On tap at Roll Out the Barrel at the Eccentric Cafť. The pour is a darker amber with a thin white head and some decent lace. The aroma is surprisingly fruity and sour with no real dominating character. The flavor is much more malt based than I was expecting. There is a light sour, but there isnít a whole lot happening there. This is somewhat disappointing. The mouth feel is thin and slick with no real carbonation to help it out. The aftertaste fades down quickly and is actually kind of forgettable. No real lingering sour as I was expecting

Aromas of cherries, baked appls, brown sugar, grapes. Hazy light brown, quite putrid looking. Fruity, earthy, funky, great balance of fruit, tartness, and subtle spice. Light-medium bodied, complex and refreshing.

On draft at ABR 2014. Hazy amber pour with a white head. Funky Brett nose - nice citrus and earthy taste. A hint of fruit in the finish. Super clean.

Sampled at ABR. Hazy orange pour: Earthy, rye spice. Citrus and pine. Some Brett in here. Really good.

jredmond (7852) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Draft at Ginger man. Pours a hazy orange golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is light overall - sour fruit, lemon and salt. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of gummy candy, light carbonation on the palate and salty funk. Pretty tame overall.

Barnoloid (277) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2014
The breadiness of the rye is kind of low in the mix here. Nice bit of funk and barnyard, with a fairly thin body. Slight salt taste. A very unexpected beer

Tap at The Oak. Murky copper-amber pour with a small foamy head that barely moves at all. Thick soapy lacing after each sip. Huge barnyard in the aroma mixed with funky, sour tropical and citrus fruit. Tastes like barnyard, leather, overripe citrus fruit, wet leaves, strawberry, light pineapple, and earth. Touch of rye spice in the finish. Unique and complex but itís a tad messy. Thicker body than most sours gives it a pulpy feel too which isnít great. I love the effort here though. Enjoyable but not great.

phaleslu (9706) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Draft at Keystone-Clifton. Left over from the Bellís tap takeover they mustíve had recently. Mustíve missed the announcement. Pours a hazy, somewhat dull orange with a small off-white head that doesnít last at all, just some bubbles around the edge. Lots of fruits lead the aroma, with pineapple, mango, melon, sweet citrus, funk, sweet malts - didnít get much rye in this. Same with the flavor, which also had pineapple, sweet and juicy citrus, mango, and melon, sweet malts, funk, bread, and something like a copper note late. Light-bodied, with fairly low carbonation and a funky, juicy, somewhat metallic mouthfeel. Iím not sure Iíd be able to identify this as a "rye ale with Brettanomyces," but itís a decent sour ale.

Hazy light brown pour with a nice sour aroma. Taste of sour apple and malt with slight rye. Pretty good.
