Pour out of 750 mL bottle, pour is slightly hazy orange with thin white head, aroma brought notes of nice funk, brett, nice oak, chardonnay, hints of nice biscuit, bread, slight lemon notes, really nice. Taste is even better, nice biscuit, bread, lemon, nice funky, slight oak, chardonnay/white grape notes, finishing fairly funky, nice grass, hints of grapefruit. Very, very tasty.

JorisPPattyn (8913) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2015
Small rim over fully hazy yellow beer. Liqueur, perfumey, but in a very good, slightly vinous way. Fruit as citrus, banana; vanilla, maybe even Bourbon. Citrus², like drinking a sweet(ish) lemon, would that exist. Again vanilla. Sharpish feel, faint astringency, light to meidum body. Very good one! Many thanks to Don!

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Lemony yellow with a bubbly robust head. Zesty citrus aroma, with big flavours of pineapple and guava. Light funk, lightly lactic, with a creamy mouthfeel. So crazy good!

slowrunner77 (8356) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2015
This sour, the forst beer I’ve tried from AA, started really good and just got better and better. Nearly 10% abv was not detected at all, and the carbonation level and mouthfeel were soft and perfect for this beer. The aroma and flavor were cheesy funky, slightly sweet, oaky, vinous, and complex as all get out. Got better and better as it opened up. Expensive, but worth it.

marcus (8292) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle from City Beer. Pours clear blonde with a transient off-white head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a mellow fruity light malt flavor with a dry wine finish. Refreshing and tasty.

Bottle shared at RBWG, the Grand Tasting portion. Pours a hazy pale gold with a soft white head. Notes of lemon, yogurt, lactic funk, cheesecloth, sweet dough, wine grapes, and straw. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, funky, tart mouthfeel. Very good sour.

douglas88 (7795) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Big bottle picked up in Corvallis. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large white head. Deep funky flavors with toast, leaves, lemon. Light tartness, some funk, white wine, vinous at times, fluffy palate, earthy. Caramel and more citrus zest. Really good. Mellow and drinkable but complex. Impressive.
