Bottle - Nice light funky sourness with some stone fruit. Hazy gold with a light bubbly white head. Tart and funky right off the bat, but a clean easy finish. Really refreshing and light, very easy drinking.

Real brettnomyces aroma. Golden in color with a thick foam. Very tart. Some lacto. Body is light with lemon and citrus. Soured finish but not too overpowering.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2014
GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a pale yellow hue, decent haziness, frothy creamy offwhite head stays as a firm layer, ok lacing and stick around. Aromas are a bit bitter and citric, decent hops show some pineapple, lemon and florals. Gentle earth, mellow spiciness, touches of lemon. Initial is a bit citric, gentle tartness meets lemon, earth, a gentle bitterness. Touches of green apple, bread and earthiness. Subtle spice and coolness into the backend. Touches of pineapple, bitter florals and a touch of pine. Some more citrus, bigger lemony and lime slant at the backe. A touch yeasty, gentle eatrh. Nice stuff. Quite interesting. Smell a bit mellow but flavors are really on.

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color. It had a very strong dough and bread character, positively, and the sourness has a distinct fruity accent, grapes and yellow plums; highly carbonated and smooth. A bit lemony in the final.
Very good.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Ernest (6264) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly flowers (herbs), lightly yeasty (basement, barnyard), with notes of lemon juice, plastic, bile, sour apple, sage, gum. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, heavily acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, heavily acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Rather dirty Brett character leads on to a very sour, bile-like mouth experience. Pretty hard to like even though I like wild-and-sour beers.

Salmoniform (832) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Poured from tap to glass at Les Caves. Straw hue with slight haze and creamy white head that lingered. Aroma is straw, lactic, earthy, peppercorn, lemon. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice tart sourness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Finished up our Commons stash last night and this one did not disappoint. Lemony tartness and an underlying rustic yeast strain make this both a summer quencher and appealing sour. Good stuff.
