3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml acquired via trade with mashmaster. Thanks, bud! Shared with the Pipeworks Crew. Rating #3300. Pours a rich well hazed murky amber hue, gentle orange glow, darker and dulled. A frothy beige like head is a firm layer, with some firm lacing, sticks around as a firm lacing. Aromas are a rich lactic element, lemons and pineapple, firmly sweet biscuits, toffee, and a tropical melange. Gentle bretty funk, rich oak, touches of spice. Oranges, sweeter malty elements, a touch of butterscotch at times. Richer oak, vanilla take a dominant position. Initial is richly lactic sour, a melange of fruits mix grapefruit, lemons, and crab apple. Touches of orange, pineapple, and yogurt hit with a gentle acedic quality. Fairly sour, with a sweeter richer fruit middle. growing touches of richer tart orange juice, a touch pulpy. Backend features lingering grapefruit/orange juice elements, tart and fairly sour, lactic elements. Gentle spice, firm barrel gives some touches of buttery oak. Solid. A rich sour flavor and feel on the palate despite a more fruit and buttery and vanilla laden oak nose. Enjoyed, but aroma needs work.

Bottle thanks to Adam! Pours a deep orange hazy apple juice type color. Aroma is acidic, with plenty of fruitiness, some orange and grapefruit along with a touch of cherry. Flavor is very tart, sharp and acidic on the tongue. Still a lot of orange and notes of vanilla in the finish with a lingering tartness. Medium body and a soft carbonation.

Smells great, super lactic tasting, muddy looking, very sour, very very sour, a little too sour which is a hard thing to say. Bit chalky on the palate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft into a tulip at Thirsty Monk. Man, this is some good-ass beer! The aroma is strongly funky and complex. Wild animals and vinegar and cheese are up front with hints at fruits, oak, champagne and rye. Using rye in a sour is so smart. The bold and clean funky, sourness blends perfectly with the rye-tartness. To say this is a dry beer is an understatement. There are hints at fruit, flowers, oak to back up the vinegar and barnyard flavor. This is a legit, top-notch sour.

2012. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head with a funky and spicy aroma, and this has a sweet & sour mix in the taste with some citrus. Enjoyable sour with a dry finish.

Pours light orange with a brown hue. I love the smell because it is funky, fruity, but with hints of spice. Tastes dry sour and delicious. Once again another wonderful Bruery sour. Can’t believe its 10%.
