3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit, wood and sour yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sour fruit and wood finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.
RBSG16 Grand Tasting. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Soft bright funk on the nose, light toast and wood. Medium bodied, soft acidity, acetic to a degree, but mostly just tangy. Long acetic that trends toward acetone, but loads of long citric acid. Lingering wood and acid.

Sampled at RBSG 2016 in Pittsburgh, PA at a hotel gathering after the grand tasting. In the tasting glass a cloudy copper orange head with white foam. Nose of funk and fruit, with solemn tartness. Medium body. Flavor runs to tart tropical fruit, and interesting combination and the fines is dry and tart. Darn nice stuff, DuffMan (10451) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016

Bottle shared. Glad I’m finally getting to try this! Pours a hazy copper with a white head of foam. The aroma has funky wheat like notes, some grass, pineapple, guava. The taste is a fairly dry sourness, but about mid taste there is an awesome tropical fruit sweetness that develops. Medium body and medium to high carbonation.Great stuff. decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2014
