3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
At Jerry’s in Andersonville. The rye spiciness and sour work well together. Maybe this finished a little dry for my tastes but it was still pretty good. Puckery but not cheek numbing. Serving: Tap

"This wish list item was as good or better than hoped. Near perfect balance of spice, fruit, and ample funk and tartness. Such a delicious and complex brew...there’s even hints of leather and tobacco. "

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 bottle. Amber/orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is acidic and vinous with sweet notes of stone fruit. Flavor is acidic and sour upfront with wonderful complex vinous notes in the finish and just a touch of oak. I don’t get any spicy rye notes but as is its a very good sour.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It is very acidic, tart, a lot of fruitiness, it is a complex beer, I tried the 2014 edition. Can’t find any hints of Rye, it is spicy but very subtle, and I think it comes more from the yeast. It is a very special sour, next time I will age it more time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber orange, very small head. Aroma has loads of sour notes, mainly peaches, slight hint of oranges. Extremely tart, loads of laccto, no hint of rye. Fun but a bit unbalanced for the style.
