Picked this up because it was sour and was from california. Solid beer overall though i feel like rye and bertancomyces clash together.

Bottle from misterburd -- cheers! I waited on this one about six months to let it develop. Disappointing: the brett and rye don’t assert themselves much, and despite all of the complicated tasting notes this just tasted like kinda random, malty homebrew.

Quite sweet and a little boozy. There are some tart notes as well. Decent.

Tap room - Light grassy and sweet notes with a touch of pepper. Clear gold with a decent white head. Peppery, lemon and some yeasty notes. Bitter finish and OK.

bomber bottled 4/11/14 . Aroma of spices and grains. Nice amber color with a small-bubbled head. Carbonation is tingly on the tongue. This beer was hoppier than anticipated due to its age. A stronger alcohol flavor and % than I’d desire. I was also hoping for some tartness.

Hype exceeds the brew. Aroma is modest Brett with little rye. Relatively clear Amber for an unfiltered ale. $11.99 for 750 ml was too expensive.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Super nice aroma of fruit and a little funk. Taste is as nice with hayish tones paired with a little fruit.

Bottle to tulip. Mildly hazy dark amber, highly carbonated, bubbly head. Aroma of apple cider, mild warm spices, very mild funk. Complex taste sweet apple-ish backbone yet dryness comes in quickly with earthiness and mild sourness and old-school hops. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 750ml bottle from Hoboken Vine, 1/10/16
Aroma: The aroma is rye malt and spices, some yeast, a bit of fruit, lighter aroma overall
Appearance: It pours an unclear amber-orange color with a beige head and some spotty lacework
Flavor: Tastes very clean, light sweet, lightly tart too, light-medium bitter, spice finish
Palate: Lighter bodied, with average carbonation, and just an overall very clean mouthfeel
Thought this was an interesting beer in the fact that the rye and spice were really the majority of what came through in both flavor and aroma. As I let it warm I kept expecting something else to show up like a more pronounced yeast component, funk, some citrus, or something else to really step up, but all those components remain fairly subtle throughout. I really did enjoy drinking this, but overall it is quite subtle. With that subtly comes plenty of respect from me, as there’s nothing to cover any flaws and there aren’t any flaws present. This one is made to be drank not pondered, and there ain’t nothing wrong with that. Super drinkable. I’d have believed this was anywhere from 4% up. At 8.5% clearly this is a dangerous one. If your looking for something that drinks like a table beer with twice the alcohol this is a great choice.
