look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tasting glass.
A: Slighly hazy, medium golden color with no foam head. No lacing remains on the glass.
S: Bright lemon and musty funk are featured, with other qualities such as gruyere and green apples faint but detectable. Other fruit and spice are absent, preserving an authentic cleanliness.
T: Begins dry, with potent tartness, bright fermented grain, and sharp minerality. Yeast funk becomes pronounced into the middle, suggestive of digestive fluid when considered with the sourness. Flavors drop off abruptly into the finish, tasting stale and just a little sweaty.
M: Medium viscosity, syrupy on the palate, with low carbonation.
D/O: This wild ale features some authentic lambic qualities, mostly centered around the smell. The flavor profile starts out in agreeable fashion, but flails ineffectively by the midpoint. It seems a little young, and time to condition fully may alleviate the textural issues.

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.
