375ml bottle poured into HF fest glass, thanks Josh (thebigredone)
A- Pours a straw colored yellow with a bit of cloudy haze, about a quarter finger of white head forms that quickly resides leaving some thin spotty lacing, carbonation a little bit on the low side and inconsistent.
S- Nice yeast profile with a bit of hay, straw, souring organisms, and a pleasant citrus aroma consisting mostly of lemons. Fairly aromatic, nice complexity and sour/yeast profile, will continue to develop nicely with age.
T- Tart acidic lemon juice up front with a wheat base and a bit of hay, straw, and barnyard funk. Finish is sour zesty lemons and lemon peel. Nice flavorful sour without being overly acidic.
M- Medium bodied, nice carbonation to lightly tingle the tongue fitting with the sour profile without being over-carbonated, fairly drinkable without being too acidic.
O- This was a nice mildly funky sour with distinct citrus qualities. Definitely one of the better American sours I've had and I'd love to try this again sometime. This will only improve with age.

A - Golden with a light haze and a small white head
S - Tart lemon, light blue cheese funk, and tart vinegar that gives it a good balance of tart and funk 4.5
T - Green apple, lemon peel, white vinegar and light oak. Reminds me a bit of a sour apple juice. Light blue cheese funk near the backend that balances the tartness 4.25
M - Not much carbonation but has a tart bite from the vinegar and tartness. Finish has a light tingle near the end.
O - Tart and lightly funked sour that has a nice apple presence balanced with a slight blue cheese funk

on-tap @ falling rock
Heavy goblet pours - bright straw-orange body, lovely white lace. Lots of citrus, funky grassy goodness, lots of brett notes, vinous white wine, yellow peach, passion fruit. I had a few pours of this, really lovely beer from an impressive brewery.
