This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

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. (316 characters)

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. (403 characters)

Hazy orange-amber with decent head formation and carbonation (impressive). Lot of brett on the nose, barnyard and a touch of plastic and sulfur. Little bit of peach and pineapple. Palate is oaky with stonefruit, pineapple and funk. Lot of drying brett and oak. A bit phenolic. This is pretty good, but Track 3 was superior despite its lack of carbonation. (355 characters)

Nice split with rudzud.

Very small fizzy head fades pretty quickly, no lacing semi clear slight hazy orange red color.

Nose big sour tart funk, acetic acid, tart flemmy like sour malts and sour fruit, a little jammy raspberry seed like.

Taste brings more sourness, light with decent sour funk, little bready note, sour malt but a blonde malt like, tart berry funk, sour raspberry like with little seed, hint tangy flemmy, little acetic acid, little malty sour malt flavor. Finish little flemmy sticky sour berry seed and acetic acid, little sour malt, etc.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, light carb, little sticky flemmy.

Overall pretty interesting, nice blend of sour malt and fruity sour thing. (703 characters)
