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.

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)
