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 (3793) - 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 (2113) - 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 (5672) - 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.

Musty, fruity, soem tartness, wine barrels add a bit of tannic oak and soem vinous notes.

Steasy66 (861) - Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2013
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).
