4.23/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A: A very, very cloudy pale orange. Lots of fine sediment. Tall frothy and fizzy white head. Head sticks around for quite a long time. Big fluffy rings of lacing.
S: Lightly tart and fruity aroma. Citrusy with some pear perhaps? Citrus rind and funk when swirled.
T: Tart citrus and lots of it. Not quite full-on sour but close. Very lemony but maybe some orange peel in there too. A bit funky in the middle. Very light and crisp bready/cracker malt in the finish. Mild, drying citrus peel aftertaste.
M: Higher carbonation. Decent medium body.
O: Ahh, one of the best sours I've had. Had temptation last night but this is way better. Not as sour, not as wine-y. Very crisp and refreshing. Not as complex but it works well. Nice refreshing tartness. Really ups the drinkability. Not overpowering either; well-balanced. Really well made.

4.6/5 rDev +6.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - 4.25 - nice golden amber color with a white head that dissipates down pretty quickly. Hazy but probably because I poured the entire thing aggressively into the glass.
S - 4.5 - Green apple, sour lemon, barnyard flavors from the brett. Hay, bread, wheat.
T - 4.75 - Great sour beer. Sour green apple, lemon, white wine, bready yeast, barnyard flavors lingering in the background. White grape.
M - 4.5 - Sour, but not as sour as some other beers. It still allows you to taste some of the citrus and barnyard flavors. light-medium mouthfeel. alc covered. Aftertaste is bready/wheaty and still a little tart.
O - 4.5 - Good beer. Not that much alcohol flavor. Sessionable. Expensive and not available in most places though.
