Caterwaul (51) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Bright golden color, head recedes rather quickly, though for a sour ale of this ABV, I suppose it’s to be expected. Just gorgeous. Smell is exciting. Tart, fruity, Lemony, and a bit funky. Got Damn. Upfront with lemon and orange. Nectarine and Peach shove in mid-palate to completely take over. Still with the mean, sexy, well-balanced tartness and bitterness. This is a gorgeously complex beer. Definitely in my top five. Get it if you can, when you can.

It pours murky copper with a off white head. The aroma has notes of: yeast starter, lemon juice, and bread. The taste is medium sour that finishes lightly bitter. The palate is medium bodied with medium carbonation; the finish is also medium. Overall, a little bland.

Slightly medicinal aroma with notes of... Concorde grape? Hazy golden color and very bubbly like champagne. Flavor is definitely sour with a tingly mouth feelz. Overall great beer, but not my thing. Kudos to Jolly Pumpkin.

From tap. Pours hazy yellow with a full white head with nice lacing. Slight sour nose of lemons, cloves and spice. Flavors are also slightly sour, with peppery fruit and a zesty mouthfeel. Dry, clean finish. Interesting and very good.

svandyke (236) - USA - MAY 19, 2017
Bomber- pours a cloudy straw color. Nice earthy barn smell with some spicy citrus on the back. Nice white head. Spicy sour initially, but it resolves to a refreshing nip of hoppiness.

colui72 (1020) - HONG KONG - MAY 16, 2017
Pours pale golden/straw, minimal head and some sticky lacing. Aroma if floral, very delicate, malty, some lemon and peppery. It gets more flavourful to the palate, with spices, pepper, malts, honey, lemon, grass, wood and some yeasty funk. Low bitterness but not sweet either (yes!). Body is quite light, with a flat carbonation. Damn good ale, and I don’t fancy pale beers!
