Bottle from Lawson. Batch 1, 2013. Pours a bright, tawny golden orange, some bit of head. Aroma citrusy, Brett, juicy, body lively and tart, finish dry and lovely. This is top notch.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ home, thanks to readbaron. This beer rocks! Hazy golden orange appearance with a thin white head. The carbonation is a bit dull but this is an otherwise great beer. There’s a massive amount of bubblegum, pineapple / tropical fruit brett, and candy in the nose. Some moderate acidity - both lactic and acetic. Some cheese, lots of tropical fruit, mango, passion fruit, and pineapple. There’s vanilla and oak in there as well. Moderately tart. Tons of candy. Low bitterness and sweetness. If the carbonation was higher, this would be a 4.5-4.6. Supremely chuggable. JesusOfCO- this is what you should be aiming for. Fuck yeah.

750ml bottle, shared with the staff at Dutch’s. Mostly clear golden orange color, with lots of very-fine particles suspended in the body. Thin ring of off-white head, leaving good ropes and dots of lace. Satisfyingly oaky flavor, lemon-citrus and acidity, some mild belgian-type yeast, light spiciness, and good bigger farmhouse barnyard funky flavors. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick in the mouthfeel. Satisfyingly moderate sour taste, lighter to moderate sweet. Wonderful big oaky and lightly citric flavor. Great, sour golden ale. Not really like any biere de garde I’ve ever had -- lacks that big, soft, highly carbonated spicy mouthfeel that is common with the style, but I don’t miss that aspect at all. Do get the a lot of oaky funkiness and mild spiciness that is reminiscent of traditional examples, though. Just like Jolly Pumpkin is known to do, this example of biere de garde takes a lot of liberties... with pleasing results.

From bottle into a snifter. Nice very cloudy gold color with medium sized white head with fine bubbles. Nose has nice sour notes, lemon, barnyard, some biscuit malts, maybe some corn, . High carbonation, medium sweetness, moderate sour, hints of funk, slightly dry finish with some more sour, very well balanced. This is a very well crafted beer, very complex, smooth, drinkable, blew me away.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, batch 1 2013, nearly two years old. Pours a clear yellow-gold with small white head that quickly subsides. Aroma is pleasantly gueuze-like, though much less tropical than I remember it being the first time I had this beer (and didn’t rate it). White wine, lemons, musty cork, and lots of stone fruit, like unripe peach. Taste is moderately sour and acetic with lemon juice, oak tannins, unripe peach, light honey, and green mango. I’m reminded slightly of Temptation. Aroma is really the star here but it’s an excellent beer overall, even if it lacks the magical tropical fruit of bottles past.

@ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy light amber with a nice bubbly white head that drops quickly to a cover, streaks and shreds of lace. Taste is tart sour lemon and wheat and hay that is excellent as a quencher and appetite awakener. When does bier de garde become sour ale? This one must be close to the edge. Still, it is well done.
