11.2 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that for the most part is still there. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Oakey, sour, funky, sweet pale malts, chardonnay grapes, apples,

Taste: Tart, sour, bready, and bitter. Super pucker of a beer. Some oak and chardonnay grapes in there too.

Mouthfeel: A little smooth, pucker, chewy, a bit dry, low to medium carbonation, and light to medium bodied.

Overall: Wow, I might have to get more of these soon. Pretty solid beer.

Appearance: Hazy straw yellow color with a small soapy white head. Champagne like carbonation streaming through the glass.

Smell: Smell is very tart with notes of white grape, green apple, lemon.

Taste: Sour apple, vinegar, white wine, lemon. There's a hint of sweetness that helps cut the sourness/tartness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: Really tasty beer and a bit of a pleasant surprise considering I wasn't that impressed with the Petrus Oud Bruin. Worth picking up a bottle if you see it.

Purchased on-tap at HotShots Family Entertainment Center in beautiful downtown Pismo Beach CA on a rainy Thursday evening. This selection was a fine nightcap, a palette cleanser after an evening of drinking heavy, syrupy beers (Parobla, Ovila Quad, Black Marlin Porter). This sour was simple and sufficient - a pleasure to be what ended our drinking evening.
