TheAlum (6926) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a nice glowing amber orange hue, gentle haziness, frothy whitish head stays as a mellow filmy layer, decent lacing and stick around. Aromas are a bit tart, spicy with gentle citrus, persimmon, sweeter fruit and a bit of funk, tartness. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a bit tart with persimmon, carmelized malts, a touch of fruity sweetness, faint brown sugar, some bread, spiciness. Mellow tartness, gentle yeastiness as we turn the corner. Backend a bit more dry and bitter, touch yeasty, funky. Some tartness, a bit of earthy bitterness and warmth. Almost a cinnamon jab at times back here. Solid.

erickok (5271) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2014
Lemony, citric hops yet with a good Brett funk. Belgian base yeast I thought at first, bit quite clearly fermented. Nice classic basic bitterness gives a modern appeal. (On tap at Flix Brewhouse)

Sampled at 10/12/2012 at GABF. This sour/wild ale pours a light gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, yeasty with some tartness. A medium bodied wild/sour ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, slightly tart. The hops are herbal. Mild to no carbonation. A touch yeasty and tart. Interesting beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is tart.

mmmbeer (1389) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Tulip glass at the joint- served a tan/coppper color, almost like apple juice, no head and sat very still in the glass. Aroma of yeast, granny smith apples, brett, and a note of funk. Hits the mouth with a very light body, sour and tartness dominate from start to finish but at least it isn’t overpowering, clean tart apple finish. Intriguing, but kind of one dimensional.
