1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle pour from Bacterial...thanks Jeff! (I think....maybe? Sorta? Batch 31, so I donít know what I expected...) Pour is a clear light purple, with a light blue head that fades quickly to no lacing. This is a straight up cheese bomb. Parm, asiago, every aged italian cheese I have ever had just blended up and shoved in a glass. Just HUGE funky lacto cheese/yogurt/fermented milk. Front palate is much the same, then it opens up to some much nicer lactic tartness with a nice berry finish. The end of this beer lets me know what they were trying to go for here...but dear god! The funky, sweaty, raunchy aged cheese in the aroma and early taste just destroy this beer for me. Honestly, I can see why they recalled this, and I hope that it has aged to what it is now, rather than it being released in this state.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Bottle: new batch, much better than the first I had. Ruby red grapefruit body, quick fading white head. Musty, damp aroma with some lemon acidity and very light blueberry. Flavor has a little blueberry, some fruit skin acidity, light tartness and a dry, musky finish. Yes, this has improved quite a bit since the last batch.

First sampled a vile, infected batch of this that was barely drinkable - dominated by acidic parmesan cheese. Thankfully, the next batch was much more drinkable. A nice sour ale with balanced acidity and fruit notes with a dry, puckering finish. Beware though, if you happen to try the infected batch, itís worth giving this another chance.

Ah, the blue lady. Mild gusher, pours a medium reddish color. Nose is very intense bile and bad cheese. The palate is mildly tart, with lemon and bile flavors. The smell of this beer cleared the room.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with friends. Pours a light blue color, slightly hazy. Aroma is a weird mix of blueberries, blue cheese and sour funk. Though that combo seemed a bit odd to me it didnít really take away from the drinking experience, as I went back from 2ndís. Nice solid beer!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very thin body with a head that recedes to nothing instantly. Bretty aromas with a mouthfeel that follws in slight barnyard sourness. Very crisp, dry. Sessionable. A light funky brunch with blueberry pancakes and blueberry Berliner Weisse

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
WOW! Smells like the trash can at a Blue Cheese Eating Competition. Straight up stinky cheese, vomit, sour milk, poop, and gym socks. First time a beer has ever made me gag from a smell. Taste had a tinge of berry and lemon that were immediately CRUSHED by gag inducing vomity cheese. This beer is an atrocity on epic proportions. Just now seeing that they actually recalled it which is a very good thing. How anyone that has had batch 31 can rate it higher then macro lagers is completely insane. My kitchen drain still stinks this morning have DPíing this thing and then pouring liquid plumber down it.
