Track 12 is a non fruited sour ale. It is a blend of three base beers (Avant Garde, a previously unreleased sour brown ale, and Gift of the Magi). There were two barrels of Avant Garde, one oak barrel of the sour brown, and a splash of the Magi in the final blend.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Murky orange. Thin collar and a couple bubbles.

Smell - Fruity, like peaches. Acidic and bready malts.

Taste - Bretty sourness. Lots of fruit flavors and grainy malts. Less exciting than the smell.

Mouthfeel - Bretty and dry. A little heavy.

Overall - Quality flavors, but it's not really intense. I want a more intense flavor.

A - Dark orange with red highlights

S - Tart raspberry, lemon, and lactic acid 4.5

T - Light tart fruit with nice blue cheese funk. Definitely was much funkier than it smells . The funk also lingers on in the finish.

M - Medium body with light carbonation to it. Dry finish

O - Solid funky yet not too tart beer.

Thanks Todd!

A - White foam settles to a thin collar, wisps, and specks of lace. Hazed dark golden body.

S - The aroma is very bizarre, with sulfur, dishwater, rancid funk, a bit of baby vomit and diaper, and an odd oxidized note. Some of the dirtiest funk I've encountered, and not in a good way. Perhaps a faint hint of sweet malt in the periphery.

T - The taste is much better, with lactic sourness, tart stone fruits, light sweet malts, oak, and some medicinal brett in the finish. Still a bit odd,

M - Smooth, creamy, medium body. Pleasant carbonation, and no obvious alcohol. Pretty nice stuff here.

D - Don't mind this one, other than the rank aroma, but it's one of my least favorite beers in the set. I can't see others finding it downright disgusting, as the funk was verging on too much even for me.
