*6/18/2013 375ml bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass. A~ really dark brown with a redish hue towards the bottom. light tan head with a lot of lacing. S~ very tart up front, lemons, grapefruit, and a little lime. all followed by roasty dark malts, a little nut aroma, and a good amount of oak. T~ YES! the walnut flavor comes out soo nicely leaving a hint all the way through the after taste. first you get a lot of lemony tartness that immediately changes into a crazy walnut explosion! lots of nutty oak on the finish that really sticks with you. absolutely amazing! M~ definite lighter then i expected. very smooth and nicely carbonated. the carbonation really plays a close role with the walnuts, once that carbonation hits the pallet its like a walnut orgasm (no homo lol) O~ delicious! all around delicious! once again HF can do no wrong, they some how manage to exceed my expectations every time which should be hard by now because they’re threw the roof haha. if you’re into wild ales and love a good overly nutty brown this brew is totally for you!

Bottle at Muckfest VI. Clear brown pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, slight caramel, cider vinegar, black pepper and florals. Malty flavor with slight caramel, walnut, oak, tart tamarind and slight hop before a peppery finish.

See-through dark brown pour with minimal light grayish brown head. Smells exactly like Drie Fonteinen lambic. Seriously. Mouthfeel is awesome. Carbonated enough. Easily drinkable. Flavor is, indeed, nutty but like this awesome nutty lambic situation going on. It’s not AS good as Belgian lambic but it’s tart and funky and delicious.

Bottle, shared by Steve during our brief catch-up and IP trade, an annual occurrence it seems! Many thanks for thinking to bring this for sharing! Dark brown, lively beige head that retains nicely. Aroma is vinous and acetic, underlying dark fruits. No sign of walnuts beyond a nutty dryness in the finish. Quenching and highly drinkable.

Shared with Tony. Dark brown with a cream off white head. Aroma is vinous, vinegar, slight oak. Dry and sour, very good stuff, reminds me a lot of many crooked stave beers. Very good.

375 ml bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of caramel, leather, horse blanket and fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of toffes, leather, yeast, fruitiness and horse blanket with a crisp dry tart finish.

Originally reviewed on 6/1/2013. 375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Murky brown. Small khaki head. Nice surface wisps and retention. Wow, it actually smells like walnuts. Sharp acidity. Lactic. White pepper. Sharp sourness. A little bit of letdown. Malty. Nuts come out in the back. Not as dry as Prolegomena. Better body. Nutty. A unique take. I expected something similar to Prolegomena, but this has a totally different profile.

(375ml bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of walnuts, cherry, vinous, cranberry, and wood. Flavor of cherry, oak, walnuts, strawberry, chocolate, and dates.
