Huhzubendah (2266) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Shared by Thorpe429 alongside several other Allagash sour/wild ales. Thank you very much, Mike! The beer appears light golden colored with a thin, wispy head that leaves faint traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings some nice funk, along with earth, grass, hay, straw, outdoors, mineral water. Smells very enticing - nicely done. The flavor is clean and refreshing, with a subtle and elegant lactic presence followed by a mildly acetic finish. Not on par with the elite gueuzes from Belgium, but a very nice beer, and undoubtedly one of the better attempts from an American brewery. Light bodied and easy drinking. Overall, this was solid and enjoyable. I would have this again.

375ml bottle in a teku. Pours hazy golden with a small, white head. Aroma strong of funky/tart yeast and bacteria, some pale malts, and light oak notes. Flavor the same with an awesome funkiness/sour note. Average texture. A really good beer.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
375mL bottle, sent from Gregg657 (thanks a lot, Pete), pours a cloudy golden with tiny white head. Aroma is very subtle, with light lemon, citrus zest, and very light funk. Flavour is very authentically gueuze-like, with lots of barnyard funk, horse blanket, and lemon zest. Almost closer to an unblended lambic, with a wet wood / cardboard finish. Could use a little more liveliness on the tongue. Still, excellent American gueuze interpretation.

illidurit (2051) - Petaluma, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle courtesy of jtclockwork shared at the January 2014 tasting in Santa Cruz. Piney lemony aroma. Flavor has sour white grapefruit and tree sap, heavy citrus and firm acidity. Nice.

JustDrinkIt (241) - Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Slightly hazy orange pour with minimal head. Aroma of citrus peel, vinegar, and apricot. Flavor is sour apricot, woody citrus, and raspberry-like tartness.

Ontape (154) - Valley Village, California, USA - MAR 9, 2014
April 2013 bottle. Dirty and wild like a Coolship beer should be. Smells fruity and funky, pours clear and golden. Taste is complex with a touch of sour up front, but a long finish that’s more funk than tart. Good stuff.

deyholla (5974) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a white head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma has notes of cheese, light tart fruits a good amount of funk and some light grains. Flavor has the same cheese note with some light sour notes, a touch of acid and a bit of funkiness.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Hazy golden straw colored pour. Small white head that quickly fades. Not much lacing. Sour aroma of fruit, barnyard, and yeast. Taste is a tart fruit, almost a rhubarb. Lemon and orange. Spicy.

Bacterial (1205) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Bottle shared by LeninCat @ Armin’s. Light yellow pour with a slight white head. Funky and slight cheese nose. Taste is soft and simple, not sour at all. Slightly bitter in the finish. Edit - enjoying a full bottle of this without the pallet fatigue of a big tasting and bumping my scores up a bit. Very subtle sourness missed previously. Really nice.

DalzAle (1904) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Light lemon colored pour, no carbonation and an aroma of very funky citrus. Flavor is extremely funky lemon, dirty socks and lingering barnyard on the aftertaste.
