25oz bottle from Whole Foods Bowery. Batch 1113/1118. Bottled 10-02-2012. Pours hazy straw with a pillowy white one inch head. Aroma is tart, citrus and especially yeast. Taste is sour, spicy, citrusy and slightly peppery all in a perfect balance. Extremely drinkable. Terrific beer.

Flaska från whole foods New York. Disig gul vätska med vitt skum. Syrlig och fräsch doft. Citron, gräs och lite funk. Ganska stallig och pepprig smak med citron, hö, ceder och äpplekart. Syrlig med fin torr avslutning

AndresTM (394) - Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 A hazy honey-ish yellow with a big, foamy head that goes away quickly and threatens a much more vigorous palate than what actually comes. The nose is fruity esters in the foreground (grapes, green apples, just a bit of pineapple), spiced up by zesty Brett, mineraly yeast, a bit of old wood, a suggestion of booze, and even a dash of herbs. As the glass goes shallow, honey and caramel come to life too. The mouthfeel is medium and smooth, with constant but unintrusive carbonation and a medium-to-thin body. The taste is more tart than not, with minor mineraly bitterness and minor citrusy sweetness. Towards the end it turns drier, with notes of lemon zest and yeast. Not my go-to type of beer, but it is interesting, refreshing (at least initially), and deceivingly impairing.

Pours hazy golden with tall white head. Aroma of elderflower, gooseberry, green apples, light green grapes, light citrus. Taste is mellow balanced apple tart with a lightly sweet, smooth finish. Light, crisp body with soft carbonation. Maybe not exceptional in any way, but incredibly well balanced and oh so very drinkable!

9/18/2009 5:41:56 AM Bottle at Beer Tempel. Big golden body with foamy head. Oaky and floral nose, some cheese even. Taste is quite funky, with cheesy hops and lots of spiciness. But also quite sour. Overall it’s quite tasty but not really my thing.

drpimento (2626) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Aroma starts out Brett, fruit, and a bit of funk then later gets perfumey. Flavor likewise transforms from just a tart beer to a fruity, malt, beer with many levels. Perfect body for style. Very drinkable.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Pale straw color with thin white head and carbonation from the bottom of the slightly hazy pour. Aroma of sour apples and grapes. Taste of tart apricots and more apples with a Brett funk in the background. Finishes tart and crisp.
