Bottle share at Bruce’s birthday drinks craft beer co. Huge thanks to Bruce for that rare treat. Batch #6. Aroma is huge in your face funk, sharp citrus, baby puke, bile. Light hazed yellow straw coloured pour with a small white head. Flavour is crisp lemon, little wheat, funk, horsey, clean sharp lacto, many layers of complexity. Palate is medium full, spritzy carbonation and uber sharp, uber dry I’m the finish. Awesome.

Fantastic sour lemon rind nose with added pear and sour funk aroma. Nice lively carbonation. Flavor of sour tart mango and apple with a backbone of horsey funk. One of best tart brews out there.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Two bottles, sampled side-by-side with OldMrCrow the other night. First, the freshest bottle (2013 batch), thanks to bytemesis for this one. Pours sparkling clear light gold with tons of small bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Aroma brings oak, vinegar, leather, and tons of white wine. Taste is holy wow bracingly tart. Sweet tarts, puckering, almost difficult to drink it’s so tart. Gonna have to take this slow. Lots of grape. Some apple cider. Medium body, slick coating texture, lively carbonation. Overall: This is surprisingly unimpressive (I mean, still quite good, but not 100th percentile good). Over the top sweet tart. Different than the older one by quite a bit, and almost not in the same class. Is this age, or batch variation, or something else entirely? 8/4/7/4/15. (3.8)
Older bottle (batch 2, thanks Carl!): Murky cloudy pour, darker gold, no head, minimal carbonation. Lovely complex gueuze-like nose -- cob webs, rubber, musty basement, cheese, funk - there’s maybe a little oak left, but not much, and also the grapes/wine have receded to nothingness. Taste brings some light sweetness with a really nice funky, fruity tartness. Less residual sugar in this dude, and everything just gels better. Could totally mistake this for one of the Belgians. Medium body, soft carbonation, slick coating texture. Overall: This is lovely. Were texture/appearance a little nicer, this would be 4.3+. 9/3/9/3/17.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy yellow light orange color. Aroma is citrusy, fleshy fruit tartness. Flavor is melt your face tart, light oak, tons or darker citrus. Light to medium body with a magnificent lingering sourness. Oily palate that coats the tongue with sour. Absolutely phenomenal!
