COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the traditional gueuze beers of Belgium, BACKACRE matures for more than a year in oak barrels to develop a fruity, earthy, and refreshingly tart character. The careful blending of different barrels creates a sparkling golden ale with a crisp and complex nature akin to cider or dry champagne.

Bottle pour. Semi-hazy gold pour with a white head of foam. Aroma is funky and peachy. Also some tropical fruits. Funky fruity sweet taste. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. Overall, a really nice beer.

hazy lemon, thin small bubbled white head. Lotion and white grape nose, light sulfur and considerable hay brett esters. Tons of white grape and sugar at the front, some hay mid before light grain and playdoh in the sugary, fizzy finish. Reminiscent of peconic with more sweetness, less tannin.

Bottle thanks to my buddy Lewis and his wife. Pour is golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is funky, sweet, and lightly tart with light fruity hints. Flavor is apricot sweetness up.front with waves of light funk, light sweetness, and faint floral notes. Really delicate and well balanced. Great beer.

750 ml bottle thanks to Tom for the trade. Shared at Jeff’s. Pours light yellow with a small fizzy carbonation that quickly fades to a very small ring. Aroma is sour lemon sugar candy with musty wood and grass. Some light barnyard notes too. Taste is mostly sour lemons but there’s a really nice fruitiness too. I think it’s maybe apples and grapes. Perfect amount of light barnyard in the moderately tart, crisp, dry finish. Nice bubbly carbonation. Great stuff. Sours are definitely growing on me now and this was my favorite to date until I had an even better one later that day.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jason! Super hazy, pear & straw colored body with a thin, white head that fizzles away almost instantly. Aroma is nice & tart, full of sour lemon flesh; nice combo of slightly acidic & lacto sourness. There’s a faint spice I’m picking up that I can’t identify. A touch of wood & wet hay in the finish. Taste is also full of tartness up front... sour but not pickering, acidic but not enamel ripping. Notes of fresh lemon & sour citrus followed by some oak, hay, & straw in the finish. Super dry aftertaste, leaves a tingling tartness behind... Wow, very nice stuff! Excited to see what they come out with next.

Pours a clear gold with a thin white head...lively. aroma has nice light funk and whiye wine-like notes...slight oak...very subtle grassiness. Flavor is nice light white wine and funk with just the right amounts of sour and oakiness to go with light fruity notes of apple and stonefruits....very delicate and fabulous. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a nice dry white winey tart and dry finish. This is a fabulous and delicately complex beer.

Totally surprised by this beer, and enjoyed during an epic bottle share. Poured a vibrant golden color with a thick head. Funky aroma, wild yeast with lots of white wine notes. Sour taste very crisp, green apple, grapes, and even some citrus notes. Great tart balance, medium body with a dry finish. Could even have enjoyed it a bit drier too. Good carbonation, with an astringent finish. Can’t wait to land some more beers from these folks, excellent crafted blend.

Thanks to Jason for this backwoods sour! Pours light gold without much of a head. The smell is yeast, sour apples and some funk. The taste is green apples, grapes, must - it ends tart and sour fruity. Light body with effervescent carbonation.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 9, 2013
Der deutlich Saure Geruch täuscht bei diesem Bier, es startet vergleichsweise süß und mit sehr starker Karbonisierung. Auch im Mittelteil nur wenig sauer, etwas pappig. Nicht sonderlich. 7/8/8/8/9/8
