COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewer’s Notes: Batch #1 is the very first beer ever to be brewed on our brewhouse. It’s been aging in barrels with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis since the beginning of February and is now a beautifully delicate sour beer with a cidery finish, a light Brett Brux funk, and gorgeous buttery oak notes.

I can remember the first time I had to go to sleep. Mom said, "Steven, time to go to sleep" I said "But I don’t know how." She said, "It’s real easy. Just go down to the end of tired and hang a left." So I went down to the end of tired, and just out of curiosity I hung a right. My mother was there, and she said "I thought I told you to go to sleep.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate, but quickly disappearing head. Nose is has a little bit of citrus in there with the Brett you’d expect and a hint of that Belgian yeast. Taste is very slightly sour with some citrus, yet is quite smooth. Not a huge fan, but not bad.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle shared by YGTBSM in the lobby RBWG. Was a little scared to try this but was surprised that it was fairly drinkable. Nose is oak, light cherry skins, Brett, cotton candy. Flavor is similar, notes of sweettarts, hay, light funk and Brett. Better than most of their offerings, but in no way deserving of its almost $30 price tag. $8-10 is much more reasonable for the quality of this beer. We know what stuff costs.

Kinz (3365) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Richmond 19th. Light gold appearance. Aroma is sour, barnyard. Flavor is solid, very light wheat,hay, great sour and barnyard finish. Really, really liked this one. Rather divisive in how people reacted to this one. I thought it was a really interesting beer, and a heck of a way for a new brewery to get started.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Cloudy orangey yellow, thin white head. Smells lemony, funky, stoney, with other barnyard notes. Nice and light and crisp. Funky and sour, with notes of cherry and lemon. Some dusty, oaky, notes as well. Some white wine, and persistent sour throughout. I’d drink this all the time...if it were about a quarter of the price... Bottle 323 of 900

Butters (3860) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Sampled at the Richmond Gathering 19. Clear golden with bright white head. Tart. Not really sour. Brett is evident. Its like a bretty light lemonade. Pretty good, but sure as hell not worth the $26 price tag. Still, nice.

RG 19. Bottle. Orangey with a thin head and light lacing. Smells tart. Tastes sour but not crazy sour.

Bretty cheesy persimmon, oak. Hazy golden, thin head. Tart but watery mouthfeel. Light body persimmon white grape. Less funk on the palate.
