One of the most solid American takes I’ve tried on the style. If Natty Greene’s continues to build its sour progam with beers like this, it’s only a matter of time before people start noticing.

500ml brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Mildly hazed pale golden hue, decent lacing on top. Smells super funk with some hints of ripe lemons, barn yard, and wild flowers. Puckering at first but my palate adjusts quickly to the tartness. Tart throughout with some underlying funkiness, lots of wood and suggestions of lemon and hay. While there are some layers of complexity the funkiness does not go too far off course. A very good stab at the style, job well done.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. 2015 vintage.

A- Pours a slightly hazy medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and nearly no surface foam. Minimal lacing.

S- Funky aroma definitely of the Gueuze persuasion though not as pungent.

T- Oh yeah, definitely nails that Gueuze characteristic of high sourness with the tangy fruit notes but still super dry and funky. Keeps me coming back for more as notes of apple, pear and cumquat make an appearance. High level of acidity.

M- High amount of pucker with a drying feeling that leaves an interesting coating on the palate. Medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Proof that we Americans can do it as well as the Belgians. So lucky to have a brewery doing such crazy good sours so close to me. If only they came around more often. Oh well.

4.22/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a thin film of a head that quickly fades to a ringlet; streaky lace

Smell: Acetic and vinous, with a lemony edge

Taste: Acetic lemon with a hint of vanilla; vinous, white wine grape tartness develops; puckery, dry finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with prickly carbonation

Overall: Another top flight sour from Natty's; this program could really explode if the brewer's were unleashed to produce more

Clear yellow body with a small white collar. Oak and funk. Lots of wood characters oft carbonation. Bright on the palate with mild acetic character. Some white grape notes. Mild sweetness. Pretty good.

Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with moderate white head. Smell is definitely funk - barnyard, with a hint of vinegar. Taste is dominated by a citrus-like sour, but pleasantly so, and it finishes with a touch of funk. Well-carbonated, it tingles the tongue but goes sown easily. Overall, a fun take on the style - excited to try the other sours from this year's program.
