Bottle at Culmination Fest: Poured an orange with a white colored head. Aroma was citrus sour fruit. Taste was sappy fruit with a wine like character.

joeneugs (3817) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Generously shared by Harpreet at the Livermore Saloon. Thanks! It pours a hazy light gold color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is full of moldy peaches and light farty funk. There’s some breadiness in there with wood, white wine and citric acid. The flavor has light, sweet tangerines, tropical fruit, sauvignon blanc grapes and spicy, funky brett in the finish. It’s only lightly sour with a full body and creamy mouthfeel. I wasn’t into the fecal heavy aroma, but the flavors and mouthfeel were superb. Really nice sour.

Cybercat (3784) - Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Pours hazy golden, thin whitish head. Aroma is strongly fruity, citrus and grape mainly. Flavor echoes the fruit notes of the aroma and throws in a bit of malt. Texture has average thickness and fizz, but it goes down well.

tom10101 (3577) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy yellow with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is very lemon/lime forward and reminds me of the Barrel-Aged Flora Rustica that I drank a couple of weeks ago. There’s also winey notes, oak, brettanomyces, yeast and light spices. Taste is also mainly of lemon/lime along with wine, oak, light vanilla, brettanomyces and light spices. Nice citric/acidic touch. Alcohol is very well hidden (our bottle said 11,03% abv). Medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish. Very good lemon/lime forward golden ale. The wine barrel give this beer a couple layers of complexity. Really drinkable, especially considering the high abv. It’s my second beer from this brewery (the other was La Tache) and I’m really impressed. I will definitely look for their other beers!

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 2, 2012
hazy gold, wispy cream head, small bubbled ring. Lightly fusel, very dry and floral, hay and grass. Flavor cleaner, light lemon peel, grass, light ester sweetness, finish is dry and toasty, lightly resinous hops. Bit flat finish, off notes mar an otherwise great first effort.

AdamJackson (3319) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle at home, paid $27 at the local beer store here in Vermont. Crisp apple juice looking almost chardonay beer. nose is grapey, vinous and sweet. Taste is crisp and earthy. mild bitterness, almost like tangerine. Then it’s followed by fresh cut apples. very interesting and I’d have it again if the price were a bit lower.

Steve_0 (3164) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle at home with friends. Pour is somewhat hazy golden with a white head that quickly dissipated. Funky, urine, fruity, pineapple, green apples, pears, woody, white wine, and lemon peel in the aroma. Taste is moderately tart, lemon, urine, horseblanket, somewhat doughy, pineapple, mango, white grapes, a touch of bread, and honey with a lightly sour finish. Light body with high carbonation. Light, funky, easy-drinking, and tart, hard to believe its 10%+.

tectactoe (2944) - Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle: Thanks, Steve. Cloudy bright yellow body. Chunky white head crackles & fades quick. Huge bretty aroma; dusty cotton, wood, funky white pepper, musk, old pineapple, cobweb, mild mineral water. Flavor of light mango, pineapple, dusty cotton & moldy barnyard funk. Woody, loaded with Brett, hay, & mild horsey notes. A small touch of vinous white grape in the finish. Super effervescent mouth feel, lofty & prickly. Good stuff.
