UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 Stone Sour Fest 2012. Very neat, mostly to-style berliner with graininess, lemony spritzy quality, very drinkable, great for a hot outdoor beer festival. A bit sour...not as good as remember.

ClarkVV (6100) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Draught at Green Street, July 2013
Lightly hazy appearance is a soft golden yellow with an initially large white head that recedes steadily to cover.
Lovely lactic notes in the nose are quite pungent, as wheat pinches in on the corners giving some cream and nuttiness. Very good strength of aroma and it seems quite complex in its variation on acidity, with wine-like notes, acetic notes and very light mustiness.
Strongly acidic up front, it softens some as the wheat and wood tannins catch up and provide something for all the acids to sink in to. Ample, almost creamy mouthfeel propelled on by an engaging carbonation that never gets loose or fizzy. Cheese, yogurt, light vinegar and a long drawn out lactic finish that allows a touch of sweetness in as it warms. Awesome stuff, glad they sent some out this way.

TURDFERGUSON (4051) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Tap at rrbf. Pours hazy straw golden with a small fizzy white head. Nose is strongly acetic and lactic with notes of vinegar, peach, citrus, and pear. Flavor shows some oak/wood upfront, with more funky barrel, light dry white wine, olives, and a dry, sour and puckering finish. Awesome stuff but a bit over the top to session on! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2013
On tap at Chucks Hop Shop - great find! Pours a nice golden yellow, frothy white foam atop and much higher clarity than I had anticipated. Nose is lacto, grain, hints of soil and hay, a bit of lemon and green grape skins. Flavor packs a punch! Nice and sour with lemon and citrisy acidity. Nice and refreshing with crispy carbonation and a thin body - off dry finish that quickly makes me salivate. This one is probably the best american version Ive had to date - really fine job. Serving type: on-tap 08-09-2012
