phaleslu (9716) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2016
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy orange with a hint of red and a small white ring that lasts quite a while. Notes of vanilla, stone fruit, oak, brown sugar, fruity funk, wheat, and a bit of earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tangy, sour, sweet mouthfeel. Should definitely be reclassified as a sour/wild ale, but Ill leave that up to the California admins.

Rating #1492 - The Columbus Review - 3.13.2015 On tap @revolutionyeg #SourNFunk2015 Expectations shattered. Was expecting a mildly funky belgian style wheat beer. Hazy golden pour, bubbly white head. Aroma is brett and oaky chardonnay. Medium carbonation, crisp mouthfeel, lots of barrel and funk notes accented by soft fruits, citrus. Delightful

Crabapple nose, slight touch of butter. Hazy amber, medium head. Crabapple, twigs, funk. Finishes more distinctly wheaty. Light body, easy carbonation. Quite enjoyable when viewed as a nice sour ale. Probably should be reclassed as the catch-all sour/wild ale.
