750 ml bottle thanks to 5000 from a Hard Liver Fest trade. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is a rich sour funkiness with light berries and distinct oaky vinous notes. The flavor is a tart woody beast with some light berries which are also tart, lots of lively carbonation, oranges, light and yet very robust. Certainly a complex beer and very nice.

Sampled from the tap at the Clusterfork gathering at the Bruery. Murky golden in color with some white head. Flavors are of lemon, peach, and some earthy grassiness. Mildly sour without any strong acetic character or puckering tartness. Really tasty beer.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy hazed yellow straw color with a nice little white head. Good carbonation. The wheat and straw type notes are eveident right off the bat in the nose but you also get some barnyard funk, raspberry, and lemongrass. I am really hoping the taste is like the nose! The flavors in the taste are nice with notes of lemon, wheat, and raspberry. As it warms a bit the barnyard funk flavor moves in and becomes more apparent. I could drink this one all day! There is little to no real alcohol flavors here.

Sample at the 3rd Anniversary. Rating #32. Nice little beer, decent amount of sourness, slightly sweet. Pretty good stuff. Sorry this is short, but I had a lot of beers today and the next 15 or so are going to be very similar.(1738)

Bottle with much thanks to Stephen of New Brew Thursday fame. Pours with a hazy golden to amber hue with a huge white head that lasts and gives great lace. Retention is strong. Aromas are huge. Raspberry, blackberry, malic acid, wheat, hay, very lactic, light wood, red wine, and a hint of funk. Tannins and some esters. Flavors are extremely tart, and acidic, with slightly sweet fruit. Both raspberries and blackberries. A hint of malt sweetness. A slightly full mouthfeel and light wheat malt note, with a touch of leather and a tinge of alcohol (although pretty well hidden overall). Lively bubbles, acidic and very dry. Lightly tannic. Supper drinkable. A lot of lactic acid. A very lovely beer!
