callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2012
2008. Copper-gold body, quickly receding white head, no lacing. Nose is apricot, boozy, light wheat, must and wood. A bit harsh given the age. Flavor is a bit more refined with smoother notes, but lacks a top tier profile. Medium bodied, mellow carbonation, prickly finish.

TheCrowsNest (90) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - DEC 8, 2012
2011. Hazy orange with a clean white head. Lots of citrus aromas, lemon; clean sour; light funk. Apricots hide in the finish, tartness dominates the palate with a biting sour character that sits at the back corners of your tongue. Light body with a mouth-watering finish and medium carbonation. Light but complex sour notes make this a great American sour. Worth seeking out to try, grab a bottle to age.

Bottle at the BA Buffalo bottle share. Pours golden amber with slight white head. Nose full of Brett and horse hair. Taste is puckering with an ample amount of apricot. Light slick creamy body.

Tap at Cascade, Portland - 07/11/12 @ 8.4% ABV. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head that soon clears to the edges. Nose is apricots, sugar, fruit, sour and tarte. Taste follows nose, apricot, burnt piss, tarte. Medium bodied with soft spritzy carbonation leading to a sour finish. Decent.

2011 ’Project’. Soaring nose of lemon zest, fruit, touch of diacetyl. Wood very muted. Good carbonation on cloudy light orange gold. Zesty and tart finish with subtle apricot. These guys do great stuff.

Bottle at home with my wife; 2011 Vintage. Pour is hazy orange with a fluffy white head that doesn’t seem to leave. Appearance looks like a glass of peach juice. Funky, woody, fruity aroma; tannin, peach skin, light urine, tangerines, and orange peel. Nice. Taste is really sour; yet bright and juicy with notes of orange juice, apricots, oak, basement, fruit pit, bread, and honey ending moderately tart. Creamy mouthfeel with high carbonation and sticky lacing. Very refreshing, yet toll-taking sour. Tastes like fresh sqeezed fruit juice with heavy acidity leading to a lingering sourness that sticks to the roof of your mouth. Tasty stuff.

poisoneddwarf (2639) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - NOV 13, 2012
750 ml corked and caged bottle. 2011 Project, 7.76% ABV. Pours cloudy orange with a medium off-white head that falls in about a minute into a skiff of foam. Aroma is full of apricot, dusty brett, Band-Aid. Taste is mouth-puckering sour, acidic, apricoty; finishes dry. Carbonation is pretty high, full-bodied. Excellent.

4.3
bigwesticle (37) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 13, 2012
2011 project. Super sour nose with more funk than expected, slightest hint of fruit. Taste follows the nose almost identically. Not as fruit forward as I expected it to be, definitely sour. Reminds me of a quality gueuze.

4.1
johnnnniee (4411) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 28, 2012
2009 bottling Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge bubbly white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smells of tart pitted fruit with a solid shot of funk. The nose is full of citrus and lactic aroma’s. The flavor is quite tart and acidic. A solid shot of lemons and sweet tarts with some light tart fruit, a hint of alcohol and a sneaky bit of oak and vanilla. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a tart lactic bubbly mouthfeel. This is a really nice sour ale, I really enjoyed this on the night before hurricane Sandy.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Super sour and tart one here. Some apricot but mastly a tart and sour golden ale. Very nice.
