From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 41354. Sampled on June 22, 2013.

It looks wonderful with decent pale yellow/golden color and a small head that lingers for a moment but eventually fades away.

The aroma is sour, hoppy, and biscuity. The sour character takes center stage.

The body is light to medium.

The taste is most definitely a sour ale. Alcohol is well integrated, Don't try to sugar-coat it or anything it will come up just the same. So as far as sour ales go this really meets or exceeds to style. It really is not my favorite style so it is difficult to review. Sour ale fans will like this one.

Purchased at Fleming Place in Topeka, KS. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a half finger's worth of head which quickly fizzed away. Thin bubbles stayed at the edges and with a good swirl turned into a thin cap which left some nice lacing on the sides. Looks like a cider. Golden in color. Doesn't look like too much.

Aroma: Apple vinegar, acidic cider, white wine and a lactic tang. Earthy, humid basement. Faint oak. Rotting pineapple and dirty hay.

Taste: Wave of acidic and tangy vinegar. Sour grapes and tart rotting apples. Stomach acid and finishes with a bit of barrel and a hint of vanilla. The lactic tangyness actually keeps the sourness from being offensive. No hint of booze.

Mouthfeel: Fizzy. High carbonation. Drying. Slight warmth in the throat.

Overall: Fairly new to the style but I like this as an introduction. I don't know if I'm getting acid reflux or if it's just the beer in my throat. Excellent on the first day of summer. Not overly complex but being fairly new I'm still getting used to the sour. You know you always seem them on the shelf, pick one up already.

Poured from the 11.2 ounce bottle into a Petrus chalice. Cider-like aroma; one finger of foam, quickly dissipates; golden color; super dry and definitely more tart than the Oud Bruin? I swear this reminds me of my homemade cider (which I wish were this good); bet this would be grand with brunch; i definitely like it; what other treasures does this brewery have?
