On tap at the brewery poured into a tulip. Perhaps the most perfect sour I've ever tasted - tart and crisp with light malty undertones. Amazing nose and beautiful on the eyes. Absolutely lived up to its reputation.

On tap @ Bailey’s Taproom, Portland, Sixth Anniversary Barrel Aged Fest. Lightly hazy brown with a finger thick head. Nothing too unusual, it seems. Oh my, how wrong. Astonishing aroma with oak barrels and balsamic vinegar, as well as a full fruitiness with nice whiffs of sour cherries. Medium body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sour with oak and tart fruits, and nice notes of green apples and wild cherries leaving a nice fruity tartness in the finish. Superb sour!

Bottle, bought in SF in August 2013.
Hazy amber with a medium head. The aroma is very nice, Sour with citrus, wood, some cherries and wine. Similar taste. Very refreshing and drinkable, a splendid beer to be honest. Almost like a beer from Cantillon. The finish was dry and with a pleasant tartness. I could have another one.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(6. Aug. 2013, draft from City Beer, SF - 2011 edition) Golden-red and clear, like liquid gold with an orange tint. Nose is sour. Boom. Not any brett really, but a surprising amount of barley or malt at least, without the sweetness though. I got oak, pinot and a hard to define fruitiness. Taste is fantastically sweet and sour, tremendous depth for a sour, the oak barrels punches your whole mouth; sharply on the tip of your tongue - clean, but rich - and more round and woodsy in the back. Almost feels like someone poured in a glob of cherry soda. Beautiful.

Bottle. Inviting nose of wood, cherry, stemmed fruits. Slightly hazy red. Flavor is of dried cherries and a slight woody tannin flavor with a drying sourness. Excellent balance of fruit and sour.

375ml bottle shared. Pours a dark amber. Funk and sour aroma. A bit of vinegar and grapes on the nose. Smooth without a jolt of tart, yet sour enough to really pucker. Nice and balanced sour.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Då jag vill kalla mig själv som en passionerad novis kring genren sour/wild ale. Så..tycker jag trots mitt okunnande att det här skriker hantverk, passion och känsla. Syran kittlar svalg och tunga. Rödvinsfat närvarande men pinot noir...och brettanomyces hör enl. vinlagar inte ihop. Men skit samma..touchen av rödvinsfat ger denna genomtänkta bryggd en bra skjuts. Vågar dock inte tänka på vice versa. Alltså pinot noir smaksatt med sour/wild ale. Hur som helt en snuskigt bra upplevelse!
