3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Bright translucent golden body, thin off-white/buff head. Nose of moldy cheese and wet socks, sour, sweet, and funky, with notes of vinaigrette. Sour, funky body with wet socks and modestly appetizing vomit and bile. Sour with firm bite. More smile than frown, perhaps rotten’s doppelganger.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle. Clear golden amber with a bubbly white head that leaves a frosting. Smells like a fresh piece of Bazooka bubblegum on a spring day. Surprisingly sweet and floral with just a hint of leather and papaya. Medium light with a mild sparkle but pretty much like sucking lemons. As it warms more like tart green apple. Simple and very sour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 mL bottle a generous soul shared at the So Long Sea Bass Tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is faint cherry and fruit with a blast of brett and sour- vinegar, sourness, funk, and oaky vinous quality. Flavor is similar with lots of tartness, lemon, and dry wine character. A science project in a bottle. Nice gueuze.

Bottle courtesy of deyholla. He deserves lots of props for trading these to me. Derek is a really cool guy. Pours a clear amber color with a thin head that doesn’t stick around. Mildy tart aroma with big apple notes. The taste is tart, much like apples again, some citrus and a faint mustiness. Medium bodied.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (marked as bottled 8.6.10) thanks to LtDan. Pours with a huge white head and a clear (until the last pour) orange body. Aroma is floral and vinous, spicy wine notes, currants, alcohol, cedar and wood. Flavor has a strong lactic sourness. Acidic, with apple cider and oak. Tons of lacto. Lively bubbles, dry and acidic but also EXTREMELY thin. Reminds me a lot of an oak and lacto cider I made; sour and refreshing but with no body.
