Bottle... This beer rocks! Pours lightly hazed and ros with a brief white head. The bouquet is funky, oaken and fruity. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and buzzing carbonation. The flavor is fruity, sour, funky and woody with a tart, tongue-numbing finish. Big THANKS to landhoney for sharing this world-class brew with the South Florida Crew!

birdmachine (213) - San Jose / San Luis Obispo, California, USA - DEC 19, 2014
375ml bottle, reviewed from notes (3/2014 and 8/2014). Aroma is candied tropical fruit, sweet tarts, and light strawberry and plum skins with some funky musty oak. The beer pours glowing pink/orange/grapefruit color wit spotty carbonation that leaves a small ring around the glass. Taste has more funk than the aroma suggests. Tropical fruit comes through with deeper layers of plum skins, blueberry tannins, white grape, musty oak, light dough character. Acid level is medium, with medium-light body and medium carbonation. After taste is oak tannin, light fruit jam, plum skins. Overall a really nice balanced fruited sour that stays away from being too acidic. Lovely, age really allowed some of the fruit to come forward while developing more funk.

bursprak (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Pour is flat pinkish no signs of a head whatsoever. Nose has tart plums, peach and some funk. Taste is not as tart as expected, loads of plums, banana and some lemon zest. Nice!

JBPortland (930) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 29, 2014
375ml bottle thanks to adnielsen! Pours beautiful bright pink red with some bubbles but no real head. Nose is tart musty old oak, basement, plum, blueberry, touch of horsehair. Taste is very low carbonated, low tartness, nice juicy dusty plum, grape, and blueberry, some light attic funk, damp wood, touch of bretty hay, soggy grain. Finish is tart dry oak funk, occasionaly semi-sweet plum notes, touches of wet hay and barn. With proper carboation this could be magnificent. Still enjoyable.

DrewFace (889) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a pinkish orange color with no head, light fizzing. Aroma is funky, barnyardy, lightly tart and fruity, citrusy - grapefruit, no notable dark fruits. Big tartness up front and the brett towards the finish. Fruity notes, plums present, apple like flavor, and grapes. Pretty tasty overall. Favorite of the L鍛retts.

Interesting but a bit odd. Plums and vinous notes accent the tart but it finishes with grape skins, toothpaste, and sulfur. Not all that bad considering the weirdness.
