Thanks to ehammond1 for this one!

Pours a murky light golden yellow with a really tiny beige head that quickly settles to an oily film on top of the beer. No lacing on this one. Smell is pretty sour and funky with some grain and woody aromas. A mouth watering vinegar note comes out more as the beer warms. Taste is pretty intense with sour, tart, and funky flavors including grain, wood, and vinegar flavors. There is a pretty intense mouth puckering sourness with each sip. Unfortunately, this beer has a low level of carbonation with a somewhat flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good sour beer but the carbonation issue is a bit disappointing in my opinion.

Pours a slightly hazed golden color. Jesus is this beer sour. Intensely lactic and some acetic qualities to it as well. A bit of grass along with straw and lemon zest. Not much in the way of fruit, pretty much just sour. The flavor is nice, but it is a bit hard to drink much of. Heavy on the lemon, very heavy, in fact. Like the nose, lots of lactic sourness and a bit of acetic/white vinegar character. Just a hint of sweetness along with a touch of oak.

Bottle: Poured a slightly dirty pale yellow color ale with a small bubbly head with minimal retention. Aroma of sour and vinegar notes with light funky ester. Taste is rather sour with quiet a bit of acidic notes and some vinegar notes can also be detected. Light funky notes are more or less interesting. Body is about average with low carbonation. I thought this one was lacking complexity and came out more as a one-dimensional acidic and sour beer with limited funky notes.

Bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.

Pours a light yellow-grain color with a thin white head and some spotty lacing on the way down. Thin collar throughout. The nose starts out troubling. There's some lemon and plenty of acetic acid; far more of the latter than I would like. The flavor has all sorts of acetic acid with some lemon pucker. Can't say I'm a fan. In fact, it's hard to get through much. Light body and loads and loads of sourness. I hope this was a bad bottle, as the acetic character here was way, way too much to handle.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

I'm not entirely sure why, but I have a song from the movie "Domino" in my head... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear auburn-brass topped by a half-finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sour-ass lemon zest backed by a strong contingent of straight-up funk. The taste brings in more of the same, the acidity buoyed by what seems like a slight addition of vinegar in the back. Damn, this be some funky, sour madness right here! The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, stick finish. Overall, a very nice, heavily pucker-inducing sour. I think I was expecting a bit more in the way of Brett-y funk, but this was pretty enjoyable regardless.

Bottle shared by spycow I think? Served in a 3 Floyds tasting snifter.

A - Quick-dissolving white foam dissipates to nothing. Lightly hazed golden straw body.

S - I've had this beer before, but this bottle was better than I remembered. There's still insane acetobacter and nostril-singing tartness but the nail polish has subsided a fair bit.

T - Taste has a bit more depth, with lemon and fierce vinegar flavors supplemented by some stone fruits. There's still a touch of glue and nail polish present, but there's actual flavor this time.

M - Super acidity, dry, and puckering, with very low carbonation. Body is medium-light and seems sufficient for 6%.

D - This has definitely improved, but it's still far to sour and acidic to drink in any appreciable quantity. A bit of carbonation spritz would go a long way here.

Poured from a bottle into a Bruery tulip. Beer is yellow, hazy, almost still, low carbonation, almost no head, no lacing.

Aroma is sharp, sweet, cheese and acetone and acetic acid.

Beer is thin and bright, dry and solventy on the finish. Lemon and sweet up front, while I think there is some acetobacter character in this beer it hasn't taken over, drinkable but really pushing it on the sour scale.

Thanks to SaucerSam for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of lemon and funk notes, as well as some light biscuit malt. The flavor is similar and is very sour. I get some strong lemon and orange citrus notes, but there is also a good bit of funk and some vinegar. Very acetic overall. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

750 mL bottle,

A: Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a fizzy white head. Goes away quick, no lace.

S: Nice notes of apricot and peach, stone fruit, hit of tangerine at the end.

T: Big amount of acetic acid upfront, a similar flavour to what I've found in a lot of The Bruery sours. Lemon, peach, assorted fruit, though this is not a fruit-forward sour by any means. Heavy influence from the acid.

M: Medium-bodied, medium high acidity, they say this is The Bruery's sourest beer and I believe it, but its certainly not to the point of some Cantillon or Hanssens lambics.

O: A solid sour beer for sure, actually quite good. I don't think it's amazing, but a fan of strong sour beer should enjoy this.

