UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Sampled from the tap at the brewery during the 5th anniversary party. Poured a hazy pale gold with a white head that started at the edges and dissipated completely. Aroma had a nice fruity note (slightly tart,) some citrus, some earthy grains and a nice subtle funk backing. Flavor started with a slightly tart fruit note and a floral note. Sweet earthy grains joined in leading to a very smooth and deliciously balanced beer.

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.

I absolutely LOVE this beer! I have recently been thrust into the ’sour world’ and this is one of the ones that I have really enjoyed. This is the cleanest tasting sour that I have tried among all of them. Not too sour/tart, just a perfect balance to me. I’m sure many people will find it one dimensional, but for those of us not used to getting our tastebuds blasted off by a sour, this is the way to go. Nice job Brad and Jackie O’s!!

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.

A-Body is a uniformly foggy light grapefruit (pinkish white) colored hue. Served with virtually no head. The brew is a very interesting, beautiful, unique hue. S- Classic sour nose. Mild sour tartness with a milder citrus-fruity backbone. A slight funkiness and breadiness in the backbone. T- Brett funk all over the place- much like Orval or Ommegeddon- with a sharp pink grapefruit backbone. The finish is much funkier with the brett really shining through. M- Medium carbonation and a light drinkable body. D- This is a very interesting, unique brew. Juicy grapefruit and citrus meet funky wildness. The flavor isnt really sour at all-whereas the nose is. Great beer overall. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-05-2010 22:19:54

22oz bottle courtesy of GatorGuy92. Thanks, Matt! Pours a very hazy yellow with big receding white head. Nose is tropical fruit, some crushed aspirin, sweet malt, and hints of citrus. Flavor is a wonderful blend of sweet and wild- tartness, citrus, malt, mango?, and hints of vinegar. Awesomeness in a bottle. Very enjoyable.

Bottle thanks to pantanap. Pours a very light and bright golden yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is nicely tart with a bright lemony fruity note, sharp and really nice tropical fruitiness all around, bright and fresh with a brett and soft funkiness that all blend really well. The fruitiness really rides in the finish. So refreshing, great beer.

Bottle thanks to Travlr. Tastes of grilled lemon, star fruit, and slight mango. Quite dry and bitter. Really tasty and unique.
