7 sept 2013, tap. Orange, clear, no bubbles. Nose is sweet caramel malt, some spices (cinnamon, vanilla?). Thin body, very dry, a tad fizzy. This is great! Pretty dry, relatively tart, faint orange peel, dry oak. Great! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GT2 (8269) - San Diego County, California, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Tap at Beachwood Seal Beach for Sour Fest 2013. Full haze dark orange with thick foam, good retention. Nose is juicy, fresh berry medley. Bright. Taste is mildly acetic, sharply salty and sour, with big spicy cedar, berries. Finishes with a mega lactic, phlegm inducing palate that piles on with leather and pulpy lime. Bright and fantastic.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Pours a cloudy reddish-orange color with a small off-white head. Definitely an acetic note to it. A lot of fruit notes, especially cherry, raspberry, and strawberry. A bit of oak and grassy funk. The acetic character is strong in the flavor as is a strawberry note. Some cherry skins and oak notes, maybe a bit of must and hay.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 24, 2011
On tap at Beachwood BBQ for their 5th Anniversary. Pours with a hazy amber-orange body with a large, fluffy white head that leaves some lace. The acidity slowly kills it. Aromas of grape, grape tannin, funk, barnyard, ripe cherry, fruit skins, lots of acidity and mild acetic qualities. Flavors are very, very sour. One of the more sour beers that I have had from New Belgium (including many of the older La Folie vintages). Lots of lactic acid, yet some how there is minimal acetic burn. Lactic up front, but gets a bit funkier towards the finish. Cherries and lots of tannin. Bracingly tart, unripe plum. Tart with lively carbonation and a light body. Excellent.
