375ml bottle from davecooks, barrel PH1, huge thanks Dave. Rating #203. Pours orangish/gold and a little hazy (drinking the bottom of the bottle).Sour aroma and a bit funky and fruity. Light tart flavor and a little more fruitiness, very tasty and surprisingly drinkable. (1137)

Bottle at woodshop 5.0 Not sure who poured it. Aroma is fruity and tart. Woody and light oxidation...but not in a bad way. Flavor is sour, but not mouth puckering. Fruit is still there, oak is still showing. Awesome beer to try.

dogfish120love (980) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Extreme Beer Fest 2010. Pours a pale yellow and almost clear. The aroma consists of a huge brett smell, grass and funk. This beer is extremely dry and as sour as they come. Quite possibly the best beer I have tasted to date.

Hophead22s tasting. Pours a hazy orange with a white film. Aroma is tart fruits and a bit of funk. Flavor is a sharp bitterness with some funk and a fruity spiciness. Palate is light and carbonation is low.

Bottle (Batch 001- PH1) from Amorphosis. Pours clear golden with thin white head. strong tart and funky aroma almost gueuze like. Lots of apple and lemon sourness with oaky notes. Open on new year and that was quite a treat! Thnaks Peter!.

Bottle, April 2008 tasting. Thanks to Phil L for providing. Rather muddy yellow appearance (I probably got my sample from near the end of the bottle). Not sure whether this was the standard or PH1 batch. Good and sour. Moderately funky aroma. Quite citric tart acidity on the palate. More lambic than Flemish sour in feel, probably because the underlying beer is a blonde not a bruin. Faint echoes of Cantillon here. Very good.

PH1 Bottle, thanks Nathan for opening this rare gem and sharing with me!
Warm gold, noisy off-white head. Generous funk that starts well before the glass makes it up to my nose. Leathery tobacco barn chock full of crab apples and a briny seaweed bite. Loads of dry lemony sourness, but for all the volume of sour, the quality of it is gentle and inviting. Pepper, salt, hay, dry weathered wool. So much happy goodness in a glass. Some sour beers (even ones I end up liking) require such a serious face to appreciate: the pleasures are shaken from a wrath-bearing tree. Not so here. Everything is just...beautiful.
