Bottle @ La Palma Sour Fest 2015. Has a slight haze to the light golden colored beer. Pretty short lived foam. This is both sweet and quite sour. Very peachy and big on sour grapes, lemons, and green apple skins. Has a slight butterscotch note to it, which I don’t really care for. Maybe a touch of solvent bitterness, too. Meh.

Hazy straw colored body, thin white head, and minimal lacing. Lemon juice, white wine grapes, some light acetic notes but not too distracting. Medium to light bodied, gentle carbonation, assertive pucking tartness, light sweetness.

Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Pours dark thick lemony yellow with almost no head, a very small and thin bubbly ring. Aroma brings huge sweet green apples, dead on green apple skin. The flavor brings huge lemony tart notes and white wine barrel is shining with the white grape sour notes. This has developed so well!

Bottle from the source courtesy of Terry, thanks! Shared with nate2g. Hazy bright golden yellow color, small white head. Aroma of slightly dusty stone fruit, light tannins. Bigger tannins in the flavor, with some oily and funky lemon. Complex and understated. Very tasty.

Smells faint and somewhat weird. Taste is a pretty standard sour with nothing special about it.

Bottle... Pours hazy and straw-colored with no head. Aroma-wise, I’m picking up nothing other than some woodiness, cracker malt and a rumor of citric acid. The flavor is sour, citric and super bright. There’s a nice, hearty, woody component here as well. Crisp, fruity, sour finish that dries out a touch. The aroma is too restrained, otherwise Pizza Boy knocks it out of the park with this one. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Cloudy yellow, white head. Sour up front, unripe stone fruit, yogurt, lemon/lime, hints of a yeasty quality. Very tasty.

ineedbeer (2234) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Pure from a bottle. Aroma is rather acidic with hints of citrus. A slight poopy, sulfur note. Light herbal note. Hints of fruit. Pours a cloudy, rather pale with a small, thick, white head that recedes to the edges and lingers. Light lacing and small legs. Flavor is fairly acidic with some nice lemon and citrus notes. Some light oak tannins. Hints of tropical fruit. Light herbal notes. Similar to a Berliner Weiss. Low bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty nice, though simple sour beer. Aroma is a touch funky, but the flavor seemed fairly clean.

Milky yellow pour with a white head. Sour lemon zest highlights. Mild malty backbone. A bit thin in the body. Good mouthfeel.

Bottle - Pours golden, cloudy yellow. Smells of apple, slight honey, and oak. Slightly tart, lemon, wheaty taste
