Sampled at the Source with Andrew and Ellen during GABF 2015. Pours a hazy orange body with thick white head. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of spicy brett, tart stone fruit, citrus and sour oak. wchesser (2084) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Clear orange brown with light carbonation and almost no head even with an aggressive pour. A lot of nice brett character on the nose, mostly tropical fruit, some sour funk. Very flavorful and complex with oxidized apple, pineapple, white grape. Super smooth and delicious. Mouth watering. Probably the best beer ever to have Upslope’s name anywhere close to it. kraddel (8350) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle thnx to kurt.

Taste is dry, sour, oak, bit buttery, nice and refreshing TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2014
375ml bottle acquired from adnielsen. Thanks, bro. Pours a nice hazy darker golden amber hue, some healthy amber orange glow with some decent haziness. Frothy offwhite head atop as a firmer layer, nice frothy film sticks around and laces small. Aromas are a bit funky and Belgian. Mellow spice and decent funk, touches of oak and vanillin. Faint white grape, tart fruit and a bit of citrus. Mellow lactic and yogurty feel. Initial is lighter end of the fold, touches of white grape, gentle earth, a bit of green apple. Some mellow bread, straw and yogurt meet decent funk, a touch of spiciness. Some dryness, more funk into the backend, a bit oaky and dry, bready and straw. Some odd cobwebs, some gentle fruity ester jabs in and out at odd times. Some pear, apple, decent dustiness. Finish is a bit dry, faint metallic and decent funk element comes on. Solid one, big on the funk and yeastiness at times. Nice. deyholla (11759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of funk with a bit of sour fruits and earthy grain. Flavor has a nice sour fruit note with a growing sourness and an earthy finish.

375 ml bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a small lasting ivory head. Aromas of straw, horse blanket, leather, yeast and light fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of straw, lemon zest, yeast and a hint of barnyard funk with a crisp dry lightly tart finish.

Poured from bottle to glass. Straw hue with white hue that dissipated. Aroma is lactic, straw, acetic, fruit. Mouthfeel is great with light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a tart sourness throughout. Overall this is a great brew. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Pour is hazed golden amber with a thin tight white head. Nose is dusty and light cheese funk with a leathery brett, hints of mineral and salt, a faint plastic ester, and notes of lemon and tangerine but very light. Taste is much more fruit forward. The funk isn’t near as present, still a fair bit of brett offering a leathery mineral and hint of salt. Fruity esters, juicy lemon, ripened tangerine and a faint touch of citrus. Nicely balanced beer, fairly bright and integrated. Lighter body, softer carbonation, and smooth. Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2014
July 1st Sunday. After about 10 crooked stave beers under my belt and several more in the fridge, I can say I am a fanboy. Was excited to try this. Fruity, a bit of funk, easy belgian ale base with the hops adding lots of citrus and grapefuity notes. Nice! jrob21 (3722) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Sample at First Sunday. The sour aroma is wafting across the room, have not gotten that in too many sour beers. Murky dark orange color. Tart and lemon fruit flavors. Light on the sour flavors and definitely bigger in the nose than it is on the tongue. Really digging this one, smooth on teh finish.
