>> Deep cola brown pour, okay foam. Balanced roast coffee nose, nothing Brett that I can detect, more pumpernickel bread. Taste is richer and malty, excellent bread crust, pumpernickel, minerally. Good body, aerated, high carbonation, balanced bitterness. Nothing about this is sour/wild- pretty much just a rye brown ale.

Mep3222 (1498) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Barnyard aroma with oaky cherries and some lactic finish. Taste adds some peppery from the rye. I would say this is 50/50 lactic sour and funky. Not too sour, maybe 3 or 4 sour. Very complex and flavorful. Some nice woody and cherry flavors come through. Even with the funky sour this is a nice beer, but would like the lactic sour pushed up a little. But the more I drink the more I like the balance of flavors. Really nice beer. A bit low carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From growler. Nice golden red. Not much of the rye coming through in aroma or flavor. Just a little spice. Good brett character over the spicy. Another good sour from Bells.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Taster at Jungle Jimís Barrel-Aged Beer Bash 2015. Mildly hazy amber orange color. Thin ring of white head, leaving decent splotches of lace. Oaky bright bretty nose. Good spicy rye in the flavor, as well as a touch of citrus -- which seems like it comes from the hop more than the brett. Satisfying level of bigger bitterness, moderate sour, a tasty combo here. Light sweet. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of slick texture, then slightly dry in the finish. Lighter carbonation, pleasantly tingly. A very interesting, tasty and unique sour ale.

Sampled at the STL Hops 7th Anniversary Party - Pours orange / bronze with a beige head. The aroma has tartness, some berries and cherries. It has a medium / light husky body with mild rough carbonation. The flavor start with light sourness, light caramel, sweet tarts and grainy bugs. The finish has some papery aspect and is more malty. Interesting.

A hazed golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with light Brett and ground cherries, light butterscotch, pleasant. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity and tart ale with light cherry notes, Brett notes, cork character, nice. On tap at Syracuse Beer fest November 2014.

Draft pull into a tulip. The beer pours a murky copper brown. There is a small tan head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is straight berries. Raspberry and blueberry are abundant. The taste is tart up front with lots of berry and grape flavors that last throughout. It is fairly easy to drink and very refreshing. Overall a tasty beer. It should be noted that I did not pick up on the Brett yeast really, however I also was in no condition to be tasting beers at this time.
