A: The pour is a nice golden amber color with a fluffy white head and some mild lacing. S: The nose has some nice citrus hops along with a subtle tartness to it. A touch of funk and yeast, and a seemingly oaky smell that I was not expecting. T: A mild tartness, apples, pears, and not really any hop character like the nose would make you believe. Not all that complex, surprisingly. M: The body is medium with a pleasant carbonation and a bit dry. D: I don’t really know if this was supposed to be sour, and I don’t think it was. But, the tartness actually worked pretty decently.

Tmoney99 (10455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Draft sample at the MBG Winterfest 2009. Poured a hazy orange color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus, wood and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a very drinkable complex beer and my expectations where exceeded.

hopscotch (8866) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Hand Bottle… Hazy golden ale with no head. The nose is vinous and funky – wood, citrusy hops and Dap wood finish. Full-bodied with low carbonation. The flavor is medium to heavily bitter, lightly tart and woody. Lengthy, metallically bitter finish. Thanks to GoT and northernbrews for the sample!

From a keg at the RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours a hazy peach color with a minimal head. Fruity and floral aroma with a light tartness, citrus and earthy notes. The taste is citrus, stone fruits, caramel and a faint tartness. Medium bodied.

Ughsmash (7099) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Thanks to Mike for the 750mL bottle. Too bad the thing rocketed out of the bottle onto my keyboard.. Poured hazy medium orange with a dense cap of white head. The aroma picked up black pepper, dusty spices, vinous notes, and oak over honey notes and pale malts.. the Brett really took hold.. more orange peel as it warmed up. The flavor found pale and fruity notes at the core.. dry, peppery notes, funky earth, and orange peel around.. spicy, dry finish. Medium-bodied and very dry on the palate.. the Brett dried it out and the age mellowed out the IIPA part of this.. I did enjoy the wine and oak influence.. this wasn’t great, but it was definitely interesting.

sebletitje (6592) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2010
Dog Days of Summer Gathering thanks GOT. handbottled. golden-orange pour, thin white head. nose keeps a moderate wood approach along with hops and some tropical fruits, tangy orange. wood profile is mild. light citrus, honey sweetness, prickly/spiced mouthfeel along with some tropical fruits. Palate keeps a nice dry-hopped profile although the overall aspect along with the barrel aging made made for a low carbonation with mostly wood barrel and prickly mouthfeel coming through. Barrel aging works well on this one.

deyholla (6505) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a hazy amber orange with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has light fruit with a decent amount of tartness with a bit of yeast and a barrel backing. Flavor is slightly bitter upfront with hops but is mainly lightly tart with a bit of a barrel and grain backing.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Smells of pineapple and oaky. Tastes of caramel, citrus and on the dry side.

phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle shared by somebody at bsuedekum’s tasting. Pours a semi-cloudy tea color with a wispy off-white head. Notes of earth, dust, pale and sweet malts, melon and light citrus fruits, and herbs. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tea-like mouthfeel. Good, complex, interesting beer, though the multiple barrels seemed to have washed one another’s characteristics out.
