meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle@Home #223. Very medicinal aroma. Hazy, gusher, beige head, amber. Sweetish, light sourish, loads of band-aid and horseblanket and cardboard. Very dry. Yuck!

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle shared at Natifest 13. Poured a cloudy golden color with a mostly lasted fizzy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and sour yeast aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet & sour fruit finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

DrSilverworm (6944) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Taster from a bottle shared at Natifest 2013. Thanks to Jstax, bottle 188/480. Hazy orange amber color. Little off-white head. Smooth, soft carbonation of moderate strength. Dry finish. Good bigger tart taste. Some [grainy], farmhouse aromas. Light lemon citrus. I like this one.

phaleslu (6810) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by JStax- thanks again, Jeremy! Bottle 188/480. Pours a hazed orange-gold with a small white head. Aroma of Bretty funk, floral notes, citrus- mostly orange, tropical fruits, sweet malts- so far, so good. The flavor pretty much offers more of the same. Plenty of funk, florals, and citrus peel. A bit of basement/cobweb mustiness. Wine barrel character is subtle. The fruit and sourness are very subdued here. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This beer is unfairly maligned. The only knock I could understand is that it seems restrained, but given other FFF sours that haven’t turned out well, that seems like a welcome characteristic.

Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a white head of foam. Smells yeasty and bratty with a light peppercorn presence. Taste is tart throughout. Light and airy body.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2013 sampled at NatiFest 2013 (thanks JStax) - murky orange with white head. sour. straw and wheat flavors. sweet and sour with a hop kick.

AndyReynolds (916) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle shared at Natifest thanks to somebody. I get the brit right off the bat, some cheese, some disappointment, and some hops. palate is different. The sour is there for sure, but it is not my normal taste for a sour. The aftertaste is what kills it for me.

b3shine (5825) - Indiana, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Bomber to taster at NatiFest (thanks JStax). Looks solid; a semi-transparent orange with white lacing. Smells wild with a fairly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. All brett and no lacto or pedio.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
750 ml bottle picked up from the brewery (Munster, IN). Pours a hazy golden amber hue, light hued edges and a well hazed body overall. Frothy whitish head atop dies to a film, laces well. Richer vibrant fruity and hoppy nose, oak and plastic. Some vanilla, barnyard, and melon, tangerine, more plastic. Some funk, cobwebs. Initial is a bit more odd and perplexing, rich bitter and bretty elements play on the palate. A bit tart into the backend, I get plastic, cobwebs, dust, and basement. Some bready malts, the hops are bitter but lose some of the flavor, still a push of grapefruit and rind, lemony elements. A touch more oak, more brett, cobwebs, and soft cheese. Plastic. Overall, it’s a bit messy. An odd beer.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle shared by Adam. Thanks? Pours a lightly hazed orangey gold with a stiff white head. Nose is chloraseptic & band-aids, faint barnyard funk. On tasting, it is dry, mildly astringent and solventy. Far from clean and just sloppy. The dry hop is lost and the brett is oppressive...
