4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Hazy/murky body capped by a frothy white head that laces sparingly. Funky aroma, lemon and rhibarb, but at the same time floral and inviting. On the palate, perfumey esters lead into very sour lactic territory, again lemon and rhubarb are brought to mind. Quenching dry finish. Delicious.

Pours a nice hazy gold with some slight head. Aroma is funky and slighty dank. Taste is wonderful, really nice balance between tart sourness and quenching. Some amazing aged cheese flavors come through to complete it. A really fantastic ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Backlog review, batch 3 bottle (750mL) tasted 06/25/2011. Pours transparent, golden orange, small head that quickly fades, but gorgeous in the light. Aroma is fresh hay, barnyard funk, floral notes and tropical fruits. Taste is puckering, sour fruits (lime, pineapple), fairly high acidity, oak. Light, smooth body, easy to drink but sheer sourness cuts down on drinkability for me. Overall, pretty good but was expecting more given this brew’s reputation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle at RBAG 2013. Didn’t specifically note the batch but others who were there said batch 005? Pale yellow, hazy, no head. Big tart and sour nose with grapefruit juice and lemon juice. Tastes is same with tart lemon and grapefruit, some yeast. Dries out at the end, finish is long and sour. A very nice sour ale, and I wish we would have had a bigger bottle at the tasting.

Bottle shared by Graham at RBAG 2013, thanks man! If my memory serves me correctly this was batch 5. Golden pour with a bit of white head that dissapates quickly. Smell is loaded with lemons, taste is increadbily sour, with some interesting funk, lots of complexity. A very interesting beer. Really enjoyed this.

Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing a bottle from batch 002 and 005 during his 50th birthday bash. The beer pours a clear bright golden color (progressively cloudier) with a medium frothy white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, citrus and oak. Light-bodied and moderately sour with flavors of funky fruit, yeast and spice. The finish is tart with a bretty yeast aftertaste. Really good all around.
