Sample at Kurtkeller 023: Firestone Walker-tastic 01 on 06/18/2016. Cloudy apricot color with a medium white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, oak, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of funky yeast, oak, peach and citrus, and doughy malt. The finish is mildly sour with a citrus and funky brett aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Reynolds314 (3258) - Connecticut, USA - APR 16, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Bytemesis, THANKS! Amber copper color with fizzy head that fades immediately. Aroma is heavy oak, vinous, bready malts, sour cherry, and some brett funk. Taste is moderate high tartness and slightly acetic heavy and oxidized but what can you really expect when you take 4 barrel aged beers and blend them. Overall very enjoyable i just wish it had more body to it.

Pour is transparent gold with a white head. Nose has a good bit of cheesy funk, gets sharp. Faint peach, strong brett and some stingy brett. Taste has a good bit of cheesy funk up front. Peach is light, brett is stingy, a touch acetic. Fuller body, well carbonated, creamy feel.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Murky apricot-colored pour with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is fruity and funky, bursting-at-the-seams with juicy apricots, cherries and a mild measure of lemon rind. Medium-bodied and super creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor is funky, fruity and tart. Tangy and bready, finish. Big-time thanks goes out to gatorguy92 for supplying this treat!
