3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 form Rite Aid, bottled on March 24, 2014. That was a really rapid trip to the shelf. The pour is a cloudy yellow with a fizzy white head. The aroma is great and I have a good feeling about this one. It’s wild, cheesy with tartness like lemons and a subtle backdrop of earthy hops. The palate is a little spritzy and dry. I like a lot of what is going on here in the flavor: subtle earth and wood suggestions, aggressive citrus and vinegar flavors. But the sourness is very sharp and flirts with being chalky or like straight acid even at around 50 degrees. But it improves the warmer it gets and at close to room temperature it’s nice. I do still enjoy the aroma more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

Bottle, as pictured. Very very different. Cool. Fits the bill of a sour farmhouse. Hazy golden yellow pour. Sour but not a total pucker. Little bit of spice and heavy on the citrus.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Heavy grain for the malt, light lemon for the hops, moderate musty for the yeast, with apple, wood, honey and vinegar in the background. Head is small to average, fizzy, white with no lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium amber. Flavor starts heavily acidic and sour, then finishes heavily acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation and a tart finish. Clean, crisp and tasty Sour Ale, yet remains easy to drink.

A bit bighty, but in a good way. Has a good sour taste, but not overbearing. Makes you pucker up a bit, but then want another sip.
