Beerman6686 (5281) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2014
this one poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of lots of fruit, light vinous notes, some cherries and carmel too. Falvor was tropical fruits, green aple, light funk, some wood, and cherry pie. Pretty uniquie and interesting sour.

poisoneddwarf (1934) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAY 4, 2014
750 ml corked bottle. Bottled 10/18/13; 10.24% ABV. Aroma is bretty, vinegar, lemon, earth, light wood, fan-freaking-tastic. Pours hazy golden with a two-finger white head with decent retention. Taste is lightly sweet, sour (6/10 on a sour scale), finishing savory. Nice sauvignon blanc character, along with some green apple, peach. Not quite champagne-like in effervescence, but quite highly carbonated. Very different and unique.

Nocturne (1134) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
750ml bottle. Pale gold with white foam. Nose is funky, hint of gueuze-like cheese, and has a nice influence from the barrels. Tastes bright, sour, lemon citrussy, honey, again nice wine barrel twang. Hides the 10% well. Lovely classy sour. Really wish I had easy access to their beers.

brenn79 (1708) - Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2014
750 ml bottle, batch October 18 2013- Pours slightly hazy golden on the first pour with a foamy two finger white head that slowly reduces but never quite goes away and nice sheeting lace. Aroma is pungent, citrusy, tart, wet basement, brett. The taste lives up to the aroma, funky bretty goodness, yeasty, not as tart as the aroma led on, not sure which type of wine barrels they used, but I would hope it was something like sauvignon blanc, but I could be way off on that. Body is medium and carbonation is high. Very much enjoyed this massively complex brew.

JK (4918) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2014
At Levi’s tasting. Lots of brett in the aroma. Yellow and very well carbonated with a tall head. Citrus, some sugar, but predominately sour.

Bacterial (2164) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2014
Hazy yellow pour with a thick white head. Grassy and funky nose. Really fun taste. Sweet taste and a bit of a sweet finish. Hints of apple and apricot and other fruits that I can’t put my finger on. Thanks to Ryan for sharing!
