4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared with biegaman, blankboy, tupalev & HogTownHarry - courtesy of biegaman. Hazy light golden-orange with a decent white head. Aroma is citric and spicey with a nice dry funkiness. Body is on the thin side, but very crisp, working well with the flavour which is dry and tart, with notes of lemon, pepper and yeast. Very, very nice!

Bottle (750ml batch 002). Shared with biegaman, blankboy, GregClow and tupalev, biegamanís bottle. Murky orange, large white head. Dry sharp peppery spice aroma, sweet spicy malt, herbal hops, gets even more sour and funky on warming - yumm. Taste - sour lemon, spice, funky yeast, sweet juicy malt - goddamn thatís a fine beer. Decent body, complex mouthfeel - lovely. Right up there, I liked it better than the Fantomeís Iíve had.

Apperance was a hazy dark yellow. Aromas of yeast and horseblanket. Taste was sour with some light fruit, and yeast as well. Very solid mouthfeel.

bottle that TAR shared. thanks, jeff.
clouded yellow bordering on orange. aroma-wow- funky, brett with an egg and lactose scent to it. sweaty non-fda approved greatness. like a mare having a foal with someone burning some sterno fuel. wow!
band aid and grape kool aid at first taste. this sounds bad, & the band aid is, once i sink beyond that with each sip & it gets better until it is amazing. pear, sour apple sherbert, carpet fresh deodorizer, pommegranates. take all the shit that can be considered a flaw and make it good, in the middle of my notes is this "BRFHastiz" donít know what that means, but i figured iíd throw it in there in case itís important.

This is an extremely sour beer, as I expected from this brewery, and it went great with a variety of mild and stinky cheeses alike! Cloudy, dark yellow body, with a big, foamy head. Very sour, yeasty aroma, with some floral notes. The flavor is ever-so-slightly fruity, but it doesnít stand out as a particularly complex beer. Pleasant, woody finish.

Lactic sour nose with that wonderful bret barnyard coming thru loud and clear. Beautiful color reminiscent of spun gold. White fruit notes are ever prominent and balanced by the mouth watering bret characters. I love the delicate lace like body of this beer.

Good wild ale, itís in your face initially, then you get used to it, in a lemon yeasty haze. Good lacing and head. Satisfying aftertaste.Thanks Solomon420.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to ross! - very cloudy golden pour, and quite foamy at that - probably the most authentic, earthy, funky belgian aroma Iíve smelled from an american-made beer - sour? you bet, but still not as sour as I was expecting - the Cantillon comparisons are justified - this tastes very much like some of their geuezes - slight wheaty flavors and some white grapes - I didnít find this as complex as some others - there wasnít as much going on beneath the sourness as I had hoped there would be.

(Bottle) Pours hazy orange. Citric, acid, woody aroma with some hints of pine and vinegar. Fruits and lemon. Sour, acid flavour with fresh broken wood. Unsweetend fruit. No ligering aftertaste. Dry. Ok body.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge thanks to FlacoAlto for this one. Pours turbid deep golden with big, fluffy white head. Aroma of heavy Bretty funk, floral spice, citrus, and hops. Tastes very tart, with a big Bretty and lactic flavor, plus citrus, some apricotty fruit, peach, Bartlett pear, and spicy, peppery, and floral hints. Complex palate. Not as tart as a Cantillon, but close, although this one has more flavor depth that the Cantillons Iíve had.
