KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 22, 2012
Bottled, on the RBSG bus. Grape nose with dusty fun. Cloudy blonde with lace. Flavor of sour grapes and other interesting fruit, lime pear, and lactic acid. Tasty and refreshing with very interesting fruit.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richly golden glowing hue, bright and vibrant with a cakey whitish head atop. Dies to a loose yet thicker film, laces ok overall. Aromas are sour apples, lemons, crab apples. Gentle woody oak and tea. Earthy, gentle grass, with wet oak, touches of yogurt, sour lemons, lactic acid. Really nice nose with that tea element. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a firm gentle fruity sweetness up front moving quickly into sour lemons, lactic yogurt, and touches of oranges. Some grapes, yogurt, and woody earthy tea elements. Touches of spice, earth, wood. Gentle pepper, firm sourness grows around the beer, with touches of funky nose moving into a richer fruity sour experience. Yogurt, lemons, crab apple. Pineapple, brett, and firmly sour yet not acidic. Backend and finish offer lactic, yogurt, lemons, pineapple. Really firmly sour fruit melange, mellow brett grows, touches of oak. Tea gives it a woody earthy twang that works more me. This beer has certainly come into it’s own. I wouldn’t say this is the most complex sour, but it’s flavorful, works well as an experience. Nice. Vibrant orange, citrus, sour nose with gentle tea really gives some life.

radagast83 (4655) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Sampled this at a sour tasting that Tomme Arthur showed up at out of the blue at. This one poured with plenty of head, but was not overly carbonated, which was a bit of a surprise to me based on the initial pour. Yellow-orange body, with a white head. Aroma is one that reminds me a bit of citrus grapefruit. Notes of citrus with a heavy amount of tea leaves and herbal notes. Yeast character in there - a bit reminding me of a wit but with plenty of funk. Very interesting.

Bottle snb. Big white head, hazy. Lacings. Nose is tart, fruity and intense. Taste is sour and fruity, very nice. Medium to light body with loads of carb.

ephemeral8 (67) - denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle at Sour and Bitter.
Nose: Cinnamon candles and crystalline sugar, gum, glog, mulled wine, gardenias, Shea butter, suntan lotion, buttery crumble crust topping.
Mouth: baked cinnamony peaches, mild fish scales, cocoa butter lotion, finish is candied orange rind dipped in caramel and sugary coconut flakes. Weird texture/flavor mesh--flavor crystals in gum, tartaric acid crystals flavor? Not my style, but not bad.

jackl (4608) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Bottle @ S&B. Hazy eggshell yellow color with a tiny head. The nose is woody, some lemon rind and dried cork. Acidic dank cheese and green grass. The taste is lightly cheesy orange, some floral notes. This beer has a very dry woody tart edge to it. Funky and quite tannic. The body’s light and nimble, active. Overall, a pretty nice, aggressive beer.

Botle @ Sour’n’Bitter, 2012.
Pours light muddy yellow with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has oranges, doughy malts, apples, sharpness, a bit of dry oak. Low carbonation, nice dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is super dry, soft bitterness, apples, grapes, oak and nice tartness. Nice.

ClubGonzo (4028) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle sample @ Sour & Bitter Dinner, Copenhagen. Hazy orange body, huge white head. Aroma is intense coriander-like herbal tones, bitter orange marmelade, yeasty tones and pale malts. Original, and quite nice. Taste is sour lemony acidic notes, yeast, oranges, peaches and hints of barnyard funk and lime. Smooth, low-carbed palate. This is very nice indeed!

Travlr (11900) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle. Hazy golden color. Aroma has a funky background of white pepper and haystacks. Taste is dirty lemons and perfume. Reminds me of the Roze.
