Bottle @ What the Funk Denver 2014. Pours a golden orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Pretty strong aroma. Definitely some cheese and funk in the nose. Plenty of earth as well. Flavor was a bit strong. Some citrus and a lot of barnyard funk. Light cheese / parmesan. Again, kind of strong but kind of fun to drink.

750mL thanks to brainlair. Dry cork broke in the bottle upon opening. Annoying but no problem. Pours a clear golden, lower small white head. Nose is again some of that weird Ale Apothecary house yeast that gives off dill pickle. Pretty uncanny dill pickle. Taste is much sweeter than expected, sticky, white sugar, pretty sticky. Not at all what I was expecting.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Colin Theydon for this one. Pretty hazy gold - amber beer. Little pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, semi dry. Light carbonation. Light seltzer minerals. Nice mango syrup, as if poured from a can of tinned mango. A little fresh orange. Very light sourness and white wine. Whisper of vanilla. Light dry finish. An approachable sour which drinks well below it’s abv.

Bottle shared by Tony. Clear dark yellow pour with a white head. Mandarin orange aromas. Effervescent, with mild mandarin orange and baby aspirin notes. It better than I just made it sound. Tasty, with a good body and mouthfeel.
