Draft a the brewpub. Translucent dark orange colours pour with a halo of off white head. Aroma is woody sour, little mouldy, funk, onion. Maybe a little oxidised on the nose. Flavour is composed of stale and sour wet grains, wet dog. Palate is funk, spicy, moderate carbonation. Lingering spicy lemon, not a huge fan. Big wet dog character.

On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Tart / astringent lemon and apricot with a interesting grain / herbal finish. More complex than a lot of the other American sours I’ve had of late but still something missing for me on this one.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured at FoBAB 2014 (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice hazy golden amber hue, a good haziness with frothy firm offwhite head. A good layer sticks around, laces well with decent stick around. Aromas are funk and skunk, dank weed with gentle oak, tannic red wine and a bit of lactic acidity. Skunky funk brett, earth and cobwebs. Weird. Initial is sour and potent, lemony and big with rind, oils, big lemon character meets lactic acidity, funk and spiciness. Skunky elements, bread, and straw. Some weird funk, dank weed, firmer sourness, light body and a bit creamy. Interesting.
