Light apricot colored pour, fluffy white head. Great beer. Was actually cleaner and purer than St Lam! Perfect carbonation, nice sourness, light funky grape flavors, stone fruit. Great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle busted out by Douglas. Thanks!
A: Beautiful cherry cola with a thin white head.
N: Cherry, wine grape, oak, grapefruit rind, cranberry, lemon zest, vinegar and acetone. Leather and tobacco. Similar enough to Rodenbach GC.
T: Goodly sour, with some sweetness.
M: Crisp texture, a little oily. Medium light body.
O: This is a tasty beer that was very much enjoyed by the tasters involved. However, I’m guessing the 350 bottle count might push this over the edge to some people; I like it but Rodenbach is better.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer can do a wheelie on a unicycle!... Hazy mango-colored pour with no lasting head. The aroma is a collection of grapes, yeast, oak and mild lactic acidity. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor is bready, tart and fruity - apricot - flanked by a light, crusty bitterness. Tangy, tongue-numbing finish. Muchos kudos to landhoney for popping the top on this world class treat!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one poured a pinkish light orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma was of wet grass, light cheese, sand, grape skin, lemon zest, and Brett. Flavor was again a crazy melange of soft funk character with subdued avidity, grapey, bit not extremely evident, and perfected carbonation and mouthfeel.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Grrrz release. Pours a cloudy pinkish orange with a slight fluffy white head. The aroma is slight barnyard, slight fruit sweetness, sour aroma. Taste is slightly tart but not overly sour, slightly dry finish. Cleans up very nicely. The finish is what sets this beer apart.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has a nice acidity to it with some light barnyard funk and tropical fruit. Light herbal funk note with moderate fruit character. Pours a cloudy, gold red with a small white head that lingers on the edges. Small lacing with faint legs. Flavor had a nice light acidity with a good fruitiness. An interesting funkiness with light barnyard funk. Some tannins in the finish. Mouthfeel is light bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a really nice American wild ale with some nice fruit character. Great aroma, but flavor is not quite as nice.
