Vintage 2009, draught at Akkurat. Pours cloudy golden. Strong sour aroma with notes of apple cider and grapes. Vinous taste with grassy notes and strong acidity. Funky, sour and quite frankly pretty damn awesome.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Armsby Abbey. Before Zwanze 2014. Aromas of musty basement, lactic acids, light grass clippings and moldy straw.
The flavor to,me is just like it smells. Very tart and lactic with a drying palate. Thankfully no vinegar. Nice mild puckering. The best thing I can say about this brew is it was real drinkable for me and I’m not a sour head by any means. This is balanced enough that I drank 8 oz. which is an enormous accomplishment. No really it is, pretty amazing.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 Bottled September 2011. Gold-orange hazy color with small head. Funky, tart aroma. It has the special something in it. Great dry, complex, sourly taste, with a little wood in it. Medium carbonation, amazing for an evening in the good weather.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Do I have to say something... Ryan you suck!
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange color with a slim one finger white foamy head that dissipated quickly. Lacing, what lacing...none whatsoever.
The smell, whoah, what the flying fuck, is this supposed to smell like this? Pure putrid foul smelling vinous shit.
The taste was exactly the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with no sessionability whatsoever, wow - people actually like this shit.
Overall, all I have to say is: to the brewer - how many times did your parents drop you on your head that you thought you had to come up with this shit? Keep your shit out of Alaska!

What else is there to say about this absolutely fantastic brew that sadly doesn’t come into my life more often though I really wish it would because I would go to the store and purchase it with the money that I have in my wallet and now I am done with this run-on-sentence. FANTASTIC GUEZE!!!!

Paille, feuilles mortes et des veines chlorophyllées. Elle est quand même assez acétique, du bon côté de la limite avec une bonne présence citrique et verdoyante.
