MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2014
hazy gold, thin white ring. Lightly buteric nose, tons of grapefruit and white wine, faintly woody. Lightly sweet white wine front reminiscent of Southampton peconic, fizzy with moderate wheat with more citrus through the blurry end, too much sweetness and carbonation.

solidfunk (4979) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2014
One of the highlights of the Epic Sour Tasting. Pours cloudy orange with great head and lacing. Coriander, some Belgian yeast. Some apple, finishes a little sweet with a little sourness. Really tastes like a Belgian strong, or quad, with some sourness. Citrus, good balance. Bottle thanks to Mr. Chopin at Epic Sour Tasting.

Big thanks to that jerk MrChopin for bringing this to the tasting! Mostly clear golden pour, small fizzy head. Really great apricot, earthy cheesecloth, woody zippiness, drying citrus to counteract, in part, the higher alcohol. Booze well hidden. I’m down with it.

adnielsen (10028) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
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.

Thanks Writerjberg Pours a hazy straw color with a big white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma of light oak, white grape, hint of funk. Some white wine and some sweet brandy taste, grape and apricot flavors mixed with some oak and funk. Medium body medium to high carbonation.
