[ keg ][ 4oz ][ @Max’s Sour Fest ][ $? ][ mini tumbler ][ 02.15.15 ]
translucent red-amber, thin tan ring. Caramel and acetic acid marriage in nose, very balanced. Sweet caramel-Apple front palate, softly cherry acetic adding brightness, both in check and balanced. Oily across mid, too much foeder with light glue elements, balance bordering on high-end Oude bruin except for acid dominance and low fruit/sugar content.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(En fût à O’Brien’s): Une acidité fruitée qui fait penser à l’abricot, des sucres maltés grillés et une rondeur lactique qui sait trancher.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled on draft this beer poured a caramel-orange color with a large creamy orange-white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was dusty and chalky with citric acid, a touch of tropical fruit and a bit of medicine. The flavor was tart citrus, chalk, astringency, cracker and cactus. Medium lenght finish with growing astringency. Medium body. Meh.

Surprising sourness made it interesting and drinkable. Not really the style, nor giving BFM its run for the money.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Daily Growler Powell. Cloudy amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly tart fruit, caramel malt and mild grassy hops. The finish is mildly hoppy up front with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Really cloudy medium orange with thin white head. Sweet tart aroma, pert pear, but of raspberry and apple. Lighter carbonation, acidic thin mouthfeel, clean effervescent finish. Flavors are very funky, barnyard, tart Apple, butterscotch, bit of milk. Simple, pert but good and refreshing.