I had really high hopes for this, as ive heard many people with respectable palates assert that this is the sourest beer of them all. the granddaddy. well, first of all, it isn't. second of all, its not very good and was probably discontinued for a reason. it pours a pale hazy yellow color, watery looking, with only a small layer of white fizz. the aroma burns my nose from the acid, and smells like little else but acid and a touch of lemon. the flavor is akin to salt and vinegar potato chips, with all the sour being concentrated on the tip of the tongue, not that whole mouth sour like some of the better examples of the style. there is some mild fruit, and a whole lot of malt vinegar, this beer is a real miss for me. its almost caustic in the mouth, burning my tongue and drying my teeth. there is very little redeeming about it really, aside from being a novelty. its not even that sour, its just a weird, sort of misdirected sour, and it just doesn't work, not even in small doses. good carbonation and a really light body, but this is not drinkable by any standard. overall a letdown for me for a variety of reasons, but chief among them is that I expect everything from the bruery to be amazingly good, and this is so pedestrian. not sure if there is much of this around anymore, but if you find it, skip it.

Got a few bottles of this being in the RS this year. 750ml bottle poured into my Bruery tulip because I can.

a - Pours a murky bright orange-yellow color with a few white bubbles of head and low to moderate carbonation. I poured this one very aggressively as I heard about the carbonation issues, but still couldn't get much head at all.

s - Smells of vinegar, tart apples, sour apple cider, light oak, some funk, earthy notes, light citrus, and some fruity malts. Much better than I was expecting; I actually like the nose quite a bit. A tiny bit of funk but a ton of sour fruits, especially apple, which works really well.

t - Tastes of vinegar, very acedic, extremely tart apples and fruity malts, very soured apple cider, light oak, sour lemons, and lightly of what I imagine nail polish remover tastes like. Insanely sour taste… a bit too sour. A major step down from the nose.

m - Light, think body and low carbonation. The beer is nearly flat which is disappointing, and again a ton of vinegar/acedic notes.

o - Overall I must say this beer is better than I was expecting based on some of the reviews and based on what I heard from friends, but that still doesn't make it a good beer. I actually liked the nose of this one a lot, as it has a ton of sour fruits and some light funk to it. Unfortunately the taste is just too much...super sour and vinegary, past the point of being enjoyable; felt like it was like they just tried to make it taste as sour as they could. I liked the color of the beer too, but the lack fo carbonation hurts it quite a bit too in the mouthfeel. A sour with a really nice nose and an average taste, as the sourness just makes it too much to handle. A little less in the taste and this one could have been a winner. Tough to get through a glass of this one and I have half a bomber left. Would recommend sharing a bottle.

750ml brown glass bottle with standard Bruery-branded pressure cap served into a New Belgium stem-goblet in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. 6.00% ABV confirmed. "Sour blonde ale aged in oak barrels." Expectations are high; The Bruery tends to produce pretty good sours and I've heard this one is too sour for most - which is exactly what I'm looking for.

Served straight from the fridge and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a rather thin milky white head of okay thickness and average retention (~2 minutes). Body colour is a clear pale copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Little lacing if any as the head recedes. Not particularly vibrant. About what you'd expect for a blonde ale, but it does leave something to be desired.

Sm: White wine, pear, oak, heavy lacto yeast, cidre, fresh pressed apple juice, and pale malts. The aroma is fresh and delightful; the juicy apple and pear fruit notes are a highlight. Very evocative. One of the finer aromas I've encountered in a while; certainly special. A moderate strength aroma. I don't detect any alcohol.

T: Too sour? Nah. Too acidic? Perhaps. Delightful juicy apple and pear notes. Watermelon. White vinegar. A heavy dose of lacto beats you over the head on the climax and lingers powerfully through the third act and finish, even bleeding into the aftertaste. Cidery - in the fine French cidre sense, not in the strongbow sense. Juicy and clean. An oak tone runs throughout, lending a guiding refined character. Sourness is substantial but not intolerable; it's puckerworthy but I get most of the sourness on the back of my tongue, not up front. It's got nice body but comes off a bit simple for a sour. I do think it's well balanced, but there isn't a whole lot going on here. A bit of spice hits in the third act - that's unexpected and well-executed. A nice clove twang. Quite the lacto bomb.

Mf: Nicely dry - again, like a cidre. Yet still juicy, especially on the open. Sharp and biting; it's an assertive aggressive texture. Acidic as all hell. I wouldn't dare call it refreshing, but it's pleasant. Carbonation is perfect. Complements the flavour profile well.

