Kansas

3.73/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Enjoyed on tap at Bier Station in Kansas City out of a small Belgian-style tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a shiny golden translucent color with blonde highlights and some patches of darker brass. Head is bright white and two fingers thick, consisting of extremely fine bubbles with just a few larger bubbles smattered throughout. Takes a few minutes to dissipate, leaving a opaque curtains of lacing coating the sides of the glass.

Smell - Very enticing, with the dominant aroma of Granny Smith and pineapple along with notes of wet hay, a little bit of barnyard funk, fresh lemon and some acidic vinegary characteristics. Some faint astringency that ends up providing a kick without ruining the smell. Actually, I like the sinus-clearing aspect of it.

Taste - A lot of similar profiles to the smell, with more green apple, now with some Anjou pear and now I get some oak and other elements of fragrant wood on the finish. Reminiscent of chardonnay with some characteristics of tannin.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with aggressive carbonation and a very dry finish that almost leaves you grasping for a glass of water... or another sip of delicious beer.

Overall, a very tasty beer that's lighter in character than most oud bruins that I've had the pleasure to sample. It makes it a little more refreshing, but also a little bit one-note in my opinion.

4.08/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Nice pale yellow-gold colour.

Mostly sweet cherry-like notes on the nose with slight oakiness. Only a hint of tang. Once you taste it some more there are some funky notes as well.

Quite sharply sour taste up front but notes of fruit and wine-like sweetness balance this nicely. The oak flavour comes in shortly afterwards and lasts through the finish. Funky flavours develop through the oak to the dry finish, balancing everything out with a slight of earthiness.

The carbonation starts with a numbing tingle that accompanies the entire experience from numblingly fizzy and sour to funky and dry.

New to sours and this one seems pretty complex but has some great flavours going on.
