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 (10076) - 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!

rxeight (1855) - Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2015
375. Golden yellow. Moderately sour. Lots of wood, I’m told it’s French oak by my whiskey friend. Kinda like sucking on a cedar chip, mixed with some tart lemon.

PartyFowle (586) - - MAR 31, 2015
Draft. Pale gold hue, perfect clarity. Thin, frothy head of pure white. Nose: white vinegar, lemon zest, a hint of Brett. A swirl brings herbal notes and mint. Dry, earthy flavor. White vinegar at first, then semi-sweet pear. Not as intense as the aroma. Medium-light body, mild massaging bubbles. A little tongue-numbing. Acidity is moderate-- there’s just enough fruity sweetness to balance. A solid sour, but there’s nothing too special about it.

MadIndian (2586) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle from SJ. This is a nice representation of of the style with bold notes of hop, citrus , apple, vanilla, wood and pineapple. Strong acid and sour finish.
