Props to BJhorvat for bringing this to DLD and so we could have a legitamite comparison to Cable Car. bwahahaha, I kid I kid...

I'm not going to get to detailed because I made it through two tastes.

once it hits your mouth it tastes much like you would expect an American Wild sour to taste like. However within 5 seconds the sour turns into the exact taste of fresh puke. No one would have more than a sip and that includes the 6 or 7 random guys at DLD that we gave pours of. We even offered someone $20 to chug the remaining third of the bottle, no bites.

Bottle # 1/336

Brought this bottle to an "American Sour" tasting at a friend's place. The bottle was shared between about 12 people or so, and the reviews were very similar to the reviews on here: the majority hated it. But, there were a few people (including myself) that were glad to finish the bottle and actually enjoyed it.

A - Golden blonde in color with a small, receding head.

S - Acidic and funky. To me it smelled like lemons and vinegar.

T - Very acidic and vinegar-ish tasting upfront, but that fades into a sour lemon / grassy taste. Other people thought it tasted like nail polish remover and were immediately ready for a new beer. By no means was it the best tasting beer of the evening, but I didn't find the taste objectionable at all.

M - Mouthfeel was thin / medium bodied.

O - I wouldn't go out of your way to find this, but if someone opens a bottle I would suggest giving it a try with an open mind.

Reviewed from voice notes taken at a previous tasting.
Typed up in an attempt to finally consolidate all of my reviews in one place.

Shared by whitemomba.

I'm a huge FFF fanboy.... so please understand that this review is truthful. Painfully so.

Looks kinda like a gueuze... Golden yellow with a small white head.

Smells like easter egg dye.
You know that smell-- that vinegar/chemical/fake wood/formaldehyde. Actually, it smells like easter egg dye in an open vat in a room fitted with fresh wood paneling.

Little musty... Little earthy.... Little sour... But nothing really GOOD going on here. The aftertaste is actually QUITE unpleasant. Umm... Wow.

This is a bit overcarbonated... And it's like dirty and dank. Just burns funny.

Overall-- not a beer that's worth getting. If you have one: TRADE IT.
If you don't have one: consider yourself lucky.

Really sad.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 7 held at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Bottle # 71/336

Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some vinegar, grain, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with an acidic quality on the finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Big thanks goes out to aasher for sharing this one a few days before his wedding while in Destin, FL! Thanks Al! Bottle 309 of 336! Served from bottle into a Boulevard tulip. Poured a golden yellow with a one and a half finger white head that subsided to a half finger very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, tart, sour, wood, and acetic acid. The flavor was of sweet malt, citrus rine, wood, fruit, sour, tart, and subtle vinegar. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. Overall this one was pretty interesting. However, there was a little something off-putting on the flavor of this one. It wasn’t bad by any means, just not what one would expect from the style. The aroma and mouthfeel on this one were quite nice for the style. A definite must try if you are lucky enough to get the opportunity.
