Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Hazed bronze, after the bottom is disturbed. The distant aroma offers some guava, and the familiar gruyere rind funk in careful distribution. Calcium deposits are plentiful. Wet dog, some brine, some dirty beach; lots of nostalgic, evocative stuff.

Juicy, tart, sharp flavor. Watermelon, golden kiwi. Hard water minerals and soft limestone gravel. Gorgeous balance and subtlety. Bitter, whitish wooden notes become apparent with time. There is no stark, violent action to this one, but the quiet elegance of its bright fruit and cloudy funk is sufficient for an impressive experience.

Puckering palate whisks away moisture but is not overpoweringly sour. The mid to late palate has a mild hollowness to it. The finish shows high acidity with pineapple, lactic acid, goat cheese. It is ultimately somewhat clean. This could merit multiple visits, for its impeccable balance and easy character.

ttroha (266) - Americus, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle from Hop City. Drinking in honor of JHeath99’s bday. Pours clear straw-ish in color with lingering white head. Aroma of moldy fruit and something sweet. Taste is lip-puckering sour. The most sour beer I’ve ever put in my mouth. It’s tangy as well, with hints of apples and cherries. A good beer for those who like sours.
