3.32/5  rDev -18.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Sparkling, fizzy head, petering out to nothing in half a minute. Body is deep amber, not quite clear, looking flat.
Plums and blueberry aroma, pie crust, mild.
Sour fruit flavours, wouldn't say strongly of plum, maybe some cherry, apple. Sweeter at first and increasingly tart through the finish, which is long and dry. Bitterness like you sucked on a peach pit. Under-carbonated, it's almost flat, but with just enough fizz and a good body that it's still enjoyable.

I'd say I got a bad bottle, but other reviews remark on low carbonation as well. Depth of flavour isn't what I'd hoped for, nor is there a distinct plum flavour. It's ok, but not worth spending the big bucks required to have it in Canada.

4/5  rDev -2%

Appearance -Very nice murky golden orange, essentially zero head.

Smell - Funky fermenting fruit, acid, minimal booze

Taste - very tasty hint of plums unfortunately a bit overshadowed by the brett. I like brett but the strength of this beer I think is in the fruit so it would have been nice if this came out a bit more more. A bit more boozy flavor than many sours at 6.2%.

Mouthfeel - Appropriate level of carbonation, thinner mouthfeel typical of sours.

Overall - I love sours so I always love to find a new and unique one. Will buy again.
