Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle share at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours a hazy light amber with a one finger white head. Aroma is sour fruits, funk, must and a hint of the rye malts. The taste is a sour punch up front with the backend being earth, tart fruits, malted rye, and an almost blue-cheese punch. The sour lingers on the finish. As it warms more of the fruit (Kumquat) comes through and the sourness tends to wane some. Light-medium body, good carb. Tingles on the palette.

ABUSEDGOAT (2709) - California, USA - APR 24, 2017
2016 bottle. Cloudy amber colored with a white head. Aroma is sour with vinegar, kumquat, acidic, light caramel. Medium bodied, moderate to high sourness, sweeter than some of their other offerings. Like the other sours from The Bruery I couldnt finish it as it makes my chest tighten. Cant explain it really, but its still a tasty sour otherwise.

From notes (6/4/15). Bottle share with tbub18 -- cheers, buddy! Aggressively sour, which is only accentuated by the high carbonation. The kumquats add a citrus and fruit element -- less than a fruit lambic, but still noticeable -- and brings everything up a level.

Bottle, Deep, softly hazed scarlet-orange with a fuzzy and fizzy head of French vanilla. Well-blended aroma -- a little funk and sweet, fruity citrus (kumquat), lavender, a gentle toastiness, a splash of balsamic. Beautiful. The flavors a little less complex, loaded with lemony acidity atop a backdrop of orange peel and orange blossom honey. The tartness is bold but not overpowering, and the snap of rye shows up in the front of the flavor. Good stuff.

djd07 (14046) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a dark orange with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong kumquat, stone fruit, funk, oak. Thin mouth, very sour, similar flavors to nose, really enjoyed this one.

MacBoost (1874) - Victor, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Turbid light Amber pour, minimal head. Aromas of some citrus, some oak, some funk. Taste is tart and semi dry. Flavors of citrus fruit, oak barrel, mossy rocks. Citrus twang on the edges of the lips, but not overwhelmingly tart. Nice lactic acidity to it, no vinegar. This is focused and dialed in. Pretty damn good.
