3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 750ml bottle.
Hazy, orange-amber with a huge, billowing khaki head and very good lacing.
Aroma of citrus, hay, barnyard, fruit and bread.
Taste of funky fruit, bread, hay, caramel and pine.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
A rather nice interplay of funk and hops. The slight tartness is balance by the solid malt background.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle dated 11 June 2014.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy to bronzed and slight cloudy orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that became slightly foamy to an extent and died with a slight amount of bubbles glossing to the sides of the glass. Still, there’s lacing running here and there along the glass.
The smell had a nice sweet to spicy to floral to sticky fresh citrus note driven into a deviously suspicious yet subtle yeasty to peppercorn combination.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to combine and flavor sweet and lightly spiced. There’s a nice light spicy floral aftertaste leading to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and displayed a decent amount of carbonation on my palate.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Sour/Wild ale to me because I find it to be mostly balanced and not overbearing in the sour/funky department. I’d have again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This one surprised me. Fairly different ot what I’m used to and I have had plenty of IPA’s. Had massive floral focus with an almost tea-like feel to it. Loaded with lavender reminiscent of Earl Grey with heavy underlying apricot and cooked orange. Sticky and resinous but all in check. Very well prices for a 750 too. Very nice drop

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brownish gold, lightly clouded. Small tan head. Quite bready, some light basement funkiness, earthy. A light touch of honey. Bitterness seems to just edge out sweetness for predominance, both followed by a much lighter sour edge. Maybe even a bit of fruit on the way out as the beer warms up. Medium body, quite chewy. Bit of acidity, not a terrible amount of carbonation. Decently long finish. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber pour with a light beige head. Aroma is funk/sour, barnyard. Taste is funk, sour, dry, a little sweet. Nice malty base. The hoppy aftertaste blends with the sour funk. Best thing about this tasty treat is how the flavors meld together yet are distinct. Great lacing.

From Bomber. Poured orange, white, big, foamy head; nice lacing all over the glass. Aroma of fruit, floral hops, malts and some yeast. Taste is slightly bitter, certainly fruity; hops and malts nicely balanced. Very interesting beer, qui enjoyable. Not bad at all.
