Draft at Stone Sour Fest 2013. Barrel # 96. Pours a semi hazy golden orange, with little carbonation. Tart lemon, oak, grass, musty barrel character, and funkiness. Ok, I wish it was more carbonated.

Stone Sour Fest 2013 as Funky Barrel #96. Clear orange pour with no head and minimal carbonation. Musty and funky aroma with some citrus notes. Oak, grass, and a decent lemon tartness. Has a bit of a sawdust flavor to it. Musty funk, a hint of paper, and citrus. Lemon, grass, and oak. Dry finish. A bit bland.

Realized never rated this from Patron Saints party last fall. Golden color with an acidic vinegar aroma. Tastes of Brett, sour herb spiciness. Radically different brew for sure.

Tap at Beachwood BBQ. Poured orange gold with some haze. Aroma up front is sour and tart with some musty notes as well as light tart fruit. Flavor is mouth puckering sour/tart up front with a nice dry finish. One can pick up nice fruity notes behind the alcohol as well as "funky" musty aspects as well. I am just getting into these sour beers, and this is a good one!

Sampled at the brewery on 11/9/07: Pours a hazy dark golden orange with a wispy white head. Complex oaky sweet and tart nose has some light fruity notes and a touch of toffee. Starts with good biscuity caramel and big tart oaky complexity toward a drier earthy cherry finish. An incredibly balanced, complex and enjoyable beer.

Sample @ Brewery: I may be turning a corner on these sour beers, as I thought this was pretty good. Itís funky, no doubt. Sour, but not overbearing or annoying. Itís almost like there are two parts to this beer. Up front, there is quite a bit of sourness, but the finish is smooth, dry and refreshing. This is probably a good introduction beer for those of us who donít really care for beers with brett.

They were pouring samples of this at the Angelís Share release today. Poured a dark brownish-yellow with absolutely no head to it. Aroma is acidic and tart. Taste is a nice blend of acidity, funkiness, brett all over the place! Wonderful oak flavor as well. No bourbon or brandy or any other over-the-top shenanagains just a nice woody flavor provided by the oak. Has a slight taste of granny smith apples I thought. This is a great brew, Lost Abbey/ Port really know how to make some awesome beer. Great stuff.
