Deep golden body with a soft white head. Big sour nose, earthy, bretty and dry. Flavor is tart up front, citrus and lots of brett character. Finish is rather strong on the acidity, notes of lemon and oak.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2016 bottle. Huge acidic nose, haystack and funky, with gorgeous lacing on the pour. Uber-tart front with a rich, acidic middle and a lingering woody fade. Some vanilla, some floral notes, but mostly pucker. Oh, the pucker. God, this beer is as brilliant a yearly sour as we can get. Yum.

Sampled on draft at Tapped this beer poured a murky apricot color with a large foamy orange-white head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was tart and sour with chalky Sweettart candies. The flavor was dryish and exceptionally sour with chalk, Sweettart candies, citric acid and yeast. Long finish. Medium body. Solid.

650ml bomber. Hazy orange pour, big white head. Aroma is funk, citrusy, and fruity. Lemon zest, wet hay, wet grass, candied orange peel, and some light earthiness. Nice mouth feel, soft carb. Sour and funkiness abound in the end. Loads of lemony citrus goodness, and some strong funk sourness. Excellent quaff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 edition. Bomber purchased in November 2014 at Bine & Vine ($14.99). POURS a rusty sunset hue with a half finger of white foam. Though aged over a year and a half, the AROMA still has some bright hoppy-fruity notes of lemon, peach, pineapple, and citrus blossom, along with additional notes of light and fruity vinaigrette, "woody" oak, and soured malt. FLAVOR is really good with notes of nice smooth lemon, sour cherry, wet oak, peach / apricot, bits of tart grapefruit, some unsweetened yogurt-like tartness, and some yeasty-bready malts. Dry finish with some pleasant lingering (lactic-ish) tartness, and completely concealed alcohol. Very nuanced yet remains "accessible" despite the complexity. Not overly tart and the hops seem to add a "bright" element that works very well, making this extremely quaffable on a hot inland San Diego summer day! (748, 1030)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
1 pint, 6 fl oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a relatively small head. Strong fruity esters, sour, and some wood. Tastes are primarily zesty orange. Strong acidic bite on the pallet, crisp carbonation, and a medium woody finish. A sipping beer for sure but a nice pic for a hot day. Also hides the 7.5% abv very well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Au nez je trouve ça très, très attirant. C’est fruité et chargé. Aucun problème de personnalité ici... En bouche c’est sûre et très concentré. Je suis un peu déçu: ce n’est pas mauvais, mais ça manque clairement de finesse. C’est très intense comme offrande et on pourrait espérer plus de subtilité. C’est comme un cocktail aux pêches qui aurait été évaporé pour le concentrer.
