July 31, 2016 - bottle at HOTD, 2016 vintage. Clear golden pour with lots of head. Aroma was light fruit, sweetness and mild tartness. Taste was consistent with the aroma and nicely balanced, very easy to drink. radagast83 (8059) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Draft at Mekong Restaurant. Poured a kind of ruby orange amber color with a small, wispy head. Aroma was lots of tart cherry character, very light sweetness. Some light stonefruits, cherry character. Funky, light crisp tartness to it. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College this beer poured a hazy amber color with a small foamy white head. The aroma was sourish with notes of pineapple and soy sauce. The flavor was sour and chalky with pineapple and soy sauce. Long finish. Medium body. Ok. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2016
750 ml corked n caged bottle- Pours extremely hazy orange with a medium off white head that reduces. Aroma is medium tart, caramel malt, a bit too earthy, fruity. The taste is lacto off the bat, cherries, apples, funky, getting brett, not sure if it’s in there, but very dusty books and basement flavors. Medium to soft carbonation, not bubbly at all. Good beer. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 15, 2016
750 ml bottle pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, spice and fruit. Taste is funky, toffee and assorted fruit.

Bottle from Julios. Murky cloudy caramel color with lasting head and a little lace. Funky woody cherry caramel bready aroma. Fruity sour cherry caramel woody with out of place herbal bitterness and some toffee in the finish along with mouth-coating old wood. Medium body. Fairly unpleasant. Give me Rodenbach Grand Cru at half the price any day. ineedbeer (2152) - Oakland, California, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Poured from a 32 oz crowler.
Aroma is sweet with a medium light honey note. Some light stone fruit notes with some cherry and a touch of tropical fruit. Some caramel with a bit of toasted bread. Light acidity and faint citrus notes.
Pours a slightly hazy, copper color with a large, frothy, rocky, light tan head that recedes to a thin film of foam that clumps in the center. Light lacing and no legs.
Flavor is moderately acidic with a moderately strong malt profile. Lots of caramel, honey and some lighter toasted bread. Medium light bitterness. Some stone fruit notes and over ripe tropical fruit with bits of cherry. The honey character gives it a strong oxidation note.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, not a good beer. I’m not sure why, but this beer has such a strong a oxidation that really conflicts with the light acidity. drpimento (3630) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Kind of a typical Flemish red/brown. This one was a little extra foamy in head & more lace. Flavor was a bit more bitter in finish too. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2016
Earthy hop, touch of spicy hop, biscuity malt, with med bitterness and well-balanced. thedm (6177) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 13, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The funky aroma was musty dry and sour. The dry crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of sour mildly vinous citrus floral dough and fruity. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
