37.5 cl bottle. Pours hazy amber witha big foamy head. Not sour at all but a nice funk, very mild tartness. mandarin, wood, and a big vinous character to this. Growing on me. Pretty good.

radiomgb (2582) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
375ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Beautiful deep amber in colour with a long lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is sour and funky, lots of lemons, white grapes, apple skins, some peaches. The flavour is of brett, wood and dust - musty basement really, some good lemon citrus, tart white grapes, herbal and floral. Musty mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, bretty. Just a beautiful beer all around. Soft on the pallet but huge amounts of flavour. Nearly the perfect beer for me.

Bottle from Blackrock cellar. Pours amber with off white head. Strawberry bubblegum, candy floss nose with hint of bread. Flavour is bubblegum with slight apple tartness. This not a sour or wild ale. Nice but was expecting something with a little more bite on finish.

PunkAGM2015 rate catchup from notes. 6/6/15. Unfortunately suffered from following a DIPA and so subtlety as lost a little. Pretty funk and sour. Not my thang.

Cuerpo medio fcil de beber,espumoso y con 9 vol que no destacan mucho. Sabores maltosos dulces afrutados con apreciable toque de madera empapada en vinos acabando con cierta acidez todo perfectamente combinado. Bastante buena, notables sabores del envejecimiento. Para repetir sin duda.
