Pours a cloudy dark golden (almost orange) with a quick, white head. Yeasty (brett) nose with some sour, strawberry, and tart vinous notes. Active fizz, crisp and light texture with a dry finish. Initially a tart, acetic fruit flavor with a saline, dry champagne background and some slight mustiness. The honey is faint and seems to end up with the strawberry flavors. The briney notes evoke a gose and the tart fruit compliments it well. The alcohol notes are hiding around the finish and remind that it is 9.5%.
Though RB lists it as a sour / wild ale, GI labels it a farmhouse. It works well as a hybrid. The tartness is present, but with a crisp, light dryness. It lacks the heavy slick texture that often accompanies a sour beer.

Bottled February 22nd 2016.
Pours a cloudy orange yellow with a small and quickly receding head of foam.
Smells like wine infused with Brett. Strong Brett.
Brett and tartness rule with some honey like sweetness interspersed throughout. Tasty.
Very lively carbonation.
A very good sister. zvikar (6172) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - OCT 23, 2016

Golden amber. Soft oaky nose with strawberries and peaches. Tart, full bodied but some what rounded. Decent but does t blow me away juiceisloose (1492) - Windermere, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2016
2013 vintage 765 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color and topped by a thin head of bubbles that quickly dissipates to a still body below. The aroma shows notes of soured fruit, strawberries, peppery spice, some honey sweetness, and plenty of barnyard funk from the Brett along with lacto sourness. The flavor follows with ample amounts of sour fruit, strawberries, and peppery spice. The Brett adds a good amount of funky flavors while the honey adds just a touch of sweetness. Good amount of sourness throughout. Medium bodied with tingly carbonation that leads to a lengthy, tart, and dry finish. Really nice sour ale, but I have to think that this would be better fresh as the strawberry isn’t as prevalent as I was hoping for.

2013 vintage. Pours a light golden, extraordinarily disappearing head leaves a glass of straw coloured beer with no lacing. Nose- strawberry, peppery raw honey with slight green apple. taste- juicy strawberry tartness and acidic finish. A really unique beer in that the nose has a strong honey nose but then almost no sweetness and quite a dry finish. delicious . carbonation is relatively low lending a creamy and peppery mouth-feel. bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2016
Pour is cloudy yellow with almost no head. Aroma is tart and funky. A very tart beer witch I love with very funky middle and zippy finish a must try if you like sours.

Zesty fruit, citrus fruits, light acidic, some yeast. Slightly hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Medium sour and light sweet. Light sours warm up to some sweetness, wood barrel flavours open up to some intense sweet fruits, probably some strawberries, light molasses, alcohol. Nice Sour, interesting flavours from sour to sweet. Keg at the brewery tap room, Chicago.
