Pours out peachy yellow topped with a thin white head from the 750ml. bottle at Port Brewing/Lost Abbey Brewing Co. (San Marcos, CA): Nose is mostly vinegar and wet funk. The flavor opens with wet oaky notes and quickly turns more sour with a touch of a metallic side. Hints of wet earthy notes take the finish. Drinkability: Bracing on the palate and it doesn’t let up until about ten seconds after the finish. Pretty cool stuff. Pairing: Kobe beef with a side of french fries, and a light fruit tart for dessert. Rebuy: Yes. #310 on 28022010, DG. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow, with a nice white head. Nose is funky, wheat, sour as hell, etc. Flavor is more of the same. Acidic, balanced well, very drinkable. Dug it. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Big thanks to Ethan for popping this one at Pre-Sex - super generous, dude! I was surprised by all the relatively cool ratings for this one, as if people expect this to taste like it has five years of age on it already. I thought it was really excellent beer, with a strong lemony aroma indicating the kind of pert, youthful quality this one has. It’s still got plenty of dry wood, deep funk, and complexity to it, along with a surprisingly vigorous carbonation. Very good as is, and no doubt it could be killer in a few years. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2010
750 ml bottle. Pours to a bright copper body with a nice white head and great lacing. The aroma is sour. Similar to Cantillon’s classic gueuze that I had very recently. Gooseberries? The flavor is super sour. Acidic sour gooseberries. Tart fruit-like sourness with some leather and horseblankets. durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Thanks to emacgee for pulling this out. Aroma of leather, lemon and some hay/barnyard, but not too much. More lemon, oak,and mild funk on the palate. Great, but I wonder if a bit of age would make it even better?

A: Hazy, pale yellow in color without much head.
S: Smells as tart as I would have hoped. Lots of citrus, especially lemon, mild funk, and some yeast.
T: Definitely not overly sour, but still quite tart. Lots of lemon, apple, some other fruits are there too, perhaps grapes. Not all that much funk.
M: Very crisp, dry, great carbonation, and rather light on the tongue.
D: A delicious beer, and one of the first geuzes I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. I know that I could definitely do worse on "breaking in" to the style. fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 10, 2010

(Sour Monday - Triple Rock) Bottled. First off, cudos for the name!! Wonderfully sour. Not cloying. Pretty orange color. Flavors of sour apricot. Aquilo (651) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 8, 2010
I’m so happy that I got to try this! Sour Monday at Triple Rock. Nice sour aroma that permeates the sinuses. Yellow raisins and cranberries. Flavor is pleasantly sour without being vinegary. Little bit of a funky aroma in the finish. Very complex and very good. ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2010
