Pours a cloudy straw color, with some floaties. Aromas are tart, lambic style with a touch of funk. Moldy basement aromas as well. The sump pump is running. Taste is a dry funk with a sour bite that seems just right. Right on! This is phenomenal. An excellent cider. More carbonation would make this world class.

Thanks radarsock for sharing this. Enjoyed in a snifter.

A - Straw color. Pretty intense haze. Light carbonation

S - Alright smell. Up front apple scent, candy and burnt sugar. Quite a Pheno smell going on.

T - Yeah...funky old cheese? Goat cheese? apples, bananas. Slight cardboard. Still not bad. Loving the tart mouth drying finish

M - 35% carbonation. Light body. dry finish

O - Itís alright. Not bad. Quite pleasant but not bad.

Has a clear a urine-bayed presentation and no visible head. Smells sour and bittersweet with nothing really coming to mid. Tastes of expensive applesauce, blue cheese, goat milk, white wine dregs, mushrooms and sunflower stems. This beer is definitely better than people have been writing about it lately. Funkier than any other cider Iíve ever consumed. Quite the experience.

bottle thanks Kerry. Pours murky orange no head. Funky sheep wool aroma. Taste like bandaids covers in blue cheese stuffed with apples and lemons

djd07 (3896) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear yellow gold with no head. The aroma is cheese and funk. Thin mouthfeel with a tart and bandaid flavor. Not much going on with this one.

reggiedunlop (3219) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pours a hazy pale yellow with very little thin white head. Aroma is funky and leathery...mild tartness and acidic citrus...super faint sulfur but not bad. Flavor has great barnyard funkiness...some soury acidic lemon. Mouthfeel is very light and the finish lingers with nice mild funkiness.

Guerde (1184) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 7, 2012
(bottle) Pours out a semi-hazed light yellow color with pretty lively carbonation. Aroma is predominately funky green apple, faintly candy-like with a passing resemblance to green apple jolly-rancher. Thereís also a salty, briny scent of green olive which is light in comparison to the apple scents. Wood showing up too. Taste is pretty straightforward, with plenty of tart green apple showing up and throughout the finish. A little candy-like particularly upfront. The finish really dries out and yields a good amount of oak. Overall I havenít had many ciders, but I found this one to be very enjoyable, and Iíd definitely purchase this again.
