Ratman197 (10691) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2015
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a cloudy gold with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of bread, yeast and light rosehips. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of straw, yeast, light rosehip, light peach and light funk with a crisp dry tart lingering funky peach finish.

thepeter (322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
On tap at Brew Dog Camden Murky with little to no head  Field,  flowers funk,  urine and Def smell the Rose hip tossed into the funkin urinal.  Acidic taste not crisp,  stomach acid. Vommit a bit of malty sweet at the very end at the back of the tongue.  Palate is fuller than most this style but maybe because it is a murky mess of yeast and half digested flowers that was vommitted up into a urinal at the dive bar down the alley.  I think something was wrong with this one.

NikkTwist (1878) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2015
Draft at Monks during a sour event. Murky orange pour with a tight foamy head. Somewhat strong lactic sour. Citrus pulp and pith. Passionfruit. Apricot pits. Donut peaches. Some drying oak tannins to balance the fruit. The addition of the rosehips brings a saltiness to the mix.

neongolden (704) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Mar 21 2015) Pours pale orange with a small white head and light lace. Aroma is floral, sour cherry, raspberry, bready, some wood. Palate has rosehip, raspberry, sour cherry skin, light sweetness, bitterness coming in from the middle on lightly tart and dry with a bit of hay and lots of wood. Light body with light carb. On the dry side for a lambic type beer, for sure, but nice floral/tart/rustic character. Would drink again.

Lightly hazy yellow pour, fluffy white head. Lactic sourness, floral notes, the rose flavor is light, oaky nuances, toothpick, yogurt, roasted lemons. Good beer. Fun series to try.

Draft pour at Stumbling Monk. Very sour aroma, sweet flavor tangerine, little vinegar taste but not in a bad way just characteristic of this sour.

andrewje41 (1074) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Draft pour at the stumbling monk. Pours a thick, creamy orange color with a bubbly head. Strong vinegar and floral like aroma. Light vinegar carries over in the flavor, with a lot of orange and citrus. Wonderfully sour. Slightly dry oak flavor finish. Big sour really late in the palate. Interesting beer. Fun stuff.

McNeillR (1595) - SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Firmer golden, no head. Clean, punchy floral tart throughout. Little bit fleshy, herby and light on the acid girrty finish. A bit softer and leaner but the pure tang is still there.
