Cloudy yellowish pour with tart and fruit aromas. The brett definitely out shines the over flavors with a mild fruit finish. I was wanting a little more fruit flavors, but the brett overpowered.

12oz draft from Smithís billiards in Springfield, MA. This beer was amazing. The aroma is all funky barn and tart citrus. The taste is very complex with sour funk, citrus, grass, and a little bit of bread as it warms up. This is the most complex Alla-smashed that I have tried. Bottle review will be here soon.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer was enough to bring me out of hibernation, for the time being, at least. I enjoy wine, though Iím not a connoisseur, so this beer was wonderful to me. The appearance is innocent looking -- innocuous -- with a quickly dispersing head and a bright, inviting ruby-tan color. Itís kind of the color of tanned leather. The aroma has a lambic quality, with some cherry sourness and hints of the Syrah from the barrels used to age the beer. Very winey. The flavor is bright, but rich. Itís a little like a cross between a sauvingon blanc (bright, crisp, peary) or champagne and a merlot (oaky, rich, serious). There are still beer qualities, though, especially with the yeastiness that you donít find as much in wine. The palate is crisp. The beer dances across the tongue like a bright white wine or champagne. Thereís a little bit of pear and sauvingnon blanc in the palate, as well. Itís nicely balanced and lovely. Mmmmm.

Thanks to markgugs for this one.
Pours a medium dark copper, and really cloudy. Smell and taste is a lot like a Jolly Pumpkin Luciernaga (The Firefly). Sour fruits with a crisp finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A golden ale with moderate carbonation and no head retention. Soft aroma of fruity bubble gum with 50% more grape sticks! A soft cidery aroma was noticed by the end of the bottle. The flavor is clean and boozy with slightly woody red grape notes and a hint of malt. Smooth. Mild sweetness. Low bitterness. The brett provides a mild tangy quality, but no barnyard which is fine. Overall itís good, but slightly disappointing given the price tag. It could be a little more robust in aroma and flavor, but it isnít weak. It does nice things to my throat and tongue and tastes better as I near the end of the bottle. Iíd probably like it more, if I had another bottle.

Aroma of apricots and alcohol, smells great! Cloudy honey orange with little to no lacing or head. Very little carbonation. Tastes great, like citrus and apricot. you can really taste the bitter farmyardy affect of the brettanomyces. This is a really good beer!

In taster at Churchillís in San Marcos, CA. Looks golden with no head. Smells like a sour probably cause of the wine barrel aging. Tastes like a deep golden amber ale at first then the rush of palate covering sourness. Iím starting to enjoy sour beers and this beer definitely makes me enjoy them more. Overall 7.5 of 10.
