750 ml. bottle that had developed a small leak. Was still a gusher. Poured a cloudy golden orange with a huge white head. Aroma of citrus, barnyard, and wood. Taste is lemon, grapefruit, apples, funk, malt, wood, and barnyard. Was a mild taste of vinegar. All things considered (leak) it was excellent.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Finally completed this series with this tick of the Winter edition... Bottle poured hazy, amber/golden/orange with a well laced head. An amazing aroma of citrus, funk, earthy spices, and wood. A lot of those aroma notes translated into the flavor too. Mouthfeel was just right, not too dry and attenuation was spot on. Some sour acidic notes, but a great deal of horse-blankey brett notes and funky barnyard characters. Seriously amazing.

750mL bottle shared by a generous soul during RBWG 2013. This was my least favorite of the four versions. Fizzy golden pour with a nice off-white head. Funk, sour, doughiness, some barnyard and touches of lactic sourness as well. Very nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled @ RBESG 13 Grand Tasting. Orange to amber colour with a small white head. Smells car tire, rubbery, sour. Tastes sour, dusty and car tire. But not in a bad way! Quite a lot of carbo and a medium body.
