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.

750 ml bottle shared by someone at the hotel room tasting over Jackie-Os 9th Anniversary weekend. Pours a hazy gold with a white, kinda foamy head. Notes of bready malts, apricot, lemon and lime citrus, florals, grass, oak - theres a barnyard funk here, with mellow tartness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a balance of sweet and tart. Dry, herbal finish. Good beer.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of light sourness/tartness, some pale malts, light notes of oak, and hints of citrus. Flavor the same with a nice sourness. Average texture. A solid beer, but slightly a little weird on the finish. Edit: Batch 3? bottle. Pours hazy golden. Hints of light fruit and peaches in addition to everything else. A solid beer.

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours clearish pale gold with almost no head. Aroma is really lovely geuze-like funk with big tropical fruit, melon, and stone fruit notes, along with some lemon. Taste is a pleasant balance of sour and sweet with lots of peach, melon, and lemon, and a big oaky tannic finish, although not overpowering. Drinks fairly light and crisp for the ABV. World-class American sour.
