CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 9, 2011
On tap at Frisco Grille (Columbia, MD): Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with a thin ring of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet berry nose with some hay and barnyard funk. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with a touch of lightly sweet caramel and biscuity malt balanced with some mild earthy bittering hops before a drier semi-tart funky finish. Good, complex brett profile throughout.

Sampled on tap at Maxís in Baltimore. Pours a transparent, bright orange with zero head. Nose is fruity, a little tart, grapefruit, oranges, herbs, a little apple cider. Flavor is cidery, tart, sweet, lightly sour, a little candy sugar. Full bodied, sweet, sour finish.

radagast83 (6795) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Draft at Rustico, wish I could have had the New Belgium version next to it, but alas the distro networks arenít quite there yet for VA. Poured a dark golden color, no real head to note. Aroma was a bit sour berries with some mild floral notes. Flavor was tart berries with a huge floral component. The beer was certainly not as sour as I was expecting, but enjoyable none-the-less.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2011
In short: A slightly funky and not-so-sour Sour/Wild flowery golden ale. Lovely
How: Tap at Extreme Beer Fest 2011
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose has a bit of funk, dust and something musky/wood-ish. The beer has a big body full of grainy cereals with taste dried fruits, dry flowers, tannins, acidity, very mild sourness. One of the too many beers I had on that day. Itís not a precise description but you can bullshit people into thinking that if you wanted you could add more to a beer description by ending a rating with five periodsÖ..

egajdzis (5904) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2011 [RBSG 11] Lightly hazy, orange amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, wood, earth, berries, grass, and some citrus. Taste of honey sweetness, vanilla, wood, berries, and a wild, tart finish.

AirForceHops (5783) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 24, 2011
375 ml corked bottle got from the brewery on its release. Hazy orange color with huge thick head. Highly carbonated. Excellent lace all the way down. Iím giving it a 4 on appearance. Mildly tart Belgian aroma, with berry, floral notes, and Brett. Pleasant on the nose. Bretty and somewhat tart flavor with Belgian yeast, light fruits, lemon/citrus, flowers, and mild funk. Not REAL sour or tart, the berries give it enough sweetness to balance it out. It does get more sour as it warms. Overall pretty good.

Hazed orange pour with off white head and lace. Sour fruitiness and bread aroma. Sour fruit, bread, abv, and Belgian yeast. A bit thin and watery but very nice.
