From notes. First reviewed 9/22/2011. Poured from a growler into a tulip. The color is a full brown, almost entirely transparent with a bubbly froth of a white head on top. Pretty good retention and lace for a wild ale from a growler. Lots of funk initially, after the pour sits for a minute it becomes more subtle. Brown malts with a soft caramel sweetness, tart lactic cherry, and vinegar. The toasted grain and caramel sweetness up front lingers for a second, but the focus is on the lactic vinegar tartness, which brings some nice cherry flavor with it. A bit of funk at the end. It finishes on the tart side, but still fairly clean. This definitely creates some salivation. The vinegar pulls at the inside of my cheeks and dries them out. The body is on the full side of medium for a wild, with carbonation on the lighter side. When we popped the cap off the growler, the funky aroma was pretty spectacular. It didn’t quite hold up to that standard, but this was a very good wild, considering it is fresh and I normally like these with some age to let the funk develop. A win for Kuhnhenn for sure.

Growler… Mostly clear burnt-orange ale with minimal head. The aroma consists of caramel, fruity acidity and a suggestion of Belgian spice. Medium-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is moderately tart and fruity and mildly caramely with a hint of Belgian spice. Tangy finish with a whisper of butter. Kudos to KickInChalice for floating this growler my way!

Draft. Pours deep amber with a thin white head. Nice acidic and tart aroma with some earthy and woody notes. The flavor has a nice balance of brett funk and sweetness, with some light acidity and some strawberry-like fruity notes. Good stuff.

On tap at Blind Tiger with Andy, Streets, James. Ruby-red pour with not much lacing or head. Dry, tart aroma with a lot of sugar. Palate is red fruits and some slight hoppiness - or maybe just high carbonation. Either way, it’s very refreshing for the style.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Pouring at the Blind Tiger for Mike’s 50th birthday extravaganza. Pours a mostly clear ruby without too much head on it. Bretty, wood, light acid, and a touch of umami showing up as it warms. Softly sour, fruity, oude bruin like. Woody, soft acid, funky and wood. Dry brett, long wood and light acid on the finish. While not the wonderful pile of deliciousness that the cherry and blueberry were, this is still quite solid.

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Draft at blind tiger with Andrew, Brendan, streets and baron. Originally would have guessed this was the Cherry PitH just because the fruit notes were very subdued and could only really make out cherry. Makes sense hearing that it was the straight with Brett though. Pours a hszy red. Aroma is cherry and dry fruits - citrus and pear. Mouthfeel is smooth but then finishes dry with notes of sour cherry and funk.

Tap at BT for Mike’s Bday bash - dark brown pour, sour old fruit in the nose, with plenty of funky/bretty notes. Nectarines and peaches fruit juice, with a touch of oxidation, earthy fruits. Ton of sourness and earthy fruits. Very tasty.

growler... dark but clear copper, a goldish color, light tan head... musty nose with some tartness but a weird undertone of brine, salty... the taste is equally weird, light sour soy sauce, tart, hay, baby diaper, the more I drink the grosser it gets
