330ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow amber colour, foam over white head that quickly dissipates away and aroma of sour fruits, hay, yeast.

nuplastikk (4139) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 11.2oz bottle. Unfiltered thick orange-tan body. After the initial gush, maintains a thin white head, Quite an enjoyable sour. Dry biscuity mouthfeel. Tropical sour flavors, pronounced Brett. Peppery noble hops. Displays a great balance and drinkability that most US sours lack. I would drink this beer every day. Really nails it. Some variation in bottles for sure.

TheBeerGod (5055) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle - under the "Itís Alright" moniker. Hazy golden amber with a short, foamy white head. Could swear I smelled pickles upon first whiff. And hints of funky cheese??? Thereís also plentiful yeast, earthy notes, sour fruit and flowers. Taste is funky yeast notes, bold earthiness, musty basement, tart fruit, soft grains, dried flowers and horseblanket. Body is light and lively with a soft carbonation. Ends with more bountiful notes of funky yeast, damp earthiness, horseblanket, tart fruit, soft grains and floral notes.

solidfunk (3023) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Light farmhouse Belgian. Nice hay and some bitterness at finish. Pours golden blond. Some lacing, no head. Light palate ok but a little light on palate. Touch of sourness as well. Some soda water - pretty high fizzy carbonation. Tasting at volos. Thanks to Radek.

Amber hazy body. Generous white head, small bubble and creamy. refreshing aroma, floral and fruit (apricot?, grapes perhaps?). Medium body, smooth texture; high carbonation. Dry finish. Strange taste, a little sour, fruity (lemon, apricot); good but maybe not very good balanced.
