4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Holy Christ this is sour! 25oz bottle. This one has been taunting me in my cellar to drink it, pours out a nice lighter golden yellow hue. Aromas are a smack in the face, in fact my wife could smell it from across the room, powerful lemon zest aromas, screaming acidity, a little funk. Palate is weak only because of how sour and acidic this one is. Fruit is up front then a ripping acid hits the mid and makes you feel like a hole is getting drilled in your stomach. It finishes long with a reverberating cascade of lemon warheads on the way down. I’m splitting my bottle between tonight and tomorrow, share this one for sure.

750ml bottle thanks to Steve. Pours out a crisp pale straw color topped with a ring of a head. Nose is vinegar some wood and fruit. Taste is more of the heavy vinegar tartness

sour trash. This is vinegar, salad dressing. Again, bruery is terrible, stop buying them. This isnt beer, this is overpriced salad dressing.

Thanks Josh. Pours a bright golden color with a tart funky aroma. Just all around sour that settles in the stomach. Pretty much what I expected it to be. Glad I got to try it.

From notes. Tasted on 10/21/12 from a capped 750mL bottle, big thanks to Curtis. Pours hazy light orange with some thin, bubbly lace. The nose is very sour with tons of lemon, white wine vinegar, and oaky vanilla. The flavor is a bit acetic and more vinegar than citrus, with the oak coming through nicely. The body is medium and very tannic with very light carbonation and a long, ridiculously sour, white wine vinegar finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle.
Aroma is rather acidic with a bit of a vinegar note. Some light oakiness with light tropical fruit, moderate citrus and a hint of funk.
Pours a hazy, golden orange with a small, thin, white head that quickly disappears to the edge where it lingers.
Flavor is very acidic with a bit of acetic acid along with a lot of lactic acid. Medium light oak notes with light tropical fruit and citrus. Faint funky, musty notes. Low bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a better beer than people claim, but the acidity is a bit acetic. Nice fruit and light funk and oak. This blended with Rueze would probably be really nice. I like the character of this beer outside of the acidity.

Clear yellow gold in color... Aroma of stinky feet, white vinegar, Chardonnay oak, like a cantillon gueuze... Flavor is crazy tart, lots of vinegar, citrus, and sour lemon... Tons of barnyard funk... Solid

after 3 other really good sours i was ready for a letdown here. never happened. this was the favorite of a couple guys in our group, and my no. 2 after the amazing sour in the rye. the white vinegar in the aroma and aftertaste is fantastic, and this beer pulls off being nearly bracingly sour while having a super soft palalte and feel. awesome!!!"

Looks like orange water. Nose is so freaking acidic. The taste is holy crap. like the most sour thing I’ve ever tasted ever. Lots of vinegar, some citrus and oaky notes. mostly just hard to finish a glass of this. my mouth is watering just writing this review. so sour.

Sample at Kurtkeller 012: Bruery-tastic 01 on 05/16/2014. Hazy pale yellow color with a medium thin white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of funky fruits, oak and yeast. Light to medium body with a mouth-puckering vinous and citric character, along with oaky and herbal yeast notes. The finish is sour with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Good Sour all around.
