Pour out of 750 ml bottle, thanks Stephen! Hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, oak brandy, earth, slight white grape, hints of grain, slight yeast. Taste is a mix of dough, yeast, grass, some peach, pear, white grape, slight grainy notes, finishing fairly sweet. Nice.

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. Poured a hazy orange color with a wispy head. Aroma is some light citrus notes. Light sugary, tart. Enjoyable.

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.

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.

Bottle at Culmination Fest: Poured a orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was sour citrus fruit. Taste came on strong with sour bitter tart citrus fruit, but finished with a fresh grain pop at the end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home with friends. Pour is clear yellow with a small white head and decent lacing. Funky, lemony, vanilla, light urine, biscuit, hay, grassy, and doughy aroma. Taste is sweet lemons, biscuit, orange juice, grass, biscuit notes, tangy, and floral with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Not bad but kind of different.
