look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz. brown bottle purchased at the brewery on the release day. Poured into a Russian River tulip.

A: Pours a ruby tinted amber with decent clarity, possibly from the long cellaring. Latte looking head with some retention and good lacing.

S: La Roja aroma up front with some added funk. More tart than sour but a decent amount of both. Tart cherries with a bit of acid. Plenty of barrel.

T/M: The Lucy comes out more in the flavor and delivers more sourness than expected. Still plenty of tart cherries and even a bit of a lactic edge. Plenty of barrel, and maybe even too much as things seem a bit muddled together and almost lays flat on the tongue. Things dry up considerably more than when I had this fresh, but could go even further. Carbonation is spot on.

D: This beer has definitely developed in the funk and sour/tart areas but now seems to have lost its direction. I like it now more than when it was fresh. Still a decent sour that hits the spot.

Thank you, Peter!

Amber with a white head and little lacing, this looks nice. The nose is yeasty, funky, mildly sulfury, with mellow lactic and acetic acids. Nice. This smells fresh (grassy) and farmhouse-y. Apposed to Consecration, this held its own. Fruity, acetic, lactic and funky, this is well-balanced, well-structured and quite enjoyable.

Thanks dougofthefuture!

Deep amber colored with medium clarity. Funky and grassy aroma with hints of mustard seed (I think). The taste is slightly disappointing: mild, watery and weak? Oaky and tannic. The carbonation could have been higher, otherwise the mouthfeel is ok.

I am not wowed.

Hazy amber with a white head. Citrusy aromas w/ an almost mineral quality. Mildy sweet with a citric tartness underneath. Medium bodied with lightly spritzy mouthfeel. Great intensity with unbelievable drinkabilty. Love the delicateness of this beer.

I got this one from Raznug in a bif a while back. This one pours a rusty brownish red with a thin layer of white foam.

Vinous aroma with dark some note of oak and vanilla come to mind. A bit of a tart white grape skin aroma with some a little bit of balsamic vinegar in the background. Mild slightly tart flavors with some vanilla and some grape flavors. A little woody.

Light-medium body with soft carbonation. Overall pretty enjoyable. A little more on the subtle side but still tasty.

Poured into a chalice. The color is light brown; slightly orange. Let's call it burnt sienna. There are a few bubbles floating around but it doesn't amount to much.

The aroma has a great blend of oak and some vinegar. There is a hint of malt sweetness there as well. I get hints of orange and cherry.

The taste is full of lemongrass. The aroma indicated more malt sweetness and fruit than the taste yields. There is a nice bit of orange rind as well.

This drinks relatively light. The carbonation is light and kind of fluffy.

This is good stuff.

Thanks to foofaa for sharing this one with us at a recent tasting.

A - Pours murky amber orange with a fingers worth of white foam leaving light lace down the glass.

S - Smells of tart funkiness, horse blanket, apples, citric fruit, oak and a muted caramel malt backbone. A ton of lactic funkiness throughout the nose.

T - Starts off with a touch of caramel sweetness quickly being enveloped by the decent sized lactic sourness kick. Once the sourness dies down a bit you get hints of apples, pears, lemons and some dry oak that lingers on the pallet for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Lots of lactic tartness initially leaving the pallet dry at the finish.

O - Compared to most of the other sours we drank this one was nothing special but I still enjoyed it none the less. It had plenty of flavor to keep me coming back for more. Thanks again Dan!

This beer pours a dark yellow to orange color with a small head. The smell is mildly tart and funky with hints of lemon, green apple, and a little bit of barnyard funk. The taste is again mildly sour with the funk and lemony flavor balancing it out. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with fairly low carbonation. Overall a very drinkable sour beer and would be a good introduction for someone if it were not such a hard to find beer
