Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma of oak, lemon, funk and brandy. Flavor was lightly tart and funky with lemon, brandy, honey, yeast and oak. puboflyons (3529) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 14, 2016
From the corked caged bottle with a bottling date of Nov 5, 2015. Yellow pour with foamy white head. Aroma of biscuit, Belgian yeast, Brett, coriander, fruit, and brandy barrels. Medium body. The taste has many of the she characters as the mose but more biting in the bitterness. No booze on the nose taste but my head felt it at the end.

375ml bottle - $11.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Date Bottled: Nov. 5, 2015.
Appearance: Pours out a hay-hued body, fairly clear and capped by a slim, white head.
Smell: A tropical whiff of pineapple, a bit of citrus zest and sweet-smelling jellied orchard fruits draped in a layer of faint funk. Honeyish, lightly bready maltiness beneath.
Taste: Sweetish, honeyed bready barley turns to tropical fruits joined with pear and apricot (a bit Juicy Fruit-y) and a little handful of rock candy kernels soaked in brandy. As with the nose, there’s a soft, funky, leathery element. Not overtly oaky. Stays a bit sweetish and still rather fruity on the crispish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation. A little stickiness felt.
Overall: Pretty good. I never felt its ABV, and, while it is a bit on the sweet side, it maintains a free-moving crispness. ben4321 (6827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle from Hoboken Vine. Pours a clear golden-orange color with a thick, sheeting head. Aroma of oak and funk. Some lemony notes and a bit of brandy come through too. Lots of oak taste. Funky and a bit boozy on the flavor too. Some lemony bitterness on the finish. Clean, funky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Pretty tasty. baraciisch (3436) - California, USA - APR 19, 2016
Slightly hazy yellow orange in color.... Aroma of lemon, citrus, brandy barrel, caramel, funk... Flavor is fairly dry with champagne notes throughout, some light sweetness from brandy that seems a little out of place... Lemon, funk, wood... Decent but they've made better

375 ml bottle purchased at Prost, North Hampton, NH. Slightly hazy golden color with a light red hue. Aroma is oak, over ripe fruit, spent squeezed lemons, odd booze note (the Brandy) jsnicholas (709) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2016
The flavor is again over ripe fruit, mild tannic oak. I don’t know the significance of Portuguese Brandy barrel but it is here and gives a big sweetness. The funky yeast or whatever bacteria is here makes an odd combination with this sweet Brandy. The texture is dry from the wood. Interesting overall but for the price, I am not running to buy more bottles.
Bottle (375ml $16): Light golden, 2 finger white head, lots of lacing. Somewhat cloudy. Aroma is funk and fruity. Taste Is fruity and somewhat sweet and sour. nickd717 (4996) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 8, 2016
375ml bottles. Shit dogg, some tickers drink some dog poop beer from some mediocre brewery and it’s sour and they freak out and auto-3.8 that mofo. Clowns. Now let me tell you, the gash makes some of the absolute most refined American sours out there. They’re one of the best. You can just tell they know what they’re doing and aren’t just two clowns in a garage with some barrels and some wild bugs of unknown origin. This one just looks great. Mostly clear bright golden, large billowing white head, lively bubbles. The aroma is lemongrass, Bretty funk, oak, and brandy. The flavor is tart, mildly acetic, citric, slight brandy note. Great mouthfeel, exceedingly crisp, clean, and lively feeling. Freaking legit beer, as I’ve come to expect from the gash. Bawelt (874) - Lyon, FRANCE - APR 7, 2016
Nez très vineux, légèrement aigre, des jolies notes de raisin, fond de champagne. Assez équilibré.
Bouche superbe. Attaque ronde, des levures mais pas éc?urantes, nobles, notes franches de raisin et de champagne. Une petite acidité qui équilibre bien et si donne un peu de pêche et une identité.
Le côté brandy se trouve difficilement mais on peut aller chercher des notes cerises amères.
À tester : on reste sur une bière si n’est pas vraiment acide mais qui en titre pourtant les avantages.
