750 ml bottle kindly sent to me by bvc. Pour is orange ruby hazed, not much of an off-white head. Aroma is lemon citrus, bright sour, funky musty spicy yeastiness and some dusty floral element behind that. Taste is bright sour, funk earthiness, orange juice, mostly very acetic. Bright, big sour - much more sour than tart, though it is certainly both of those things. Palate is medium, surprisingly drinkable for this big of a sour. Overall, this beer seemed like it was somewhere between the La Folie and Foerder in terms of sour character. I like both of those beers, so this one was all good. Thanks for grabbing this one for me Brandon, I am glad I got to try it.

750ml bottle, with thanks to thesti for the chance to try! Pours a hazy golden orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma is funk and tart, sour grape and cherry, with more that I can’t describe. Flavor is more of the same. Some similarity to La Folie, and found this one to be right there with it. Thanks for sharing Tim!

Lightly foggy amber thin white head. Aroma is light funky, some caramel maltiness, brett, apricot. Taste is palate ruining funky, heavy apricot/peach fruit influence. A very heavy funk/sourness and this is your cup of funk if you like this.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2009
Received 750 ml bottle via trade with 5000 and sampled at Skyview Sourfest II. Pours a hazy orange brown brew with a thin off-white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma of yeast and barnyard funk, tart citrus zest, some lemon, sourdough bread and a hint of spice. Taste is spritzy, tart berries and citrus flavors with yeast and wheat malt. Finish continues the tart and yeast aftertaste that even leaves behind a nice tart citrus and tart cherry presence.
