Pours thick lemony orange, unclear with a small white head. Aroma brings light medicinal subtle mint and some citrus rind. Body is super dry, big, and a bit chalky. Flavor brings citrus and tart.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2013
750 ml bottle courtesy of Nate. Thanks dude! Pours a well hazed golden hue, firmer haze, with frothy head. Stays as a filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas are distinct sour tangerines and apricots. Nice big citrus, lemon and mandarin oranges, lactic zing, some yogurt, gentle acidity. Initial is tart and zingy, nice bigger sour presence hits with tangerines, oranges, and peaches. Some big lemony lactic zing. Yogurty, tart, and gentle funk. Bready malts, some straw. Big fruit presence. Middle is fruity, lots of citrus and peach action. Firm lactic zing. Some rich flavors. Backend is tart, zingy and yogurty. Some gentle metallic elements. This beer is really drinkable. Reallu nice. Finish is sour, lactic, and fruity. Just really nice. A touch sweet but really nice.

Very prominent sour. Not sure if the lacto is joined by Bret or not but the intensity and balance seems that both may be present. Overall a pleasant Lamborghini.

jbdpsu82 (95) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Heard a lot about this brew, maybe I expected too much. I went in expecting Russian River or Troegs Splinter quality sour. Comes in low at 6%, miss the boozy feel of splinter gold. Fruity aroma, light on funk. Thin almost non-existent head. Vibrant gold appearance. Taste is tart, almost like a sweet tart, and fruity. Very sessionable beer, but that's not my style I guess, especially at $18/bottle. Glad I had it, won't get it again. Yet to be thoroughly by Pizza Boy. I wanted to like this almost as much as the bartender wanted me to, as quality local sours are hard to come by here. Alas, I will go wanting

750mL at pizza boy thanks to alex. Pours clear golden, weak foam. Nose is quite hoppy, some Brett cedar and fresh wood, lemon peel. Taste is again extremely lactic, all encompassing palate. Yogurt heavy with hefty phlegm inducing lactic acid. Mild to zero apparent Acetic heat. My new to sour beer friends liked this a lot.

orangesol (680) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2013
UPDATED: APR 28, 2014 Served out of a bottle on the opening day of the new Alís of Hampden.

A - Pours slightly hazy yellow with a small film of white head leaving spotty trails of lace down parts of the glass. Not very much action visible.

S - Smells of mild cheesy funk, intense lactic sourness, fresh tangerines, basement must and some wet hay. It takes a little while to get going but once it does there is little doubt what this beer will be about.

T - Starts off with plenty of lactic sourness slowly giving way to hints of ripe tangerines, mild basement must, yogurt and a bit of cheesy funk. Finish is a little heavy on the sourness but it fades pretty quickly, leaving the palate dried long after the finish. It still has plenty of fruit lurking behind all that sourness, helping to keep it balanced as much as it can.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Lactic sour feel is strong throughout but it remains as balanced as it can be. I enjoy an extra sour beer every now and then and this really hit the spot.

O - An interesting wild ale. The sourness is pretty strong so it isnít for the faint of heart. I enjoyed it but it wore on me over the course of the bottle. Definitely worth the price of admission but I prefer the Afternoon Delight to this one.

PhillyCraft (3144) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle at pizza boy, Pours thinnish gold with very light head and not much lacing. Aromas of lychee, chemicals, tangerine, windex and weird funk. Taste is salty earth, lemon, asian fruit, and loads of funk. The aroma was a little aggressive but overall it was solid.
