POurs a murky deep yellow/orange. Nose is good amount of funk, sour vinegar. Flavor is extremely sour. We had this at a sour tasting and this was the 2nd most sour/tart beer of the night next to Trinity Old Growth. Excellent blend. Loads of funk, earth, yeast, lactic and pedio sourness. Treat!

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle. SB&WF. Beautiful pale orange colour with fluffy white head. Citrusy sorbet tart and wood in aroma. Earthy flavour with light gastric juice along with gentle acidity but still loaded with funkiness. Really nice mouthfeel with fluffy, porous feeling from the gentle natural carbonation. Bit bitter in the end.

daknole (9114) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Orangish pour. White head. Lots of cheese and wood in the nose with some fruit and tons of sour funk. Flavor is sour, lemony, cheesy and a bit of sweetness mixed in. Nice brew. Glad to try this one for sure.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2009
(75cl bottle, thanks CaptainCougar) large white head that mostly dissipates, atop hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, barnyard/funk, some lime/lemon, dirty sock. Taste is medium sweet, barnyard, cheese/funk. Effervescent light-medium body, light acidity.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Nose is most reminiscent of Hanssens with lots of cheesy, funk. The flavor shows Hanssens funk, Drie Founteinen citrus rind and Boon’s sugar water. Spritzy, thin body.
