yngwie (15763) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle, 75cl, at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. A hazy amber colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is tad weak I think, with dried fruit notes, lemon juice, some leathery, barnyard funk and a hint of fruit caramel. It’s medium bodied and dry on the palate, quite effervescent, with flavors of dried fruit, lemon juice and funk. Grapefruit bitter. Lasting finish. Needs some temperature this one, but even then it’s not more than good. 150614

ttoadee (1079) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Brown pour, amber hue, quick off white head. Nose is a hint of cherries, wood, funky yeast. Somewhat sour. Middle is soft leather, plums, sweet malt, and light toffee. Finish is sour and refreshing. Try this one, preferably with food (Mild Italian sausage, baked beans and fresh Roma tomatoes for me.)

bwa5879 (826) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Very cloudy orange brown pour with white corona of head. Cottony sweet tart aroma, apple and florals with a hint of lactose, straightforward. Very soft carbonation, tingly mouthfeel - detectable sour, crisp dry finish. Flavor of cracked pepper, lots of lemon and apple, barnyard funk, earthy malt. Nice light bodied sour that doesn’t overdo it.

Listigovers (572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
Slight funky grainy aroma, tons of yeast. Flavor is acidic and sour, quickly changing to strike hop flavor, and then finishing dry and bready. Excellent, strong flavour but easy to drink.

ARH (979) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2015
On tap, poured into a balloon snifter. The aroma is oak and sour cherry with a warm bake spice and pie crust, along with some caramel adding to the mix late. The beer pours a murky amber with a thick, white soap head that has a moderate light retention and only a light, runny lace. The taste is a balance between medium sweet and sour with a slightly less potent (although still present) bitter; it has a nice overall roundedness. The beer is oily with a soft fizz and a medium body. The taste is dry, sweet, tart plums, cherries, and a hint of citrus with a light woody smoke, light caramel, and a swallow that has a zesty, zippy clean quality with a bright toffee flourish. It finishes clean with a resinous character and a taste of light, sour citrus, candy apple, candy corn, and a dry rye bread which lasts only a short time leaving just a touch in the aftertaste.
