Cask @ Ginger Man poured into an Imperial Pint (awesome!!). Has the agitated beer, bubbly with no substance small head that comes off a cask. But it has a beautiful hazy, glowing, orange-golden color. Aroma is bretty, lemony, and sour, mmm I like. Its very strong on the tangy, tart lemony brett, which reminds me a lot of young Canitllon lambic. Taste is not as strong but the lemony brett really kicks in at the end of the flavor. Its lightly drying and lots of tart, sweet-less miscellaneous berries sprinkled throughout. Definitely reminds of kegged young Cantillon gueze. Has that undercarbonated cask mouthfeel. I would really love to see the final product when these get blended and bottled in the future.

Lovely sour tang. Mixed with a slight but mellowing wine/grape end note. Easy to drink. great introduction to sours for the uninitiated.

NOTB EBF. More of a funky, peppery aroma than I expected from this with some light tart fruit. Taste was overall light, with some tart fruit, with some peppery and light barnyard funk, light lemon rind. Dry. very good.

On Cask @ Rattle N Hum, NYC. Pours like a beauty, hazy gold with a hint of grey. Tasted very lambic like. Slightly sour and funky which was nice , but also incredibly salty. Going to have to go against the grain on this one..

(Old BA rate - cask) Hazy orange copper color; poured with absolutely no head. No visible carbonation. Sour aromas up front, bit of a white grape tartness. Touch of funkiness in the aroma, but not dominant. Sour taste mirrors aroma, nice mellow bit of the wildness comes in. Tart, but not that snappy. Damn solid. Lighter MF, dryish, next to no carbonation (cask). Even though itís on cask, a touch of carbonation would notch this brew up for me. Really drinkable, as itís not overwhelming in the sour and funk levels. Refreshing and interesting. Classy!

Taster at the brewery...then a pint. Man, this stuff is great. And they do growler fills too! $8/pint is OK with me, but a little hard for me to plunk down 35 bones (25 for the fill + 10 for the glass) for a growler. Maybe next time. Yellow. Great sour Brett aroma and flavor. Lemon citrus flavor. Insanely easy to drink. excellente!

Funk, citrus, yeast and wood in the nose. Poured a cloudy dull yellow with a nice sized sudsy head. Flavors of citrus, funk, wood. Tons of lemon with sweetness to it. Palate: Refreshing and smooth for a sour. Overall: I was so impressed I got a growler fll. I didnít have that old book smell with the old barrel taste some of these beers have when they are this young. Super balanced and super drinkable.

Cask @ Blind Tiger in NYC. Nearly flat pour with a nice cloudy amber look. Aroma is pleasantly sour with some nice acidity, citrus, light funk, and sourness throughout. Flavor is nice and tart, but not mouth achingly so - Citrus and brett meld well with a nice mouthfeel. This stuff disappeared so fast it blew my mind. Really nice sour.

Pours opaque golden brown with no head. Tart fruity nose and flavor. Some citrus and funk. Too short on the finish.

On tap at Beachwood. This was my second favorite beer on the night (not counting O. Rouge, which Iíve had multiple times and love). Appears cloudy gold with no head. Aroma is lemon zest, funk and some underripe white peach. Flavor starts with that lemony quality, and moves forwards with Brett notes. Actually reminds me a little bit of RR Temptation in this way. Palate is medium in fullness, not too much carbonation. Finishes with a lemony sour zip, which was very satisfying.
