superspak (2455) - Michigan, USA - APR 30, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass; Blend 1, bottled 3/1/2011. Pours lightly hazy reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger foamy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tart cherry, sour apple, raisin, caramel, clove, pepper, toast, oak, hay, leather, red wine, grass, funk, vinegar, and earthy yeast spiciness. Incredible aromas with great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast notes with moderate malt balance and barrel character. Taste of tart cherry, sour apple, raisin, caramel, pepper, clove, toast, oak, hay, leather, red wine, grass, vinegar, funk, and earthy yeast spiciness. Moderate fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart fruits, caramel, clove, pepper, toast, hay, grass, oak, leather, red wine, vinegar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/spicy esters with moderate barrel character and malt balance; with a great tartness/sweetness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy, slick, and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an incredible wild Biere de Garde style! All around great complexity and balance of flavors; and very smooth to sip on with moderate acidity. An extremely enjoyable offering.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle from Tommy, thanks! Pours a murky light brown with very small head. No lacing. Aroma of little dried fruits, a bit of honey, funk, brett. Taste has a light brown sugar, dark fuits, oak, honey, nice sourness, a bit acetic but nothing too agressive. Low body and low carbonation. Like this one a lot.

Goût de levures fruitées sauvages légèrement sûres et acides (agrumes et pommes sûres, notes de cerises sûres) avec des notes boisées (fût de chêne) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût malté de caramel très doux avec des notes de grains sucrés puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de de houblon floral sec avec des notes épicées (poivre). Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, légèrement acide de levures sauvages fruitées (pomme, traces d’agrumes et de cerises sûres) avec des notes amères de houblon floral.

Bottled on 3-9-12 that overflowed slowly. Poured opaque, burnt orange with bubbly off white head that recedes. Nose is Brett funk, barnyard, fermented apples and cherries with distinct oak notes. On the palate, tart, sour cherries and plums, oak and tea. Mouth puckering dryness on the finish. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2012
This beer pours a hazy brownish-red color with a medium light beige head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Fruity aroma of apples and cherries. Medium body with flavors of tart cherry, yeast and wood. The finish is fruity with a lingering funky aftertaste. Good beer all around.
