75cl bottle via Grand Cru. It pours a clean golden color with a minimal off white head. Aroma is tart lemony with notes of lemon juice, light funk, grass and vinegar and white wine. Taste is also acidic and dry with big lemon juice notes, lactic acid, light vinegar, tart white wine. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice

I was trying to drink local at the RePublic but it is hard to pass an opportunity to try such a great beer without having to drop $30+ for a 750 ml bottle. I can only hope that more situations like that arise in the future. If you like big bold West Coast sours this one will be right up your alley.

Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent coppery body glimmers with a faint head. Balanced and dry, the nose nibbles at the senses. The lemony core ties together the sourness of funky wine.

Flavor / Palate - Raspberries, lemon custard, and tart acidity scour the palate clean. The foundation, composed of vinegary cider, adds a nice depth that improves everything else. I doubt I would ever spring for a full bottle given my current budget but if friends wanted to split one I would not hesitate. This represents the full potential of the American wild ale movement.

stevoj (5069) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Draft at the Barrel House. 2015 vintage at 10.1% ABV. Pale, clear golden with big foamy head. Light bodied and light on the palate, but the grapes also lend a lot of flavor, think white grape juice on steroids. Aroma and flavor lean on the grapes, initial tartness dries out on the back end.

Bottle. 2015. Beer really wants to come out of bottle. Dangerous. Pours hazy golden, almost no head. Aroma: sourish, soap, flourish, apples, more like cider, sweetish, pale fruits, spicy. Taste: sourish and sweetish, some spicyness, fruits, some vine notes, some acidity, weak vinegar. Ok.

tarmok (1433) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 23, 2017
Golden liquid with minimal head. Aroma is sourish. Taste is sour, white wine. Medium body, long fin
