MrHangover (3306) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2014
Sample @ CBC 14. Pours a murky pale golden beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of apples, caramel, light fruits and a touch of booze. Some yeast in there as well. Flavor has loads of apple, Belgian yeast and a touch of wood in there as well. Long, light sweet aftertaste. Decent.

GothGargoyle (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle pour at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Very cloudy dark orange, kind of like unfiltered apple juice, with a small pale head. Aroma is apple juice, apple brandy, honey, stone fruits. Medium bodied, fruity on the palate with a slightly floral finish. Taste is apple juice, pear, not much else. Perhaps this really is just apple juice??

Bottle shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Blonde pour. Thereís some definite apple brandy, but itís fairly oxidized. Dry and loads of carbonation. Off.

CloakedDagger (1198) - - APR 15, 2014
Bottle 75 cl. Comes as a massive and violent gusher leaving less than 50% of the original content left in the bottle - so be warned! Pours a cloudy, opaque orange with a thick, off-white head. Heavy Brett aroma combined with some wood and apricot. Medium body, very soft on the palate - smooth even. Has a harsh sulphurous note, again wood and apricots with some funk on the side. And also quite a bit of bitterness in the finish. A rather messy brew - in so many ways. 150414

I never saw this beer hit the shelves in Georgia. Luckily, it was on the shelf of the Porterís Cellar. Pours light amber with solid, lasting white head. Scent is booze, caramel, and fruit. Taste is sweet with earthy barely bitter finish. Light-medium body with mild carbonation bite. Bottle - The Porter - Atlanta, GA

11/9/13. Bottle thanks to Adam at Sweet Grass. I wasnít aware this was a sour... is it supposed to be? HUGE hiss when I popped the cap and a solid plug of foam slowly started coming out the neck of the bottle. Really super hazy orange pour with floating particulates under a giant, tight, fluffy off-white head that sticks and coats the glass. Hopefully this was intentional, I guess? Wow, this is a strange brew... Weird aroma, definite Brett in there, and a fruity aspect to boot, but definitely a cream and marshmallow aspect as well, combined with a sugary caramel aspect, it sincerely reminds me of dulce de leche ice cream and also símores. Hmm. Taking a sip I get more of that caramel aspect, combined with coconut and buttery vanilla, it reminds of tart, fruity pina colada that went really heavy on the vanilla, coconut, and cream. Strange. More sniffs and sips and the buttery cream aspect keeps pounding at my senses and a booziness pops through. Possibly an infected batch or bottle, not really in a good way. The infection blended with the brandy is really goofy, on purpose or not in this case.
