Thanks to Marc for the bottle!

This was an unexpected surprise. I thought this was a basic strong ale, but in fact it was a tasty, well-balanced sour. Hazy golden-yellow pour, with a good firm white head that retained well and laced the glass nicely. There was some odd funk in the aroma upon opening the bottle, almost diapery, but after pouring, that faded, and more of an earthy, lemony aroma came out. In the taste, candied lemon peel, earthy barnyard funk, candi sugar, wet wood, notes of floral spice. Mild tartness, just enough to get the salivary glands working. Well-balanced mouthfeel, medium body. Very nice overall.

Assembly #5
Smell of lemon, yeast, orange peel. Seems to be a good sour beer.
First sips are disapointing. Flavorless, mineral, hint of lemon. Barely sour and low carbonation. Very fresh however. The worst assembly so far.

Sampled at VT Brewfest. Believe it was on tap but could just as likely be from the bottle.

A-My notes are thin and near gibberish... I believed it poured somewhere near orange.

S-Funky, tart, spicy. More barny, funkified yeast than sour. Just a little bit of wood. Generic fruity sweetness.

T-Spice from the yeast. Signature rye flavor. Funky yeast that has the easy to describe as 'barny' flavor. Little bits of wood. Mild sweetness.

M-Medium bodied with a quick finish. No alcohol. Softer carbonation.

O-Wouldn't mind another go at this beer. Probably missing much of the intricacies hiding here.
