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%+.

markextrae (3716) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2015
bottle shared at our tasting. poured a hazy nice deep golden pour with a nice white head. nose is really more of a saison than a sour ale. can’t detect the high abv in this one, not in the nose or taste. nose has a nice funky farmhouse aroma, malts, grains, nice hints of sour lemons, oak, grape, vineous wine barrels, stone fruits, funk, funky spice brett. really awesome in the nose! taste has all the funk that was in the nose. freshly stone fruits, white wine, funky brett, nice dry and tart, perfectly balanced. very full mouthfeel. with no alcohol notice. from wich i was pretty afraid of before. this beer was really phenomenal. really awesome! should be really ranked higher! delecious

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2016 750mL shared by dice. Bottled sometime in 2014, the rest of the numbers have been rubbed away. Abv is 9.45. Pours dark golden with medium head. Aroma is strong with spikey esters, some light pear, wild flurries, berries. Flavor is too sweet for the beer, not super sweet but the context for this beer is off. Some light sweet apple juice with light tartness. Cool beer but too sweet. Rerate. October 2015 bottle. Sweet, lightly fecal aroma. Brett and fruitiness messing around, some sweetness, light herbal character. Lots going on. Flavor has some cider, too sweet for style. Mostly cidery and sweet, hiding the funk and brett. Still too sweet and still to appley.

Huhzubendah (3443) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Batch Nov 09 2012 10.78 alc vol The beer is light golden with a small, fizzy white head. The aroma offers lemons, wild yeast, grass, funk. Herbal and earthy tones with a delicate sweetness balanced by a light funk. Highly drinkable and really smooth on the palate. This one is a sleeper. Light spice quality. Beautiful balance and so easy to drink. Where is the alcohol presence? Masterfully hidden. A truly fabulous beer.

jrob21 (3405) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle shared at HMOG and paired with a more recent bottling. The newer bottle has a little more funk in the aroma but the flavor is too similar still for me to tell a difference. Light grape and wine flavors. Medium funkiness. Well rounded and tasty.

50belair (3341) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a big white head. Mild citrus and barrel aromas. Mildly sour with lemon zest, citrus, pear, and white grape vinous highlights. Mild caramel malt, oak, and vinegar low lights. Not overly complex or tart. Tasty and easy sippin’. A bit on the effervescent side.

pintbypint (3327) - 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.
