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.

Merci Alexandre pour le partage! Bire dallure noble et riche, dore et moyennement mousseuse. Un nez de Brettanomyces o le fruit prend des allures de pommes vertes. Une grande quantit de bulles en bouche qui me descendent dans lestomac o elles poursuivent efficacement leur travail. Surette, funky et sauvage, je note encore un important ct fruit. Les levures, leffervescence et le fruit me rappellent les bires produites avec des levures champenoises. De longueur et densit moyennes, elle pourrait en effet facilement passer pour une Belge.

bottle shared by a friend. poured a very clear golden colour with a thin white head on top. as it starts to warm theres a clear dried peach notice, apricots, and stone fruit pits. wheats, and crisp malts, sparkly carbonation and not that much sour tart notes to detect. taste follows to nose, again not that tart. but theres a good amount of funk, oak, and ofcourse apricots. enjoyable beer

Thanks to koopa for sharing. Pours a very hazy, dark golden yellow color with a one finger, frothy white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of spotty lacing left behind. Musty, earthy aroma with subtle brine and lactic funk character along with earthy barrel notes and sweet stone fruits. Decent barnyard/funky bug presence with lacto, citrus acidity and dry oak along with some peach and light vinous notes. Medium bodied with a stronger barrel presnce than expected. Slightly briny with some lactic funk, musty cobweb and a decent amount of acetic acid yet never becomes harsh or solvent like. Sour and acidic but not overwhelmingly so with puckering funk and subtle salty flavors. Somewhat like a saison/farmhouse and wild ale hybrid with subtle spice and musty funk followed by toasted oak, wild bugs, citrus acidity and a lingering acetic, slight vinegar-like presence in the finish. Fortunately, there is nice balance and the farmhouse characteristics arent completely overpowered. Tart and puckering but not harsh at all, remaining delicate and easy to drink. This beer didnt completely blow me away but its a solid first offering from these guys.

hopscotch (11014) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks! Pours lightly hazy and yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The aromatic highlights include apricot, oak and a mild measure of funkiness. Medium to full-bodied with zippy carbonation. This is incredibly sour, incredibly fruity and incredibly delicious. A joy to drink. Another world class beer supplied by ctipping!

Beautiful bubbly golden color with a white head . Aroma is tart fruit, lemon, slight funk. Bubbly champagne mouthfeel. Dry fruity flavor with lemon and tartness. Finishes with a dry oak flavor and funk. Fantastic!
