That1Guy (1962) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2014
750 mL bottle marked Batch #15 July 16, 2014. Split with Honkeybra. Totally badass label. Golden pour with a bit of haze and high carbonation. To be expected. Funky, earthy, fruity nose. Flavor is pleasantly tart and finishes very dry. Light and refreshing. Very nice.

rgf001 (156) - München, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2014
Batch 15. Hazy gold with good head and less than average retention. Some lacing. Aromas of brett, citrus, flowers. Flavors of spruce, lime-lemon, brett, hop resins, hints of spices (pepper?). Light to medium-light body, medium carbonation, tart, and a hint of tea-like astringency. Bitter and extremely dry finish. Awesome and unique.

phaleslu (6807) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2014
750 ml bottle from Errl- thanks again! Batch 16, July 2014. Pours a hazed yellow gold with a very large, soft, frothy white head. Trailing lace. Aroma of florals, grass, bready funk, sawdust, hay, botanicals, and soap. Flavor of lemon, pineapple, florals, bready funk, soap, pine, grass, honey, and tea. Medium-bodied, with moderate soft carbonation and a funky, sweet, juicy, moderately bitter and just barely tart mouthfeel. Like just about everything else they do, there’s a lot of complexity here. Really interesting. Another winner.

Bottle thanks to Mora2000 drank during Pats v Colts game. Pours hazy yellow with lovely white sudsy head. Nose is funky tart fruits. Tastes of tangerines, grapefruit, cantaloupe, grass, hay, earthy bitters, and florals. Lively palate. Great one really lifted my spirits from being sick as a dog for parts of the weekend.

HonkeyBra (3518) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazed golden with a big white head. Aroma of bread, mild sour dough and tartness. Nice fruitiness. Flavor is sweet with a mild tartness. Hop presence is there, with mild earth notes. Medium bitterness in the flavor with yeasty twang. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes sweet and lingers around a bit.

onceblind (4516) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Hazy light gold under a thick rocky white head. The nose is wonderfully complex with notes of sour yeast, fresh floral hops, malted wheat, hay, citrus, melon, lemongrass and a light barn note. Smooth yet robust flavor that’s prickly yet with a smooth sour twang, a touch leafy and earthy, some slight tropical fruitiness, hay, sour barn bacteria and a nice quaff-inducing refreshing finish with a loss of melon and lemongrass to sweeten it up. Nicely bitter with fresh leafy hops, but balanced and just the right amount of twang.

BVery (6961) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Sampled via bottle at WTWBA 2014 in Minneapolis. Hazy yellow pour. Soft sour, grass, lemon in this. This was good, but not great for me.
