poured int tulip glass.
reviewed from notes taken 1/17/13.
Appearance: straw yellow bodied beer with 1 finger of white head that drops down to a thin cap.
Smell: Little bit of everything in the nose. A fruity tart note seems to dominate. A touch of hop and a light malt profile. Maybe a hint of vinegar.
Taste: Moderately tart green apples, lemons, and peaches. I detect a hint of light funk. Grassy hops. The tartness is the most lingering quality of the beer. Very nice!
Mouthfeel: Low end of a medium bodied beer almost light bodied beer. Moderate carbonation levels. Crisp and brilliant carbonation in the beer with nice sour mash qualities imbodied in the beer. Drinks really effortlessly, not a hint of the 7.5% abv.
Overall: it reminds me of a little more aggressive version of berlinner weiss that is also fruity. Really unique beer here with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

@ Busy Bee
Cloudy orange-amber with little head to speak of. Interesting aroma...tart funkiness coating toffee-like malts, fruit, cherries, and earthy must. I coax up some acetic notes with a deep sniff. Flavor is tart, again with a solid malt presence for balance. Caramel, cherries, spicy wood, berries, vanilla, slightly phenolic on the back end. Body leans towards the fuller side of medium, and finishes dry and tart. This started out seeming like it was going to be more of a slow-sipper, but became dangerously drinkable and refreshing.
Serving type: on-tap

4.29/5 rDev +2.4%

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a wine glass.
Golden orange. Light light head.
Smell is incredible. Bright fruit. Tart and funky. Lambic. Deep and complex.
Mmmm. Beautiful balsamic vinegar. Light fruit. Vaguely briney. The aftertaste is...wheaty? Lightly dry and vivacious. Mouthfeel is sparkling, clean, and mineraly.
Great sour. Highly recommended. God bless Hair of the Dog and the bartender at Grape & Grain who gave me this.
