3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewpub. Clear pale amber. Light acidic barnyrad aroma. Dryish with fairly clean mouthfeel. Citric and lively with some grassy hops. Has some similarities to good, dry cider. Not as complex as for instance Supplication, but still very good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught, at the brewpub
Hazy light amber colour. Soapy, perfumey hop character with strawlike pale malts adding to the mix. Fresh, fruity character with light dusty yeast notes, hints of pear and a good amount of brett. Great beer - takes the effort of a master and utilizes it in a beer for the proletariat without either dumbing it down nor pricing it up. Kick ass.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Russian River Brewery. It poured clear gold with thin white head. It has a big aroma of mild sweetness, yeasty funky sourness and mild tartness. It isn’t over the top sour or tart. The flavor is sourness that mixes with mild sweetness and turns tart as the experience progresses. There’s mild wood, floral and spice hop notes too. Refreshing offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Golden amber beer with a whitish head. Soured aroma, but nothing very strong. Tart flavor with a bit of green apple. Creamy mouthfeel. Tartness complements the beer very nicely - it’s not at all overpowering. Dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Toronado. This dark golden ale poured with a thin off-white head. The flavor starts off slightly sweet, then turns tart with a bitter barnyard finish. The brett is very evident and adds a nice level of complexity to this fine brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from growler: Pours a slightly hazy copper orange color with a thick, frothy, clumpy-lacing white head. Tart, sour, funky, and mildly citric aroma has a touch of dry earthy hops. Body starts with some sweet earthy maltiness, a touch of orange peel and a nicely balanced funky tartness. Smooth flavorful finish. Another winner from Russian River.
