Sample from bottle, kindly donated by US BBF 2011 visitors. Orange color, cloudy. Toffee, lemon, grapefruit and oak in the aroma. Sour lemony flavor, limoncello. Amazingly complex beer, hard to get all the flavors and aromas.

Bottle shared at Borefts 2011 by hannont and co, thanks! Pours cloudy amber with a small pale head. Aroma is sour with a hint of oak and citrus. Taste is sour candy, citric acid. Quite tart but tasty and pretty well balanced.

Deviation. Yes good on aroma. But better on finish. Authentic funk on finish. Yes lemon and wood. Preety decent but lacks real authenticity.. Bit too lemon squash. Tasty but too much lemon. 3.7

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Orange-red clear body. Moderate sized off-white head, visible carbonation. No lacing.
S: Lemon and orange acidic notes. A bit of acetic and lactic sourness. Light musty oak.
T: Orange, tangerine, and lemon acidic notes. Delicate must and funk. Well integrated but not particularly memorable.
M: Lively, but well matched carbonation. Strong tartness towards the back end. Refreshingly clean finish.
O: Call me a heretic, I just didn’t see what was "special" about this beer. It was tasty, but not particularly unique, memorable or interesting.

Bottle. Oh my goodness. This is the shit!!!!! Hazy burnt orange pour with a frothy white head. Wonderful funk, brett, and mild barnyard aromas. Tart but not overly sour and very refreshing. Lemon zest, wet barrel, sour cherries, bret, a hint of oak and vanilla. Dry and crisp. Out-freakin-standing.........

(750ml bottle with huge thanks to AmEricanbrew - Rating # 3100!) clearish orange/ruby with a film of white bubbles on top. Nose is funky, toasty grain, tangerine, popcorn, currant. Super complex and delicious smelling. Taste of tangerine, toasty, grain, tart cranberry, lemon, funky, wet barrel, sour cherries and just very tart in general. The absolute perfect amount of carbonation and palate linger. I’ve maybe not ever had a better American made sour, this one is truly world class and shows no signs of going downhill anytime soon. I sure hope i get to try another of these in the next few years. Thanks eric!

Finally getting to rate this, awesome beer from an awesome hook up. Awesome lemon, funk, acidic sour, sharp cheese, barnyard. Taste is delicious lemon, funky cheese and barnyard, some sweet grain notes, slightly sweet and acidic finish. Not overly complex but awesome, balanced, and delicious.

Bottle shared with the MN crew. Thanks for tracking this down Greg! Hazy light orange with copper highlights, little head, little lacing. Big white grape and fruit sour notes, quite dry and tart smelling. Some wood and tannin. Flavor is awesome. Not overly complex, but amazing tasting. Tart, fruity, tannins...just about the perfect sour. Not overly funky. Moutfeel is lively, slightly mouth coating. Very nice. Glad I got to taste this one. A great beer.
