look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

On tap in Brookhaven GA.

Flavor: This is very tart but with but with virtually no funk. The aroma, while sour, only hints at the level of tartness in the flavor.

Light body seems a tad undercarbonated.

O: very tart; more like a Gose; lacks the complexity and subtlety of the best Berliner Weissbierr's.

If I rated this based on price, I would be very harsh, but I don't do that. Jeez, it must cost a fortune to drive this up an interstate what with the prices of fuel and all.

I've had a few other brews from these guys, and this one is the most distinctive. I wonder what possessed them to do this style.

It looks correct except it is a bit flat. The aroma is great - it reveals that yeasty, wheaty sourness that is to follow.

The taste is a wonderful experience. A different take on the style, emphasizing the sourness, but not at all going over the top. The mouthfeel does not back up the flat appearance - it has the right amount of bubble. It leaves a refreshing bite. Surprisingly, it works with food.

I have a problem with the price. $4 for a 12 oz single. Was I overcharged? It feels that way.

Big bubbles. Would've liked much more flavor, this was far too light and subdued for what I wanted/expected. Everything was there - it just needs more of that everything.

This would be a decent summer sour beer if you don't want anything too potent, but at $4 for a 12 oz bottle isn't worth it.

3.71/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours an effervescent honey color with a sliver of beige head. Nice viscosity, negligible head retention & lacing

S: Faint sourness, pears & wet hay

T: Pears with some twang &a bit of Golden Delicious apple up front. Dryness & tartness as this warms, some grassiness. Finishes with pears, white grapes & tartness & dryness

MF: Light bodied, lively carbonation

So easy to drink, more sourness would me & the style happier. I like this better than most of their stuff

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a snifter

A: Opaque golden with a white half finger head that turns to foam and a bubble ring. Thick lacing.

S: Funky, Brett, hay, barnyard, lemons, pears, sour apples.

T: Lightly sour, smooth, tart. Apples and lemons dominate with a saison funkiness.

M: Medium with heavy carbonation.

O: A great summer brew. Would be great on tap. Light, smooth. Should have a wide appeal.
