750 from PUB’R via one of my infantrymen, King I’Wana’Layawife, who was gratuitized generously for his diligence. The pour here is turbid, thick, and dark maple orangy color, with minimal off-white head. Nose is huge tangerine and pineapple juice, resiny piney hops, some funky sour mashy fruit. Tastes extremely tart and gueuezy, with sour mashy cherry fruity notes, huge tangerine, pineapple, black pepper, and funky lactosy malt. This one is like a gueuze/tropical IIPA hybrid with a Hawaiian flair, and is downright delicious. RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Blend 7 bottled 5/16/2012. Poured a cloudy light amber with a small frothy off-white head, and notable lacing. Aroma of tart cherries and liliko’i fill the room upon opening the bottle and some Brett is evident as well. Taste represents a perfectly balanced sour with notes of tart cherry, liliko’i, and yeast. Wonderfully drinkable, nice mouthfeel, and generally a great sour. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2012
750 ml botte. Pours a redish olor with an off white head. Aroma of barrel, mild sourneess. Strong passion fruit. Some funk, some fruit, otherwise pretty nice aroma. Flavor of funk and fruity bugs, which is typical of the jolly pumpkin crews. Nice. Slick body, yeah, I’m digging this. Nice beer. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2012

Bottle blend 7 to my Duvel glass. Pours hazy murky brown amber with a thin creamy off white head that dissipates to a foamy collar. Aroma has an awesome fruitiness with funky sour notes all around. Taste is sour bitterness and rotting fruit with wet corks and wine notes with wood in the finish. Palate has a soft carbonation and a drying finish. Very tasty and mild sourness with an awesome nose.

Murky grapefruit with large-bubbled white head reduces to a ring. Nose is heavy cherry with very light acetic, dark berries and wood add rounded complexity before a whack of grapefruit rind that emerges with heavy warmth. Flavor shows huge grapefruit and passion fruit at front and mid, so powerful, fantome 14 like without sharpness, rounded by JP character, doughy finish, zesty carbonation, long incredibly juicy fruit finish, very soft sourness from fruit and yeast. Nicely complex, incredibly subdued, so well rounded. leeburg (230) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Blend 4, bottled 5/8/12. Hazy amber, thin white head. Aroma of the expected funk, basement aromas, an identifiable mild leafy/floral. Flavor is a pleasant moderate sourness throughout the flavor profile, with slight initial sweetness, carbonation kicking in briefly with faint tart and fruity characteristics. Very balanced and pleasant sour. Enough but not too much. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 7, 2012
On draft at the Trappist. It pours an orange/red color with a frothy khaki head. The aroma is very fruity with equal parts cherry and passion fruit. Very tropical. There’s also some nice hints of acid and wood. Mouthwatering. The flavor is a bit watery and funky with mild tartness on the palate and a crackery malt in the finish. Very fruit forward with some wood. Light mouthfeel. Nicely balanced as an easy drinking sour. Sammy (12201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
Doug’s bottle. . Tart cherry supported by sweet yet slightly acidic passion fruit. A good changeup on the sours, initially very good drinking, though a few ounces was enough. not our favourite wild/sour of the day as not true to the style, more of a fruit beer. Johnsense (1669) - - AUG 6, 2012
