This beer has put in some time in the dojo since the first release, because it has definitely leveled up into an incredible American Wild, possibly my favorite ever. Reminds me of a lemon square. Damn impressive.

Pours a golden orange with a small, tight white head. Aroma is citrus, red wine and some barnyard funk. Perfect balance of citrus and sour. what makes this beer one of the best I have ever had is the hint of red wine notes. Unbelievable balance! Amazing beer!

Bottle through trade from Chris, hazy golden orange color with minimal head. Aroma is big sweet and tart lemons, subtle rich wine notes and some oak. Taste is a big tart lemon up front and finishes into big white wine character, jaw is tingling from the pucker and cheeks drying from the tannins. Probably one of the best sours I have had.

October 6, 2013 - Bottle shared by Brandon. Cloudy yellow orangish pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was woody, white wine, funky, vinegar and maybe even a little rotten egg, which wasn’t a bad thing. Taste was just an amazing mix of funk, wood and sweetness. Wow, this was just fantastic, best sour I have had to date. Thanks Brandon!

750ml bottle .. 2013 Version .. . Pours a deep peach gold .. mild foam .. . medium fruitiness, the tartness is mild- very drinkable .. thought this would be more sour, very tame. but an enjoyable libation .. . . you’re skating on thin ice while crying in a bucket..
