Pours a hazed golden color with a white, fluffy foam and plenty of lace. The aroma is sour, but with bready notes, a bit acetic. In the taste, very pronounced sour note and very crisp and refreshing. Listed in the beer menu as a Berliner Weisse, this would be on the more sour end of that style. Fresh squeezed lemons, good tartness and a clean finish. Light to medium bodied and easy drinking. Overall, this is a very nice, approachable sour from Weyerbacher. If this were bottled I would pick it up from time to time.

A tart lemony brew towards a Berliner Weisse. Wheat finish, medium light mouthfeel. Hints of green apricot.

A medium light amount of flavor that has a lingering bready and wheat finish.

Let's call this a session wild ale. I bet that's tomorrow's new craze. You heard it here first folks!

This has nice smooth funky character. Nothing too outlandish, but nothing too bland or boring either. Minimal citrus of the lemon variety. I like this beer a lot! I would drink this all the time. Unfortunately, I have an addiction to ticking, which means on to the next! I'll be keeping this one in mind though.

EBF sample.

A-I can't remember much about the appearance. It was definitely yellowish or very pale.

S-Pretty standard in terms of a Wild Ale. You can clearly pick up some tartness in the nose. I would most closely approximate this to lemon tartness. There was also a pleasant balance with some sweetness. Maybe some barrel influence.

T-Mostly funky and tart off the bat. Really seemed to be pretty generic in terms of a sour brew. It wasn't puckering. Zesty yeast and a squished compilation of unripened fruits come to mind. Tartness dies off and finishes grainy.

M-Relatively light in body. No booze. Medium carbonation.

O/D-This was during the end of my EBF session. Many of my thoughts were very hazy by then but I thankfully jotted down a few quick descriptors in my smartphone.

From 03/15/15 notes. 14 oz. pour of this in a tulip at Rattle 'N Hum in NYC.

Pours a hazy burnt orange color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. This beer is funky as hell, lots of tart fruits, citrus, light vinegar, dirt, earthy malts. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Overall a pretty nice light sour; kind of like a super funky berliner. Worth checking out for sure.
