COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the traditional gueuze beers of Belgium, BACKACRE matures for more than a year in oak barrels to develop a fruity, earthy, and refreshingly tart character. The careful blending of different barrels creates a sparkling golden ale with a crisp and complex nature akin to cider or dry champagne.

From notes. Somehow this drinking session evaded my developments. Enjoyed at Dougs house on October 28. 750 mL bottle, Blend #7. The pour is a darker clear gold color with a thin and bubbly white head that doesnt leave any lace as it disappears. The aroma is good. There is a bright sour right up front that is lovely. The barnyard and funkiness come through in the back end and its just kind of bretty. The flavor is a little sweeter. There is a light funk, some barnyard dustiness, and a decent lemon zest to it. Its interesting. The mouth feel is light and clean with a touch of syrupy tendency and a brighter carbonation with a lingeringly tart and funky finish. Not too bad.

Poured a darker gden color with a white head. Aroma was of light apple skins, must, brett, lemon juice, fruity. Flavor similar, pretty clean, really nice veer, weird that this is their only beer, but its a good one.

Blend #8. Delightful interpretation of a classic, blended Belgian sour ale. Theres a good amount of barnyard funk in the aroma and flavor, as well as a moderate sour bite, and the combination is fantastic. Excellent, ambitious beer from one of Vermonts really hidden gems.

750mL bottle. Batch 07. Pours hazy gold with a small, quickly-dissipating white head. Aroma is yeast funk, oak, and green apple. Taste is white grapes, green apple, lactic acid, brett, brine, earth, hints of lemon, and vinegar. A tad strong on the vinegar, especially towards the finish, giving it an odd but pleasant character - vinegar feels closer to that of a sour red than your usual wild or gueuze. Dry finish. Body is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is medium bordering on lively. Crisp mouthfeel.

This beer is an excellent sour. Clean crisp, theres not many sours out, they are hard to make. This is well worth the cost. Support the craft behind this brew.

Bottle. Poues hazy golden. Aroma of sour, light vinegar, light bubblegum, light sesam, burnt notes. Taste is rather popcorn, Brett, light vinegar, sesam. Very one dimensional sourness. A fail attempt.

jefcon (1775) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Champagne-like, with crisp green apple and brut champagne on the nose. Light sour palate, mown hay, rich mouthfeel, and fine carbonation. Very complex. Tremendous label art.

Giant bottle into a tumbler, pours a dandelion gold. Minimal fizzy white head dissapears fast, no lacing. Green apple in aroma and taste, fresh and tart on the pallate, quite fizzy and frontal on the back end. 7.3% slides right in, the tartness stands alone. Enjoyable through and through.

(Dgustation avec kzeon et yourilevesque. Merci Alex pour cette chance! Version 7.3%) La robe doree et embrouille montre un col mousseux qui ne rsiste pas. Ses parfums de fruits noyau, de lgre acidit, de yaourt, de poussire de campagne et de chne sont loin dtre dplaisants. Ses saveurs dlicates de fruits aigres, de foin, de funk doux et de chne flattent mes papilles. Son corps de moyenne densit montre une texture crmeuse et un jeu actif des bulles. La finale est aigre-douce, sans agressivit, voire mme facile.
