Pours dark and stinky. Smells like that rotten meat between your teeth when you floss, but watered down. Has the scent of fresh asphalt. Says wild yeast and Brettanomyces on the bottle but is hardly sour. If you're into seriously funky 'sours' buy this.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle @ Steve_0’s house. Thanks! Pour a dark orangish brown appearance with a light brown head. Aroma has nuts, celery, cooked vegetables, and caramel. A little twangy. Herbal and woody. Some toasted malt and caramel. More vegetables in the flavor. Low sweetness. Moderate low bitterness. It just tastes off all around.

Steve_0 (3587) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle at home with friends. Pour is Murky brown with a small tan head and good lacing. Caramelly, bready, lightly toasty, somewhat acidic, oaky, and peppery aroma. Taste is vinous, bready, doughy, light smoke, somewhat toasty, and grassy with a slightly bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not good.

SpringsLicker (3288) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Thanks to crajun for the trade! Batch #6 Pours clear brown with a minimal head. Tart fruity aroma. The flavor is tart and fruity, but there’s not much here in depth or complexity. A bit thin.

tomer (2416) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 26, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2015 Bottle, very cloudy lightish brown color, aroma of dark chocolate and dark sourdough brad, flavor of sourdough bread with some metalic and funky rubbery notes, pircing sourness. Good and highly original.

Bottle at WTWBA 2015 in Minneapolis - I picked this up at Zwanze Day 2015 in Elkader, IA and brought it to the event. Batch 8 bottle. Hazy cola colored pour. Earthy, dusty - not really my thing.

radagast83 (6103) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2015
Draft at Snallygaster 2015. Poured a dark ruby color with a small off-white wispy head. Aroma was light watery grains, sweet malts. Flavor was like drinking some water passed through spent grains. Easy to drink for the most part, but seemed to be lacking in something.
