, slightly citrusy with a lemony twang, and flowery. Clean. 4.0 T: Perfect amount of hop to funk. Refreshing and crisp. Like the nose, there is barnyard and orchard funk with herbal and citrus hops. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy for the body. I just wish this was a bit thicker. 4.0 D: Good refreshing, funky beer. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-02-2011 02:15:27

Bottle. Pours radioactive apricot. Nose and taste of mildly tart tropical fruits, Brett, mango and oak. Lots of soft carbonation. Medium body. Well balanced. Moderate tartness. Finishes with lots of fresh tropical fruits.
