ABUSEDGOAT (2419) - California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2008 Cloudy golden orange, moderate to small head with some lacing and retention. Aroma is barnyard action, some vanilla and wood, tart and acidic of course, funk. Medium bodied, acidic with a light sweetness. Good stuff, if only it was a fraction of the cost.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours hazy off-orangy with smallish off-white head. Nose is Granny Smith apply, tart sour mashy fruit, mild funky and charred oaky notes. Tastes tart, with a very pronounced tart apple and pear flavor, plus significant funky, yeasty, and woody notes.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2008
Color like green tea with abundant fine particles and no head, just scant wispy carbonation. Nice crisp citric and barnyard aromas. Flavor has whole wheat notes, vanilla tones, a waxy element, smooth acidity, and pleasant woody dryness in the finish. Lack of carbonation softens this considerably. Very enjoyable.

oh6gdx (23682) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 24, 2008
Bottled (thanks papsoe!). Golden colour, basically no head. After yeast goes in hazy dark golden/nutbrown colour. Aroma is barnyard, very much sourness as well as some wooden notes. Flavour is dry sour fruity and woodenness along with some mild grass and even a bit vanillaish notes. Some slight acidic sourness stays in the aftertaste. Very nice. Gets more barnyardy and earthy after the yeast is poured in, which also takes away some of the sharp sourness. I like this one better with the yeast in. Numbers for rating are given after yeast is in. Without yeast about 3.7.

omhper (21889) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2008
UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Bottled, thanks ante! Cloudy pale golden, no head. Wonderful aroma of cobweb and barnyard. Sweeter than exoected, yet dry of course. nearly no carbonation. Medium bodied with a citric edge. Creamy malt together with stale grassy hops and barnyard. Very good, but I lack some complexity and acidity compared to the very best bottles I had from 3 Fonteinen.

GregClow (3027) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2008
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc, mabel & tupalev - courtesy of jerc & mabel. Hazy red-gold with no head and a still body. Aroma is funky and citric, with some cheesy notes. Thin body with very little carbonation. Flavour of lemon juice and tart apples, quite acidic but oddly refreshing, and a mellow funkiness in the finish. Nice stuff.

fonefan (40504) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 4, 2008
Bottle. Clear medium orange color with a small, frothy - fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is light adcidic - sour, moderate wood and oak, apricot - tropic fruits. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate acidic with a average duration. (A bit boring and quite one dimensional) Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. (070308)

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2008
From a 375mL Bottle. Generously shared by cquiroga. Slightly hazy, pale peach skin colored pour with a thin, wispy white head. Lightly sour, pale fruit aromas of pears, nectarine skins, strawberry, and pomegranite seeds. Amongst the fruitiness lurks a moderate lactic sourness with a touch of cheesy pedio funk. Medium light bodied, gently carbonated mouthfeel with a moderate acidity. Some brighter peach flavors than those found in the nose jump out right away, along with some mild apple cider and fresh pear. Perception of slight acetic qualities, especially on the front of the palate, but this adds a little zip and crispness to take the place of the lack of carbonation. Great combination of fresh fruit and aged sourness. Flavors of strawberry and pear skins linger in the finish with a mild cheesy funk. Thanks for sharing, Chris!
