pdx77 (1443) - Oregon, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Taster at Saraveza’s Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival. Funky yeast notes in the aroma. Almost a lactic sourness in the flavor, with pitted fruit notes. Finishes with a clean sour tickle.

jtclockwork (8912) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold white head. Nose/taste of tart lemon, lemongrass, oak, pear, farmhouse yeast, cider like apple and soft carbonation. Medium body.

douglas88 (6322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A sour clear lacto nose, fruit. Quite tart, lemons, fresh woody sourness. The hops add a zesty flavor. Very flavorful. Certainly an ode to Cascade and the PDX Lacto obsession.

nealblind (914) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Hazy gold pour blanket of head. Aroma of lemons dusty ozone, butter, zinnias. Tastes lemon cough drop, minerals, sweet tarts. No residual sugar very refreshing. A bit sharp on the tongue.

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Cloudy gold pour, white head. Nice funk and sourness hits up front followed by some tropical fruit notes and light hoppiness. Neat beer. The Commons is a bad ass brewery

Ontape (362) - Valley Village, California, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle, another winner from The Commons. Lacto tartness and funk obvious on the nose, and I think there must be some brett in here too contributing some fruity qualities. Or maybe that’s just the Meridian hops and their fruit punch goodness? Taste is strongly tart but cleans up in the finish. Lacto funk lingers a bit, a touch of cereal too. Nice sour at 5.2% -- eminently drinkable.

marcus (6773) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle from Healthy Spirits. Pours blonde with a rich white head and a lemon aroma. There is a moderately sour light malt flavor with a distinct brett note and a tart finish that sticks to the palate.

oRos (1200) - sacramento, California, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle shared by Marcus. Aroma is dishwater. Taste is tart with some fruit. Crisp finish.

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Hazy dull straw. Aroma is fruity like fig, hibiscus, some overripe fruit stuff. Way tart, sweet like those sweet-tart candies. Now, bog myrtle was traditionally a bittering agent but this is more sour than bitter.

Ferris (4988) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
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.
