Draft at GABF. Sour/Wild #100 for me. Pours a hazy orange with a soap bubbled head that manages to keep a ring. Nose is quite sour, lots of lacto and then some brett funk, earth & pineapple? Cherry notes as well, no vinegar. On tasting, the tartness translates into a bigger brett character than anything else. Crisp and dry, very brett forward. Most of the malt profile is washed out. Pretty decent beer, for sure.
Growler. Copper pour, light head. Cherries, good sourness, some vinegary notes, roasted lemons, and a bit of malt mixed in for good measure. Good. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - FEB 10, 2013
From a growler shared at a tasting, amber with some haze and a small white head. Some tart cherries and sourness in the aroma. Some earthiness to go with a nice sour bite in the flavor. Pretty damn good. dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2013

sample at GABF on 10/1/11. murky orange pour with a small white head. nice sour nose with light oak. big round sour body with light fruit. tart finish. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2011 Draft @ brewery tap, Santa Fe. Warm hazy brandy color. Mainly flat. Aroma of Rodenbach yeast, wine barrels, and sweet balsamic. All this carries over well into the flavors. Adding nice sour cherry, sour grape to the profile, this is very tasty albeit a tad thin. Very welcome brew in the lineup. Rerate from later batch at abq brewery tap. Is tasting much livelier and more full-bodied. Carbo is more alive. The wood in the finish is clean and tasty. The sweet ish rodenbach flavor is fun and so is the moderate abv. They do great with this one 4, 7, 4, 8, 15 Terminus (3738) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 1, 2011
tap at the brewery-well, this beer eluded me the last time i was in Albuquerque, but i was very pleasantly suprised that it was back on tap! What you have here is very much a clone beer of rodenbach/la folie, which isnt a bad thing, but nothing really original. pours ruby hue with some slight cloudiness with a small fizzy white head. nose is sour beeries, tart with a hint of vinegar and wood. flavors are tart lite sour slight wood with a long sour finish. lots of wood comes out more as the beer warmed, almost cedar-like. not and overly complex sour but beter than some of the otehrs i have had from midwest breweries. probably the only sour made in NM though, so its cool to have tried it! I bought a growler and brought it home just to find out that it was leaking all the way home......:(
