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.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2011 Bottle shared by GT2. Pours clear amber/copper with a medium, fizzy off-white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy lactic, horse blanket, barnyard, grapes, and cherries. Flavor is lactic grapes and cherry sourness, light caramel malt, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation with low warmth.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
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.

Orange yellow pour with a white head. Some bourbon and oak on the nose. Lots of sourness. Dry and very acetic. Fruity, maybe cherry or grape. Bitter finish.

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

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2011
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.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Murky variegated yellow brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of rising brown sourdough bread. Taste is sour brown soda bread. Decent.

Bottle. Clear burnt orange pour with an off white head. Orange and funk aromas. Sour, tart, and refreshing with orange/citrusy notes and undercurrents of vinegar and oak. Acidic. SImply delicious.....

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 23, 2011
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.
