Bottle shared by Jeff, thanks! Pours a cloudy golden peach with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sour red fruits with a backing leafiness and a bit of barrel. Flavor is more of a crisp sour red fruit with sweet barrel and a light funkiness.

Bacterial (1729) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle shared by me at Steazy’s - thanks! Slightly hazy Amber pour with a white head. Tart citrus nose. Really nice taste, complex and fun. Sour lots of wood character.

Orange with small white. Aroma is somewhat sweet, a bit of tart citrus. Not great, over sweet, sour with no real funk.

Darkish orange with a good pale head. Aroma is citrus peel, sour peach, nail polish, apple cider vinegar. Medium bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel, tart and fruity on the palate. Taste is sour peach, apricot, citrus peel.

Bottle shared by James. Thanks man. The beer is a hazy, murky, orange yellow hue with a soft white head. Incredibly profound aroma. Oranges, oak, vanilla, booze. The various barrels meld wonderfully, offering a sweet and sour blend I associate with Cascade. Delicious flavor. So much going on. Luscious and rich, coating the palate. Alcohol presence is there, but I wouldn’t have guessed nearly 12%. Yikes. Another unique and tasty wild ale from Cascade.

750 ml bottle shared by jimmietmac, many thanks! Pours a hazy dark golden light orange color with a fading white head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is a bright funky sour with lemon and orange citrus tang. Flavor is a mouth puckering sour that is dry and aggressive. Vanilla, citrus, bourbon and vinegar. Sour and delicious.

I believe this was shared by Brad. It is in the Flanders sour brown style. Pungent aroma. Sour flavor with balsamic vinegar, and earth, as well as some sweetness.
