3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear golden with thin white head, from 750 ml bottle. Aroma is nice and tart, with brett funk, sour apples, and some light hops. Taste up front is tart, leading into apples, sweet touch of biscuit with a tart sour finish. Not overly sour, but a great sour presence especially for the price.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
$3.99/ 11.2 oz. brown bottle. Specs. Live Oak, TX. A clear almost transparent golden yellow beer with a small head. The aroma is very sour with vinegar and citrus displayed with some light fruitiness. Really a nice aroma bordering on the intense side. The taste is very nice and sour...A nice citric vinegar taste coming through with some peach and apricot with the mouthfeel being slightly foamy from the carbonation. This beer makes you lick your lips and is moderately mouth puckering. A very nice sour that is very worthy and one of the best sours available in TX. Very good price also.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 10C. Clear gold with a small off-white head. Orchard fruit and forest floor aroma. Taste is full of apples and pears with prominent but gentle vinegar-like sourness. Thereís no great depth to the sourness and itís rather clean, but itís _really_ nicely balanced. Thinnish body with just a hint of lactic texture. Dry and very refreshing.

The beer starts with a deep dark golden color with a small foam towards the top. The aroma starts a sweet malt character and subtle citrus. The taste grabs the back of the tongue. The flavor starts with a intense sour note and finishes with a bitter ending.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 better and far more exciting than the oud bruin, which kinda surprised me. aroma livelier - lemons, tartness and funk. feel lactic...ok. pale with a frothy white head. flavor is almost mouth puckering sour with levels of zestiness and complexity the brown lacked. musty cider like. not quite great, but very good. better on tap.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2011 Draft. Pale yellow with a thick and foamy head and mild vinegar aroma. A light and pale ale, allowing the sour elements to come to the forefront and dominate the palate. Unlike some of my other favorite sours which tend to be darker and offer a bit of malt counter to the tartness, this one is really just a whole lot of puckering sour. My wife says it would be great poured on some frites. Well, itís also enjoyable for sipping.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Pours a pretty, clear gold with a thin but lacy head. Aroma of apple cider vinegar, and light cheesy funk. Flavor hits you with spritzy tart apple and finishes lemony with a mild spiciness from the oak. Very light barnyard, but certainly not a mother funker. Champagne-like in body, and very refreshing. Alcohol is deeply closeted. Sooooo good.
