Rating # 100
Batch 3 shared by me.
wowww, popped this open and out came the funk... very cheesy but in a great way. taste was extremely sour, especially towards the end of the bottle. Lemon/ Orange peel, citric acid, suttle yeast, extremely funky. As the beer came to temperature the flavors really blended well together and started to ripen. The cheesy funk remained while the beer continued to get more and more sour. I can only imagine what batch PH1 and 2 taste like...

Lots of grapefruit on the nose, and one of the best american wild ales. Not overly tart, but a little less going on than Supplication, IMO. A wonderful trat that I would love to drink again!

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
375ml bottle, poured into a duvel tulip. Hazy orange pour, with a medium white head. The aroma is impressive. Grapefruit, lemon, grapefruit zest, apricot, orange, honey, wet hay. Swirling the beer brings up some yeast, and strong pungent citrus zest, and loads and loads of funk. The mouth feel is spot on, and the carb is perfect. The finish is quite sour, loads of apricot, and more zingy zest. Big lambic funk notes, horse blanket, and wet hay. This is by far the best sour ale outside of belgium ive ever had this was an absolute joy, and i have no choice, i have to give this a 5. A masterpiece.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Refrigerated 12.7 brown bottle corked and capped, big thanks to misterburd, corked and capped poured into a tulip. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is aroma is tart, medium/light body, very little carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is tart, earthy, and some wood. Hoped for more, more carbonated probably would have helped, but pretty good.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
2013 batch bottle shared by a friend. poured a very clean golden colour pretty much as flat as could be. nose is very sour, with a lot of funky brett notes, ripe apples, wet oak, pineapple, and a very strong tannig note. sour lemons, and granny smith apples, just a ton of oak. taste is very sour, but clean, cherry pit, oak, and a little bit more tannis notes in the taste. lactic, mouthfeel is very enjoyable, light carbonation, with a near perfect balance. this is excellent! and the best american sour (non fruit) that i’ve had. way better as cable car

Straw colored pour with just at tiny bit of head. Medium haze. Cool nose - citrus, grapefruit, a touch of funk. Medium sourness, mostly lactic with a touch of acetic adding some depth, a bit of wood, a bit of funk and just a hint of cheese. Really good / great, but certainly not amazing.

One of the better sours I’ve tried, it’s pretty drinkable without the commonly overpowering vinegary flavour. Pale yellow, fairly fizzy, no head.
