JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Honey colored pour with plenty of white head that fades quickly. Aroma of stale citrus and yeasty notes. Flavor is tart and very citrusy, lemongrass, melon, and funky yeast. Quite delicious and refreshing.

Pours a dark golden color, light white head that dissipates quickly. Minimal sour/funk on the nose, almost reminiscent of a triple with some Brett. Pleasantly sour, hints of stone fruit and citrus with a lingering finish with cereal grains comes through.

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Color is orange white head fine foam good clarity. Lightly sour. Berry fruit tones. Nectarine. Lemons. Leather and earthy aromas. Very creamy feel despite acidity. Detectable malt spine with softened bones. Acid sharpness. Smells like chiMay yeast! Little in the way of minerality.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a hazy orange golden color with a finger of foam. Nose is a strange mix of shredded wheat, dusty hay, unripe stonefruit and cheerios. Palate has a lot more fruit, some tart lemon yogurt, almost berliner like with a solid wheat profile and layers of barnyard and stonefruit. Lingering graininess.

infinitetease (13) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a light orange color with substantial head. Nose is mildly tart, floral and slightly bready. The flavor is similar to aroma. Sour, but barely so. A bit of lemon. This is a pleasant, but certainly not outstanding beer. With the proliferation of American sours, this is an also-ran.

Beachmaster (124) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bomber into a tulip glass. Pours a cloudy light yellow, witha big white head that quickly fades, leaving minimal lacing. Nose is faint sour citrus. Taste is lightly tart, sort of like weak lemonade. Good amount of carbonation, and very short finish. A pleasant change of pace, good for a hot summer day, but nothing special.

brokensail (10917) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks, Derek. Golden pour with a white head. Lots of lemon, green apple, and yogurt on the nose. A hint of salt and green grapes. Some grass and a bit of yeast. Not bad. Flavor is a bit crackery for me, and there’s a lot of popcorn. Decent lactic sourness. Some green apple and lemon, mild grape skin as well. Hints of grass and yeast.
