argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2009
(BCTC, cask) Muddy dark amber body with no head. Aroma is medium sweet, pineapple, oak, cherry. Taste is medium sweet, oak/Brett, some orange, light pineapple. Medium body, no carbonation.

Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2009
A hazy reddish brown ale with a pleasant sour cherry, dirt, Brett and barnyard. In mouth, a nice restrained sour ale, woody, astringent, with light ground cherries. Medium bodied. Quaffable. Cask at BCTC 2009

j12601 (11777) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Cask at the Ithaca booth at BCTC. Pours a murky brown with a thin white head. Big sour bretty nose with some vinegar hints. Doesn’t live up to the nose though, but still has some nice sour notes, and a lot of promise. Seems like it would get better with time perhaps.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Cask at BCTC 2009. Pours a murky coffee with cream color. Decent sour funky aroma. Taste was lacking flavor IMO. Slighty sourness. seemed all jumbled with no order

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2009
On cask, @ BCTC 09. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a minimal to no head. The nose is a little sharp and not especially funky with some sour cherry, pineapple, light brett, and a little wood. The flavor is only lightly sour with a little brett, cherry, and vinegar. A little rough around the edges and lacking in crispness. The body is thinnish, almost completely still with some dryness on the finish. A fairly easy drinker, but it wouldn’t be one I’d seek out if it were bottled.

egajdzis (6580) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2009
[Cask @ BCTC 09] Murky brown red color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of tart grapes, wild yeast, light vanilla, toast, oak, light vinegar, and leather. Taste of dark fruits, wood, vanilla, berry skin, bourbon, tart cherry, acidic, and a sour finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Cask at BCTC 2009. Pours a hazy amber with a thin head. Aroma is funky, earthy leather, old stale dry hoppiness, a bit cheesey moldy hops, funk, brett, fruit and tropical notes. Flavor is mildly acetic, funky cheesey stale hops, a bit leafy citrus leather, flowery, toast, light vinegar, and moderate caramel malts. Finish is a bit funky oily and slick.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2009
BCTC 09. Pours a cloudy brownish red with a smaller off white head. Aroma of wild/funky yeast, vanilla, oak, nuts and a toasted almost burnt quality. Flavor of moderate bitterness, some tart cherry, burnt toast, other fruit character and light vanilla.

beastiefan2k (3981) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2009
BCTC’09. The brewer said this is something he just threw together before the event, a blend of a few different wild brews. This was a cask as opposed to what a few people are writing. This was a murky thick brown color. Aroma is hefty wet wood with lots of aceto and a Swedish-fish type of sourness. More balsamic and rotten garbage in the flavor. This was exactly what it was......... a sour beer completely thrown together with no finesse. But heck it is sour.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Tap at BCTC. Not a good beer. Acetone, spray paint aromas dominate the sour aroma. Tough, acrid, pineapple flavors, with a very thin, flat profile. Uncomplex and uncompromisingly caustic, this desperately needs to be blended to take off its edge.
