ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - FEB 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 Draft at the brewpub. Murky, darker golden pour with a dirty white head. Vinagery, brett nose with some fruit and a strawlike maltiness. Extremely sour and acidic. Very fruity apricot-like flavors with a powerful lactic finish. I dont usually like overly lactic beers but this seems to fit somehow... Very dry.

Smells of granny smith apples, plums and raisin. Taste is a combo between a beligian strong ale and apple cider. Metallic aftertaste was not expected. Finish is bitter...like sour apple. Interesting, but one was enough.

Taste at pub. This is the beer for the buddy you bring along that doesnt like anything other then light beer. Its a start I guess. Just your basic blonde ale.

falco242 (395) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2016
Tap at the brewery...nice lacing in the glass but the aroma doesnt come off too much. Mostly tart and a bit of vinegar. But it tastes amazing, with a balanced tart body that finishes with a juicy fruit bite. Not overly sour by any means, and makes you want another sip.

On tap at the Brewpub. Golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of apricot, funk, light vinegar and some malt. Soft and kind of relaxed.

phaleslu (9922) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Draft at Toronado-San Francisco, served in a stemmed glass. Pours a clear light gold with a small white ring for a head. Notes of sawdust, lime, lemon, pluots (yeah!), grass, straw, tangerine, fresh herbs - acetic, tart, fresh, sharp, clean. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Woody with fresh tart fruit. Oh man, this is awesome. Just a notch below Beatification, which is one of the best sours ever invented. Amazing.

Tap at Russian River. Awesome beer. Slightly cloudy with great head and lace. Very lifted aromatics. Clean. Very sour but great balance. Great length.

IrishBoy (4174) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Draft at Russian River. Nose is fruity pluots (mostly plum rather than apricot ), woodiness, a slight funkiness, and a tart citrus. Murky orange tinged yellow with a medium heavy lacing yellow tinged head. Flavor is lightly tart and fruity with a slight wine note from the barrels. Ive waited since 2008 to taste this missing it by a few days several times.
