3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
R&D Sour Ale, 500mL bottle shared by Cole. Hazy amber orange with a small off - white head, fading to a thick ring before long. Big lemon sourness up front with some old wood, aceto vinegar notes follow, a little leather. Flavor follows suit, quite sour, a bit musty, lots of puckering lemon sour. Semi dry finish, sourness peaked at a 7, a little wheat in there as well. Light carbonation with a light body. Very solid. 8-4-8-3-16--3.9

Had this at the 2014 RB Pittsburgh Summer Gathering at Horny Devil’s place. Actually it was after the equinox at the beginning of fall, but DILLIGAF. Big thanks to James & Michelle for hosting such a nice spread of quality beers and for this particular beer a GIANT thanks goes out to beerman dan 6686. Smell is sour but it does have a tad of that putrid thing in the olfactory, but in a good way I guess. Pale yellow with some slight brown hints. Good decent co2 on the first taste, but could use more. Reminds me of the good lambic stuff, you know, the real thing. Yep, that tart bite makes up for the lack of co2. Farmy feeling fun. Funky and finiscky. Lovely it seems. Really good beer experience, the small is long forgotten. Never over the top but quenches my search for tarot. Yummy, solid finish. This beer rocks!

Tasting at Matt’s, brewed 2009, bottled 2012, 4 years old
Hazy amber color with small head. Wonderful aroma, funky, old cellar, a bit footy, Soft mouthfeel, strong woody character, mildly astringent, good acidity, lemon and orange peel; the wood character is wonderful, and the beer also delivers freshness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500mL bottle, pours a clear dark golden orangey amber with a very small white head. Aroma smells like a gueuze, with loads of bretty funk, citrus, and oak. Flavour is very dry and funky, with loads of bretty funk, some horse blanket, light oak, and citrus. Light-to-mderate tartness; this is mostly a bretty funk bomb. Excellent stuff.

One of the best American Wild Ales I’ve ever had. If it were easier to trade for, I’d love to have more.

Bottle. Thanks, C! Another fantastic treat. Pours a clear bright orangey dark amber with a big sudsy, creamy tan head that goes away. Huge poopy nose right at first, lots of old barnyard funk, plus horse blanket. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Rich grassy and basementy mid palate with some light mineral dryness. Long dry finish. Very nice.

Big thanks to brian for the share. One of the best beers of the night. Very tart with great carbonation and awesome fruity notes. I get some lemon, light tangerine, cracker, dough, with a huge tart zing.

WillRunForBeer supplied. Many thanks! To oversized snifter, it pours a hazy dark orange with which a trim whitish head 1 finger in length stood. Tastes and smells of sour grass, horse blanket, rolled oats, denim, and Swiss cheese. Delectable. Quenching.
