Tap at Watering Hole. Copper with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Big aromas of green apple, pear, fig and apricot with some grass and booze. Dry and sweet on the palate with lots of oak. Booze is there but hidden quite well. Apple brandy like in a way. Excellent!

Cloudy apricot hue with a fluffy white head. Aroma is lemon juice, tangerine, peach, mild funk, red apple. Amazing nose. Flavor blends wheat, sour apple, peach, mild funk, white pepper, medium-level acidity. Perfectly balanced, good complexity. Another amazing iteration.

Nice pour at this year’s FunkFest at Bittercreek. Pours a slightly hazed dark amber brew.. Light khaki head with no real retention or lacing. Nose is sharp acid with oak and the whiskey only barely delivers the apple promise. Definitely shows the bones of La Folie... burning acidity, but not unpleasant.. With warmth a lot more fruity complexity arises (underripe plum, tart cherries) but so does the acidity... Well done, but 10oz was plenty until the next time I see this rarity.

10 oz pour on tap at Bittercreek. Pretty acidic nose, brown in color. I have loved every variant of this beer. Alchol is pretty hidden when cold, but letting it warm up some makes it even better.

Draft at Max’s Belgian fest. Cloudy brown color. Aroma of vanilla, cherry, plum, raisin. Taste is softly sour plum, tart cranberry, mixed winter fruit. Delicious.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAR 10, 2014
On tap @ Churchill’s. Dark amber pour with a small off-white head. Highly acetic aroma. Green apple, lemon juice, and sour berry as well. Some grass, oak, cola, and mild whiskey/booze. This has to have a pH of about 2, holy moly. Super vinegar, lemon juice, and sour green apple. A bit of sour berry, citric acid, and some grass. Dry oaky finish, mild whiskey, and a subtle sugar/malt sweetness.

On draft. Slightly hazy orange/red pour, with a thin off white head. Very sour and acidic, lemon juice, light sweetness, note of whiskey barrel, and a bit of fruit. Ok sour, not very balanced.
