Bottle pour, thanks Brad. Hazy straw color, small white head. Subtle musty lemon aroma, big floral notes. Tastes a lot different than it smells, fairly sweet, a bit fruity and a hint tart. Undercarbonated.

Bouteille 750ml titrant à 11,03% d’alcool. De couleur dorée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (raisins verts aux petites notes vineuses, léger d’agrumes, traces de pêches et de pommes), légèrement sauvages aux petites notes rustiques, terreuses et épicées (poivre doux), moyennement boisé (bois humide, léger fût de chêne vineux), léger de houblon herbeux aux notes florales avec des traces de pain. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et légèrement croustillant ainsi qu’une texture aux notes huileuses et vineuses. Goût de levures fruitées moyennement acides aux petites notes sûres (agrumes, surtout de citron et de son zeste, léger de raisins verts vineux, notes de pommes, traces de pêches et de poires), légèrement sauvages, rustiques, terreuses et épicées (poivre doux) avec un léger goût boisé (fût vineux, traces de bois humide) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de pain avec des notes de céréales sucrées et quelques traces de miel. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool réchauffant jusqu’en finale où s’y développe une légère amertume asséchante de houblon floral, herbeux et aux faibles notes citriques. Post-goût moyen et léger-moyen sec, composé d’un goût de levures fruitées légèrement acides (zeste de citron, notes de pamplemousse et de pelures de fruits verts) avec un léger goût boisé (fût vineux), une légèrement amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et citriques ainsi qu’avec un léger goût d’alcool et quelques traces d’épices (poivrées).

Extremely nice surprise, thanks to friend from OR. Honestly I was not expecting this beer to be this complex: Nice aroma - bread, funk, lime, wild yeast, pours a nice golden clear beer with a solid head, taste is where this baby takes off - extremely complex with lots of funk, fruits, earth, and some bitterness! Highly impressed, too bad I can’t get any more for some time..

Sarlacc83 (1342) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 7, 2013
750ml bottle from Belmont Station. A: Cloudy orange color with a half inch of firm white head. A slight glass stain for legs. N: Lemon, grapefruit, straw, horse blanket, and ample oak. Candied oranges. Wine is pronounced with the vinous white grape, some melon and apricot. Esters. This is very inviting. T: Mixture of sourness, oak, and a back end malt which rounds out the flavors. Balanced and delicate without sacrificing intensity. M: Full, well-carbonated, and smooth. O: I’m going to load up on bottles of this. Really, really nice stuff. Bravo.

750ml bottle pours a hazy gold with some frothy white head. Nose is herbal, tart, lavender, dusty, flower pollen, white grape, white peach, fresh squeezed orange juice. Flavor is really heavy with unripened peaches, kumquats, orange juice, lemon zest, herbal, lavender, white grape, light wood shaving. Lightly sweet, otherwise herbal finish. Very nice. Well crafted.

Thanks to Darrell for sharing. Also huge thanks to boralyl for getting me out a bottle of this. Bottled Novemver 9, 2012. Pours a lightly cloudy light straw color. Nice fluffy head with good retention. The nose contains light sulfur, cheese, wheat, and hay. Some backing lemon and other faint citrus. Really extraordinarily complex and interesting. The flavor ups the lemon and brings really integrates everything beautifully. Acidity is a fantastic component in the background without being too heavy. A bit of backing wine with a touch of pepper and phenols. Absolutely fantastic. I’m blown away by this beer.

Batch Nov 09 2012 10.78 alc vol The beer is light golden with a small, fizzy white head. The aroma offers lemons, wild yeast, grass, funk. Herbal and earthy tones with a delicate sweetness balanced by a light funk. Highly drinkable and really smooth on the palate. This one is a sleeper. Light spice quality. Beautiful balance and so easy to drink. Where is the alcohol presence? Masterfully hidden. A truly fabulous beer.

Leighton (13855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Bruce for this obscurity. Pours cloudy yellow with a fine, white cream head. Citric lemon character with sweat, some hints of boozy heat, pee. Tangy. Medium to full bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Hot and tangy to finish with farmyard, acidic and stinging lemon. Hefty stuff. Decent, but a bit too hot and heavy overall.
