CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2011
On tap at the 2011 Max’s Belgian Fest: Pours a clear deep golden amber with a spotty-lacing ring of white bubbles. Has a big complex sweet cognac and oak nose with light fruity toffee. Starts with pretty good fullness and mild carbonation with light grape and apple fruitiness before a thinner warming finish. Pretty unique and complex brew, but could be a little more drinkable.

Arayaga2 (2219) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Hazy cider colored with very little head. Aroma is like a cider fermented with brett. Sweet and spicy with that pleasant pineapple and barn. Taste is the same, with more bretty bitterness and tannic woodiness well after the finish. Some warming alcohol.
