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.

750ml bottle @ the office. Pours a hazy golden colour with a tiny white head. Nose is earthy, with a tart bitter note that is reminiscent of a gueuze. Flavour is very tasty mix of earthyness, citrus fruity, and a barrel character. It is somewhat gueuze like in flavour but not quite. Tasty stuff.

Bottle - Lots of funk and light barrel notes with a touch of citrus. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Nice funky notes, touch of citrus and a nice clean finish.

750ml bottle (thx, John P.!) shared at Brians office. Blend #7. Pours a hazy golden with a weak white head. Aroma is earthy, fruity, close to gueuze aroma. Same taste. Very good.

750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of oak, moderate acidity, and some light horse blanket. Flavour is fairly acidic, with some horse blanket, oak, and light leather. On the more acidic side, and nothing like a gueuze. Its a nice sour, but nothing special.

From notes. Somehow this drinking session evaded my developments. Enjoyed at Doug’s 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 doesn’t 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 it’s 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. It’s 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 it’s a good one.

Blend #8. Delightful interpretation of a classic, blended Belgian sour ale. There’s 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 Vermont’s really hidden gems.
