(750ml bottle, courtesy of thirdeye11 and travita) Pours a hazy amber body with a small white head. Aroma of grapes, horseblanket, barnyard, apple skin, herbs, and mustiness. Mouthwatering, puckering acidic flavor with berries, vinegar, and lemon with a dry finish. Sour is an understatement and I love it!

Bottle… Tower of Power Sour Hour Deel TweeThis beer rocks!… Mostly clear amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The bouquet consists of funky cheese, grilled sirloin tips and the fresh rubber soles on a recently purchased pair of sneakers. Medium to full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is intensely sour and fruity – tropical mélange and a blend of peach and apricot. There is tasty malt sweetness, but it is so very out-trumped by the beer’s intense acidity. Even at room temperature, the outstanding flavor is as sour as all get-out with only a touch of malt sweetness. Finishes sour and lightly sweet. Big-time kudos to Dstructo for sharing this world class wild ale!

Bottle thanks to Kan, big thanks as always! Poured a slight hazy amber with a purple hue and a near white head that dissipated somewhat quickly. Aroma was overall sour with acidic fruits, but an odd late note of popcorn kernels. Flavor was began slightly sweet with a quickly growing sour fruit and acidic notes that lead to a nice finish.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 30, 2010
22oz courtesy of ygtbsm94. Wow another knock out from Santa Fe. Appearance is certainly not unblended lambic: there is a massive geuze like head that towers high in the Cantillon tumbler above a cloudy deepish amber color. Aroma is malty, funky, cream of wheat, some vinaigrette, citrus fruits. Taste is a powerful acedic sour, Granny Smith apples, apple cider vinegar, full sour, almost spicy/prickly on the palate.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2010
Wash. DC tasting. golden, thin white head vinegary palate, light malts, deep tartness, puckering mouthfeel with lasting apple sourness. Yes this is indeed, a great wild ale, definitely on the very sour side. Dry-crispy palate and finish, and yes, it’s vinegary all the way. Tasty.

Bottle thanks to thirdeye11 and travita. Pours with a large tan head that fades over a a golden body. Aroma of burnt popcorn, fruit, vanilla, alcohol, and sourness. Taste is acidic, sour, fruity, some diacetyl, but very sour, sour, sour. Very dry, tannic and acidic. Well done spontaneously fermented beer.
