alobar (2737) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Hazy golden orange pour with an aroma of funk, citrus, spice, and bread. Well-blended flavors of tartness, citrus, spice, and bread. Nicely balanced beer that does not overwhelm. Thanks to richlikebeer,

Countbeer (4323) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle: Smaller sized vast and slow disappearibg white head on top of a almost clear yellow colored beer. Smell lemon, brett, sour, yeast, other fruits like orange and apricot, nothing crazy, all very soft and smooth. Taste is a creamy and smooth mix of yeast, fruit, peach, some creamy malts, wood, citrus and herbal spices. All very soft and creamy and no real brett taste... Strange. Aftertaste is creamy, wood, yeast, peach a hint of brett comes through. Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, very balanced and tad more than a medium body and a creamy smooth texture. Thereís no sourness in this beer. It did remind me of a tripel, a very smooth and well balanced one. Or even a summer beer, easy drinkable, tasty, smooth, balanced, but a sour ale?

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottled. Poured bright golden with a white head that fizzled out quickly. The aroma picked up white vinous notes, dried apricots, cut vinegar, and lemon rind over a soft, but supportive bready base.. a kiss of honey and dank funk on the back of the nose.. interesting. The flavor found layers of lemon rind, oak and fruit skins throughout, with a simple pale base.. dried out very nicely on the finish, leaving tasty fruit, a hint of effervescence, and a kiss of funk. Light-medium bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. tangy throughout, but not all that sour.. almost oily in the right places.. I loved the mouthfeel.

Bottle @ Ales Unlimited: If youíre expecting a sour, youíll be upset. Donít expect anything really wild either. Expect a nice and soft, farmhouse type of ale. It tasted well-together, but I didnít get a lot of funk. Alongside the palate, the taste reminded me more of a nice cheese. Itís as if you donít have to pair it with cheese because itís already there (in a good way obviously). Anyway, I also want to note that the pour was loud and fizzy. The body was murky yet noticeably lively; it was straw and gold; there was a creamy white head and little lacing was left behind. The flavor and mouthfeel stood out the most to me -- the aroma was there and it was good enough, but there was nothing to note. Regardless, Iíll have mo of it.

NikkTwist (1539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle at Eulogy. Yellow amber pour with a big fizzy head. Big brett aroma. Medium sour. Toasted wheat. Honey nut cheerios. Artichoke. Celery hearts. Straw. Band Aid. Bubblegum. Kumquots. Candied sugar. Lemongrass. Funky sour, but still rather tame. Medium palate, but feels nicely full for the style.

Pours clear gold into a snifter. Bright white head with excellent retention recedes to coat surface. Sweet caramel and coriander aromas. Sweet with toasted caramel and hay upfront turning to ever so mild brett in the lasting slightly salty finish.