Dr: You couldn't quaff it, but most sour lovers will have no trouble finishing the bottle. I know I won't, but it'll take a while. Drinkability isn't particularly high. No alcohol comes through. I'd definitely have it again. A solid sour from The Bruery, but I don't understand the complaints about it being too sour. Have the complainers had Cascade Kriek? I do think it's overpriced, but it's certainly worth trying once. I'm glad I gave this one a go.

Low B

Would pair very well with a sharp cheese.

Cheers and a big thanks to Brett for sending this to me. Poured into a matching Bruery snifter, the brew appears a clear light golden yellow color. A vigorous pour down the middle of the glass produces a half finger of white bubbles that quickly fade. There is no lacing effect and a violent swirl hardly revives some bubbles out of solution.

The smell of this brew includes acetone, apple cider vinegar, some lemony essence, fruit, alcohol and funk. The warmer it gets, the more a bit of earth comes out but the major character to this brew's aroma is a mixture of nail polish remover coupled with apple cider vinegar. When looking past the scent of the vinegar, a bit of a fruity character with more focus on apple skins comes forward but it is faint.

The taste is wild. Very acidic and funky. Unfortunately, this is the type of sour that I don't really dig. It is heavy on the apple cider vinegar and nail polish remover. After a couple of sips, I was running for some food to try and help me get through the glass. An hour later, my glass is still half full. The flavor is very acidic but lacks any depth to it. A straight pour of apple cider and nail polish remover with the faintest hint of barrel presence across the back is what this brew is in a nutshell.

Unfortunately, in a sea of bruery creations I love. This one is a flop. If they were going for a light/shallow extremely sour brew that completely lacks complexity, they nailed it. I however could hardly finish my glass and am happy to have someone to share the rest of the bottle with. While I am happy I have another one of these to revisit down the road, I am not that eager to see what happens. Currently is is thin and fizzy with the carbonation. Luckily the 6% alcohol is fairly well hidden behind the acidity. If you are in the mood for minor touch of fruit and straight sour pain, seek this one out.

Graciously opened during Philly beer week at Capone's.

The beer pours a waxy, honen gold color with minimal head retention and lacing. As I had been warned, the nose is just outrageous, showcasing considerable sour funk, mustard, lime and horsesweat. Talk about Brett overload! On the palate, the beer is bettter, as I get lime, honey, grape and cherry flavors, that marry well with the sour funk. The sour is completely over the top, which is pretty much what I expected. Mouthfeel is long and lingering, with sour, sour finish. An interesting, unusual beer, but obviously, the sour funk is just a bit much in this one.

Pours out very yellow, nice big 1" of white head on it, worries about lack of carbonation are dispelled. Aroma of oak, massive lemony sourness, and definitely funky, but not the wet dog funky. Enjoyable.

Taste, puckering. Plenty of lemon acidity and vigor (not vinegar). The oak is there in sizeable form. The oak makes this dry, stone ground mustard like acidity interplay or something, but as a guy who loves mustard, bring it on! Doesn't really bring any fruit other than lemon into the flavor equation. Relatively light body, into which a souring steroid mechanism exists. Gobs of acetic acid, which I think works pretty well. This beer is going to be challenging to a lot of people. I like it, and it keeps getting better.

I've had 3 bottles of this so far. Melding the experience from both into one review, subsequent bottles will yield an edited review/score. The first bottle was on the low end carbonation wise, the next two really picked up

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt. I heard this beer was pretty bad, but I am going into this with neutrality.

The beer is hazy yellow with a small, white head. The aroma is intensely sour, with an ample presence of wild bacteria. Oh yeah. My sadistic palate gets excited for beers like this. The flavor is extremely tart and sour, with a bit of nail polish and vinegar. Not nearly as offensive as it may sound. This is a palate attacking brew though. Only so much one man can take. Lip smacking, tart, acetic, gueuze-like. A challenging beer, and certainly best in small doses, or over a prolonged period. Happy to have tried it.

Snifter

A: The color of watered down apple juice with a fleeting bubbly white head.

S: Smells like apple cider vinegar with a light cheesiness and notes of earth. There's a little stone fruit in there with some lemon as well. There's just a little oak. This smells pretty nice.

T: The flavor has a lot of white and apple cider vinegar with a strong acetic acidity. Fruit reminds me of apricot and lemon. There's a light cheesiness and a little oak. The finish is intensely acetic with lighter citric notes and lingering fruit. Taste-wise this is pretty good, but the acetic acidity is detrimental.

