4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Easily one of the best sour beers I’ve ever had. Murky pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is acidic, tart, grassy, citric, funky. The nose on this is unbelievable. Brett is present, but not overpowering, acidity is present but not overpowering, and the malt backbone of the beer just shines through. this was a well crafted beer recipe that held the souring process amazingly well. So complex on the palate. No one flavor stands out, but all of the grassy, funky sour notes play beautifully together. What a beer!

On tap at Bangers and Lace. Hazy orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lace. Aroma of funky fruit, apple, oak and yeast. Medium body with flavors of funky citrus, yeast and wood. The finish is moderately sour with a tart apple aftertaste. Solid beer all around.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pours hazy lemon yellow with very thin white head. Nose sour, oak, light funk, hint of powder. Taste tart sour up front, then some nice citrus fruits. Late palate some tannin. Tart finish. Would be better with more carbonation.

750 ml bottle, 2013 Edition, looks like the bottling date is 09/10/13. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, and there’s a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like apricots, funk, vinegar, green apples, hay and some lemon peel. The taste is nice too, with apricot, funk, green apple, bready/grainy malt, hay, vinegar, lemon peel, and earthy flavors all noticeable. It’s nice and tart! Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s refreshing and has a good amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, certainly wouldn’t mind buying more of this in the future.
