This is a great young sour beer from Eagle Rock Brewery. It's great cause the brewery is right down the street from my house, and it's exactly what we needed in this area!

From what I can tell, there were historically some off bottles (or batches?) of this beer. Particularly the 750s. This was a 2016 375 and it was quite nice. Vinous - like a more mineral sauvignon blanc, unripe pears, almost saline, oaky, hint of brett funkiness in the back. Finishes dry but with an impression of sweetness from the fruit notes. Feels crisp, well carbonated, long clean finish.

Thanks to jedwards for opening this one. Well, the initial appearance does not really instill confidence - urine yellow is what immediately comes to mind, minus any foam or bubbles. Nose expresses a tart and slightly funky character as well as some hints of cork. Taste reveals light, tart fruits and a slightly salty character. Mouthfeel is light, lively and refreshing with a slight astringency. Overall, I was surprised at how good this beer was. A truly palate cleansing and refreshing offering. Perhaps not the most complex or funky American Wild, but well worth trying this beer if the opportunity presents.

On tap at the brewery. Nice to see that someone is making a sour literally 5 minutes from my house.

Pale gold with some fuzzy lacing and a little bit of white head to cap it off. Has a nice unfiltered ruggedness to it.

Smells like under ripe white grapes and has some funkiness to it. Pretty nice! Subtle but present.

Nice smooth thin and slightly tart. They called this a "Young sour" which is very true. It could use some time but it was just so damn refreshing I gave it a 4.

Was a little thin for my liking but all the well, it was a refreshing little beer with some bight to it.

I could drink this all day. Cheers, ERB!
