25 oz. champagne styled bottle. Received from Craftshack. Only way we can get new beers in my neck of the woods. Poured into a Russian River "Tion" goblet.
A- Orange/apricot in color, slightly cloudy. Pour yields a 1/2" head which completely vanishes in just a minute or two.
S- Acidic/tart/sourness right away, with a hint of oak woodiness behind that. Yeast, earthy funk and a slight wine like aroma in it as well. A tiny bit of spicy rye there too.
T- Puckering sourness, green apple skins, sour grape, lime and brett funk all swirling around the hyped up taste buds. A bit of oak on the palate as well. I get no malt body at all what with the intense sour fruits crushing everything in their path.
M- Tangy, with light-medium carbonation. Not a lot of body, but once again, the sourness dominates most aspects of this brew. After sampling about a half-dozen wild ales, this seems to be a characteristic of the style.
O-This is good for a change, though I couldn't make a steady diet of it. Like my malted grains too much. For the sours I've had this is an above average offering from the Bruery. Would try again during warm weather, and see if it drinks different then.

A natural orange juice color meets the eye with a tinge of peach. The head was foamy and tight.
The nose is tart, sour and a bit acidic with cherry and lemon juice like aromas.
Tempered sour fruit first meets the palate with citrus acidity. Oranges, lemons and a grapefruit juice flavor hold through as it finishes with oak, cream and cider.
The feel is not too tart, no pucker factor at all, with smooth thickness and drinkability.
The barrel must really even this sour out, as its not too tart, but the flavors were easily preserved.
