wedgie9 (2588) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2014
From the 2012 Cellar Reserve
Tasted on 1/3/14 from a waxed and capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to adnielsen for being a great trustee. Pours hazy orange/golden with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, sticky lace. The nose is super sour and funky/earthy with a bunch of citrus and white wine vinegar, and a very unique tropical and citrus hops aroma. The flavor is almost exactly as the nose would have suggested, with a bit more caramel malt and vanilla barrel character, but the same sour citrus, white wine vinegar, and tropical fruit hops. The body is medium with some nice barrel tannin, lively, nearly sparkling, carbonation, and a long sour citrus and tropical hops finish. This beer is really great, the only beers close I’ve ever had were Cuvee des Champions and Le Terroir, but I find this to be a bit more balanced than both.

Zlotta (1585) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2016
Sampled from tap at ’Beertemple’ during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016 as ’L’Brett d’Or Dry Hop’. Slightly hazy, straw yellow with a white head. Sourish, very fruity and a little funky aroma of lemon, gooseberry, passion fruit, some oak and a bit of wheat. Very sour, fruity and a little funky taste of lemon, gooseberry, passion fruit, some rhubarb, wheat and some oak, followed by a medium long, rather tart and dry finish. Thin to medium body, very astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice, but again very simple.

mariuspoenari (1216) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2016
On tap at Beertemple. Clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Smells like gooseberries, white grapes, white wine and macerated fruit. The taste follows the same notes, lightly sour as well as hoppy bitter, with additional notes of tropical fruit and citrus. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a lightly sour and hoppy aftertaste,

Damico (3137) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2016
The sour pours clear golden champagne bubbly with a white head. The aroma brings some sweet apple juice with a nice tart almost cider presence. The flavor brings tart fresh apples from the sour yeast so nice on the palate with a dry but satiating ending. So nice!
