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. Youíre 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 youíre 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.

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 canít put my finger on. Thanks to Ryan for sharing!

750mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear straw with weak white foam. Tangy citrus nose with lemongrass, spice, candied ginger, anise, butterscotch, buttercream frosting on carrot cake, rum flambeed bananas. Geez. Taste is tangy, salty, doughy. Very soft and sweaty. I really like this. Soft, funky, quenching and complex. House yeast strain has a lot of potential. My rating: 4.1 Fiancé rating: 3.9 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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%+.

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. Thereís 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. Itís my second beer from this brewery (the other was La Tache) and Iím really impressed. I will definitely look for their other beers!

Bottle shared by thebitterendaz. Hazy yellow pour with light herbal and citrus aroma notes. Flavor starts out slightly tart with notes of wine barrel, lemon and pear, then gradually finish to a more funky, spiced finish. Really drinks like a 1/2 gueuze, 1/2 farmhouse beer. ABV is very well hidden - so crisp and easy drinking.

Bottle thanks to Diego. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong oak, wine, and yeast. Thick mouthfeel with fruit and light oak with nice dry finish. Really enjoyed this one.
