Bottle, thanks Colin. Hazy golden with white head. Nice funky aroma, citrus and lambic. Similar taste, funky and citrus. Very light tartness. Very good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a medium cloudy golden color, lots and lots of white head, totally exploded! Aroma heavy on grapes and funk, yeast. Vinous notes as well. Taste of yeasty malty sweetness; body not as much as you might think: lively but not so tart. Finishes with an oaky, toffee sweetness. A lot going on here, very impressive!

750, corked and strung. Yeah, strung. Thanks so much, j&a! You guys are so cool for bringing this back. What an awesome surprise. Pours cloudy medium amber with a dense and sudsy white head. Sweetly vinous brandy nose tucked hand in glove into some fruity and balsamicy sour aromatics. Not quite like anything else. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Vinous, strawberry, and balsamic tang on the mid palate. Nice tart finish. Delicious. Harmonious, unique, flawless, and refreshing. These guys are just flat gettin’ in and gettin’ it.

Bottle from The (new) Beer Stein in Eugene. Aroma is slight brandy, olive, (non-diatectyl) popcorn, and white wine. Flavor is much of the same... more white wine and popcorn comes through. This one isn't crazy sour, but it's an excellent mix of all the above flavors and slightly tart. Excellent beer.

Bottle @ a recent tasting... Poured golden with a little to no head. I was surprised how much brandy came through on this. Low bitterness, subtle yeast spice and funk with wood, fruit, and a spirit cocktail-like character added warming boozy notes. Each sip seemed different as this really opened up. A true pleasure to drink.
