If you are looking at reviews and wondering if you should buy this. Do it. No matter what else your considering buying.That is if you like barrel beers. Soft vinegar aroma. Sharp barrel flavor on the back on the tongue. Funky delicious oak barrel. Soft wheat on the front of the tongue. Scrumptious breadyaftertaste. Wonddrful body.

fidelis83 (1932) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Cloudy gold pour with a tall, chunky off white head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is full of fruity and spicy yeast, a little bread, citrus and spicy hops, a little stone fruit and a little wet basement. Flavor is very citrusy up front with a little stone fruit, a short pause leads to light bready notes, lots of peppery and citrusy spice, floury grain, light funk, a hint of tartness and spicy and citrus hops to the finish. Surprisingly creamy and smooth entry, fairly heavy and blanketing carbonation and off dry and slightly acidic in the finish. Really good stuff.

wxman (1416) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a very slight haze, and a nice small bead white head. Sour wild yeast aroma. Sour taste dominates the sweet pale malt and yeasty flavors, but is well balanced and enjoyable. This is a very good sour!

Has coriander grapefruit aroma and a grapefruit flavor with a slight fizz that goes long with just a touch of happiness.

On tap at JL Beers, Grand Forks. Effervescent with a nice touch of sourness, kind of reminded me a of nice saison or farmhouse ale.

This was delicious. Nice Belgian candy aromas and flavors and that trademark sour tang from jolly pumpkin really good

Strykzone (4903) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pint at Global Brew O’Fallon. $10 for the beer. This had a nice frothy shaving cream foam. A sweet fruity and slightly funky aroma. The first sip is brett and it is only slightly funky, somehow. The brett is very clean here but finished plastic like. Some spiciness with nice fruit and sweetness and that coriander does nice things here. This is nice and interesting.

rbrazell (1621) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from CBX. Hazy deep golden pour with a large rocky white head that stick arounds. Funky yeast aroma, barnyard, wheat, lemons and grapefruit, spices, herbs and a hint of hops. Enter with a light pale malt sweetness fading in yeast funkiness, lemons and citrus, and then a big herbal spice drying out the back end. Layered palate depth with lively carbonation. Good stuff.

Habanero (2548) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear, pale amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma of funk, brett notes, grass, citrus notes, coriander and caramel. Slightly sweet flavor tat ends up dry, tart and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and lively carb. A very nice and crisp Belgian style ale.
