Poured into a tulip.
3.5 A: Well hazed dark yellow color. About one finger of frothy white head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.
4.5 S: Like just about all other Bruery sours, the nose on this is full of acid. Lots of acetic and lactic acid. Plenty of funk to go along with the sour though. Musty basement, barn full of hay, dry, dusty wood, and maybe a bit of horse blanket. Lots of lemony fruitiness. At first I thought it was a bit too acetic, but the funk comes through well as this warms up and it turns out to be quite balanced.
3.5 T: Taste is good, but it isn't as impressive as the nose. Acetic acid forward, with more sourness under that, and another layer of acetic acid. Mild-moderate tangy lactic acid. The funk doesn't come through as well as in the nose. It might be there, but if it is, it's hidden under the sourness. Moderate amount of musty funk, but not a lot of complexity. Lemony fruitiness, oak, and a mild tannic astringency. Not bad, but you have to be an acid fan for this one.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation, but low on spritziness. Smooth enough for how acetic it is.
3.0 D: This is another acetic Bruery sour. That's what it is. I predicted that before I opened it and, of course, I was right. Good enough.

Bottle etched 8/27/13 - 2013 edition
Hazy, golden pour with head reducing to slight lacing. Aroma is primarily sour lemon with some funk and sweet malt. Taste is bright sour fruits (primarily lemon and apple), oak, grass and a bit of subdued funk. Quite tart and fairly acetic in a similar manner to Hannsenns oude gueuze. Finishes with a lemony zing which is very gueuze-like but there is a malty sweetness that is un-gueuze-like. Active, creamy effervescent carbonation lends a nice mouthfeel to this light-bodied beer. Overall this is a very nicely done american sour ale that has held up well with almost a year since bottling. Refreshing, tasty and very sour! Recommended.
