Thanks to dunt for sharing this!

White head. Golden orange in color.

Flavor is very sour and funky. A nice grape and wine flavor. A lot of peach and apricot flavors. Funky and fruity. It ends with an odd butterscotch flavor.

Mouthfeel: sour and tart. Lighter bodied.

Overall, this is a really nice sour. Very easy to drink with a lot of awesome fruit flavors. I am a big fan of this one!

A: A pale yellow and hazy body with a very thick and white head.

S: Very good. Very sharp esters and sour aromas. Perfectly balanced with a subtle sweet caramel sweetness.

T: It starts off as a very pleasant sour apple flavor and then it transitions to a perfect sour caramel flavor. This should be a measuring stick for all sour beers.

M: Nice heavy body with a very sharp carbonation.

O: Amazing sour. Get this one as soon as you can.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one during the Churchill's weekend festivities.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, Brett, herbs, and a peachy fruit aroma. Taste is much the same with super tart grain and fruity flavors and an alcohol kick on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice balance between sourness and the Brett presence.
