mcberko (16965) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
On tap at PIB 2016, pours a clear pale yellowish blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out lovely brett funk upfront, with light citrus zest and dry oakiness. Flavour is puckeringly tart, with tons of lychee and citrusy sourness. Extremely puckering, dry and sour. Not overly complex. A little underwhelming, but its solid.

Was a bit uncertain about a "honey wheat ale aged in cab barrels", but this turned out to be a nice, zippy little sour. Pours yellow with thin white head. Could use a bit more carbination, honestly. Nose is great: funk, lemon, and vinegar. Taste is similar, but rounded out with the flavor of honey (but but much sweetness) and a pleasant oaky-ness. Solid.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 7, 2014
On tap @ Drakes. Clear golden straw pour with a fizzy white head. Nice sour lemon and apple aroma. Sort of a musty funk, some lemon zest, and apple cider. A hint of oak and vanilla. The flavor has a good sourness of lemon and apple. Somewhat spicy and funky. A light malt and vanilla sweetness. Sort of grassy and musty quality. A little bit of honey as well. Nice.

slowrunner77 (11677) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 19, 2014
A fantastically oaky sour from Drakes. Orange-blonde ale, aromatic from a couple feet away. Funky and acidic. Fruity with pronounced oak in both aroma and flavor. Just great. Opens up quite nicely and very sessionable at 6%

On tap. Cloudy golden with a creamy white head. Bready red wine, sour cherry, citrus, and caramel aroma and taste with a crisp tart finish and a silky bright medium bodied palate. Very good.

A - Served a cloudy golden-orange color with a thin layer of frothy white head. The head fades fairly quickly leaving behind some light lace. S - Aroma is a mix of sourness, sweet light fruit, some green apple, some sweet malt and grain, and a bit of oak. T - Starts off with some sourness and tartness with some sweet malt and oak. Through the middle some more tartness comes through with some green apple, some more oak, and a bit of yeast. The finish is a mix of sour and tartness with some sweet malt and oak that linger. M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a nice tart finish. D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced. It is fairly light bodied but does not sacrifice in flavor at all.
