deyholla (11597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle shared by Steve at the September 2010 Metro Detroit tasting. Poured a clear gold with a near white head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma was full of sour fruit with some citrus and a nice funky backing. Flavor was similar with sour fruit and citrus that mellows with the funk really coming out in the finish.

4.1
j12601 (11572) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Bottle shared by a remarkably generous guy at the Cuvee de Castleton release at Captain Lawrence. This was definitely one of those right place at the right time sort of thing and I’m delighted that I got to try this. Pours a murky light brown (and my pour was from near the top, so it’s not like I was getting dregs). This was by far the best smelling beer of the day. Bretty, sweet summer strawberries, straw, wood. Absolutely gorgeous aroma (and yes, once I reluctantly finished my pour I sat around sniffing the glass for a few minutes). Thin to medium bodied. Very soft, and lighter than I had expected given the aromas. Light strawberry and vanilla, and a touch of sweetness. Very refined. Certainly lives up to the hype.

3.6
hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle… WTF OMG!… Murky, pear-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet is spicy, earthy and funky - notes of citrus, sharp cheese and a touch of mint. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor starts off very tart, but is cut nicely with toffee and fuzzy fruit sweetness. The finish is tart, then lightly sweet and caramely for the grand finale.
