The sourness overwhelmed any other flavors that might have been in this beer, though the oak showed up in the after taste. It was different... in a good way... sort of.

Really. Why call this a pale beer? It reaks of vinegar and sour fruit. I should have read up. But, the only clues on the bottle are the mention of fruit and the words specialty pale ale. I can’t make out the oaking at all. I’m sure it an acquired taste.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear pale yellow with a slight green tint and minimal white head. Fruit and bubblegum aroma. Taste is sweet malt, strong tartness and a bit of breadiness. Good!

Aroma wise its a bit of a turn off. It honestly smells like fish sauce with a dash of citrus. Taste wise is where it shines. Grapefruit. Yuzu. Kaffir. Calamansi. Only thing is it completely vanishes at the end.

Good beer from a good friend with bad taste. He doesn’t like beer, but he bought this bottle and I got a tick.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Golden pale amber with a small head that reduces to a ring around the rim of the glass. Aroma of soft vinegar and soggy wood after the rain. Taste is light vinegar, citrus, wood and some old sour fruits. Lightly carbonated and a little oily on the palate. I enjoyed this, once I got over the initial taste. It grew on me. A very good beer.

Bright yellow-gold color with a little ring of head and no lacing. Aroma has light citrus notes and an oakyness. Flavor is tart with sour apples. Tastes like apple cider vinegar. Sour & dry with light carbonation and almost oily mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, white head that instantly dissipates. Aroma of brett, barnyard and horse blanket. Quite fruity and slightly spicy. Flavor is sour, white wine and cider. Nice fruity and refreshing flavor. A bit on the sweet side.

330 ml bottle. Pours a copper color with almost no head. Aromas of vinegar, wet wood, malts, and golden raisins. Flavors of vinegar and wood, tart white wine, and a bit of resin. Too much vinegar without depth.

Wundervoll. Einfach wundervoll. Leicht getreidig mit Rosinenaromen und einem unfassbar sauren Bumms nach einem Zitronenlutscher, der in Lambic getaucht wurde. Wunderbar.
