wchesser (2042) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Slightly cloudy dark hay color with a persistent pillowy head and lacing. Funky, cheesy nose. Dusty flavors with lot of lemon citrus and tart funkiness, but doesnt finish particularly sour. Not without some flaws, but the complexity in the nose and taste makes this compelling. Bring me some oysters!

PanMarek (401) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2017
Pours a cloudy, dark golden with quick white foam that leaves slight traces on the glass. Sour, woody nose with some hints of herbs. Tart, dry earthy flavor to start that slowly brings out a dry, fruity aspect. The Brettanomyces is there, but it is muted by the strong, sour lemony notes. The hops are faint, but mingle well with the citrusy flavors. Medium body, active fizz with a vinous finish. The long, sour finish tends to obscure the conventional yeasty mustiness, but not fatally. It is tempting to call it a hybrid sour / saison, that does not quite fit the brewers description

Tognetta (925) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 10, 2017
Amarelo claro de leve turbidez, espuma branca de boa formao e persistncia. No aroma brett bombando, alaranjada, frutas amarelas, leve dulor e acidez. Paladar de leve dulor sem amargor. Corpo bem leve e mdia carbonatao. Final seco mas refrescante, brett sempre presente e na medida, um leve amargor amadeirado com o aumento da temperatura que adicionou complexidade. Muito boa.

J_man (981) - Tustin, California, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Bottle picked up on trip to Fort Collins. Very sour aroma with a slight woody note coming from the bottle. Pours a slightyly hazy pale yellow with a light white head. Sourness puckers immediately on the first taste with some light sweetness to balance. Some dry hay and mustiness with a little earthy bitterness poke through, but the sourness dominates with a lemon/lime tartness. This slowly becomes more balanced as you drink it. I wasnt sure I liked it at first, but halfway through it was much more drinkable. Finishes tart with a lasting bitterness that builds up on the tongue. Sours arent my thing, but I can tell this is a very good one and its very well made.

Svartvit (417) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Funky, brett, grass, hay, oak, citrusy fruits, lemon peel, light peppery note to it. Has that typical American funk/sour to it. Medium sour, light sweet, light bitter. Medium body, low carbonation.

Me encanta. Muy equilibrada sin desencantar a quienes buscamos las acidez ni asustar a quien no est acostumbrado. Aromas ctricos, bretts, ligera barrica. Un perfil muy de vino blanco con final seco. La repito siempre que la encuentro.

BuckeyeBoy (7154) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 30, 2016
375ml bottle pours out a hazy straw color topped with a small white head. Nose is vinegar lots of citrus notes oak barrel. Taste is more of the citrus zest twist a tart vinegar bite and the oak.
