Huge thanks to kubrick215 for sharing.

Pours a very cloudy, murky golden yellow color with dark ripe banana hues and a half finger off-white head that quickly dissapears.  Minimal spotty lacing.

Musty, slightly funky aroma with a nice farmhouse/barnyard presence along with toasted oak, lactic funk and musty brett.  Almost wheat/Berliner like with sourdough bread, citrus juice, wild yeast and a lactic cheese character.  Lots of lemon citrus character and the lactic funk stands out more as it warns.

Full bodied, especially for the style with a really nice balance of barrel, dry, musty brett, citrus acidity and lactic funk.  Crisp and refreshing with lemon acidity nicely complimenting the dry, musty brett.  Dry toasted oak carefully blended in, melding nicely and not overpowering the other notes.  Nice carbonation/spritzer like with the lactic funk coming on strong in the back end with subtle cheesiness.  Well balanced and easy to drink considering the complexity.  I really enjoyed this one a lot.

S - Tart lemon and oakiness.

T - Tart lemon, wheat, wood, very nice.

D - Good carbonation, light body. Tart with a farmhouse finish.

O - Another CS winner in my book. Tart lemon and oak goodness.

Got a bottle of this in Boulder. A local session sour ale? Sign me up.

Poured into a pint. Hazy straw yellow. "Straw" really is a perfect descriptor of this one. Lots of bubbles. Billowy white head settles to a fine layer.

Nose is great. Sugary and sour. Sweet-tarts. Brettanomyces.

Taste is a mild sour ale. Nice vinegary sour flavor that is not over the top. Gentle hops come through.

Really good mouthfeel. A bit bubbly/foamy, really fits the style.

Very nice and unique beer, very well done. Good to see a drinkable sour beer that is not accompanied by a giant ABV.
