4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma is tart with a hint of apple. Mouth feel is very lively. Flavor is close to the aroma, with a nice tartness that is not overbearing. This may be the most dry tasting beer Iíve ever had, which is not a complaint. Finish is exceptionally clean leaving your tongue ready for another sip.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz bottle (Thanks to Jess). Not too bad here, but I do find this one a bit unexciting even though it is a stronger sour. The aroma is mostly mixed sour mild-sweet fruits with apples and berries, minor cheesy bread, and a bit of oak. The pour was pretty. A nice creamy, soapy white head, good retention and lacing, and a light, sharp looking orange-gold body. Maybe slightly too acidic with just a twinge too much cheesy yeast, the sour profile is definitely a main player on the taste, but its not overdone. Also, some oaky earth, light mixed berries, and bread. Overall, I liked this, but definitely not my favorite sour.

11.2 oz bottle from Zipps. Golden colored pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is tart, sour, fruity (apple?). Flavor is more of the same, with a bit of a pucker inducing tartness. Finish is a bit like a sour apple cider.

Golden color, with a medium white head. Aroma is that not unlike many of the lighter wines. Damn, that first sip is sour. Once you adjust to the sourness a little, you notice a nice fruity taste in the background. Interesting, complex beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells slightly of wood and citrus/lemon, though maybe thatís influenced by the salmon Iím eating right now... reminds me A LOT of a champagne. Nice hazy yellow with slight red hues, no sediment in bottle, not much head, some lacing. Taste is a bit shockinginly strong! Wood and alcohal flavour, tapers off to revel the champagne dryness, sweetness. Quite smooth, not much bubbles on the tounge (unlike champagne), a bit of yeast flavour. Not bad, a bit of a shocker, very strong flavoured.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Wild yeast is coming up the nose right from the start accompanied by wood accents, hazelnuts and orange.
Appearance: Very clear yellow / straw with a creamy white head that is holding quite long.
Taste: Wood and hazelnut notes are back with a slight bitterness as finish. We can also find little notes of barley sugar and honey. But the acidity is very intense.
