3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Amber pour with a small head. Plenty of bretty character in the nose. Barnyard, meringue, buggy wood. Taste is nice and vibrant brett and lemon sorbet. Summery, soft and simple. Vibrant structure. Very good.

From a bottle at the Brewery
Pours a light orange with a decent enough head and some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is fun, fruity and yougurty with some funk and wood character.
The flavor is tart and grapey with some lemon sourness and earthy character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled along the RBSG Bus Tour 2014. Bottle at the brewery. Weird nose with some acetone and nail polish remover character to it. Some tannins and burns in an unpleasant way. Taste is less off putting than the nose, but the chest burning sourness makes up for that.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Sour lemon and a bit of funk. Hazy orange with a frothy white head. Muddled sour notes with a woody background. This was my least favorite and I don’t think age would help. I think the Flanders Red is the culprit.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a cloudy blond beer w/ a head of mixed bubbles. It has a pineapple fruity brett nose. Tasted, it is a little sweet and quite aggressively tart w/ an aggressive bit of phenolic character, which I find pleasant at this level. This is medium bodied with crisp carbonation that compliments the dry, tannic finish. This maybe isn’t quite perfect but it is definitely a very good sour.

It poured a clear orange/golden color with a white head. The aroma was of lemon, wood, some grass and earth. The taste was of lemon, grapes, pears and some tartness. Awesome.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From short notes:
A - poured orangy amber with two finger fluffy head that dissipates to a average ring. S - the nose is a fairly nice fruity citrusy sour. Orange and lemon juice, notes of pineapple. Also so funk, wet oak, mushrooms, white wine, wheat and some sort of weird phenols. M - dry and tart. Sweet ending. Average carb and medium body. T - taste follows the nose well with the nice citrus and sour dominated by plasticy, astringent rotten pineapple. Odd.

Bottle shared @ Woodshed 3.0! Another generous soul brought this awesome bottle. 14 karat pour with a creamy ivory crown. Meyer lemon zest, freshly cut grass, earthy, dusty, oaky, and acidic. Tart unripened citrus and delicate sweet pear for balance. Nicely done.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ GT’s Cat Cabana. Thanks, Richard. Orange amber pour with a white head. Smell is quite nice. Lemon, orange zest, peach, and tart berry. A bit of oak and wine, as well. The flavor, is a totally different story. Plastic, sawdust, and lemon juice. Eek. Astringent, tannic feeling on the tongue. Salt/brine, green apple, and grass. Not a fan.
