Sarlacc83 (1364) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 24, 2015
750 ml bottle thanks to Jer. A: Cloudy orange, white head. N: Phenols, lemon and grapefruit, some peach, green apple, undercut by the cheese and vinegar at the bottom. T: A bit smoky and tart. M: Light body, medium level of carbonation. O: Iím not really sure what the point was here. Itís an experiment, but I prefer the Scotch flavors with darker beers and not sours.

750ml bottle thanks to Jer. Pours out a cloudy straw topped with a small head. Nose is amazing lemon oak dusty notes and lots of tannins. Taste is more of the lemon oak barrel and tart.

Wow. The line-up of all those Varitas in a vertical at the RBSG Grand Tasting by Jared was unreal. They were all good but this one was amazing. Poured a slightly cloudy gold color with a wisp of a white head. Nose is a huge aroma of funk and fermented fruit. Body is bold and mouthfeel lively. Flavor is a wonderful funk and they is a long dry funky and earthy finish. Did I mention funK?

mcberko (9344) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy blonde with a tiny white head. Nose is very wordy, with loads of tannins and oak. Flavour is aggressive with the woody tannins, bringing out loads of oak and wood. Very tannin heavy. Fairly aggressive carbonation. Excellent.

Good complexity & depth, wild aromas, deceptively more-ish. Ages really well, real treat for RBSG ?15.

Bottle - Lots of lemon and citrus with som mango. Cloudy gold with a small head. Light vinegar and mango with a clean finish. Very easy drinking. One of the more drinkable ones.

Bottle thanks to Jared, shared at RBSG Grand tasting. Pours a hazy yellow gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk, wood, earth. Thick mouth, strong funk, hay, yeast, fruity, dry finish, really enjoyed this one.

Transferring my old review.
I brought this to the Inaugural "Imminent Liquidation Bottle Share" Event. Bottle poured into a taster glass.

A - Pours hazy straw yellow with a strong one and a half finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving spotty lacing down the glass.

S - Some earthy funk, dulled citric acidity, dark tea spice, oak, and some light astringency. The strong dry funk is a bit overpowering but still not as bad as some of the other reviews.

T - Very similar to the nose. Plenty of dry funk, light citrus acidity, oak, and herbal tea. Finish is quite dry with some lingering funk. Not too much pucker in this wild, more of a light funk. Compared to some of the other wilds at the event it was a letdown but on its own it was not too bad.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderately high carbonation. When we opened the bottle it gushed some out and foam filled the space where the liquid used to be. Dry, crisp, feel with plenty of it lingering thru the finish.

O - Pretty good. This was much better than some of the reviews made it seem. It was not as good as the other wilds we were drinking but it was still pretty good. Glad I got to try it.

Godofthecellar (677) - NYC, New York, USA - APR 22, 2013
Poured into a LA tekku. Straw yellow color with a perfect circle of cloud like head which was gone after the first sip. This was very unique. Both nose and taste was herbal, almost clove like. Flavor of a cup of tea mixed with half a lemon. Acetic, slightly metalic, with a hint of grass

Consumed with all ten Veritas beers on April 14, 2012. Shared by Thorpe429, who had this shipped to my house last minute to ensure it would be there to complete the vertical. You rock, Mike. The beer is straw yellow with a light haze. Atop the beer is a small head that fades within a few minutes. The aroma offers herbal notes, tea, lemonade. Certainly an atypical scent from a beer of this ilk. That said, I enjoyed this beer, though I found most of the other beers in this series to be much more complex, intriguing, and flavorful. Tea and lemonade flavors prevail, with only subtle hints of tartness / sourness. Iím glad to have tried this, but I doubt I would have it again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-22-2012
