bottle, yes this one is great. So great a fly flew in and committed suicide cause it was just so damn delicious. Great light saison tartness, almost a forest and main body character. Delicious.

DSG (8367) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 23, 2015
[2/17/15] Draught at Firestone Walker in Paso Robles. Clear yellow. Lovely aroma, funky, citric, earthy, with barnyard and an oaky note. Dry flavor, slightly sourish, with mild barnyard and big fruitiness. Quite light-bodied. Very nice.

boFNjackson (4189) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Pours hazy, golden/yellow with a retaining white head. Nose had funky, spicy yeast characters with faint wine barrel. Mild vinious notes that allowed the funk and mild sourness shine. Hints of wood, earthy spicing and grassiness. Soft, easy finish.

mcberko (9224) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2015
On tap at Elizabeth Station, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of brett, along with oak and Belgian yeast. Flavour is very funky, with spicy dry yeast, oak barrels, and finishing dry and biscuity. Dry, medium funky, and lightly spicy on the finish. Good stuff, though not as complex as classic Firestone Walker beers.

Marheb (3058) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Une base de saison rustique et sauvage avec une veine grasse et délicieusement brettée. Des agrumes enrobées d’un film carambolesque et une touche délicate lactique. Buvabilité adorable.

MadIndian (2586) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2015
On draft at Blue Monkey. Nice notes of bright fruit, wood, bread and some vino. It was okay. Body was a tad thin.
