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!

Cloudy yellow, white head. Sour up front, unripe stone fruit, yogurt, lemon/lime, hints of a yeasty quality. Very tasty.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2014 Thanks to Ron for buying us a bottle during foofaa’s going away party.

A - Pours hazy golden yellow with a small film of white head, quickly dissipating down to nothing at all, leaving no lace at all on the glass.

S - Smells of lemon acidity, dash of must and barnyard funk, Greek yogurt, oak, dry white wine and some doughy pale malt. It could use a bit more funk but I think that may come with more time in the bottle.

T - Starts off with a lemony acidic twang quickly being joined by the light funk and must, dry oak, wine grapes, damp earth, yogurt and some chewy malt. Finish is pretty dry, lingering long after the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate to low carbonation. Tart feel with plenty of dry backing. Not as sour as the other grape versions, which is more than fine with me.

O - I really like this beer. It is quite easy to consume, packs lots of flavor and it doesn’t destroy the palate like the grape versions. I am really looking forward to seeing how this one ages, if it can develop some more musty funk it could be excellent.

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours a clear yellow with no head. The aroma is wine grape, cheese, herbs, buttery white wine. Thin mouthfeel, wine grape forward, light sourness, very nice.

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!

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.

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.