M: I've been really disappointed with the carbonation levels on the Bruery's sours. How hard is it to condition a 6% sour? It shouldn't be at all difficult, but their sours are consistently low in carbonation and the beers suffer for it. This beer is all but flat, heavy, and lifeless, when it should be effervescent and lifting off the palate. I can't help but think the low carbonation is intentional, and if that's the case I really don't understand the reasoning behind it.

Overall: Far too acetic to be enjoyable. 4 ounces is more than enough. Props to The Bruery for recognizing the beer's faults and selling it at a lower price than their other sour beers. We're going to use the remaining 15 ounces to make salad dressing later this week.

Served from bottle into a Bruery tulip. Poured a hazy golden yellow orange with a minimal pure white head. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, vinegar, sour, tart, lemon rine, and subtle earthy funk. The flavor was of sweet malt, vinegar, tart, lemon, lemon rine, sour, and fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. Based on the name of this one I was really expecting a huge funk character to happen here. I was a little let down by this fact, but I was very happy with what I found in both the aroma and flavor. I do have a feeling I will be needing to go to the dentist have my teeth replaced after this bottle though. Definitely a must try for any sour/tart fan out there.

Appearance: Clear pale blond topped by a thin, bubbly head that disappears fast.

Smell: A ton of acetone and acetic acid, stomach bile, cheap chardonnay and apple cider vinegar. Smells pretty awful.

Palate: Harsh, burning acidity. Largely acetic, though there are lactic notes here as well. Acetone, buttery chardonnay, white vinegar. Curiously sweet despite the savage acidity. Carbonation is medium-low, par for the course for Bruery sours. This wasn't enjoyable at all.

750 mL courtesy of Overlord, much appreciated. Pours a slightly hazed gold color with a small white head. No lacing and poor retention...not too uncommon on a sour though.

I can smell this bitch from a mile away...sour as funk. Wow; clean and tart, mouthwateringly so. I haven’t smelled anything like this since I had a Captain Lawrence Barrel Select at least a year ago.

It profiles the tartness perfectly; nothing else gets in the way. The sourness is just so impressively clean. Like SweeTarts dissolved in pickle juice. One-dimensional for sure, but in a very delicious way. I love it...super light malts, salty sourness and puckering tartness. Yummy yummy yummy.

Thank you, Devin.

Fucking putrid shit, more nail polish remover than I was expecting, less white wine vinegar than I was expecting, bracing, harsh acidity with no redeemable qualities, I have no idea what they were thinking. Apple cider vinegar. This would make a decent salad dressing if not for the acetone.The only think that makes this beer not a 1.0 is the existence of Trinity's Old Growth. Fucking awful, avoid this.

Pours a slightly hazy deep golden color with a smattering of bubbles that attempt to form a bone white head but fail miserably. The smell is tart and funky as promised. Hints of lemons light grape and lots of cherries mixed with a bit of oaky vanilla and bits of wet horse. The flavor up front is kind of mild with some vanilla and cherries starting off the ride. This quickly fades to a salty earthy funkiness. Then we start to ease into the acid and that builds for a good long time until the lactic and citric are burning holes in my stomach. Long lingering salty lemony cherry tartness leaves my mouth salivating long after every sip. This is a pretty decent beer, but it definitely could use a few more bubbles.

Bottle to stemmed tulip
750 ml

Thanks to GuruDel for sharing.

App- A little bit lighter than Filmishmish and had a bit more of a brighter orange color with some medium orange and yellows spread throughout. A small 1/8" head and then falls to nothing but liquid.

Smell- Its just purely sour on the nose. Has a ton of vinegar and oak behind it. I see what they did with Filmishmish and wanted to create the opposite profile with this one.

Taste- Very similar to the nose but more citrus and sour comes out over time. This is was pure sour with tons of acid notes and vinegar punch. It really did get more sour as the beer warmed. It was a fun beer to drink and see where sour/oak/malts can combine.

Mouth- A light-medium body with a medium high carbonation. A nice residual sour with a small amount of funk and fruit/oak

Drink- Holy hell batman. I see what Tyler/Patrick and the gang were going for. They want to stake a claim they can make sours more sour. (Our amps go to 11 type of thing) I would love to age this to see what happens. Very sour and you will need to brush teeth and have some tums.
