2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled at St. Louis microfest. Pours hazy yellow with a rather ugly large bubbled soapy head. The aroma has faint sweet cloying orange. Medium / thin body with low carbonation. The taste has sour wheat, light fake fruit and a soapiness. Seriously, if you are going to represent your brewery at a festival, why in the world would you bring something this embarassing. Bad beer, bad set up ~ why bother, give someone else that space that’s going to give a damn.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
On tap at the Parkville Microbrew Festival. The brewer renamed this "Double Sour" for the festival, but I think he simply tried to pass off a spoiled keg on us. Vinegar aroma. Perhaps a bit of cherries and apple, but mostly a whole lot of mistake. A completely flat beer. When beer gets fucked up at some point in the production, it ends up bad like this. Shame on you people for serving this in public.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is heavy with clove and citrus, along with lighter touches of banana, orange, coriander, honeyish sweetness and faintly bready yeast. Light-medium golden color, surprisingly clear in the glass with a fine, thin head. Flavor is heavily spiced and sweet, plenty of clove and anise notes with accents of banana and bubblegum and some very faint orange peel on the sugary finish. Mouthfeel is oddly syrupy and thin, body is light-medium. Drinkable, but a little too sugary to be refreshing in these unseasonably warm spring temperatures.
