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.

bottle @ WTF OMG! POured a hazy gold. Nose was citrus fruit, lemon zest, peach, acetic acid, lemonade and brett. Flavor was awesome! Smooth medley of unripe fruits, sharp lactic acid and big funk. Best Bullfrog we opened that day!

Bottle: The aroma consists of tart lemons, a hint of peach, and a hint of pineapple. It pours a cloudy dull orange with a moderate white head. The flavor starts pineapple, peach, and a hint of tropical fruits. The finish has light-moderate lemon tartness. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

3fourths (7977) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Eggy, sulfuric, goaty and fatty first sniff. Looking deeper there’s an abundance of candy sugar and dusty gelatinous sugars, i.e. dirty/old gummi bears and fruit jello. Nose has a musk throughout, what I would otherwise call funky but with no positive connotation. Saccharine and overly sweet candies greet the mouth - candied tropical fruits, close to or resembling pineapple, mango, peach, but with a nutrisweet twang. Body is chewy, oily and especially syrupy throughout. Finishes with hints of aspirin, candied fruit and nutrisweet. Too sweet, too artificial. Does have a beautifully formed fine-bubbled white head on top of a hazed glowing gold body.

Big thanks to Kramer for sharing this at BCTC 2009. Pours hazy golden, capped with a moderate sized off white head. Very enticing aroma, with lemon zest, wild yeast, tropical fruit and some wheat. Flavor follows suit; nice bretty character with notes of lemon, horseblanket, wood, green apple, wheat, and a little acetic acid. This is probably my favorite bottled Bullfrog thus far.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle at BCTC 2009: Thanks Kramer: Hazy golden with a white film of head. Great bright bretty aroma- citric lemony, farmhouse rustic character and leather. Crisp body with a nice citric acidity in the flavor. Lemon rind, farmhouse funk, a touch of horse blanket- a nice acidic and bacteria ridden brett strain. Good stuff.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle shared by Kramer at BCTC. Another nice golden sour here. Very dry overall compared to the other bullfrogs I tasted. I didnt take notes and I don’t really care about the numbers, just wanted a record of trying this beer. Thanks Jason.

beastiefan2k (2408) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2009 One of the awesomely cool hookups from kramer @ BCTC’09. Color is completely cloudy, dark, murky golden. Aroma is some nail polish and light aceto-cherry sour. Flavor is much better with less of that assertive acetone and a nice lemon sourness with nice yeasty fruitiness behind it.7/3/8/3/15

Re-rate, this time shared by Levi, thanks. This was more of a grapefruit type of a sour. Got no nail polish this time. The aroma was full of funky grapefruit with light lemony bursts. Flavor was a bit flatter, less bright. Not really sour, just more of a funky-citrus character. Will keep this as the rating. 8/3/7/3/16.

egajdzis (5305) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2009
[BCTC 09] Hazy, dark golden color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemon skins, wild yeast, tropical fruit, citrus, vanilla, toast, and white grapes. Taste of pineapple, some citrus, white grapes, light apple, vanilla, oaky wood, and a sour finish. Pretty well balanced, with crisp acidity... Thanks Jason!
