Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with cat litter notes is quite interesting. Taste is also dominated by some rustic malt notes with funky ester and some cat’s litter notes that are quite powerful. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed this beer with quite a bit of complexity while retaining super great drinkability.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Fruity and lightly yeasty, with a wheaty base, and some citric acidity lasting through the finish. Nice.

Travlr (11145) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Clear pale yellow color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of dusty hay and straw. Taste is funky and slightly sour grapefruit and lemon. Tasty.

_angst_ (2740) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours hazy yellow with a frothy and fizzy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sour, funky and fruity with crackers, pink grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, yuzu juice, gooseberries, hay, dry soil, minerals, barnyard, unflavoured yoghurt and lemon zest. Taste is sour, tiny fruity and tiny funky with crackers, lemon juice, yuzu juice, minerals, hay, dry soil, lemon zest and hints of sourcream. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, tart, slightly mouth-puckering and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour, tiny fruity and slightly funky with crackers, grapefruit juice, lime juice, yuzu juice, gooseberries, hay, dry soil, barnyard, unflavoured yoghurt and lemon zest. Tasty but another Prairie beer that sports a great complex funky smell that is drenched in citric and lactic acidity in the taste.

SlovakSniper (3118) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
50 cl. Robe embrouillée dans les teintes de jaune. Tête blanchâtre diminutive. Arômes de ferme, de citron, de chêne mangé par des champignons, de bretts, de fruits blancs et assez pâles et de yaourt nature. Saveurs de vin blanc et de levures touchées par un fruité acide et poivré. Bouche un peu molle avec une texture mince voire même aqueuse. Finale fermière, sèche, très boisée. Facile à boire mais loin du spectaculaire.

cfrancis (2331) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours cloudy light gold with medium white foam. Aroma is peppery, wheat, slight tartness and slight wood. Taste is slight tartness, pepper, yeast and farmy. Great beer although if it didn’t say aged in oak, I probably wouldn’t have guess. Not terribly prevalent except for the developing funk.

Salmoniform (567) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy straw hue with fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is straw, peppercorn, earthy, grass. Mouthfeel is great with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy dry finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

John25 (466) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow. Musty funk with light bitterness. Smooth and light. Sour tartness but very subtle, not overpowering. Perfect yeast element and balance. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

conway (1397) - - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle. Light hazy gold with almost no head. Almost like lemonade. Aroma is funky citrus and some oaky sweetness. Taste follows suit and is slightly woody as well. Medium crisp mouthfeel. Outstanding.
