Bottle... Pours clear and golden with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma features citric notes, stone fruits and yeastiness. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is sour, fruity and a hint bready. Crisp, tart, citric finish. Very nice. Bottle shared by landhoney!

Bottle in trade, thanks to little bro for giving ok to drink. Pours an orange color, white head. Aroma is tart, sour, fruity, yum. Taste is lite, not too sour, thought would be stronger/more sour. It is more fruity than sour. Real easy drinker. Could drink this in my pool all day. Thanks mike! And this guy below me? What is he talking about? DrewFace, thoughts?

[ Bottle, b2 ][ ½ of 37.5cl ][ Tasting ][ Trade ][ Tulip ][ 9.27.14 ]
Translucent gold-amber, thin puffy white head fizzes, laces well, small but lasting. Moderately bright nose, light peach dominated by the yeast, a heavy brett nose, dusty. Similarly bright nose, more peach, considerable leathery brett, moderate acid and surprisingly high oaky bitterness through the mid, lightly vegetal even. Moderate body finishes slick, undercarbonated, coating the tongue and lightly oppressive.

b3shine (5961) - Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle to snifter (2014 vintage shared with the Mrs; thanks newcigarz). Looks good; a hazy fuller orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; tart and funky with notes of oak and citrus with a vinous body in the background. Tastes like it smells with a solid medium-bodied mouthfeel. Good beer.
