beernbourbon (1264) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle. Pour is nearly clear light pink with a small off-white head Aroma is full of berry notes, light floral notes, faintly tart, and light citrus. Flavor is true to nose with berry and floral notes dominating. Light lime comes through followed by a faint tart note. Very thin palate. Quite drinkable but maybe a little watered down for me.

jbeatty (948) - New York, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle, 04/14/2014. Pours reddish amber, thin white head burns away relatively quickly to a few specks of haze on the surface. Aroma is floral, passion fruit and other tropical notes, somewhat juicy, with earthy funk in the middle, lime and wheat, grains, in the finish. Taste is lightly floral with brett, moderate acidity through the middle, tart tropical notes, bitter lime rind prominent, but a touch medicinal, dry oaky finish. Light body, juicy, low carbonation. Lot of strong flavors going on here, but not well balanced between them all. Still, interesting enough.

SlovakSniper (2815) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Un verre rosé. Un anneau de mousse. Des parfums de zinfandel et de jus de fruits exotiques. Des saveurs faibles. De l’eau, des fruits dilués et une levure chancelante. Une impression en bouche qui est aqueuse. Où sont les bulles? Je crois qu’elles sont trop molles.. Une finale très (trop) courte sur des notes citronnées et florales. Un gros bof. Une dégustation à l’aveugle pourrait faire des ravages à cette bière.

Yummy sour. Bright and fresh. Not too sour or acidic. Floral notes are present more in the taste than the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by Me

From the bottle. Light red pour, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is funky and earthy. Taste is citrus forward and a little champagne and citrus notes. Good stuff.

Thanks Paul! Pinkish amber pour with champagne like head. Smell citrus and hibiscus. Tast follows with insane bubbly carbonation. Nice and dry. not quite on the level of Suarez and Brother, but a wonderful beer.

ajnepple (1676) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bomber shared last night. Funky aroma of brett, earth, lemons, limes and floral notes. Similar flavor, adding a citrus zest and touch of spice. Tart and tangy. Pretty refreshing.

Smell of brett and oak. Flavor was very mild fruit, floral and citrus. Very weak version of convivial Suarez.
