UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Much thanks to grassrootsvt for this hand bottled brew from December of ’05... Appears a hazy amber with a small off-white head that leaves sollid amounts of scattered lacing around the glass. Smell is leathery with mild berries, Belgian yeast with some mild brett, citrusy sourness, and horseblanket in there. Taste is of the above mentioned aromas with a sourdough likeeability in there. Mouthfeel is mildly sour in a DeDolle Teve Reserva sort of way with some oak and yeasty goodness in there with a semi sweetness.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2006
Sampled back in Feb. Poured dark cherry red with a small white head. The nose was sweet/tart cherries, oak, bread, with some barny undertones. Starts off a bit tart with mostly cherries and slight citrus, mellowing a little as the malts and the (somewhat odd) yeast flavors become more prevailant.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2006
Golden amber ale with a thin white head. Light horseblanket in aroma, and ground cherries. Light sweet malt, with some phenolic/solvent notes, and light cherries. Smooth in mouth, medium bodied. At EBF 2006.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 13, 2006
Tulip glass at the brewpub, late January 2006. Deep brick-dried blood red, near-opaque with faintly visible flecks of yeast, thin lasting creamy head....nose is stunningly complex, cherry and various berries vying with loads of oaky vanilla, touches of caramel, rosemary, and sour bready yeast....it alternates between sour, almost brett character and thick English maltiness, just amazing....alas it doesn’t quite hold up in the body, quite sweet but somewhat tangy with a growing late sourness, nice....but sharp mineralic-lactic qualities are a bit too much, and the thick sugary mouthfeel makes for a rather syrupy, cloying midpalate....somewhat drier towards the finish, and bitter chocolate helps cut the sweetness....close, but not quite the great beer it could have been. Still quite fascinating and an obvious sign of talent and creativity.
