4.55/5 rDev -0.4%
Reviewed from notes from 6/10/14
A- Pours clear and golden with a half-finger of bright white tight foam. This recedes to a collar and leaves some lacing. Some nice alcohol legs are observed when swirled.
S- The aroma is very sour and there is a lot of Brett funk. Overripe apples, tart cherries, pineapple, and oak tannins. Some Granny Smith apple and lemony sourness. Very complex, refreshing, and inviting aroma!
T- Wow, this is warhead sour! Crazy amounts of cherry and lemon sourness. The oak tannins are the only thing restraining and mellowing the sourness. Very acidic and lactic. Refreshing, but bracingly sour!
M- The mouth feel is delicate, medium bodied, and lightly carbonated.
O- This is an excellent sour, though not for the uninitiated! Maybe lacking the complexity and subtleties needed to make it truly world class, but wonderful none-the-less!

4.39/5 rDev -3.9%
Poured from a 375ml bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #6
A- Pours a deep chardonnay golden yellow color. Has a very high wine like clarity. Small fizzy head that dissipated quickly.
S- Lots of sour apple, some vinegar, some light vanilla, good amount of oak. some white wine character in there.
T- Similar to aroma but amplified to an insane degree. Lots of tart lemon, sour apple, and vinegar. Finishes with a dry yeasty note. Has that old barn cellar thing that sours usually have.
M- Medium-light the flavor makes this a sipper.
O- This is one of the most sour beers I've had and if you're looking for something that delivers in the pucker department seek this one out. It is also somewhat too sour for me in my tastes. It's missing a bit of the subtlety that I got from Supplication. Still an amazing beer and if you want to test the limits of sour seek it out.
