1L bottle @ Ken’s Walloping Wednesday - Softly hazed gold, creamy off white head. Nose held funked floral and sour lemon-like tones. Hints of yeasty black pepper emerge on further warming. Flavor was very nice with a well balanced mix of bretty funk and peppery lemon florals. Nicely complex for the light ABV. Light bodied, medium carbonation, peppery, sour fruity finish. Unique and tasty for sure. Thanks argo0.

***review from Jan 18, 2009***
Found at Khory’s in southish Henderson, NV.... I’m looking at the bill and the grand total was 201.16$...
Poured out a thin super bubbly white cap that lives on the rim with almost no lacing. The beer was a medium amber colour that was not quite clear. I say was because I dumped all the sludge in and now its kind of a reddish tinged apricot nectar looking thingy. The aroma is quite nice and fresh with sweet flowers, apricot, honey, light bread, light sour berry, weak spices. The taste is very very light and quite tangy with flowers, weak bitterness, light bready malts, pepper, a bit water and I find it gassy. Sounds like a pretty plain description but this does taste quite different and it is very yummy. Soft and fluffy to the mouth..wow, just got a mouth full of flowers. Finished tannic, flowery. Highly over priced but it sounded quite rare and the ingredient list definetly made it a must buy.

From a pricy big bottle purchase at Belmont Station--Poured a medium copper amber body with a mild white head that dissipated but left da ecent to low head. Honey nose with fruity watery mild complex lovin texture. I drank a few glasses and loved it! Go for it if you can afford it.

Dusty yellow-orange. Minty and spicy, herbal . . . barnyard? It’s a mix of a variety of things, but not much flavor comes with it.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Hazy pink grapefruit color with saliva like bubbles spreading around the wrung. The aroma is an f’in garden party. Juniper, boysenberry, rose hips, lemon grass and mint tea leaves. Pepper cleaves and kernels round it out with a spicy flair. Pepper comes out more in the flavor along with a souring grapefruit squeeze into an iced rose hip flavored tea. Effervescence mires activity while the tea leaves and lavender breezes interject more earthly traits. Glimpses of limeade are confounded with mixed, tart, tropical squeezes. Ruby red grapefruit taints rise with quips of lavender petals submerged under the surface. Strange stuff, with a peppery turn at the end, but a damn fun beer to try, all thanks to JPDIPSO.

I liked this one at Jimacks. Very different. Nose is very floral with some sour berries. Taste is very complex and screams food. Must have been brewed with the kitchen sink, a little bit of this and that. Not luck on the brewers part, I believe they aimed and hit the target. Bottle says violets, roses, and elderberries. Now I don’t get roses or violets specificly but some flowers for sure. Thanks beastie.

wedgie9 (1835) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Tasted sometime in mid-2011 from an odd-looking bottle at Lush West Town. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that leaves an even layer of lace after a quick recession. The nose is tart green grapes, a bit of earth, red fruit, and a nice dose of bread malt. The flavor is tart and sour green grapes with a hint of red fruits, bread malt, and the same earthy not that I detected on the nose. The body is medium with lively, mouth-filling carbonation, and a medium tart and tannic finish.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUN 8, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2008 Artebirra Pasturana 2008: nell’aroma il pepe predomina un po’ su tutto il resto, mentre nel sapore sbucano sambuco e miele, però non ho percepito molto di più; non mi pareva molto in forma, dovrei assaggiarla di nuovo per capire se è stata una sfiga mia o se è sempre così. Un poco una delusione. ______Riassaggiata alla spina all’Isola della Birra... tutta un’altra cosa. Aggiorno il voto

Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Cloudy light straw color with a broken head. Odd vinegary/brine aroma, light spicy, a hint of funk. Lightly briny taste, some citrus, grain. As with the Te, the brine character really is too much for me. I don’t know what makes this happen, but I’m finding I don’t like it so much.

Bottle courtesy of argo0. Cloudy, somewhat dull orange with an off-white/grayish head. Interesting nose of roses and grandma’s perfume. Tart fruitiness, medium sourness/funk along with notes of roses (and other flowers I can’t quite identify), light cherry and some wood character. Pretty dry. Medium to lighter bodied with moderate carbonation. An adventurous and fun brew, even though I didn’t quite love it - definitely worth a try.
