3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Damn weird brew. Bottle at Peterís RBSG. Pours muddy yellow with little head. Aroma is 60% great sour fruit, 40% offensive nail polish. Initial flavor was offensive acetone. It ends with an in-your-face sourness that is 70% good, 30% hell. Ridiculously sharp and acetic finish. Itís as obnoxious a beer as I can imagine. I never thought any sour ale was too sour until now. Sip this with caution; it can make you gag and burn your tongue. Guess I was feeling it at this point in the night, as I finished my notes with, "lots of good things, but itís too burning paint." That was my cue to stop rating.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Peterís 2nd annual spring gathering. Pours a clear brown with no head. Smells of paint remover, acetone, and nuts. Not so good. Nasty plastic and vinyl. Loads of gross acetone. Maybe this was good once, but itís certainly not good any longer.

750 Bomber from the brewery. Pours a deep yellow with a small head. Big funky nose. Notes of oak and orange. Got to like em sour to get past the blast of mouth puckering vinegar. Nicely carbed. Flavor is definitely intense. Acidic finish. A bit pricey, but a very nice / palate cleansing sour. Try this beer if you can - certainly recommended.

Bottle thanks to knucks999
Tepid tan body. Thin, La folie-esque nose with nail polish and more tart cherry. Chocolate, tart cherry and light wood nose, cherry lingering through the finish nose dominantly. Thin body but quite puckering. Not as sour as anticipated, but definitely enjoyable in a biting way.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Pilsner Peteís RBSG. I usually love sours, but this one was a bit much. Pours muddy brown. Nose is sour apple, musk and funk. Taste is over the top rancid sour apples and sour cherries, balsamic vinegar and acetone.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle shared by beerlando, thanks! Pours light gold with a thin white head. Aroma is a variety of fruits with a huge funk in the nose. Flavor is by far one of the sourest beers I have tried, apple and lime flavors with a very dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a muddled brownish red color that is completely still with no head whatsoever.
S: A huge wave of tartness in the nose. A lot of vinegar and sour cherries along with some lemon, currants, and oak. Not too much in the way of funkiness, though.
T: This beer will melt your teeth, tongue, and innards. One of the sourest beers Iíve ever had. Tons of cherries, vinegar, lemon, and a hint of oak. Oh, and itís really friggin sour.
M: The stillness allows this acid to slide over the tongue nicely and smoothly. The beer will cause some salivation as it is just that sour.
D: I was initially not quite sure what to think of this beer. This is a sour beer that will test your endurance and the toughness of your organs, but I really enjoyed it.

750ml bottle. Thanks Josh for sharing this (and letting me know I didnít put this one in!). Poured a brownish color color with a very small sized head. Aromas of funkiness, wood, cherries, and just all around nice sourness. You can taste this one through your nose! Tastes of cherries, vinegar, citric, acetic, and funky. This was one was up front and in your face (but in a good way!).
