daknole (9042) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Rare gem shared by Diego at his tasting. Thanks man! Pours a gold color with a fluffy white head. Aroma has some dry tart acidic notes. Quite a bit of funky notes and I agree with CapnJazz that there are white wine notes. Flavor is not nearly as sour or acidic as I expected. I got some fruity flavors and some yeast and oaky flavors too. Very dry on the finish. Good, but I don’t feel its top in its class.

hopscotch (9038) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle… WTF OMG!… Murky, pear-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet is spicy, earthy and funky - notes of citrus, sharp cheese and a touch of mint. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor starts off very tart, but is cut nicely with toffee and fuzzy fruit sweetness. The finish is tart, then lightly sweet and caramely for the grand finale.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
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.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
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.

GT2 (8332) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
750mL thanks to MrChopin. Tepid, hazy peach pour with small carbonation. Small white ring of bubbles. Nose is grainy, wheat, sour mash wheat beer, yellow apples and Bosc pear. Taste is a tad cidery, blander, small acetic acid heat. Mild pineapple fruitiness. Pretty weak sauce overall.
