4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is smoky barny brett, some wood, some spices. Smoky woody brett, grapes, red fruit and much more. Heavy stuff.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. 170 out of 480. Finally able to get rid of this... Bottle opens with a hiss, poured and carbonation poured out aggressively and yields a slightly hazy apple cider, somewhat transparent, and topped with a thin wispy white head... Aroma of Brett and pineapple, earth and lightly tart. Meh and not that exciting... Flavors are more of the same with a dusty grapefruit Brett presence. Light bodied, somewhat effervescent, with active carbonation. Really grapefruity overall.

Murky orange, small bubbly medium sized head. Creamy texture. Fresh spicy, lemon grass and a bit of fermented fruit and wheat. Light sour, taste is better than the aroma. Bit plucky. Not very special though. Nice rate. Thanks Menno/John!
