COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that will make you rethink your definition of beer. It doesn’t taste like any beer you’ve ever had, yet it doesn’t taste like anything else either. Pushing the limits of brewing is what makes this job so much fun. Malted barley, wild yeast, hand picked Muscat Grapes, and French oak wine barrels are just a few of the things that went into crafting this beer. Breathe deep, take a long sip, and enjoy the creation in your hand.

caesar (4713) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
Bottled @ The Hague Tasting, small sample. Horseblanket, tart, hint of strawberry. Lactic acid. Quite nice sour ale, but I didnt expect it to be this high on average rating. Nicely balanced, but lacks a bit complexity.

MrHangover (2140) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of JulienHuxely. Pours a clear headless golden beer with slight carbonation going on in the glass. Aroma is light sour, bretty, funky and has some fresh oak influences in there as well. Flavor is light sour, woody and fruity. Light red fruits detected as well as some vineous characters. Great drinkability and refreshing, yet not all too impressive.

Lukaduke (1736) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a deep golden color with a finger of gaseous bubbles that fade quickly. The nose is bright with lemon, vinous muscat grape, musky barrel, vinegar and a touch of floral roundness. The palate follows with some big floral oak roundness that is cut with lemon, grapefruit some honey maltiness and traces of vinegar and barnyard funk.
