30th Birthday Party
Shared by UclaBrewN84

App- A lighter yellow with some small fizzy bubbles on the top. Didn't leave much in terms of cling if at all.

Smell- A little all over the place on the flavors. On one sip you get some Brett intermixed with fruit and on the next you get some pressed wood flavors. A little spotty but tasty none the less. It was good and I want to rate higher but with the quality of sours on Fri. Hard pressed to raise it.

Mouth- A bit of a dry medium body with a medium carbonation level. A little bit of the pressed wood and the fruit remains.

Drink- Wasn't the worst sour nor the best. Pretty run of the mill. I think some time would do this one well.

Bottle shared at FosterJM's birthday celebration that I brought myself.

Pours a murky light yellow with a tan head that fades to nothing. No lacing on this one. Smell is sour and tart with a slight amount of funk and some mineral and slightly sulphur-like aromas. Taste is much the same with a nice lemon-like flavor as well. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good sour with a better taste than smell.

Thanks to jedwards for opening this one. Well, the initial appearance does not really instill confidence - urine yellow is what immediately comes to mind, minus any foam or bubbles. Nose expresses a tart and slightly funky character as well as some hints of cork. Taste reveals light, tart fruits and a slightly salty character. Mouthfeel is light, lively and refreshing with a slight astringency. Overall, I was surprised at how good this beer was. A truly palate cleansing and refreshing offering. Perhaps not the most complex or funky American Wild, but well worth trying this beer if the opportunity presents.
