On tap at the brewery. Nice to see that someone is making a sour literally 5 minutes from my house.

Pale gold with some fuzzy lacing and a little bit of white head to cap it off. Has a nice unfiltered ruggedness to it.

Smells like under ripe white grapes and has some funkiness to it. Pretty nice! Subtle but present.

Nice smooth thin and slightly tart. They called this a "Young sour" which is very true. It could use some time but it was just so damn refreshing I gave it a 4.

Was a little thin for my liking but all the well, it was a refreshing little beer with some bight to it.

I could drink this all day. Cheers, ERB!

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.
