WeeHeavySD (3385) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2016
750ml bottle, Batch 9. The aroma is excellent and complex. Funky nose. Flavor is less interesting, the farmhouse funk is the best part of both.

Garrold (4939) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Bottle. Crafty Bottle, Lincoln. Batch 8. 2.9%. Dark, coppery, ruby red. Soft haze. Thin, dense, lacing, pale beige head. Handsome beer. Nose has super tangy, vine fruit rich, toasted sweet teacake. Some unripe stone fruit. Sour, yeasty twang. As it warms theres some welcome, nutty sweetness. Taste is more sour and twangy. Very light body. Lightly sour, vinous finish. Decent mild, although it lacks a bit of nutty or chocolatey sweetness.

1 pt 9.4 fl oz bottle from Master of Malt. 2.9%, Batch #8 - 04.16.2015. Lively on opening, pours a ruby-brown amber colour with a large foamy tan head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, grains, roast & berry fruit notes, with some yeasty funk. Taste is juicy berry fruit, roasty malt, plus some tartness & funk alongside chocolate, biscuit, and mild bitterness. Light bodied, fine carbonation, mild dry tangy sour fruity finish. Nicely drinkable.

RasmusOtt (2655) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle thanks to Maxi. Pours hazy brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, light smoke, floral notes, earthy notes, sweet tobacco, milky tartness and slight schwartsbier malt. The taste has that same malty base with some bitter nuts tart lactic notes, tobacco, salt and earthy notes. Different indeed and something you dont taste often.

wombat23 (1224) - Texas, USA - APR 3, 2016
Shared 25.4 oz. bottle. Batch #9. ABV 2.9%. Pours a hazy brown with a light beige head. Aroma is vinous and tart, with some funk and very faint smoke. Taste is again vinous and tart, similar to a sour red/brown but not as intense. There is also a second completely different layer of roasted malt, with coffee notes and faint smoke, similar to a porter. Add in the wild yeast and youve got the makings of a rather strange concoction. Its not bad, and it could be consumed in large quantities, but Im not sure thats something Id want to do.

darbeer75 (823) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2016
Aroma: sour and funky; a little fruity; Appearance: very dark amber, almost ruby red; fluffy white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: tart and sour, similar to a brown/red; pretty refreshing; Palate: medium body with long, tart finish; Overall: pretty good. Probably wouldnt buy again with all the other options out there, but was okay.
