On draft at IH WC location, pour was hazy golden yellow, ok head and no lacing. The aroma was freaking beautiful, tart and sour lemons, slight funk, spicing (coriander?), wheaty type elements. Flavor followed as expected, cellar/musty elements just making this so beautiful, surprised it was as sour as it was, but geez, what a great thing. Yeast, light fruits, and cobwebs in the finish just made this fantastic and very well done. Why, yes, ma’am, I think I know what I’m getting myself into, but I appreciate you checking in before I ordered it! Wonderful. Clean slightly acidic finish. YUM.

Hazy dark golden color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of wild yeast, vanilla, wood, some spices, citrus, and light malty sweetness. Taste of citrus, green apple, vanilla, wood, and a wild, tart finish.

ReggieDunlap (3052) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2011
West chester...draft...kicked the last keg! Pours an opaque yellow with a medium white head...very nice retention and lacing. Aroma has notes of oak, spice, sourness, and funk. Flavor is lemony with funk and leather. Mouthfeel is a bit flat (end of keg maybe) but the finish is citrusy, leathery, tart, and dry. Drinks a bit like a gueze.

Draft. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Light tart aroma with fruity, yeasty, and floral notes. The flavor has funky bretty notes, spicy floral notes, and some apricot and peachy fruity notes. Awesome.

Hazed oranage pour with off white head and lace. Huge aroma of corriander, clove, and a hinto brown sugar. Flavor of orange zest and corriander. A bit thin and fizzy but very nice.

On tap at Iron Hill, our fourth stop on the RBSG bus trip. Pours a clear gold with a touch of haze. Thin to medium sized white head. Gorgeous musk, light funk on the nose. Nice and crisp, light sourness. Crisp and lingering light acidity. Very nice stuff, and the favorite of everyone at our table.
