From bottle. Dark amber. Lasting orangey head. Nose is 100% sour yeast. Sharp sourness. Bitterness followed by subtle sweetness on end of sip. Notes of green apple, mild caramel, dry white wine. Did notice ABV on first sips...

Theydon_Bois (9145) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle at home, from Beermerchants.com, listed as 9% ABV 02/01/14. Pours a murky golden amber with a big billowing creamy off white cap that collapses then stays for the show. Nose carries light floral notes, on the turn apricot yoghurt, dank wood, pissoi, soured grapes, musty, dry rot. Taste comprises peaches and cream (tarte and soured), dank wood, faint herbal strain, floral notes, barnyard, funky. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, tarte puckering closure with a sweet tingle. Nice sour, quite a bit going on here without being overly complex and staying an easy drinker that I rattled off on my own in 20 or so minutes.

MacBoost (1328) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle from box aroma, pours a deep cloudy amber with plenty of off white head offered. Aroma is tricky to fuck, clocking in with some sour dark fruit, raisins, soured grapes. Taste is moderately funky, sweaty brett with notes of soured figs. Finishes dry and lightly tart. Not a huge pucker. Pretty good. Overpriced.

jbruner (2358) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Bottle shared thanks to thebsmitty! Pours a medium golden brown with dissipating off-white head. Aroma is oak barrel sweetness, musky grapes, hint of bret. Taste follows, yeast and sweet musty grapes with a hint of booze. Smoother than the other I tried, tannic awesomeness.

thebsmitty (137) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours heavy white head with medium to darker amber color. Smell is bret brux, a bit floral, light barnyard, white wine, and tropical fruit. Taste is yeast, white grapes, light hay, oak, lemon soap, oak, and a lil warmth. Really good stuff.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Poured an amberish color with an off white head. Funky, vinous/grapes, woody, and citrus. Had this after the Lychee version and the Lychee was definitely a lot more sweeter than this one.

haukur (1309) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - NOV 4, 2013
Funky woody, boozy, cheesy aroma. Coppar with a small head. There is a slight vinegar hint with some bitter lemons, surprisingly estery with a oaky funky almost wet finish. Fun brew but goes a bit over the top

mikeyo1 (236) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2013
Sample at smöf 2013. 2007 edition. Hazy golden. Aroma of goose berries, toast, easterly red fruit, hay and yeast. Medium body. Taste is sweet with a sour note but less than expected. Fruits bread, wheat and a bit of bitter vinegar that lasts quite long in the taste. This one probably peaked a year or two ago?
