3oz pour at Dan's house. Bottle barely popped, not a good sign. Cloudy light orange. Big time acetic acid in the nose and flavor. Pinesol nose. Also some cardboard and plastic in the flavor. Low carb. Not good, though others liked it better.

Bottle from my parents, poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a nice looking glossy orange color with a foamy white head that stiffened and slid off at a mild pace. Some stringy lace.
The aroma started off with some sweet to tart apricot bits, light sour to sweet Brett, tart green apple, clean apple cider vinegar and then ended with a light leather sweetness.
The flavor brought the apricot playfully arranging the sweet to the tart and added in a semi-sour to tart Brett edge over some sweet wood. Aftertaste had the strong sweet to tart apricot along with the sweet wood.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a decent sipping quality about it. Some pucker is there gripping my lips, but not distracting (acceptable to me). Carbonation felt spot on. ABV felt just as good.
Overall, pretty nice American Wild ale packing the sour punch nicely. Don't think "fruited sour" for this one, but don't think big "lip sucking" puckering sort of sour ale.

The beer pours as very strong and very vigorous head that takes along time to dissipate and even go down a bit. The beer itself is a really nice apricot orange that is extremely cloudy. It would normally be a very good luck that I definitely like if it wasn't for the fact there were bits of dead yeast floating everywhere and other bites.

The beer smell is pretty good. It has a nice and strong apricot note with a slight sugary bit to it. The brett is moderate and blends well with the apricot. Interestingly enough, there seems to be a good apple note going through the smell as well. There also seems to be some leather in the finish.

The taste is pretty good. It still has that nice apricot note with a little less sugar to it. The brett note is much stronger in this case and overshadows the apricot note a little bit.

The feel is good. It's a light bodied beer with a lot of carbonation and heft to it. It's pretty refreshing.

Overall, this beer seems to be pretty good for someone to up their sour game but the more hardcore enthusiasts might be able to find a better sour.
