Wow, the barnyard on the nose almost bowls you over, which is awesome if you’re into that like I am. The puckery sourness is also almost over-the-top. This really blurs the line between a super-bretty wine and beer. Only for true sour lovers! BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle shared by the brewer while attending day 1 of The Livery Anniversary party, much thanks! This is a shocking surprise in a very good way. The sourness is right where you want it, not over the top but not underwhelming either. Not funky like a gueze but clean acidic and lactic bite with moderate oak barrel tannic dryness as well. You still can find the base malt under it all. Utterly refreshing. I will seek this out the next bottle release. OUTSTANDING and for this day every bit as good as many RR offerings.

Draft. Poured a clear golden color with a mostly lasting frothy white head with good lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, wood and complex fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Poured from 750 into a tulip. Pours a medium gold color with a foamy head.
Very good depth and complex aromas of funk, sour cherries, sour citrus notes, and some tart green apples.
Really good medium body feel with good depth and notes of green apples, sour cherries and sour citrus’.
This was a great beer. Got this from a friend and am very glad I got it. Really good depth across the board with a real nice tartness to it.

Yellow-orange coloured body with some head. Just delightful summer day beer, with some oak, spice, almost cherry tartness. Full mouthfeel. Suitably carbonated, a little aging helped. Thanks WomanCan’tSail. Very good drinkability.

750ml bottle courtesy of Sammy. Cloudy burnt orange colour with almost no head; slight fruity sour aroma, more apples than cherries; much more noticeable tartness in it’s flavor. blackflag321 (689) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Draft in 10oz snifter. This is my first sour/wild ale. Tart orange very dominant. Some sourness on palate after the fruitiness fades. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2012
(750ml bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of cherry, barrel, cork, earth, and caramel. Flavor of cherry, lemon, florals, funkiness, earth, and wood with a dry finish. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2012
bottle, thanks to bu11zeye, ornage colored pour with thin white foam, flavor of fruit and mint leaves, some grass note Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of sour apple and cherry notes, as well as some biscuit and funk qualities. The flavor is similar. I get some very nice sour fruit (apples, cherries, grapes), as well as some light funk, light leather and a high level of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very refreshing and easy to drink.
