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 shared at Brown’s. Thanks, Nick! April 2014 bottling. Pours orange yellow with a white head. Aroma is funk, acetic, citrus. Smells really nice. Tart and lemony with a touch of cherry skin, only a little cidery funk and plenty of carb.

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours clearish pale gold with almost no head. Aroma is really lovely geuze-like funk with big tropical fruit, melon, and stone fruit notes, along with some lemon. Taste is a pleasant balance of sour and sweet with lots of peach, melon, and lemon, and a big oaky tannic finish, although not overpowering. Drinks fairly light and crisp for the ABV. World-class American sour.

Forgetfu Tasting at ChrisOs. Hazy gold beer, small fluffy white head. Palate is airy, dry and crisp. Light savoury saltiness like a good Goze. Lemon acid turning bitter. Light dry finish. A bit too sharp to be that drinkable.

AdamChandler (3734) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2014

Scopey (9349) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle thanks to Mr L. Smith. It pours hazy gold with a thick white head. The nose is soft, doughy, barnyard, funk,cream cheese, wood and light smoke. The taste is crisp, tart, pretty acidic, sherbet, lemon, orange peel, straw, acid burn and light alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Crisp and tart, but rather acidic.

Leighton (14303) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle shared in London - picked up in VT. Pours unclear yellow with a thick, foamy white head. Pleasant aroma with lots of lemon, peach, some lemon squash. Light-medium sweet flavor with balanced tartness, more lemon, straw, faint apple, hints of salt and alcohol. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Nicely balanced to finish with citric lemon bite, mild warmth, pear, peach, slight bitter straw. Lovely stuff. Good depth, wonderful balance.
