Pour out of 750 mL bottle, pour is slightly hazy orange with thin white head, aroma brought notes of nice funk, brett, nice oak, chardonnay, hints of nice biscuit, bread, slight lemon notes, really nice. Taste is even better, nice biscuit, bread, lemon, nice funky, slight oak, chardonnay/white grape notes, finishing fairly funky, nice grass, hints of grapefruit. Very, very tasty.

Big bottle picked up in Corvallis. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large white head. Deep funky flavors with toast, leaves, lemon. Light tartness, some funk, white wine, vinous at times, fluffy palate, earthy. Caramel and more citrus zest. Really good. Mellow and drinkable but complex. Impressive.

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.

TheAlum (5909) - 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.

Bottle at RBWG grand tasting. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have a tart citrus, mild funk, vinous notes from the wine barrels, grass, additional fruit notes, yeast with some alcohol showing at the finish.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a hazy lemon yellow with white head and a bit of tiny sediment. Smells good too; white wine, oak, funk, and lemon zest. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good stuff!

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.
