750, corked and strung. Thanks, A & E! You guys are awesome. What a great treat. Pours a murky medium amber with bright golden blond edges and a dense and creamy platinum blond head that starts out as a gigantic PITA and never really goes away. You’re constantly dealing with huge cotton balls of lace and an endless supply of head that endless threatens to geyser over the top of the glass if you’re not careful with the pour. Big tart swanky nose, lots of lemon, some basement, strawberries, some egg yolk...this cat just flat knows how to get parallel lines to fall into patterns like railroad tracks. The aromatics bundle together in a harmonious sequence of fairly disparate qualities that end up being much more interesting together. Creamy medium body with boundlessly lively carb. Tart caramel, lemon, basement, strawberries, moss, egg yolk, and mineral dryness on the mid palate. The mineral notes assert more near the end, along with the strawberries, leaving the swallow and the follow a nice cling of berries and rocks. This is a wonderful beer and I should drink it all the fucking time.

mcberko (6441) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma of pineapple, brett, a little funk, and some slightly tart notes. Flavour is very complex, bringing out notes of brett, pineapple, Belgian yeast and some farmhouse notes. Uber complex, with the pineapple notes adding a wonderful dimension on of the bretty, funky body. Wonderful depth, with very lively carbonation, which is perfectly fitting. A most excellent fruity bretty wild ale.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Lemony yellow with a bubbly robust head. Zesty citrus aroma, with big flavours of pineapple and guava. Light funk, lightly lactic, with a creamy mouthfeel. So crazy good!

pintbypint (2603) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
RBAG 2013, from a bottle with a sting holding the cork in (!?) Lemony yellow and hazy in the glass. The head is white and small, not long lasting. Nose has citrus/orange and some fruitiness (pineapple maybe?). Tastes a bit sour with white wine acidity, some fruity notes and mild funk. Light finish with a little bit of barrel character. Effervescent and generally enjoyable.

Ferris (4166) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle - Candied pineapple, lemon and barnyard funk. Cloudy yellow with a rich white head. Pineapple and tropical fruit with some coriander, no sourness which is expected from the smell. The grapes from the barrel give it an additional depth. Very neat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a hazy golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. On the nose its sweet with lots of fruit notes, peach, lemon, pineapple, candied oranges, smarties candy, tree sap, grass... lots going on here just a bit overwhelming. The palate is complex but a touch disjointed... one end is a lot of the sweet fruit and tart candied smarties.. the other end is funky brett, sappy spruce and pine. Complex and interesting but lacking a bit of harmony when all is said and done.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle shared at Richard’s Graduation Party (Western Springs, IL). Thanks, guys! Pours a rich hazy golden pour, touch of darkness, rich haziness, frothy whitish head atop laces ok. Thicker film laces well. Aromas are fruity, firm estery pear, banana, and apple. Sour gentle tartness, funk is rich, mellow oak and funky brett. Initial is fairly fruity, apple and pear, some funk and gentle tartness. Some oak, straw, funk. Some dryness, apple, and tartness. More fruity front end leads to a mellow straw, gentle grass presence. Backend is tartness, mellow presence, some gentle funk, lactic element. A gentle sour, fairly fruity and estery. Nice funk, but young. Tasty.
