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.

May have been one of my least liked beers ever. Had a dirty kinda of funk smell. Overly sour. Just not enjoyable for me. Sorry you paid $12.50 for it bro.

30 May 2015, tap at Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Festival. Pink yellow and a tad hazy. God this smells amazing! Tart with strong peat and some lemon juice. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Lemon juice and peat. Wow. Tart, peaty, fantastic!

A bona-fide gusher when served at cellar temperature. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange with a big but quickly receding head of foam. Very little lacing. It has some Brett in the smell but more so of an aroma of band aids. Light tartness with some noticeable funk, fruity, and then comes the band aid flavour that spoils it for me. Light bodied with medium carbonation. I wanted to love it, especially after the price that I paid for it, but I don’t even like it. It could use some work. Oh yeah, the peat works okay.

Drake’s 10k. Hazy light amber. Aroma is intensely of burnt rubber. Band-aid phenols are also dominant in the flavor. Layered with a bit of sourness. This for me was an utter train wreck, really disappointing.

Bandaid, smoke nose. Cloudy amber, medium head. Sour, overripe lemon . Medium body, harsh mouthfeel particularly in the back of the throat.

Bottle @ tasting. Hazy caramel with big head lacing. Really does angel like band aid- and a little smoked. I can see why they say peat. Don’t really like it in the flavor, though I like the a smell. Barbecued band aid.

Bottle shared by jackl at my 10K tasting. Hazy yellow, thin foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of strong meaty smoke, brett, funk. The taste is tart fruits, smoke, mesquite, papery notes. Thin bodied, no hint of booze, interesting. Odd beer, strangely intriguing.

Tasted during Nepenthia. Hazy orange c odor. Ring of white head. Big smoke, peat. Nice bright bretty citrusy aroma. It works well. Great big complex flavor, nice to sip on. Medium to bigger body. Lighter, kind of soft carbonation. Lightly slick bod, then more dry in the finish. Nice mild tart, light to moderate bitter. Lighter sweet. Very tasty, interesting stuff.
