What’s not to love about a sour? Pours light amber with lots of carbonation. Aroma is heavy with a sour vinegar odor. Taste is somewhat sour and a bit subdued. Palate feel is not out of the ordinary. Overall it’s a great to have an opportunity to try this one and it was worth standing in line for it. Bottle 143/480.

Tmoney99 (11093) - 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.

zach8270 (3585) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2012
(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a very fizzy white head. Aroma is a lot hoppier than I thought it would be for a sour ale. Nice Brett funk with a grassy and earthy undertone. Big sour, tart and yet hoppy flavor. Very bitingly sour with an acidic aftertaste but that really nice and semi-sweet Brett finish. Interesting tasting and rather tasty.

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.

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.

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.

Vaiz (3568) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange pour. Aroma full of fresh brett, funky and spicy, but not too cheesy. Flavor is spicy and slightly sour. Nice and mild brett brew.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is smoky barny brett, some wood, some spices. Smoky woody brett, grapes, red fruit and much more. Heavy stuff.

thome50 (1083) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle #210 shared at a birthday party by someone who got it off Reddit. Pours a hazy light orange with small white head. Aroma is paper, slight wet cardboard and some lemon zest sourness. Not as bad as that might sound. Taste is some more wet paper, oxidized notes, brett up front, in the middle and finishing it off. Still the slight lemon sourness works here. Overall, I was expecting a lot worse but found this to be a nice beer that is refreshing if you could have more than a few oz pour.
