Backlog from sour fest. Served on cask. Pours murky brown with no head. Nose is tart and funky. Taste is sweet and tart and messed up, something seems wrong. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Sourfest 2010. I get the feeling I would like this more if it weren’t surrounded by some of the best sours in the world. Hazy dark orange pour. Nose is fruity tart and light sour. Taste is same. Oak, bit of funkiness, bit of wineness. Just not outstanding anywhere, but by no means offensive. JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Sample at stone sour fest 2010. Orangish brown pour. Fruit, apple, grape, light barnyard, sourness, and bready malt. Decent sour. nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUL 26, 2010
On cask at Stone Sour Fest. Golden orange color with next to no head. Medium bodied beer Moderate tartness with some sweet grape and acidity. Funky earthy quality and good complexity of flavors to challenge your taste buds and your brain. Pretty enjoyable beer overall I would venture to say and was glad to try it.

Tasted on tap at the 4th Annual Stone Sour Fest on 7/18/2010. This sour ale pours a medium brown color from the cask. Small to no head. The aroma is malty, fruity, sweet and tart. A medium bodied sour. The malts are fruity and sweet, tart and funky. A touch of wood, and some grape flavors. Nice balance. Funky and musty. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is tart. KimJohansen (10510) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2010
Hazy amber with no head. Sourish aroma with pears, apples, toasted malt and barnyard. Sour flavour with toasted malt, brewing mash, lacto and barnyard. Finished sour and dry. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
On Cask at Stone’s Sourfest. I love the Bruery, and I love Cuvee Jeune, and I loved last year’s White Zin. This didn’t work out as well. Pours with a hazed yellow body and no head. Aroma is faint fruit, grapes, wine and lightly sour. Taste is acidic, waxy, tart with some wine. Essentially flat mouthfeel which also dulls the sourness.

Cask @ Stone sour fest. I with this was on tap instead of cask, really didn’t do this beer justice. Pours a hazy gold color with a zero head and very light carbonation. Some muted sour citrus and faint vinous notes. tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Nose was a little weak, light brown sugar and not much else, taste was good, subdued sourness, good bite, served on cask, so it lacked the carbonation to carry the flavors.
