eduardovl (940) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml bottle served in a snifter glass. A: Pours an orange cloudy color forming a big solid and bubbled white head. Medium retention and many spoty lacings left in the glass S: Sour and fruity with some spicy notes. Passion fruit. Vinegar. Sweet grains. A bit woody and a little bit metallic too T: Very fruity and sour upfront. A little bit spiced. Again, strong notes of passion fruit, wood and vinegar. Bready and earthy yeasts. Mild hops bitterness in the very end M: Light body. Good carbonation. Sour and fruity aftertaste O: Very refreshing, easy drinking and tasteful beer. Just another BFM masterpiece [ BA Review @ 3/25/2013 ]

Rating #4000. Bottle 75cl, a cloudy golden beer with huge head and good lace work. Nose is on apricot with light tart touch. Aroma is on grapefruit, apricot, low lactic touch, lambic basis but more fruity and sweet. Fruity astringent finish, lemon zest, sourish.

SinH4 (250) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 3, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Nice hazy yellowish-orange color with big head. A bit of lemon, a bit of bread, a bit of funkiness in the aroma. Typical swiss malts as you also find them in beers by Storm&Anchor. Breadish-lemonish taste, light body, medium carbonation. Solid.

nuplastikk (4702) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Tap at Maxs. Unfiltered dull orange tan. Foamy, patchy, lacy head. Low carbonation, nice fruity sourness. Sour, juicy, lemon-tinged bubblegum notes. Pretty nice flavor, not unlike a Jolly Pumpkin at times. The mellow subdued carbonation isn’t really a bonus. Pretty nice beer, but not quite World Class.

Amazing beer with an incredibly fascinating barrel character, somewhat reminds me of some burgundy BA stuff I’ve had, really funky, nice spiciness, yogurty, good stuff.

11.2oz Swing Top Bottle - listed as 5% - Pour is hazy gold, with a firm, fine bubbled white head into this glass - it retains fairly well, with robust lacing present here. The nose is grain, peppery spice, with strong citrus notes here. Brett notes provide some orange rind, oak presence, and mild funk here. Yes. Please. The flavor profile is brett / pineapple, orange rind funk, it’s a touch sharp moving forward with light earthen oak, spicy notes, and a certain yeasty tart element that i find very appealing. I need more !

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2014
On tap at the Thirsty Monk (AVL). ASBC barrel version Hazy amber body with a markedly thick and durable head. Mildly funky and fruity aroma; moderately spicy. Very complex flavor. Medium-high tartness; mild bitterness; apricots; subtle effects of barrel aging. Funk makes it slightly challenging. Excellent soft carbonation.
