COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sunny gold in complexion with a vinous, psychedelic aroma bursting with wildness. Bone dry with a champagne-like effervescent and volatile acidity. Additional aging in oak barrels develops an even more complex palate.

Deep golden pour. The nose is incredible. Funky spicy nose. Tart barnyard and sour fruit. A little bit of cheesiness and a kiss of soft bretty pineapple flavour. Long lingering fruitiness. The flavour is less tart than the aroma suggests, but it has lots of complexity. Rich, fruity and funky. Really delicious brew. Bright and fresh.

750ml bottle shared courtesy of Ryan. Poured a medium and lightly hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of funkiness, woodiness, grapes, and berries. Thinner tastes of the same. Lighter funkiness and on the sweeter side.

On draft at the GL. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a medium sized white head. Aroma of funk, lemon zest, honey and tart fruit. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

Pours a golden color with a thin white head. Has a sour grape smell to it. Taste is slightly sour with a little bit of a sweet berry taste. Not what i expected from the smell.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 3, 2010
750 ml bottle; thanks to goryshkewych for the trade; pours cloudy light orange with faint white head; almost flat but there was a huge pop on the cork; apricots, white grapes and nice acidic level overall; light, effervescent and some cream and vanilla; a little oaky flavors from the barrel with a soft, fluffy tartness; quite nice, but not quite up to the Oude Tart in a side by side

Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting - great beer. LActic and acetic, though not quite puckering. Caramelized banana sweetness. The balance between sweet and sour could be a bit better, but Iím starting to appreciate these sour ales more and more.

Had this 5/7/10 on-tap at Bullfrog (Jaspers release day). A-Body is a uniformly translucent dark, slightly dingy golden yellow hue. Served with only a thin white fizzy collar-but good retention of the collar. S-Nose offers lots of lemon and funkiness as well as hints of vinegar and acidic tartness. Nose is quite Gueze-like. T- Moderate presence of vinegar upfront as well as tart lemon and a light tart acidic sourness. Finish is very good as it is a balance of vinegar, bready yeast, and acidic tartness. A slight sweet bready yeast lingers on. P- Soft carbonation and a light to medium weight body. O- This is a very good beer. Pretty much Gueze-like. Sour, but not incredibly sour, tasteful, and balanced. My favorite thing about this brew is the slight sweet breadiness that lingers beneath all the initial flavors. Wonderful opportunity to have this on-tap! Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 05-10-2010 21:24:58

Bottle at Fantasy Tasting. Cloudy yellow orange with ring. Barn hay tart wax aroma. Funky horse barn peach with dry finish. Flavors seem to have separated. Slightly watery. Ok.
