On tap at Bell’s. Amazing flavor. Honestly one of the best beers I have had. Tremendous sour note with no overreaching sweetness, complex flavor.

(draft @ Bell’s Eccentric Cafe - Kalamazoo, MI) Deep copper pour with a very thin white head. Huge tart and sour funky aroma with some very mild fruit and malt notes. Mainly that tart and bitter. Flavor is a huge tart bomb in your mouth. Huge funky and sour notes with just the right amount of sweetness to take it away but it leaves that sour and tart feeling in the sides of your mouth. Phenomenal. Probably in the top 5 sours I’ve ever had. svandyke (255) - USA - MAY 20, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 On tap at Bells, it is a loverly color, wit a hearty yeasty nose. As a sour, it refreshes with a bit of bite. It is altogether without the normal oily feeling left after other sours. If they sold growlers of the stuff, it would be heaven. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 9, 2010
Tasted from 750mL bottle at Lush CBC event. Pours clear amber with thin white quickly dissipating head. Nose of dried papaya, brett funk, and peach skin. Flavors are sour with brett, plum, milk chocolate, and a bunch of peach. The carbonation is lively and stings the tongue with a less than medium body. Finish is almost tannic and drying with a plum flavor. Overall, this is an awesome wild ale. Drake (14033) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 28, 2012
750 mL bottle shared at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Bottle 88 of 370, batch K10596. Pours a clear amber color with a medium creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of huge lemon notes as well as other citrus, some earthy notes and caramel malts. The taste is earthy notes, plums, citrus, cranberry, cherry and a slight vegetal note. Tart throughout. High carbonation, medium bodied and extremely drinkable. I was excited to try this and it exceeded my expectations. Very, VERY well done Bells.

Appearances nice with large off white head lace and clear cherry wood color. Aroma is vinegar fruit yeast. Flavors like nose. Body’s good though a bit thin. V easy drinking. 77ships (10455) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2016
Thank you Koelschtrinker. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Pre-Borefts Ratebeer Tasting 2016. Dark amber, tanned head. Nose is sour pleasant puckering vinegar oak, sour acidic dark fruits with touch nail polish. Taste is sour but a bit more mellow than the smell, lightly fizzy, low oxidation (quite a bit of age on this one probably), huge oak, USA sour acidic affair at its prime, dark fruits, low balsamic vinegar in a good way. Potent big, lovely USA sour. Quite a beer. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2012
This one poured a semi hazy medium red color with a beige head. Aroma was of vinegar, berries, grain, and some lemon juice. Flavor was very complex. a mix of tartness, medium funk, light apple vinegar and lots of berry fruitiness in the swallow. Great stuff. fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2013
On draft @ Eccentric Café. Murky brown pour. Great sour aroma. Taste is intensely sour, tart, apple and berry. Very impressed. madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Look - Red tint to a brown body. Light tan head and lacing is very strong.
Smell - Sour. Sweet brown sugar.
Taste - Very sour but drinkable. Malty. Bubblegum, strawberry, and lemon.
Feel - Medium bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall - It’s a sour you have to try. Not the way I went, but a good cider to beer transition beverage.
