timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
4oz taster at DBS. Aroma and flavor of zesty, meyer lemon and light Brett funk. Hardly any vinegar presence here and had the slightest, yet lingering tart on the back of the tongue. Very good sour, but nothing to rush out to get. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Clear orange with creamy, fine-bubble, white head / Bretty, funky, dry nose of apricot, orchard fruit, straw, and horse blanket, etc. / Light to medium body, tart with lively carbonation, a hint thin but the bigger alcohol is well masked, dry with lightly bitter finish / Light but elegant flavors of apricot, green apple, soap, straw, and horse blanket / Not there with the greats, but very pleasant with some complexity.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Fresh apricot, minimal funkiness for a sour, plenty acetic, puckering and delicious. A pretty basic sour all things considered; a nice introductory sour to those unfamiliar with the style.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2013
On tap at the barrel house. Beautiful golden orange pour with a white head. Aroma is tart, light fruit, slightly sweet on the nose. Flavor is perfectly tart with some great fruit notes. The description says to age this, but it seemed really well balanced at this point. A wonderful blend of tart, sweet, and fruit.

drowland (8676) - Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2013
1/3/13. 750mL bottle from Grassroots Natural Market. 2011 Project. $22 per bottle. This better be good. Hazy golden orange pour with a big fluffy khaki head that cuts in half and laces plenty. Big tart aroma like chalky sweettarts with some wood, funk, and a touch of an almost medicinal aspect. Super sour kick in the flavor, again like sweettarts, with fruitiness, wood, and some vanilla. A touch of lingering apricot. Nice!

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Fresh bottle in 2012 (2011 Project). Unibroue tulip glass. Pours orange with fizzy and quickly receding head. Smell is sour vinegar with a hint of citrus and apricot (as expected). Major sour flavor from beginning to end. Very slight fruit flavor that seems mostly overpowered by the sour vinegar. Perhaps this mellows and highlights the fruit as it ages? Light bodied with high effervescent carbonation. Just was hoping for more fruit. Way overpriced at $20 a bottle for what it is, but a decent beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VsXsV (4438) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle, 2011 vintage. Hazy orange liquid with medium white head. Aroma of lemons, sweat, fruit, apples, earthy/mineraly funk and a bit vinegar. Taste is dry and medium bitter with notes of lemons and sweat. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Nice but a bit weird.

4.2
dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle poured into glass. So jazzed to finally see this beer hit our shelves! Super sour and tart. Slight apricot funk in the nose, but mostly citrus. Drinks exceptionally well.

3.4
McGrupp612 (144) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Gold pour. Small white head. Aroma brings lactic and acetic acid and faint apricot notes. Flavor follows the aroma. Lactic sourness followed by a little bit of apricot and lemon. White vinegar drowns out the fruit and lasts on the palate. Light to medium body with ample carbonation. Would be great without the vinegar notes.

3.6
reggiedunlop (3724) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours a hazy orange/honey color with a medium white head. Aroma has oaky and tart notes...some apricot but hidden a bit by the tartness. Flavor is very tart...lemony with some apricot and oak. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is tart, mildly fruity, and dry.
