Got a slug of a glass brought to me by my new best friend from that other site :) Slightly cloudy pale straw color with lots of funky tangerine on the nose. Bright acidity, clean punch of tart apple, apricot, funky dust and horse blanket notes. Really good based on my gulp... will reassess when someone decides to send me a bottle for my dome !

750ml bottle .. . Pours a deep yellow .. . mild head, lacing is solid .. . quite a fruity sour, sourness is balanced .. . clean mouthfeel .. . an upbeat beer, has held up well, but thinking this must have been more sour when first released. .. thanks to Rick for sharing this!! .. . .

Poured into north coast brewing snifter and shared with my wife stephanie and ratebeer legend daknole. An American wild ale that could pass for true Belgian gueuze - it has the Belgian Barnyard nose usually lacking in most American sours. Nice refreshing sour flavor that lingers well. An absolute treat to drink.

22/IV/13 - 75cl bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - BB: n/a (2013-375) Thanks to Bobochamp (and thus to Kraddel as well) for sharing the bottle!
Little cloudy orange beer, no head. Aroma: sour, funky, sweet ripe tangerines, orange peel, some overripe fruits, banana peel, little chemical touch, dusty, wood, hint of almonds. MF: soft to no carbon, medium body. Taste: almonds at first, very sour, lemony, green apples, woody, bitter, earthy touch. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, wood, apple skin, bit nutty, sourness burning your throat, orange peel, bit spicy, earthy, typical bretta flavours in the end. Maybe a bit too sour to maintain drinkability. Very refreshing though.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 750ml bottle. Clear golden with no head and lots of sediment in the bottle. Acidic, some chardonnay, oak, hints of citrus, sour, only slightly off balance. Moderate carbonation, acidic, bit lot vinegar, becomes dry, hint of lactose, little sweet at the end and then becomes intensely sour. Very happy to have tried this.

Thanks to the Braj Brogan, we popped a bunch of his rare gems with the boys before he went back to FLA to diversify his bonds nucca. The beer was really good but to be honest i was to drunk of a bunch of other legendatory brews to give an accurate rating. I’m fairly sure it was one of the best beers i have ever had, but it was for sure more about the company. Whatever the case, check it off the list.

Popped open izzy with a couple great BA’s
Poured a murky amber with a light pink HughNose was over ripe citrus and cabernet sauvignonTaste was filled with grape, grape skin, granny smith apples and barnyard funk.
Very light mouthfeel, smooth with a dry finish.
I didn’t expect much based on recent reviews stating izzy was past her prime. I could not disagree more. This has aged perfectly and was wonderful. Very happy that I have more!
