Bottle at Tony/Jim BA Birthday Extravaganza 2013 (Western Springs, IL). Pours a nice hazy golden amber hue, darker and well hazed. Some loose whitish head dies to a mellow ring, laces ok. Darker with some nice golden glow on the edges. Aromas are potently tart, sour lemon, lactic acidity and peaches. Some white grape, fainy blueberry grows for some reason. Odd. But nice. Initial is quite sour, a touch of cider, rich lemony lactic life with lemon peaches and tartness. Lactic and a bit wellk carnonated. A bit fluffy, with some bready malts, richer peach, tart. Some blueberry skin, touches of straw, gentle tartness. More crab apple, blueberry. Quite odd. Nice sourness, weird blueberry vibe. Finish is tart, lactic and yogurty, fruity. Tasty stuff just odd.

My favorite of the new sours at Funk n Sour fest. Was easily the most sour of the three as well. Very tart, funky nose, not much apricot taste to be found as the sourness was very prominent in the taste. Will have to revisit out of the bottle, to see how it does.

Of the three new sours released at Jester King’s party, this one was the best in my opinion. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are both very nice. I get some tart apricot notes as well as a bit of oak and some funk. The fruit is extremely well done and blends great with the sour notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Taste is beautiful, huge tangy tart sour, fruity, really authentic nice peach flavor that melds well with the sour notes, A complex and very very nice beer. 4.4
I talked to a few other beer nerds and we all agreed that time had done wonders for this beer. I regret having just traded my last bottle.
