Bottle. Etched glass. Pours dirty gold with white head. A bit of a gusher. Nose/taste of sour fruit, wild yeast, funky ripe lemons, toasted grain and some bandaid/burnt plastic notes. Medium body.

swanmann (568) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - APR 14, 2014
Cloudy copper orange with tons of off-white foam. It smells of lemony esters, some banana, caramel. The flavor is a bit like a penny wrapped in a grapefruit. It bypasses sour all together. I finishes sharp and bitter, woody, tannic. Medium palate with heavy carb, although the mouthfeel is still creamy rather than prickly. This brew is wild, for sure. I don’t really know if I like the flavor, but the palate really helps it along, adding just a touch of syrup as it warms. BOLD flavor.

Experiment_Ale (650) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2014
At Marcus’ place for a weekday tick-a-thon. Pour is orange, cloudy, darkish. Aroma is thin, water, light oak. Taste is harsh funk, rubbing alcohol. The beer burns on the way down. Not good.

Pours hazy dark golden color with white head. Earthy and citrusy aromas with brett and funk. Bretty and funky flavor with lemon, grass and earthy tones. Light to medium body with lively carbonation. Very good.

Super perfume like and floral aroma. Sweet and floral. Appears dark gold with white head a thorough lacing. Taste is sweet and tart with very noticeable Brett, and slight hopped bitterness.

Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of JulienHuxely. Pours a hazy amber beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is Bretty, barnyard funk with leather aspects as well. Flavor is light sour, funky and yeasty. Very nice drinkability, long, light sour aftertaste. Really well made sour beer by Mikkeller. Nice one!
