Bottle shred by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! Orange hued and slightly hazy. Letís get to the point, shall we? Nail polish remover, paint thinner, alcohol, contaminated apple juice. Ugh. Make it stop. Itís irrelevant to discuss this beer any further. Please donít. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-09-2011

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Served in a Bruery tulip, which is not tainted with whatever feelings of angst and oppression that glassware can feel. Pours a light apricot color. Thatís the best thing I have to say about this beer. Very hazy with no head. The nose is....well, itís downright awful. It smells like that gross powder that janitors used to use to clean up vomit in elementary school. Maybe with a bit of that vomit thrown in. Really all sorts of nasty chemicals. This literally* vaporized my tongue it was so disgusting, so so disgusting. Lots of alcohol heat there too, but Iím thinking maybe the alcohol helped in disguising something even more foul? Overall, taste this if you want to know what distilled paint thinner would taste like. Otherwise, you probably should avoid this beer. * Term perhaps used figuratively.

Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of funky horseblanket, vinegar, wild fermentation, and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of brettanomyces, caramel, and alcohol, as well as a lighter note of mold - but in a good way. The alcohol burns in the throat, but the body is light.

Interesting brew from Marin, still a lilí young but has potential. You can really taste the brett in this one

187 ml bottle @ brewery. Pours a clear golden orange color with no head. The aroma was tart fruits (apples, grapes) and acetone; this one seemed hot from the beginning. The flavor had quite a bit of heat, more acetone, tart apples and grapes, and oak. This didnít seem to showcase the brett very much, but then I didnít have this until late in the day. This was an interesting experiment at any rate.

Clear golden with no head. Oak sour fruit grape and wine aroma. Amazingly smooth white wine and oak taste with mellow Brett sourness. Finishes bright and clear with grape and green apple flavors. This beer is seriously under rated. Its only fault is lack of carbonation it should have been bottle conditioned but the bottle I had had no yeast at the bottom.

Tap at the Bistro BA Fest. Pours amber with no head. Aroma is oaky funk. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is oaky/funky. Really so. It is so mildly, decently soury, funky. And wonderfully oaky/woody.

On tap at Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. Pours and apricot color with no head, just a few white bubbles, and a funky barnyard aroma. The flavor is even more barnyard than the aroma, sweet and funky. It reminds me of the first time I drank gueuze - it started off tasting like garbage, but after some acclimation it started tasting better.

Draft at Bistro BA Fest. Light colored pour. Pungent aroma that makes me think I just walked into a flower shop. Flavor is really the same, tastes like cut up flowers, herbal and strange.
