TheAlum (5721) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle shared at Richard’s Graduation Party (Western Springs, IL). Thanks, guys! Pours a rich hazy golden pour, touch of darkness, rich haziness, frothy whitish head atop laces ok. Thicker film laces well. Aromas are fruity, firm estery pear, banana, and apple. Sour gentle tartness, funk is rich, mellow oak and funky brett. Initial is fairly fruity, apple and pear, some funk and gentle tartness. Some oak, straw, funk. Some dryness, apple, and tartness. More fruity front end leads to a mellow straw, gentle grass presence. Backend is tartness, mellow presence, some gentle funk, lactic element. A gentle sour, fairly fruity and estery. Nice funk, but young. Tasty.

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
750ml corked bottle (Batch Dec 19 2013 10.11%alc/vol) pours a hazy golden yellow color with a massive white head decent retention leaving some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon, white wine, yeast, light fruits (perhaps apple). Taste is a lemon sourness with a fruity and malty sweetness, a light white wine dryness and light citrus hop bitterness. A complex and well crafted brew, but not one of my favorite styles, although I still recommend it for others who can appreciate this style.

Scopey (6915) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle thanks to Deeblo. It pours cloudy light orange with a medium white head. The nose is farmyard, sulphur/fart, spice, sweet tangy orange and pear. The taste is dough, light tartness, orange, peach, sherbet, pear, melon, light alcohol warmth, pithy grapefruit and pineapple with a dry, lightly tart finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Hides the alcohol pretty well. Certainly tastes a lot better than it smells, but I would like it a bit more sour.....

pintbypint (2613) - 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.
