0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
I guess I don't get it. I thought I love all craft brews... Until today. I always heard the hype of this beer style people called sours. And living by Russian River brewery, figured the first one I would have should be the best. The initial aroma was that of rotten moldy vegetables in the bottom produce drawer in my fridge. Then the taste hit me, Athletes foot mixed with fungus. Before you ask, yes it was fresh from the brewery. No aging was done. Never again will I go out of my way to try a sour. It was the first beer I didn't want to drink.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with big fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of funky gym socks, barnyard hay, and sweet citrus. Taste is more toward the citrus and funk. Just plain amazing, funking awesome.

Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a straw yellow with some haziness and a one-finger white head. Brett forward barnyard nose with pears and light green grapes. Citrus and lemon zest notes along with some light green pineapple notes and bread. Short-lived finish but still solid.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big Bretty nose with pears and barnyard and a bit too creaminess. Excellent low medium carbonation. Modestly sour with barnyard and funkiness which is fairly subtle. The finish is a bit short, but not bad.
