4oz on tap at Libertys, for $4. Hazy red orange color. Ring of off-white khaki head. Decent but loose ropes of lace. Moderate sour tart taste, light to moderate bitter, light sweet. Nice taste to this. Bartender tells me it’s a biere de garde, but it’s much less spicy and soft than any biere de garde I’ve ever had. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Wood, dark fruit, light spice, oak, mild lemon citric in the aroma. Pretty nice, tasty, balanced, enjoyable stuff to sip on.

Batch 5. Pulled straight from the fridge and it STILL gushed like crazy. Huge unshrinking head of foam in my glass. A small amount of liquid on the bottom...cloudy orange. Intensely sour bitterness on the nose with a Brett like aroma. Strong bitter flavour with a fruity and light vinegar tartness, hint of horse blanket. Pouring in the rest of the bottle, I find a mild sweet note or 2. Mouthfeel suffers some from the over carbonation. Interesting brew but not one I’d likely visit again.

Bottle. Pours a super cloudy amber. Aroma of some funk and tart, some berry notes in there as well. Taste is tart with some fruit. Almost no carbonation.

JStax (3379) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Draft pour. Pours a hazed copper with a white head of foam. The aroma is musty, earthy, funky. Taste is floral and just a touch tart. Light body. Moderate carbonation.

monk191 (1199) - California, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Average for a cuvee. Pours a beautiful bright orange-red color with a white head. Smells of blackberries, molasses and a bit of tart. Taste is very tart, crisp, with strawberry rhubarb pie and spiciness in the finish. Had on tap at the Trappist.

dnstone (2301) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Floral, lactic-tart aroma. Nice glowing hazed copper-golden-orange with soft off-white head. Lightly tart lemony with a slight musty edge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

r464 (1964) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Cloudy and amber brown like an apple cider with zero head. Sour, musty, tart. Apple and citrus, malt and earthiness. Slight hops in the finish.

Deep gold, hazy, thin white head. Aroma is very sour with over-ripe strawberry and pear, earthy, musty spice. Flavor: dry, biscuity malt, earthy leather, spiced apples, ginger, pear, cidery notes, minerals, moderately sour (less than in aroma). Very low carb.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 19.06.2013, 0,75l bottle shared with Palme @ The Ginger Man NY:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, lots of sour red currants (kind of like I remembered my grandmother’s home made red currants juice), broth, grass, vinegar, heather. Taste is slightly sour grassy, red currants, grass, berry skin, minerals, sorrel, heather. Dry mouthfeel. Never heard of the brewery before, and had absolutely no expectations at all, despite good ratings. This was actually really nice, and being this old, I really wouldn’t mind more of this.

Grabbed this off shelf at Murrays Cheese. Pours a hideous murky swamp water color. Nose is tart and of fruits. Tastes tart of cherries, floral hops, woody, and ginger. Funky and easy drinking.
