Grape heavy, oak as well. Mildly sour. Tad bit watery, not much carbonation.

Wow, amazing sour! Light golden color and substantial carbination. Beautiful brew.

Smells funky and sweet. Lemony, zesty, funky.

I wish I had a few of these to see how they age. This is a great sour.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Bottle # 307/450.

Pours a hazy golden-orange with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, hay, funk, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, funk, hay, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is the closest thing to a gueuze that I have tasted from an American sour.

Serving type: bottle.

750ml C&C bottle of the first batch. Bottle 296/450. Poured into an O'So snifter 5/31/2014.

A- Slightly hazy burnt orange body that nevertheless looks bright like a pale ale would. Half finger white head with little to no retention, not much lacing. If it weren't for the small head presence, I'd say this looked like a still lambic. Swirling the glass does bring out more of the short-lived head.

S- Grainy and acidic- vinegar, lactate- with a small touch of citrus rind. This is more sour in the nose than any other characteristic I can pull out. The acidity is sharp but pleasant, lots of oak. Surprisingly this is not terribly funky; aside from a bit of musty hay, there isn't much more depth. Still, this nose is very aromatic and pleasant to take in.

F- Vinegar, lactate, a bit of musty hay, lemon rind, dry oak, a little bit of vinous character. Not particularly complex and there are no off-flavours here. I would have liked more funk presence to add to the 7/10 acidity which was not bracing but still a force to be reckoned with.

M- Thinner bodied, significantly lower carbonation than other similarly crafted American Wild Ales to the point where it could very well be still. Not difficult to drink, but more bubbles would definitely help a lot. Very dry, oaky finish.

O- Solid effort. For my $20, I'd rather have bought a 750ml of Drie Fonteinen Oude Gueze, but I hope they continue to hone the craft of brewing and blending AWAs as I've still enjoyed this one and look forward to future releases. I suspect that any additional bottles (I have none) could use some time to develop more complexity and carbonation in the bottle.
