3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to errl for sharing this growler.
The beer pours a yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of brett and wheat, with some lemon and orange notes coming through. The flavor is similar. The orange citrus notes mix well with the leathery brett notes. I also get some grass and a hint of toffee. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Semi-opaque deep-orange color with a bright white head. Nice and bright... great color! Its aroma is strikinly sour, with wood and a slight tartness decorating. Potent and strong, but smooth. In the mouth, a slightly different experience. Itís surprisingly light on the plate, thin-bodied, but with a penetrating alcohol and bitter wood finish thatís almost green. Despite its thinness, this is still a sipping beer. Lively on the tongue, too... feels like this would be easier to drink if it wasnít so lively.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma of white grapes, fresh oak, herbs, and grass. Flavor of oak, white grapes, light funkiness, and earth with a dry finish.

Pretty good balance of funk versus hops. Itís definintely more IPA than "sour beer", but it is different. Should be fairly approachable for most, but it just doesnít seem very interesting. Maybe the effort put into production will pay off in future releases. Or maybe this should be bottle conditioned and cellar aged for awhile?
