beastiefan2k (2904) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2015
750mL shared by dice. Bottled sometime in 2014, the rest of the numbers have been 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.

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).

Lukaduke (2736) - Gray, 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.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle, thanks to the Boise crew. Peach, stone fruits, grape, earthy, green vegetal. Very well crafted and interesting.

wedgie9 (2513) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours cloudy yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thick lace. The nose is dry sourdough, a touch of lemon peel, and a ton of funky and vinous yeast. The flavor is a bit more tart with gooseberry, lemon, very dry, vinous, and spicy with a touch of lightly sweet Meyer lemon. The body is lactic full with lively but smooth carbonation, and a long tart vinous finish.

mathieuc (2349) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
(Was disturbed during our tasting, will have to re-rate! ;) Pours a hazy yellow with a good white head that leave superior lacing. Aroma of fruits (yellow), hops, brett. Taste is sweet with a good balancing tartness, feeling juicy. Carbonation was good, I believe I downed my glass quite fast (to catch up with the others). Really good altough I’m sure I didn’t enjoy all the subtleties.

Bacterial (2349) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2014
Hazy yellow pour with a thick white head. Grassy and funky nose. Really fun taste. Sweet taste and a bit of a sweet finish. Hints of apple and apricot and other fruits that I can’t put my finger on. Thanks to Ryan for sharing!
