COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the tradition of the Lambics of Belgium but using a blend of Ale Yeast, Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, and Acetobacter. These microorganisms came from our culture collection as well as many collected by Dan around the wilds of Wisconsin! Fermented and aged in Oak. This beer spent the summer of 2009 aging outdoors in used oak barrels. Then bottle fermented. This is a funky and very sour beer not for the faint of heart. If you are unfamiliar with sour or Brettanomyces beers you may want to pass this one up!

Pours a golden yellow color, nose is tart and citrus, taste is quite sour, sharp bite, a little too much cider character and diacytle, but overall really nice.

Rating #3500!
Pours golden with a decent head and some nice lacing on the glass.

The atom aid odd, sort of funky with some red apple and spice.. Itís got a nice funkiness and some wet limestone things going on. Itís weird, but itís weird in a good way.

The flavor is dry with a good lemony flavor, some peaches and a nice all around sourness. The beer has a little bit of nuttiness and a little bit of brine.

I really wish I could have tried one of these when it was fresh, because it seems to have aged into something very unique and special.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small white head. The aroma is rubber, band aids, feet, funk. Thin mouthfeel with sour fruit, nice tartness, very funky, strong brett, really enjoyed this one.

Tasting at Jackís RAH Annexe! Thanks to Bruce. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Good typical gueuze sourness, wet wood, and lemon but this is a tad on the acid side. Some balance brought by sweet vanilla oak. Light dry finish. Not bad.

Sammy (9447) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Just passed fourth birthday. Mellow geuze that builds in sourness on palate. Smells like an American funky beer. Some apple juice but smooth. Still carbonated and a bit of white head on deep yellow, leaving lace.

Lukaduke (2661) - Gray, Maine, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a rich golden almost copper color with a finger of gaseous foam that settles out quickly. Interesting brew with some cheesy funk, caramel sweetness and layers of funky stonefruit, sawdust, ginger ale, toasted vanilla, wet wood, and funky acidity. A bit more rounder and less dry than expected but an interesting beer either way.

Bottle at Chateau Jackl, big thanks to Bruce for this íRí production, 13/08/14. Lightly hazed orange amber with moderate off white edgework. Nose is cheesey puff biscuits, lemon rind, straw, oaky vanilla notes, tarte citrics. Taste comprises lemon zest, straw, light parmesan notes, tangy citric tinged straw, orange pithdom, light funk, grassy, Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Ok I guess but a little on the cheesey side!

Leighton (13842) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Bruce. Pours rich gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds Italian cheeses, some caramel, dank citrus fruits. Light flavor with some spices, old berries, bit more cheese, old caramel, candied sugars, some herbs. Medium bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Finishes sweet with some acetic twang, bready sugars, subtle cheese, berries, faint caramel. Interesting.

Bottle. Cheers to Bruce (I think). Gold with a small head. Loads of parmesan funk. Little else. The taste is quite acetic. Cheese and used socks. Smoked herb. Lemon. Light body, soft carb. The cheese is overpowering.
