Bottle @ RBWG. Pours a murky dark orange appearance with a thin head. Heavy vinegar and dark fruits. Very tannic. Pretty door. Very oaky. Some grape notes. Cheesy notes. Some oxidation. Maybe a bit old.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at RBWG Asheville Grand Tasting. Thanks to Derek! Pours lightly hazy yellow-gold with a bubbly head. Nose has wood, tart lemons. Quite sour flavor, mild sweetness, big citric lemon bite, pale woody dryness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Bracing sourness to finish, more drying wood, lemon tartness. Nice stuff.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of 2007 bottle, very hazy yellow pour with thin to no head, aroma brought big funky, oaky notes, hints of white fruit, nice lemony, lactic, tart fruit notes, hints of leathery barnyard in there as well. Taste is a mix of tart lemon, biscuit, bread, nice earthy barnyard like funk, hints of cheese, bleu cheese notes, nice oak, finishing sour, lactic. Nice but lacking any real carbonation hurts it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle generously extraed by Sean - thanks! Still copper colored pour. Aroma is hay, heavy oak, old musty something or another, and perhaps some light lemon. Taste has some funky gueuze characteristics with cheese rine, funk, tart/sour, and lemon. Some vinegar level sour into the finish. Watery mouthfeel. Unique and enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark cider color, barely any carbonation, sweet and sour aroma, overripe fruit, sharp acids, citric and acetic, leaves stickiness behind due to lack of carbonation.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ a recent tasting... Poured hazy, burnt orange with no head. This was a lactic, acetone bomb. Too much of that and crossed over into drain pour territory. Hard to pick out anything else since the acidity of this beer was so intense. Not for me.
