Zymurgeist2 (2386) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
On draught at Gourmet Haus. Light smoke and lemon marry on the aroma. Very hazy honey-gold with white head that falters but leaves massive lacing. Tart sourness follows thru with more pronounced smoke. Finishes very dry.

Aurelius (5590) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2015
An odd but enjoyable aroma. Clear, pale. Moderately acidic and sour, ginger notes, maybe slightly smoky, some plasticky tones. Lightish body. Ok. Thanks to LuckyDog.

Smells sort of like pee. Wood chips. Sour like pulled pork. Looks fine. Light yellow color. Taste is like the smell. Palate is smooth. Lingering hops. Overall a solid beer. Really well balanced between lighter sour.

Mortlach (2527) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
On tap @ Buskers Pub. Dorata lievemente torbida, schiuma leggera, non particolarmente persistente. Al naso sentori vinosi con forti note torbate, tutto sommato (sorprendentemente) ben equilibrate. In bocca acido preponderante, sul finale emerge un po’ il torbato, un po’ sottotono rispetto a quanto il naso lasciava presupporre. Corpo medio-leggero. Mix ardito, ma ben riuscito.

had at the avenue during zwanze ’14 .. . light yella .. . aol? .. mild sour qualities, sandy and mild .. . was expecting so much more from this .. . . so nobody I know sees me buying six rotisserie chickens.

Very decent. Pours white wine coloured without much head or lacing. Finishes a little tart. Pretty good stuff. Tap at Snallygaster.

GenDV138 (7764) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2014 6 oz draft pour at Snallygaster 2014 shared by me. Clear yellow with off-white head. Aromas of citrus, light tropical fruit, tart notes. Tastes of lemon, lime, spices, herbs, citrus, tart notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - APR 12, 2014
On draught at Apex. Fuzzy peach color, very hazy. Aroma is smoke, vinegar, basement, and lemon. Taste is smoke, sour plum, latex, vinegar, and lemon. Unlike any sour I’ve had before. Both off-putting and really good.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of smoke and some slight acidity. Flavor is tart upfront with lots of malt and a nice smokey finish. The smoke character is what makes this one for me. Solid brew.

gschrade (1102) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours dark gold with a white head. Taste tart, lemon, funky. I thought this was ok. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
On tap at the Moon. Pours a frothy white head atop a clouded orange. Nose is tart and smoked. Great tart berry front, balanced smoke and lemon base. Very interesting, nice texture. Bubbly carbonation, fruity with passion fruit. This is great stuff.
