nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Pour from a bottle thanks to Chris at a recent tasting. Not a lot of pop off the cork and carbonation on the low side right off the bat. Color was gold orange with out much head. A bit of funk and fruit on the nose. Lemon, peach, and some grapefruit. Nice tart sourness with some oaky earthy notes. Peach presence tasted natural and not overstated. Really enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2011 FoBAB 9 - Saw about 5 pale nerds sprint (as fast as they could) for this as soon as they found out it was here, 20 friends of theirs laughing knowingly as if this is normal, even an inside joke... must be a BA thing. Murky gold, thin fizzy white ring. Standard LA house yeast character in nose, moderate, unripened peach attempting to mask paint thinner and green stalk. Flavor is considerably better, still undesirables like lotion, but also high lactic qualities with serious peach and citrus, growing through the soft, playfully well-carbonated finish, a bit oily but not nearly as bad as LA can be, some off-setting brett in the end. The errors are there, but at this age, still a very enjoyable beer to drink. Get it while it lasts (and before it becomes a whale).

On tap at Fobab 9. Pours lightly hazed light golden. Aromas of peach, apricot, lemon, funk, and some light wood. Flavor is sour with peaches and lemon, some funk in there as well. Finishes with some sweetness and not overly sour.Kink of had a fizzy carbonation but worked well. One of the first beers I grabbed at Fobab and glad I had the opportunity to sample.

Aroma is full of citrus notes like lemon zest followed by a brett funk that is very noticeable. The appearance is a hazy golden color that pours with a small off-white head. The taste is very similar to the aroma. It has a strong presence of fruit that is complimented very well by the tartness of the beer. Overall I enjoyed this beer very much. I will put at least a year on the other bottle that I have. I feel that the age will mellow the slight sulfur notes that are present.

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Sampled from the tap at 2011 FOBAB. Pours a hazy pale gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma is full of nice funk notes with wet horse, horse blanket and barnyard coming out as well as a bit of wet forest and light tart fruits. Flavor is very tart with a good amount of backing funk, main tart fruits that I pick up is are kiwi and lemon. Really nice sour.

Pailhead (4842) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2011
On tap (FoBAB 2011) : The aroma consists of sour peach, tart orange, lemon, and a touch of solvent. Itís a hazy orangish-gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet peach that quickly turns to tart peach. The finish has lots of sour lemon and a touch of oak. Itís light bodied with somewhat lively carbonation.

A hazed blonde ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, smooth chalky Brett and epsom salts, ground cherries, dryish. In mouth, a classic lambic with nice horseblanket, sour cherries, epsom salts, light buttery notes, very nice. On tap at FoBAB 2011.

JMerritt (1806) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2011
Sampled at Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer 2011, Chicago. Very hazy yellowed orange, medium white head. Aroma: sour straw, sweet oak, apricot flesh, soft cheeses (brie and goat cheese came to mind). Flavor had a more subdued tartness than I was anticipating - this was definitely one of the "sweeter" sour ales of the festival, with more of the peach/apricot/nectarine fruitiness evident.

Veritas 010. Served many samples at FOBAB 2011.. hazy orange brown hue with a thin soapy white head... Peachy sour funk somewhat socky aroma. Bright with spunky lemony goodness... Flavors same with bright funk and sour, not acidic. Crisp lively carbonation with good body. Exceeded my expectations based on ramblings i heard about the brew beforehand. question is, do the bottles live up to what we had on draft? 9/4/8/4/17
