3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle pours a light amber orange color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to reveal some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruit with some yeast and a hint of lemon. Taste is a bold lemon tartness with a fruity sweetness and a dry yeasty finish. My bottle states 7.8% so is the 2013 edition. Definitely fits the style and is quite tasty. Highly recommended for lovers of sour ales.

On tap @ Downtown Johnny Brownís: Poured with a thick 2-inch pillow of foam head in a snifter glass. Liquid was a light peach hue. Aroma was sour and has a scent of lemon zest and wood barrel. Palate is well refined with the tiniest of tiny carbonation bubbles which went down easy. The flavor is sour, of course, with intense taste of lemon or lime juice paired with an earthy taste of wood. Yeast is much stronger than some other sour ales I have tasted. One of the sourest sour ales Iíve drunk. Impressed.

Bottle. Hazy golden pour with white head. Some light tart fruit and Brett aromas. Tart fruit, similar to a sour brune/red.

750 shared with beer homies... Pours a dark orange with a decent off white head that reduces to almost nothing. I can pick up hints of oak, tart sour astringency. Taste really shines, pleasant sour tartness, a bit of oak, and a slight rye spice. Carbonation is just enough to light up your taste buds. Great beer, I wish I had another.

I enjoy most everything from The Bruery, and I have been in sour mode for some time now, so Iím not surprised that I loved this beer. Iíd really like to try it side by side with Russian River Consecration and see which one I like better.

Oh my, so sour and so sweet. Pours amber with a thin head the aroma is sour with hints of wood and fruit. The flavor is quite sour but not overpowering. The oak comes through with some fruit. Extremely smooth for the style. Thirst quenching like a lemonade on a hot summer day.

The rye malt works nicely in this sour/wild ale. Now Iím interested in trying the version with kumquats.

On tap at Barcade for beer weekís Bruery event. Aroma is sweet and citrussy like peaches and lemons. Pours hazy orange with minimal head but decent enough carbonation. The taste is incredible. Mouth puckering underripe nectarines balance out a solid barnyard funk. This is a great and intense American sour. I now see why itís $20 a bottle. I kind of want more.

750ml bottle thanks to Victor at Brianís suprise birthday tasting. Pours slightly cloudy golden amber with a thick white head. Aroma of tart barnyard funkiness, stone fruits and citrus. Taste is clean and tart with citric funkiness with notes of lemons, cherries and lots of woodiness. Really nice.
