hopscotch (10644) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with copper highlights and a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma features floral perfume, pear and a modest measure of spiciness. Medium-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. The flavor is tangy, fruity and bready with notes of pear and yellow apple. Yeasty, lightly spicy finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

bubbleflubber (2164) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Pours amber into the glass, with a wispy eggshell head that reduces to sparse lacing. The nose is of dank esters and grapes. Flavors are cracker, balanced by Brett notes: sour esters and unripened berries, and finish with a lightly toasted dry hopping. The medium body and active mouthfeel satiates but does not overbear the palate. A nice drier wild ale, part of a superb yeast series. Expect anything less from Mikkeller?

Koelschtrinker (17704) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 8, 2014
Wenig säuerlicher, dumpf herber Antrunk. Süffig, in weiten Teilen wenig aromatisch. Hopfig herb zum Ende, erheblich aromatischer und vor allem hopfiger. 9/10/9/9/6/9

floydian1 (1362) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 4, 2014
On tap at Beer Deluxe, Fed Square, Melbourne. Hazy amber body with a foamy white head. This is not that sour and has sweet tropical fruity notes. It has a nice subtly tart dry finish that refreshes. A decent quaffer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SinH4 (3176) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2014
A bit of funkiness, also dry. Comparable to the Saison. A very good one, but not sour yet. Let’s see how the Brett Brux. turns out.

northropfrye (3294) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Orange amber body loads of foamy head. Interesting kid of funky but not really sour at all. In fact there's a bit if hoppy bitterness and sweet tropical fruit. Some grapefruit and a touch of tartness.

slowrunner77 (10234) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"A weaker aroma than the other sour in this release. Slightly bigger body, more wood, and a hint of that stinky cheese thing going on. My second favorite of the 6."

Stuu666 (10856) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours amber, light funk, sweet and fruity, not bad.

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
bottle. pours a hazy amber with a massive pillowy white head. all i’m getting in the aroma is moldy soap. bretts apparent in the taste, but being a pale ale this beer is too hoppy to be a good sour ale. it is nicely carbonated and surprisingly thirst quenching for its ABV, but overall i’m not impressed as i was expecting something entirely different.

VsXsV (3967) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Almost clear Albert liquid with medium white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, barnyard, sweat, bread, tangerine and citrus. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of tropical fruit and bread. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice.
