Amber pour, light head. Boozy up front, vinegar, alcohol, yeasty funk. Too much booze in this one.

hopscotch (10601) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with virtually no head – it’s tiny, white and gone in the blink of an eye. The aroma offers phenolic spiciness and a vinous, oaken tanginess. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is lightly tangy, heavily sweet, and presents more yeast-driven spiciness than I am able to enjoy – clove, to be specific. Finishes tangy and a touch too sweet. A solid beer, but not at all my thing. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

adnielsen (10484) - 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.

djd07 (10002) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle thanks to Chow. Pourd a cloudy copper with small beige had that lasts. The aroma is strong brandy, oak, funk. Thin mouthfeel with light booze, grain, funk, sour finish. Very good.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
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.

arminjewell (9251) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2014
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.

sebletitje (9192) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2014
Bouteille 75cl via trade, thanks to Rado_. Actual abv shows 8.73%. Bottled 27/02/2014. Ambrée trouble, col fin blanc-cassé. Arôme est très vinaigré dès l’entrée de jeu sans pour cela sembler surfait, mais ce côté acétique en reste cependant fort présent. Note un rétro nasal de barrique proche d’un vin rouge cuit. Un bouquet malté caramel reste également bien présent. Palais rappelle une vieille brune avec un mélange agréable entre le malté et la barrique et ce profil un peu acidulé,dans ce cas ci aigrelet assez prenant. Le tout laissant penser à un cidre caramélisé accompagné d’une présence fruitée rouge de vin. Seul point faible restant ce profil aigre fort tenace qui aurait été trop gênant sur une bière de plus faible pourcentage d’alcool.

marcus (9133) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle from Haggerty. Pours clear orange copper with absolutely no head and a fruit and vanilla aroma. There is a puckeringly sour fruit flavor with no bitterness. There is a tart finish with a hint of brandy.

b3shine (8106) - Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2014
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a cloudy caramel orange with eggshell head. Smells tart and funky with a nice brandy barrel presence. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant medium-bodied mouthfeel. Great beer, and dangerously drinkable.
