Thanks GT2. Hazy orange pour with a thin white veneer. Nectar and doughy funk in the nose with massive dark fruit and acetic acid in the flavor. Cherry to the max, with a super acetic mouthfeel and a dry finish.

Thanks to ygtbsm94 for bringing this! Nose and flavor hold plum, pear, sour cherry, and a very very dry tartness. Good sweet malt with cheesy dough, more tart dark fruit in the flavor. Nice, but not outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL thanks to Sean9689. Pours a clearish, glowing candy orange with a short lived, denser, white head. Rhubarb and mushroom nose with small green veggies. Taste is sharp, very sour, citric, giant lactic backend. Wickedly salty and mouth watering. Muted but presence acetic heat. Very tough to get through. Disappointing.

Very acetic, some light goat and smoke. Taste is similar, lots of vinegar. Couldn’t drink more than a few ounces of this.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94: pours a slightly hazy deep bronze amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet caramel toffee nose with lots of tart fruity notes and vinous oak. Starts with good effervescence and tartness with a touch of light malty sweetness before a drier puckering finish with some lingering oak.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle. Courtesy of Ben (Mothman). Pours a slightly hazed amber orange color with a light tan coastered head. Nice aroma with a very solid orange citrus note coupled with both lemons and orange. Similiar to the aroma, the taste is a nice balance of lemon sourness and citrus sweetness with a touch of wood. Nice level of sourness. Light mouthfeel with carbonation. An excellent beer and worthy of trying to find.
