UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Bottle... RBSG 2014... This beer rocks!... Hazy straw-colored ale with no head. Both the aroma and flavor are fruity, funky and stoopid acidic. Sour as Hell, bretty and bready. Love it. Awesome, world class beer!

Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a cloudy orange color with an off-white head. The aroma was of dark fruits, some funk, grains and a bit of earthiness. The taste was of tart fruits, yeast, Brett and a nice funkiness. Wow.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Hoppypocket, huge thanks! Pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head that offers good lace on the glass. Nose is of molasse (credits to czar) and rotten fruits, a bit off. Taste is tart and dry, oaky. Flavors are generally fruity but also carries some lightly vegetal and smokey notes. Or maybe it is not smoke but some weird chemical presence? Anyway, screws the experience quite a bit. Light and refreshing, carbonation was on the lower side. Weird and problematic but not totally unenjoyable.

bottle shared by hoppypocket, thanks bro! pours unclear golden-orange with a ncie off-whtie head, some retention and lacing. over-ripened apricots, awkward fruitiness, seven-up, molasses (!), garbage, lemon, oak, spices, wine characteristics, grass and herbs. lively carbonation, light body, tart and grassy-herbal finish. light acidity and overall good mouthfeel. tart apricots. again, awkward and almost repelling fruitiness.
