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.

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 (1375) - 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.

From notes. 750 Bomber shared by Chris W (grazie). Liked the bottle graphics. Poured a cloudy yellow / orange with a thin off white head. Flavors of yeast and fruits, with touches of balsamic vinegar and wood. Has a nice sourness and a light citrus accent. Well carbed. Mellower than La Folie but delicious.

jrallen34 (3488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2011
bottle...bright glassy copper, a bit murky, a light tan head rises about three fingers but its gone quick... the nose is musky, hay, a bit of apples... lots of hay and spider webs, acidic but with a juice finish, very drinkable and tastey... very good

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 2, 2011
750ml bottle. Rating #102. Bright dark orange pour with a small white head. Big sour aroma, nice and tart. Very tart and super dry, holy crap! Real good stuff, takes a few sips to get used to, but really freaking good. (1568)

25.4 oz bottle. Clear pale pink with a white head. Nose is funky, almost fishy, yeast, wood and lemon pith. Crisp medium body with a sour bite. Taste is lemon juice, leather, white grapes and cherry. Probably the sourest of the five we sampled but not as funky or as fruity. My daughter’s favorite, her brewer boyfriend liked the Cable Car best.
