gururyan (650) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - APR 12, 2013
Poured from 750 into snifter, very hazy light gold in color, little to no head, bubbles more like a champagne. Very sour upfront, then tames down to a lemon bitter. Not bad, will discuss this one and their others with the Prairie brewers at the upcoming craft beer tasting next weekend. This is no session brew, feels like I’m suckin’ on those Warhead sour candies.

Beautiful straw fruity funk sour aroma. It’s a very cloudy gold with a light white head. So light and refreshing with a lemon tartness over a light sour grain. Very refreshing light.

baraciisch (2291) - California, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Hazy golden orange with white head that quickly dissipates... Bottle overflowed as soon as I opened it... Aroma of dirty socks, hay, earth, hint of lemon zest and tartness....flavor is sweet and fruity initially, but quickly goes dry and finishes exceedingly dry ... Like day old champagne... Not my favorite, but drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

appearance: as soon as I popped the top the beer immediately overflowed out of the bottle, the white head dissipated very quickly, the beer is is a slightly hazy average gold color, Aroma: lemon, pear, funky, egg, Taste: has a lemon tart sour note to it, not sweet at all, some bitterness as well, Palate: lively carbonation, leaves mouth dry, light mouthfeel, bitter and funky aftertaste Overall: absolutely delicious beer, sour but not as sour as most sours, the hint of funk is nice too, has bitter aspect that really blends well, only dissipointment was the bottle overflowing, rough handling was not the cause ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

freeofthoughts (684) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2015
Tap pours lightly hazy golden hue light orange tint with some tightly knit white fizz. The aroma has an earthy dried fruit, pear apricot, apple, with a little yeasty funk. The flavor is similar, a little sweetness with the earthy dried fruit and champagne brett funk that sort of works, sort of clashes. A slightly dry finish still leaves it refreshing and pretty enjoyable.

Deal w/ it


Pours GOLD!

The aroma is unripe strawberry, light funk, some mild lemon & light hay.

The flavor is dominated by sweet tart character. It’s moderately dry, a touch husky, a bit fruity with a pleasant but low level of bitterness.
