Opened at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013. Thanks to myself for finally opening this.

Pours a hazy orange without much head.

This is hard to review for me because it's actually pretty one dimensional. Very sour/acidic, bright dry apple/grape, delicious but not super complex. Very dry and acidic going down.

Excellent for what it is but not as good as a top Belgian gueuze and not as good as Izzy or some of the other best CA sours.

8.8/10

Shared with JLindros and company at the last whale tasting. Reviewed from notes. Think this was an 09 vintage.

A - Poured into my Kate the Great tulip a hazy straw hue with a sudsy head that fades to a thin blanket. Nice light lacing here.

S - Super, super sour tart funk. Big, tart lemons with lots of oak barrel. Some nice green apple notes too. Oh wow!

T - TONS of green apples here, tart, tart sour green apple sinks as well. Lemons and green apples with good earthy notes as well along with light oak.

M - Mouthfeel is super tart and delicious. Never really puckering, but almost mind shattering dry.

O - Overall this was an exceptional bottle. So glad I got to try this little slice of heaven.

A: Slightly hazy golden yellow with a very white laced head.

S: Very estery with sour apple tones throughout.

T: Amazing. one of the best sours I've ever had. Subtle sweetness with intense but not overpowering sour berry and apple through. The smooth oak flavor does a great job of bringing everything together.

M: Very thin with and almost over carbonation.

O: This is the second best sour I've ever had behind batch 1 consecration aged for 6 years. Amazing beer. Worth it's trade value and more.

2009 Vintage (Aged 38 months)
