on tap @ falling rock

"A llama ate bleu cheese. Shat it, and played in it"

This just wasn't good - after drinking so much flawless crooked stave, this just tasted like licking a petting zoo - definitively "barnyard". I couldn't finish it. Hell, I couldn't even come close to finishing it.

I cannot call myself a sour expert but I will take a stab at a short review.

The color is a fairly pale yellow, what you would expect from a Golden Ale. It is fairly hazy and the bottle was a bit of a gusher when I opened it. A strong carbonation with little sticking to the glass.

The smell is funky and like one would expect. The taste is tart and finishes dry. Not overbearingly sour but lacking some malt balance. A little dryer but very easy to drink and pleasant. Almost tastes like lemonade. There aren't any off flavors that I can tell. I would drink many of these. The price point was nice as well.

I could see myself enjoying many more of these in the future if available.

i didn't want to like this, but I'm in love with it. some criticize it for cutting corners or deviating too far from tradition, but wight he beer tasting this good, i have no problems with it, and am actually real curious about the process. and oh, its sooo sour! crystal clear pale yellow with passive carbonation rising up into a half inch or so bone white head. its real clean looking, and has no haze at all until the bottom few drips are poured out into the glass. gorgeous appearance. a slight parmesan cheesy funk to the nose before the white vinegar lactic acidity kicks in and waters the mouth but basically destroys my ability to pick out subtle aromatic nuances. white grape maybe, very tart, very dry. the flavor is similar, more acidity than i know what to do with. more puckery than a lemon, but more flavorful too. i get the wheat, i get the brett, but this is totally dominated by the lacto. must have been a real warm fermentation to rock it out this quickly, id like to learn from the man who made this. shocking there is no oak on it, not that it exhibits any mellow wood character, but just these are usually done that way. way more sour than funk, but they are both there, and that cheesy thing drops out of the finish. splendid beer really, and finally a fairly priced one from trinity. all good things to say about this one, great carbonation and a light body, hot weather beer. i can forgive the bastardization of the term gueuze if it tastes this good.

12.7oz bottle into a tulip. No freshness dating.

Pale golden yellow body, average carbonation replenishes a small bright white head. no lacing though.

A pleasant champagne apple cider aroma

Taste is mildly funky, a little tart & sour, and also mildly sweet

This one initially feels a little dead in the light to medium mouth, but does finish with a slightly sweet tartness.

overall, I found this a difficult beer to rate & describe. it is not unpleasant in any way, just seems subdued and a bit lacking in flavor. I will say though, that the longer the drink went on, as it warmed, the more i began to appreciate the delicateness.
