pours unclear orange with a nice white cap, some retention and lacing. bready lightly toasted malts, doughyness - with its sweetness, bretty - leathery, very fruity and juicy - peaches, white grapes - ice cider-like fruitiness and sweetness, tingling botrytis and other wild stuff. average to moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and almost sticky, drying finish - not really dry, winey and grassy-spicy finish. unique, tasty and very enjoyable.

Very well-balanced sour. Nice level of bretta and some fruity orange tangerine. Some funky malt as well. Sour and bitter finish. Everything blends well here. Some tang as well. Bottle at Volo for Zwanze Day.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty peach. Aroma is very mild sour. Taste is a good balance between the yeast of a saison and sour of a wild ale. Light tart. Palate is not ridiculously difficult. Decent sour ale.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cL bottle from work (Co-op WSB). Brought this out to celebrate beginning of a long weekend. Clear golden pour (bit of a reddish tinge maybe, or just odd lighting in my buddy’s kitchen) with a sticky white foam that bubbles away fairly quick. Wondrous aromas of manuka honey, vanilla, lavender, and cornbread ooze out of this gem. Palate is sticky bubble gum sweetness, and the sourness of the brett comes in with some glorious grapey, sour apple notes. Fantastique from ltdd!

75cl bottle at CBC Clerkenwell, thanks to Bruce! Hazy amber pour with a big pillowy head. Nose holds big cheesecloth, brett, spicy herbs, cherry, and apple. The flavor has big barrely tannic qualities, chardonnay, cinnamon, and dry barnyard. The palate is extremely dry and really lets the complexities of the flavor shine through. Great sour.

Redish gold with tiny white head. Fruity aroma with a hint of funk. Flavor is sweet and a bit funky. Lacks compared to the smell.
