375ml bottle served lightly chilled and poured into HF stemmed glass. Thanks a ton Michael (black13) for this big want! Reviewed live with a full pour.
A- Pours a slightly hazy orange golden with some translucency and very minimal head, a flat top, and some sporadic carbonation. Fairly minimal lacing which slides back down into glass. Overall has a nice look for a sour golden.
S- Tarty with a little bit of sweetness. Aromas of lemon sweet tarts, light brett lending some slight barnyard funk, balanced malts, and some oak hiding in the background. Decent aroma strength with nice balance between the tartness and lemony sweetness.
T- Lemony sweet tarts up front, followed by a lactic tartness and some lightly funky brett, finishes with an acidic kick followed by more brett and very tart lemons with a hint of peel and oak mixed in that lingers for awhile. Well balanced, the acidic kick is a bit too much, but otherwise this beer tasted very good.
M- Medium bodied, spritzy with a decent amount of carbonation, finishes with a light acidic kick.
O- This was a very good soured golden ale that definitely had it's fair share of tartness/sourness. The beer was well balanced with lots of flavor and a nice level of funk mixed with acidity and tartness. So far Block 15 has really impressed me and I hope I can continue trying more of their beers. I definitely recommend seeking this one out.

on-tap, beermongers in Portland
Extremely tart - kind of makes one's face hurt. Tastes of raw oak, sharp stinging funk, lemon rind, dust, a touch of brett, apricot. Cool to be able to try this - definitely a winner from a brewery who mixes gems and clunkers like no other. ISO : Bottles.
