Thanks to Darrell for sharing. Also huge thanks to boralyl for getting me out a bottle of this. Bottled Novemver 9, 2012. Pours a lightly cloudy light straw color. Nice fluffy head with good retention. The nose contains light sulfur, cheese, wheat, and hay. Some backing lemon and other faint citrus. Really extraordinarily complex and interesting. The flavor ups the lemon and brings really integrates everything beautifully. Acidity is a fantastic component in the background without being too heavy. A bit of backing wine with a touch of pepper and phenols. Absolutely fantastic. I’m blown away by this beer.

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

Une brute d’assemblage (la bouteille indique 11.03%) avec un brett bien cuiré et gras comme j’aime mais avec un côté vineux vraiment tranchant. Des zest de lime et de citron envahissent la zone de dégustation. J’aurais aimé un corps moins actif mais les saveurs et l’alcool sont si bien intégrés que ça jamais été un facteur de dépréciation.

750 ml bottle, batch October 18 2013- Pours slightly hazy golden on the first pour with a foamy two finger white head that slowly reduces but never quite goes away and nice sheeting lace. Aroma is pungent, citrusy, tart, wet basement, brett. The taste lives up to the aroma, funky bretty goodness, yeasty, not as tart as the aroma led on, not sure which type of wine barrels they used, but I would hope it was something like sauvignon blanc, but I could be way off on that. Body is medium and carbonation is high. Very much enjoyed this massively complex brew.

750 ml corked bottle. Bottled 10/18/13; 10.24% ABV. Aroma is bretty, vinegar, lemon, earth, light wood, fan-freaking-tastic. Pours hazy golden with a two-finger white head with decent retention. Taste is lightly sweet, sour (6/10 on a sour scale), finishing savory. Nice sauvignon blanc character, along with some green apple, peach. Not quite champagne-like in effervescence, but quite highly carbonated. Very different and unique.

750ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with a lot of fine frothy head. Mild sourness balanced with some sweetness, belgian yeast and fruity flavors.

Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Yellow, light gold in color, a little hazy, pretty high level of carbonation. The head of the beer fades fast and is mostly due to the high carb. A good level of sourness but not completely over powering. Citrusy, tart with earthy oak undertones. Overall this is a extremely good and balanced

This is batch 2, bottled 27SEP12 ABV 10.54% Pours a light straw yellow with a fine white sheet. Nose orgy. So, I’ve never had sex in my nose, but this is like being educated by someone well adapted to teaching different angles, speeds, depths, etc. So, up front, the manure funk, nice something I can’t finger - maybe a bit of anise/wormwood character with a bit of soaked wood. Super complex nose. A nice farm character, really deep character. There’s a good fantome, hill farmstead depth to this beer. Thin bodied with a fine, velvety carb and an ambitiously intriguing finish. Kinda dry, kinda cloying. There is a touch of sweetness. Certainly this is a wild ale, but not in the "traditional" sense - really insane, not tart/sour like most expect. If you though BRUX was fun and interesting, this will blow your goddam cranium to pieces. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2012

Bottle from a trade with a friend. Shared with Dan and Sean at the Pig. Pours a lovely yellowish-gold with just a tinge of haze. Small white head formed and lasted with nice varied lacing. Aroma was fruits like white grapes, pears, peaches and nectarines. Also a slight funky-bretty aroma as well. The taste was so damned good. All of the fruits on the nose come through nicely and well balanced. The mild funk and tartness from the wild yeasts hit you on the finish. Modestly dry finish and light body overall. I loved it!!

This sour, the forst beer I’ve tried from AA, started really good and just got better and better. Nearly 10% abv was not detected at all, and the carbonation level and mouthfeel were soft and perfect for this beer. The aroma and flavor were cheesy funky, slightly sweet, oaky, vinous, and complex as all get out. Got better and better as it opened up. Expensive, but worth it.
