4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at Moosetoberfest by boamr, thanks Ryan. Poured a clear golden body with a small and quickly disipating white head. Aroma is super sour, slightly funky, a touch of smoke and plastic resin. Flavor is tart and sour with a touch of fruit and peach. Thinner bodied with a long lingering sour aftertaste. Really nice and I’m glad I got to try this one.

Aroma like a lemon meringue pie. Extremely tart, but not overpowering. Just the right sour/funk balance. Superb.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of bleeng. Very clouded banana yellow. Fair amounts of sedimentary chunks apparent. Lovely sour aroma with tart hints of citrus fruit with grain. Taste is mouth puckering sour. Causes the tongue to wrap up, disappear and come back for more. Finish wrinkles your innards as you plead for mercy but it is unrelenting. Duck, duck, goose....your soul is forfit.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to DuffManSW. Opaque straw colored pour with a small, loose, white head. Lactic aroma with a sweet, wheaty malt and a shot of fresh squeezed lemon. The flavor is grainy and grassy with some light sweetness, straw and tart lactic finish with lots of lemon zest. Very dry medium body with soft carbonation. I loved the delicate balance of sweet and sour in this.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2011 Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, oak, wild yeast, bacteria, citrus, toffee, and some apple. Taste of sour grapes, vanilla, wood, brett, and a sour finish.

Thanks to the Guys at Julio’s for busting this out at the Tasting with Tomme, a Real treat.
Hazy yellow pour with a nice little white head. Aroma is great brett funk, some peach and pear, and a bit of tart.
Flavor is very funky, and some mild tartness. Great blending going on here. A bit of sour wood and acidity, finish is a dry lemon peel and hay tartness. Breathtaking. Good Job.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy yellowish pour with slight amber tints and a nicely lasting small white head. Aroma is brett funk, some sweet nectar fruits, grapefruit, and excellent tartness. Flavor is quite acidic with an ever so mild vinegar quality. Loaded with brett character and some lemon-tart and grapefruit nectar. Palate is mildly effervescent with semi dry, slippery finish. Amazing.
