Bottle from woodshop 5.1. Pours reddish brown with no head. Nose is sweet and funky. Taste is tart sour and nicely funky. Pretty nice overall. Best sam adams Ive had in a long while.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy orangish red body with a small white head. Aroma of wood, raisins, plums, and light horseblanket. Flavor of raisins, old wooden barrel, earth, musty, caramel, somewhat dirty, and cheese.

Tap Night of Funk. Reddish/gplden pour with stong strong aroma of mustyness is the best descripton. Definite barrel age taste with hints of sour vanilla. It was odd. I did not hate it, it was interesting.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Tap at Night of the Funk. Another sour flop from Sam Adams. Believe it or not they nailed one that was at this fest though, the 6 year old (!) unblended lambic, but that isnt the beer in question here. This one poured gold (huh?) with an oaky, buttery, light vanilla nose. Notes of grilled cheese/American cheese confuse my palate. The weird savory balance really throws this one off. It is actually decently close to an Oud Bruin in a weird way but theyve still got a lot of work to do on this one. More sour, less, err, grilled cheese.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 17, 2009
sample at NotF. Pours a red syrupy note with no head. Nose is pungent, very strong and musty. Palate is smooth and syrupy. FLavors of light biscuit and toast, the brett leaves a cheesey note and its very sour and overwhelming in the mouth.
