corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange color with lighter banana colored edges and a one finger white foam head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Visible carbonation bubbling up and sporadic spots of lace left behind. Aroma is similar to that of a wheat based beer with zesty spice, bread, citrus fruit and pale malt notes. Slightly earthy but the brett presence is weaker than I expected. A little musty and funky but I’m getting more lactic sourdough bread and some subtle sulfur. Reminds me of a tame Berliner weisse. On the thinner end of medium bodied with a decent brett presence but again, tastes more like a wheat based beer with subtle funk. Crisp and refreshing with some zesty spice followed by bready yeast, citric acidity, light fruit and faint musty funk. Slightly lactic but not very sour or acidic. Peppery spice with some coriander and ginger followed by some banana, bread and strong lemon juice presence. The wild yeast adds subtle farmhouse funk and light tartness in the finish. Refreshing and easy to drink but not all that interesting.

dwyerpg (4528) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Smells a bit of funk and old paint. Looks okay, not real heady. The beer is sour and funky but in a fairly subdues way, not lambicish at all. Tasty but very pricey.

popkow (286) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle pours clear sunset orange with minimal white head. Aroma is cereal malt with fruity hops. Taste has good bitterness but a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Tonkun (847) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange brown pour with quickly disappearing head. Citrus, bread, banana and sweet spice. Lacks the depth but easy to drink.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2012
Corked/caged bottle from Ales Unlimited, San Francisco. Fully hazed apricot with a fine, subsiding white head. Good jammy gooseberry, parsley-like nose with lily pollen and a delicate whiff of pig pen/horse. Pleasant tangy stuff with a soft tang of lime-acidity perfumed with green herb (dill?) hints, coriander seed, slight almond and pepperiness. Surprisingly soft and perfumed. Pretty run-of-the-mill, vaguely delicious Belgian ale.

AdamJackson (2535) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Enjoyed in an Ommegang glass at cellar temp.

A - Poured a very hazy / cloudy dark orange with a finger head that dissipated pretty fast.

S - Very grazzy on the nose. Hint of citrus and floral notes. Nice dry bretty scent and citrus.

T - Sour tangerine taste. Very funky and grassy. Very crisp and sort of a lemon/lime finish but it’s very faint. Very tasty.

M - Medium carbonation, medium body. crisp and dry finish.

O - This is a nice drinkable beer.

StefanSD (2117) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 23, 2012
12.7 oz bottle. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that soon dissipates to a fine ring. The nose has a bit of brett, sour grapes, grains and something sweet. The flavor is an odd mixture of sweet biscuit, sour grapes, rock candy and bitter filberts. The palate is light with fizzy carbonation. Finishes short and unsatisfying with lingering rock candy. Overall: meh, way to sweet for me.

wlajwl (3814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Aroma is a mix of sour/tart fruit and bubblegum/bananas. The flavor is bubblegum sweetness, malts and a tart, mildly funky finish. Not quite as strong flavor as I was expecting, it was good but could’ve been better.

Bottle. Love the label so this must be good! Pours a murky light copper color with a minimal white head. The aroma is more supdued than I would have thought with hints of bubblegum and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel. Huh, taste more just like a belgian to me than anthing. Bubblegum and some fruit notes with a mild bitterness in the end. Where is the funk man?!
