Bottle shared by MrChopin: pours a clear deep golden bronze with a thin ring of white head. Has a lightly tart fruity and funky nose with some dark caramel sweetness. Starts with good fullness and mild sweetness with nice balance of tartness and cherries before a drier puckering finish.

The aroma of tangy iced tea almost sour mix. It pours clear syrup amber in color like peach syrup in color with no head. The flavor is tangy and tart with a medium smooth body and dry ending.

Served in a tulip. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a hazy golden color with a good white head and a touch of lacing. Pretty good retention and a slight bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward a bit of funky hay plus some lemony citrus. Somewhat acidic. The flavor doesn’t quite hit these high notes, but offers a good amount of lemon, citrus, tart fruits, and a bit of funk. Feel is light with some prickly carbonation and a mildly-acidic finish. Drinkability is pretty damn good. I liked it.

750ml Thanks to Douglas88 for sharing. Pours out a golden straw color topped with a white head. Aroma was of Brett, funk, green apple, light sweetness, and some floral notes. Taste is much as the aroma with a nice Brett, crisp fruit, some zest, and a little sweetness on the end.

Pale hazy yellow, slight head, Richmond 13th. Aroma and flavor matched, with some faint grainy note, some light fruits and lots of horsey and sour notes. Quite nice. The funk comes through a lot more after it has warmed a touch.
