3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought in SF in August 2013.
Hazy golden with a small white. Aroma of brett, oak, hops and apples. The taste was good but not as good as the the aroma. Quite mild with brett, some fruit, oak and yeast. Nicely drinkable.

Ale Alpharetta December Meeting. Maybe time and place and the fact that not but one other sour made it out, but this was the best beer of the day. Citric acid, medium/heavy sour, sour green apple, fruity brett, chardonnay, oak. Wonderful. Bright, tart, dry, brett yumminess.

Another excellent example of a five out of five beer. Balanced and somewhat acidic tart Chardonnay Apple cider vinegar characteristics aroma is pear bready yeast peach and mango. It ends extremely dry carbonated very well perfect brew in my opinion.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to dbuckingham, thanks man! Pours a hazy dark yellow with a thin white bubbly head and some spotty lacing, aroma is tart at first, but the brett and dryness really comes through as well, the front end of the flavor was much more fruity than I was expecting, with a good amount of funk and some barnyard notes in the finish, pretty tart in the finish but not mouth puckering sour, mouthfeel is light and tingly, the abv is completely hidden, would have thought this was 5%, pretty damn good.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 On tap at city beer SF. Pours a straw yellow with a frothy white head. Superb lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of grapes, funk, lemon zest, Chardonnay and biscuit malts. Taste is quite tart up front then settles. Chardonnay like bitterness clings to the palate with a lemon zest making for a refreshing crisp finish. Palate coated in oak from the Chardonnay. Aging has worked a treat - booze is disguised beautifully. World class beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
