3.89/5  rDev -6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of sourness are present in the nose along with strong notes of funk.
T: The taste is rather sour with notes of corn and also has notes of funk from the brett yeast.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation. The clean properties of the lager seem to be masked by the brett funk.
O: The sour corn-like flavor of this beer really reminded me a lot like Peekskill's Simple Sour, except that it had added complexity from the brettanomyces.

I wasn't expecting a lot going into this beer but it had a nice initial tart and funky flavor. However, the aftertaste is that of buttered popcorn. That taste lingers in your mouth after and just takes away from the nice tartness for me.

Poured into a pint glass, a somewhat hazy orange with a faint fruity hue.
The sour aroma comes first and pretty strong, it's the smell I was hoping for, and the taste matches. The tartness is great but not overwhelming, faint dark fruit flavors there too. Mouthful is nice, good carbonation, and the tartness rightfully leaves a bit of a bite.
I very much enjoyed this sour lager, reasonably priced and very drinkable. I'll get it again for sure.

Another good beer from the guys at SingleCut. Really solid sour--a little bit of a popcorn smell? Really drinkable stuff. Keep up the good work SingleCut

As much as I love their IPA's this is the beer that made me think these guys are the real deal. Excellent sour. Seemed very lacto driven as it was fruity but there was a hint of brett funk in there. Please package this beer!

Another brew I got to try at my local SingleCut's Anniversary Party (while gazing at burlesque dancers which were at the party!)

A: Slight haze, beautiful yellow with a hint of amber. Bright high-carb white head

S: Wow. Intense spicy brett mixed with orange, light malt, floral, citrus. Really complex and everything is beautifully integrated

T: Tastes as it smells though the sourness is much more tart than dark "horse blanket". Orange, very subtle malt sweetness, citrus/floral notes. Just a great blend of all the flavors in something that drinks sooo easily

M: About ideal for what I expect from a sour brew, well attenuated but not too thin

O: I drank at least 4 of these back to back and could have kept going. Can't wait to go back for more.
