mathieuc (1166) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 Bottle from AlexFields I think, thanks a lot sir! Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a really small white head that leave some lacing. Aroma is lactic, wild (funky), coming quite close to a gueuze I think. Taste is dry and sour, quenching. Flavors are lemon, wet hay and again lemon. Refreshing and light, really well made!

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn 375ml ($9): Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is vinegar, wood, wine, funk, and general tartness. Taste is tart and sour, prominently, but not excessively so. Woodiness is also very apparent. A little bit of sweetness makes its way in as well. Mild tart aftertaste. Way too easy to chug this expensive bottle in but a few sips, especially on a brutally hot day like today.

writerljberg (649) - Oregon, USA - JUN 27, 2013
On tap at Belmont Station. A: Cloudy dull yellow with a thin ring of head. Leaves some lacing on the glass. N: Dense biscuit with a subtle sugar. Lemon zest and some of the oak. Decent. T: Malty and sour combination. Lighter bitterness to round it out. M: Lighter body with decent carbonation. O: Don’t have much to say about this, unfortunately. A nice beer, but it doesn’t blow me away.

Tart drinker smooth from aging. Would be good with spicy food. Would recommend as a fine sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (3005) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with a small off-white head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is yeast, lemon, hay, barnyard, vinous. Flavor is medium tart with a dry finish and some zesty citric bitterness. A bit woody/tannic as well. Medium body, low carbonation. Interesting, but a little harsh.

jbeatty (1019) - New York, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle, 06/23/2013. Pours hazy burnt orange with monstrous rocky head, maze of lacing left behind as it dies down. Aroma is a cloud of brett, citrus and tropical notes, wheat, touch of funk. Taste is mildly tart tangerine and tropical character, bright funk, straw malts, bitter finish. Medium body, easy drinking. Delicious, wish I had bought more.
