Bottle. Orange pour with some white head. Some fruit, tartness, wine, brett and oak aromas. Flavor doesn’t follow though on the nice aroma build up, has malt sweetness and almost a vinegar tone, with some light tart and wine tones.

750ml at brewery. Lots of wood flavor. Distracts a bit from the sour which is what I was after. Still a very worthy sour.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours very hazy amber color, finger-width head that quickly disappears. Fruity, boozy, carbonated flavor. Mouthfeel of sparkling juice. Goes down easy. Delicious and worth the special trip for a bottle.
Fan-flipping-tastic. That’s a tmesis.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2013 Bottle from brad and brendon shared the day of the release at Capones. Pours murky gold with thick lasting white head. Notes of chardonay barrel, grape, bubblegum, wood, lemons, funk and whiskey. Wish this was a little more tart or sour. Not bad though. Tried a batch 1 bottle 6 years out, still not crazy about this one.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I’m starting to have an appreciation for sours/wilds, but this one is just too much. The nose alone was a turnoff.

Shared by yourefragile at our sour and wild ale tasting on April 14, 2012. Thanks Michael!
The beer appears hazy and golden yellow colored with a small white head. The aroma is very pleasant, with scents of oak, brettanomyces, funk, citrus. I am a big fan of the flavor. Everything I discovered in the aroma translates beautifully into the flavor profile. Citrus, yeast, oak, funk. Alcohol content is hidden gracefully. Overall, I thought this was fabulous.

750mL at Woodshop 7. Pours cloudy, glowing gold. Fizzy white head with large formation. Heavy Brett C and B nose: cedar and pineapple blend. Fresh and tropical. Taste is juicy, melon heavy, cantaloupe, pineapple. Palate is still thicker and oily with Brett effervescence. Easily loved Brett centric blonde. An easy winner from Troegs. This is a must for a re-release or for a year round release.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle provided by Chris for Epic Tres. Pours a hazy light yellow/orange, with a half fingers worth off-white head. Nose is spicy, A little Brett, some honey, and a little phenolic. Taste follows the nose, spice and honey dOminate with some mild funk and apple in the background. Mouthfeel is light, good carbonation, dry, and a moderate finish. Good, not great, one of my least favorite of the tasting. Think I prefer splinter blue to this.
