Notes/Commercial Description:
Sour beers are famous for long aging periods, wild microbes, and flavors that are more complex and intense than any other family of beer. Commonly referred to as Lambics, these beers were once only brewed in a specific region of Belgium and have recently made a migration to breweries of America. Imploring ancient techniques, Seven Day Sour is brewed with a first and second 'slims' process, and a malt bill built with over 30% raw wheat and 30% chit malt to dramatically drive up starches and proteins which our quirky wild microbes love to feed on. We sour this recipe with an advanced and progressive method utilizing a hot fermentation in the kettle with Lactobacillus, followed by a cool fermentation on brettanomyces; making this beer anything but simple. Seven Day Sour is a young and unblended gueuze showcasing a refreshing acidity and complex bretta notes. 5.0% ABV; rare.

Wax dipped 375ml poured into straight pint glass. Pillow white head which dissipates after a minute or so. Cloudy, pale yellow. Smell is wheat with a slight brett funk and lemon. Tastes is intensely sour, loads of lemom, with a dry wheat finish. Overpowering at first but it definitely grows on you. I can tell it's a sour worting but only by the nose and it's not offensive. Very nicely done. Great summer sour.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pour is pale straw yellow with a tight creamy white head. Nose is heavy brett, dusty and cob webby, hint of funk and lacto, a bit of hay like grain with an assertive lemon. Taste is also heavy brett, less funk with a fair bit of mineral and a touch of sulfer, lacto mid palate with a stronger grassy hay grain and huge lemon juice in back that gets a bit sweet. Carbonation is extremely strong, lightly dry finish and very delicate body.

i didn't want to like this, but I'm in love with it. some criticize it for cutting corners or deviating too far from tradition, but wight he beer tasting this good, i have no problems with it, and am actually real curious about the process. and oh, its sooo sour! crystal clear pale yellow with passive carbonation rising up into a half inch or so bone white head. its real clean looking, and has no haze at all until the bottom few drips are poured out into the glass. gorgeous appearance. a slight parmesan cheesy funk to the nose before the white vinegar lactic acidity kicks in and waters the mouth but basically destroys my ability to pick out subtle aromatic nuances. white grape maybe, very tart, very dry. the flavor is similar, more acidity than i know what to do with. more puckery than a lemon, but more flavorful too. i get the wheat, i get the brett, but this is totally dominated by the lacto. must have been a real warm fermentation to rock it out this quickly, id like to learn from the man who made this. shocking there is no oak on it, not that it exhibits any mellow wood character, but just these are usually done that way. way more sour than funk, but they are both there, and that cheesy thing drops out of the finish. splendid beer really, and finally a fairly priced one from trinity. all good things to say about this one, great carbonation and a light body, hot weather beer. i can forgive the bastardization of the term gueuze if it tastes this good.
