3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours deep, hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma of sourness, light fruits, some light spice and rye, and some citrusy bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A good sour.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Randall. Poured into a snifter. White head that was zapped away to leave nothing. Amber reddish in color. Orange like and citrus nose with some gland watering tartness. Flavor is similar with a chest wrenching tartness. Not the most sour but upper 20% if not 10%. Drops off quicky and finishes quite dry. Still puckering on every sip after. Nice fruit expression but not having the original I’d say its good plus. But not great. Overall the beer is very enjoyable and would buy another bottle if offered.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle pours a very dark amber with some spitty white head. Nose is mostly tart, lots of grapefruit pith and pulp, some medicine, funk, a little worm wood. Flavor is very tart, not just grapefruit and kumquat tart, but medicinal, lactic, some light candy, a flick of grain. Full, tart finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Deep amber, reddish hue, thin frothy off-white head, spotty lacing. I am not so sure what Kumquats smell like, but what I get is a sweet and strong cloud, crow, or lingonberry type aroma. Sweet and tart it smells, and boy does it taste sweet and tart. Fairly dry, puckering too. Faint woodiness, oak. Reminds me of scandinavian preserves, of the low shrubby variety. Great on toast. Not out of this earth brightness, but sweet, tart, and dry. Respectable beer!   Thanks Rob!

Bottle. Clear burnt orange pour with an off white head. Kumquat aromas. Sour and tart with kumquat, lemon, and citrus highlights. Decent body and mouthfeel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy copper gold from the bottle with thin lacy off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is sweet caramel and citrus up front, then a nice lactic sour ending. Taste is super sour and funky, hint of tannic wood makes by sweet citrus. Pretty darn good.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours orange with a golden hue and creamy beige head. Aroma brings sweet citrus unique flavors, definitely the kumquats with super subtle funk and tang. Flavor brings tangy citrus fruit with a big tart body that makes the mouth pucker with linings of tropical fruit so pleasant on the palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle courtesy of Madbeerbaron. Murky unfiltered deep copper red-orange. Intense boozed out island tones. Juicy, really just shows off the Kumquat more and more. Out there on the fringe, interesting sour experiment. Would’ve scored more but lacks finesse.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer No. 50 from The Bruery. Red-orange pour with a white head. This is definitely a delicious sour. Up front I get a lot of funk and tropical fruits, including pineapple and mango (and presumably kumquats), as well as some leather, biscuit malt and rye. Puckering, but still very easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.
