On tap at Ellyn’s Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL., and dispensed to a fluted sampler showing a hazed but bright, golden color, with a frothy white layer, and spidery cling to the lacing. The nose was subtle, but pleasant funk & spice, pear, and light citrus. Light bodied, with nice effervescence, the taste offered some lemony tartness, finishing dryness, and boozy warmth. Very refined, and flavorful!

On tap. Dark yellow pour. Like I’m dehydrated. Aroma is bready and tart. Has a Granny Smith apple juice taste. Taste is Brett lemon pepper sour apples. Realt surprised thought this would be more Belgian. This is mild sour and Brett.

@ Green’s Discount Beverage / Columbia SC --- Appealing clear bourbon color with a head that quickly drops to the rim, no lace. Taste is sour ale that draws on dry red wine in the palate for a unique taste. Sour continues on through a lingering finish. This is not your typical brew - more like a barleywine than a Belgian. Recommended.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2014 Corked bottle from 2012. Amber orange color white head. Tart musty nose. The sour musty flavor is right up front with some citrus and alcohol. Flavor is musty and horse blanket. This is a not a beer to be swiftly drunk.

Pours dark amber with little head. Smells of red wine, funk, cherry and fruit. Taste is tart and sour with notes of red wine, and fruit. Very dry and complex. Medium body, light carbonation. Pairs amazing with Thai food.
