teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - AUG 2, 2016
38cl bottle shared at the 42nd Floor. Many thanks to Paul for this one. It pours a hazed golden color with a large white head. Aroma is tangy musty fruity with notes of feet, apple pie, baked apples, lemon peel, cider esters. Taste is also sweet fruity with more cider-like baked apples notes and lemon peel, light straw and barnyard with plenty more stone fruit sweet notes. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, weird but satisfying

joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 31, 2016
375 ml. bottle. It pours a nice clear golden orange color with a tall, fizzy off white head that shrinks within a minute or so. The aroma is really great. Herbal, funky, hay, light pineapple and hints of toasted malt. The flavor is effervescent and very funky with notes of over ripe peach and pineapple. Lots of spice and oak as well. There’s some toasted caramel sweetness in the background. The finish is spicy and funky with fruity/caramel notes in the background. The mouthfeel is pretty frothy. This was a great sour beer. Not super sour, just lots of funk, spice and fruit.
