4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sour ale, tasted on tap at OBriens in San Diego. Backlogged rating, I believe from their barrel-aged beer night. One of my favorites of New Belgium to date. Appearance is hazy gold, with a light white ring of head. Aroma is of grains, pear, and a light barnyard funk. The flavor shows more of the sour character, along with lemon zest, funky cheese and biscuit, layered with complexity. Finishes dry with a nice dose of hops. Excellent!

650ml bomber pours a golden orange color with a finger of bubbly white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon zest with some yeasty and grainy notes. Taste is a lemon zest sourness with a fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation. A well done sour ale that is worth checking out.

Bottle. Clear gold pour with a small head that fades to a small ring. Aroma is very herbal with some peaches, flowers and light sour fruit funk. Tastes light to moderate sour. Very herbal and woodsy. Sour lemon and peaches finish it out. Moderately acidic. Dry, white wine finish. Not as good as I was hoping for. Odd to have so much herbal flavor with the sour fruit.

Pour is mostly transparent golden amber with lots of off white head. Nose is heavily resinous hop with citrus notes and a bit of candied sugar and light nights of bread crust and grain. Taste has a bit more grain up front, gets resinous, lots of hops, moderate sourness, a bit bitter in back, light acidity, candied sugar mid palate, citrus and some leathery brett notes. Medium body, a bit syrupy, decent carb.

This is a great tart tasting beer, really smooth on the first sip and then that tart fruit, yeast taste gets you on the swallow and lingers! Great Sour, beautiful golden blonde look, great beer.
