Poured a hazy yellow into the glass with some light white head swirling around the top of the beer. Tart nose with some lemony esters. This beer tasted like Cantillon Gueuze with pure lemon juice added. Tart like no other beer I've ever experienced. Even some of the veteran sour drinkers at my tasting were puckered by this one. This was not a hit for me. I couldn't imagine drinking a bottle. It's a well made beer, but it was just too one note for me. If you're still learning and exploring sours, do not attempt to tame this beast.

Bottle from the brewery picked up by HopasaurusRex, thanks for the hookup Todd!
Pours a slightly hazy light yellow color with a smallish white head that quickly dissipates to swirls of foam on top. Aromas of lemony tartness and barnyard funk. The flavor is quite tart with huge tooth enamel dissolving properties. Lemons and earthy funk make up most of the flavor here. The finish is fairly dry but leaves a lingering tartness on the palette. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a tart puckering mouthfeel. Tart lightly funky brew thats light and refreshing like lemonade on a hot day. I enjoyed it, I'm glad I got to try it.

375ml bottle picked up at the brewery a week ago, bottled 4/12/13, poured into HF stemmed glass.

A- Pours just a slightly hazy translucent golden color with a thin white head that dissipates into a thin wispy layer. Nice consistent carbonation of tiny bubbles.

S- Slightly lemony, a bit cidery, faint oak, and a boat load of funk consisting of cheese, slight mustiness, and a bit of fungi. Fairly aromatic, very complex.

T- Slight lemon zestiness, lemon peel, sweet cider, slight pepper, earthy funk, oak, finishes with more lemon zest, slight cheesiness. Not as funky as the smell but nice complexity, not too much sourness.

M- Dry, medium bodied, very drinkable, nice carbonation.

O- This is a great coolship style beer and easily one of the best sours coming out of the US however I don't think it quite compares to some of the best Belgian gueuzes and lambics. Definitely worth trying if you like funky beers and I'm very glad I have relatively easy access to this beer as its only available at the brewery in Portland, Maine.
