Reviewed from long-standing notes. Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into an El Catador teku glass.

A: Pours a light gold with orange highlights, and very hazy. Forms a thin white head that fades away fairly quickly, with lots of visible carbonation.

S: Citrus and tropical fruits, dank and melon. Lactic tartness with some lemony citric acid and a modest barnyard funk. Light cracker malts, and is there maybe a touch of wheat? Very nice here.

T: Lactic tart and lemon zest up front. Citrus and tropical and melon fruity hops, with a bit of dank as well - but less than I got on the nose. Cracker malt body and a modest funk – barnyard and Lactobacillus. Modest dry and hop bitter finish.

M: A light body with lots of carbonation sensation. Low alcohol presence.

O: I've drank this at least twice, and really enjoyed it both times. At least in my memory, right up there with Hop Savant for a tart, funky, hoppy brew that's right up my alley. Excellent.

500ml bottle poured into glass. Stamped bottling date on bottle neck is obscured but looks like an early 2017 bottling.
Brewed and bottled by Krebs Brewing Company, Krebs OK.
Murky, straw colored body. Two finger white, fizzy head settles to thick, fizzy cap. No lacing.
Aroma is funky lemon and citrus hops.
Lots of mellow funk in the taste, with citrus hops and tart lemon adding in. Rather dry and quick ending taste profile.
Very silky, very pleasant mouth feel. More of a tart mouth feel, with just a touch of sour. Higher carbonation level.
All around pleasant and enjoyable beer to drink. One must like sour beer to enjoy this, but does have a presence of hops that add to the experience.

500ml bottle, brewed and bottled by Krebs Brewing Company, Krebs Oklahoma.

Pours a hazy straw yellow, an inch of foam with the gentle pour, some lacing.

Big notes of Brett, lemon citrus, fruity tartness and oak in the smell. Now getting some apple vinegar.

Tartness starts things off. A mix of lemon zest and oranges, Brett shines after the first few sips, oaky, cracker malt...complex and delicious.

Nice lightish mouthfeel, excellent for the style.

Dang this is pretty awesome.

A: Poured into a tulip to a slightly hazy bright gold topped by a dense finger and a half of white head which fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of some nice sourness, earthy funk and some juicy citrus hop notes.
T: Taste is juicy citrusy hops with a nice underlying sourness and some earthy funk. Swallow is more great juicy citrus, some bready malt, earthy funk and some lingering tartness.
M: This beer is light in body but not watery with a fairly crisp mouthfeel. Carbonation is just below prickly and adequate while the beer has a slightly drying finish.
O: Overall this is one damn tasty beer with some great flavors and complexity. I really like this series and it's probably my favorite group of sour beers that they do. Definitely worth a try if you like dry hopped sour beer.

Light gold in color with a light haze. There's a fingernail of off white covering most of the rim rim and just about the size of a penny in the middle. The aroma is of citra hops and tart brettanomyces. I'm tasting the the tart brettanomyces and sweet saison flavor. There's also a bit of citrus citra hops. The mouth is very dry and carbonated.
