750 ml bottle to stemmed taster (shared by GAbell). Looks good; a cloudy dark apricot with very light caramel head. Smells good too; tart and funky with some fruit as well. Tastes like it smells with a semi-dry finish. Great stuff!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared with the crew as part of BA Cake mega trade year 2. Very acidic and tart. Incredible nose with a lot of fruit, mainly peach. High on the sour spectrum with some fruit agian in the flavors. As it warms the fruit, pear, lemon, peach, apricot come out a little more. Big and bold and really one of a kind.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with the crew at BSP. My first Side Project so fairly pumped. The aroma is damn near a 10 for me - funky, barnyard, peachy, white grapes, musty. The taste lends similar characteristics, but leans too much on the acidic side, so much that it takes away from some of the complexity of the various barrel aged beers in the mixture. Still quite good and will be excited to try more.

Bottle (750 ml). Shared byy Adam, thanks! Cloudy orange/amber with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of vanilla, wood, red fruits, brett, caramel and light spiciness. Taste is also of vanilla, lots of wood, red fruits, brettanomyces, caramel and vinegar notes. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Acidic finish. A bit too heavy for my liking. Some acetone (?) too. Still pretty tasty.
