Bottle via Provisions. Pours a light orange with minimal head. Aroma is funky but nothing more than a middle of the road wild/sour beer. There is some citrus coming through but nothing that complex. Taste is extremely acidic sour that burns the throat on the first sip. White wine notes abound. Just overly acidic but not unpleasant but could see how it might be off putting for some. Not the most sour beer I’ve had but close. Overall, glad this one is fairly available right now.

Bottle with Chris at Ray’s. Pours a hazy yellow with some white head. Nose of lemon, vinegar, oak, some funk. Very tart. Had this right after a Doesjel so it was pretty disappointing.

Pours pale yellow with no head. The nose is lemons, vinegar, barnyard funk and a little medicinal. The taste is massive tart. no balance. The texture is crisp but has an unpleasant burn in the back of the throat from the amount of acid, the body is heavy and finish is long

Lemon citrus concentrate, highly attenuated, vinegar galore. Extremely sour, possibly the most sour commercial beer I've had, and I love it. Highly polarizing, to say the least. Makes a great addition to rhubarb cobbler.

Almost a perfect sour. Funky aroma, acidic flavor without being over bearing. Goes really really well in a B&T with KBS.

Saurer Antrunk mit gesüßten Essignoten. Künstlich, brennend im Rachen, besonders im Abgang disharmonisch. 8/11/8/7/9/8

Bottle through recent trade. Pour has a yellow golden color and a ring of white foam on the glass. Aroma has sweet fruit, dry white grape, lemon, medium acidity, and some yeasty funk. Mouth feel is light and there is basically non existent carbonation. Flavor is quite sour and abrasive but it does not dry out and the lack of carbonation is killer. Hints of sweet fruit, grape skins, lemon rind, rough on the acidity, and a lingering burning finish.

750ml bottle from Alan. Pale hazy yellow with a white head. Huge amount of lemon vinegar, light funk, some other citrus - very hard to discern anything past the vinegar. Sour that puckers your entire mouth, moderate body, incredibly dry, mild carbonation. Could only drink so much of this before I had to give it to someone else, definitely not balanced but if you like this kind of pure sour then worth trying.

Pretty sure this is the most sour I’ve ever tasted. Pure lemon, with a ranch dressing-like funkiness. I am not a fan of the style, but if you’re going for a crisp, sour, acetic acid flavor, this is going to be a superlative ale.
