750ml corked and caged bottle from Beers of the world. Pours a hazed gold, white head. Aromas of sour wheat. Tart. Semi dry. More like a Berliner than a sour. Watery and weak. Meh.

750ml bottle shared with Trevor211 at a party he hosted for my return to Seattle. Slight hazed gold, small white foam. Huge fruity tart beer, rich and juicy, head-filling sour. Impressive and big tart lemon. Citrusy. Very nice beer.

SPDickerman (989) - Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Pours hazy golden yellowish orange with a large fluffy white head. Smells basically like sour hay. Taste is tart, light funk, soft sweetness. Light-bodied with a smooth texture and prickly mouth-carbonation, Uinta Crooked Line Birthday Suit: 21st Anniversary finishes with a lingering soft tartness.

superspak (2822) - Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/9/2014. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, lime, orange zest, green apple, white grape, pepper, coriander, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, wheat, cracker, white vinegar, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spice, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of bit lemon, lime, orange zest, green apple, white grape, pepper, coriander, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, wheat, cracker, white vinegar, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness and light-moderate tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, orange zest, green apple, white grape, hay, straw, grass, coriander, pepper, wheat, cracker, white vinegar, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spice, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/spice/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly prickly/acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent sour saison style. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, spice, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the balanced acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5078) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2014
From the 11/2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-amber color with an enormous fluffy orange-white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was tart and sour with sour patch candies and hints of pepper and chalk. The flavor was very sour, tart and fruity with citric acid, sour patch candies and yeast. Long tart and sour citric acid finish. Medium body. Interesting.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Tap @ Prefunk: cloudy gold color with no head. Flat vinegar aroma, sour cream. Super acidic flavor and sour to the max. Pretty tasty for the style, not as sweet as others.

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2014
[Bottle (750ml) shared with GregClow, Radek, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a small diminishing bubbly white head. Aroma is sour and citrusy along with some herbs, grain and wheat. Flavour of sour citrus, light herbs and a bit of wood in the finish. Average bodied. A bit too one-dimensional for me, the Farmhouse aspect of it gets lost.

BVery (6939) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Sampled via bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Golden pour. Really nice tart and sour citrus in this. Bold. I really liked this one.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
2014-09-26. Hazy yellow orange body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma has a touch of cereal grains, strangely but pleasantly fruity. Flavour is sharply sour up front but becomes refreshingly so after a few sips. Light lemon character lingers, lemon rind and pith. Smooth avg bodied palate, modest carbonation. 3+ Tasty. Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo
