3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with thin ring of off-white lacy head and light spotty lacing. Aroma is sour fruit and brett, nice balance. Taste follows, tart and sticky on the tongue. Damn solid sour, quite impressed.

the beer pours a dark amber. not much aroma. Maybe a little dark fruit. A little fresh oak. Not vanilla. the first taste is of sour. Oak then comes next and stays through out. Not much malt to speak of. The beer leaves acidity in the mouth.
A delicious beer. And almost perfect. One of the best sours I have had from an american brewer.
a beer. This is definitely sour. A bout of fresh oak is apparent too! The body its petry light. Not much malt to balance the sour.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well aged bottle. Hazy pale body with no head. Cheesy, lactic nose, lots of horseblanket, smoky brett and light cherry. Light to moderately sweet, lightly sour, tastes of cherry pie, cheese and honey. Medium body is very soft with light carbonation. Decent stuff, though strange.

Bottle with a little tiny lable on the side. Pours out a burnt orange topped with a white head. Aroma was lots of sweetness and fruit. Taste plenty of the cherries, and apples along with some nice pucker. Thanks Toby for this one.

2008 Bottle - Thanks Toby! - Pours out dk orange with a large white head....aroma is sweet/tart, plenty of fruit and dough?...flavour is similar, light vinegar quality, cherry, apple, light malt but more sourness...this was a terrific treat, and fun to put side by side with the other NXNW sour, but it blew this one away...still, a terrific experience...

2008 bottle thanks to Toby. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large fizzy head. The aroma is sweet, but it also suggests a more acid brew. The flavor was very acidic and tart, like a Gueze almost. Funky and spicy. Nice.

Great pour on this, big explosive nose. I get apples, cherries, grapes on the nose and it follows through on the palate as well. If you roll this on the back of your tongue it will make it curl. Great stuff. Glad I got to try this on several occasion as well as on tap at NXNW.
