3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solid sour/funky effort from Oakshire. Poured a murky yellow with a thin white head and a fair bit of effervescence. Aroma is farmyard, horsey, all of the Brett notes are present and accounted for. Acidity is light but present. Fairly one note, but it’s a good note. This is a well done Brett beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
December 29, 2012 - bottle at Brett’s tasting. Cloudy yellow pour with some head. Tart, lemon, fruit and wood in aroma and taste. Had a dry finish. Not sure why I wasn’t feeling this one, guess this had the misfortune to be matched up with too many other amazing beers.

Bottle shared at Muckfest III - Pours light amber with a thin white head. Tart white grape on the nose, light oak, and a Smarties sour/sweetness. Taste is nice woody tartness, lightly sharp oak--real lemony and crisp. Well-carbonated with a fluffy, medium body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours clear yellow with a large off-white head and a strange fruity aroma. Wow, this thing is yeasty. It keeps blowing the stopper off. There is a subtly sour fruit flavor that is quite winey with a dry finish. Hard to describe, but it’s very tasty..

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a large white head. An interesting aroma for a sour beer. Lots of vanilla notes (from the oak, I assume). Quite a bit of straw and grass with a moderate lemon/lactic characteristic. Bread and cracker malt give a mild sweetness to the flavor, but there is still a pronounced dryness and oakiness. Moderate tartness with lots of straw and grass notes, maybe some subtle fruitiness.
