12 oz on tap at Monks Cafe. Opaque orange-brown with a lasting ring and islets of creamy bubbles. Big nose of cherry vinegar and smoky earthy char. Taste the same excellent mix, with the smoke becoming less noticeable as I get further into the glass, leaving only a satifyingly sweet-sour smoke and toasted oak aftertaste. I found nary a hint of whiskey (just a nice touch of the barrel) and the abv is well-hidden as well. Medium body has medium-high but smooth carbonation and a nice sour-acidic tingle.

A bizarre concept for a beer. I was skeptical... it could have easily been a trainwreck, but it was actually great. There is a fairly subtle smoke flavor and aroma from the peated malt and the scotch barrels. In the forefront is there is mainly sour and funk flavors. All 3 beers have strong flavors, and they combine very well without drowning each other out. Hard to believe this isn’t Belgian. A very impressive and innovative beer.

Pours a rich raw sienna color with a finger of eggshell foam. I believe it takes a rare breed of drinkers to enjoy a smoked peat sour beer... but I believe I am a direct descendant of this breed. There is something about the contrasted balance of smokey, campfire notes that mingle with sour cider, wood roasted pear and touches of bourbon, earthy leather, doughy malt backbone... it just intrigues my palate and pairs amazing with rich simple foods such as the salmon avocado sushi I ate with this. Im quite in love with the crazy umami character that happens in this beer and it was only heightened when I included a touch of ohsawa nama shoyu sauce DAMN !

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Nice aroma of brett, peat and light fruit. Flavor begins with nice clean brett sourness and finishes with a great peat smokiness. Smooth, tart finish. Delicious beer.

Penominal phrnominal beer. Barnyard funk meets scotch. Huge complexity, easy going.

Draft at Blue monk. Hazy dark orange pour with a white thin head. Nose is tart and peaty. Taste is a tart fruit skin front into a smokey peat finish. Great balance and not overwhelming.

Draft at Lil Indies. Unclear deep orange pour with a small white head. Aroma of smoky peat, caramel maltiness, sourdough, yeast funk, Brett and oak wood. Flavor presents all the above mentioned flavor blended perfectly in a very unique beer, Pretty damn tasty.

peat daydream - murky tangerine, wispy white head laces everywhere. Peaty leather rules the nose, light tangerine citrus. Flavor way brighter, stable and tangerine all over, bitingly bitter, the peat hiding until the drying, lightly burning finish. Thin but very fine carbonation accents sourness, peat surviving. Exceptionally executed.

Un amalgame vraiment intéressant de boucane intense et d’acide lactique. Les brett se manifestent aussi, survoltant.
