lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Light copper, medium head, and high lacing. Some corny aroma. Highly carbed with a sour green apple flavor, bitter aftertaste. Dry winy flavor. This tastes a lot like that Duchess sour ale. Not as bad as it could be.

bhensonb (12587) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bomber from ericandersnavy. Thanks for another rare (to me anyway) brew! Pours a hazy apricot with a decent off-white head. Mild aromas of funk and citrus. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is mildly sweet malt, yeast spice, and light funk. Seems maltier than most biere de garde I can recall, but it drinks extremely well.
