3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear as a bell and light golden with a big fizzy head. Nose is acid, vinegar and old fashioned candy sticks. Minor oak. Flavor is sour, sweet malt, candy. Finish has a blast of bitterness and acidity. Very good but not as complex as some golden sours. Easy to miss any dry hops or barrel aging.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2012 UPDATE: pours a nice clear golden color with small white head. Aroma of is pretty funky, slightly cheesy, slightly vinegary, some basement, barnyard. Medium bodied. Flavor is quite tart, with a very dry finish, and notes of cheese and funk throughout. Liked it a lot better second time around.

330 mL bottle. Pours golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma is a very acidic sour lemon. Sour enough that I feel like I start to taste it on the back of my tongue. Flavor has the same acidic lemon sourness, but not as aggressively, with some biscuit, touch of dustiness. Very dry. This is a great sour.

This is one of the first sour beers I’ve had at Quinn’s in Seattle. It got me hooked on the genre.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Served in a champagne flute at a local beer tasting event. Clear golden color. Nice thick head with lots of bubbly effervescence. Sour lemony aroma with a little woody oak tones. Very, very tart, almost like a sour candy with vinegar. I’m not an expert in this category, and I realize it’s intended to have this tartness, but it was a bit much for my taste. I wasn’t picking up any of the woody notes from aging in barrel -- I just get sourness. Medium bodied, maybe even a bit thin on the palate.
I would think it’s best served perhaps as an apertif before a meal. I wouldn’t think it would go well with most foods. Not my favorite, but it’s interesting to try.
