Tap at MBGSF 08. Pours a golden color with a small white head. Aroma is funk, vineous, grass. Flavor is grass, lemon zest, oak, vineous, light fruit. Palate is medium to light, medium carbonation, finished tart. Great stuff, I had about 4 samples of this, thanks BBB63 for the generous pours!! deyholla (11605) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Pours a hazy pale gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a nice light tart lemon and peach note to it with a nice funky backing and a bit of barrel coming through in the finish. Flavor begins slightly tart with lemon and peach with lemon remaining mixing a funky grain note and a dry finish. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Draft at taps 25. Clear copper with a small white head. Big sour and faint wine aromas. Tart and incredibly smooth. The wine flavor really comes in the back end and its pretty dry. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Chicago reunion tasting. Thank you Dave.
Hazy yellow body, small white head. Sour funk with light citrus. Brett and lovely lacto notes. Nicely done.

Courtesy of arcdz. Cloudy light amber body with a medium beige head. Big toasted coconut and raisin nose with vanilla and dough. The flavor is lightly sweet, mildly sour with caramel, raisins, light berry and bread. Medium body is very soft with moderate carbonation.

Big thanks to Ken for sharing. Really enjoyed this one. From growler. Hazy orange with white head. Tropical-fruity-yeasty nose, sweetish, with notes of yellow tomato, honey, floral. Wow. Flavor goes slightly sour, with musty lemon, unripe pineapple, then mildly bitter and pretty dry. Lighter and more refreshing than nose or abv would suggest. Pretty damn nice.

Bottle at HF Harvest fest shared by Sarro. Pours pale yellow with nice white head. Aroma is winey, pretty typical white wine/soured grain/oak/brett aroma. Sourness remains tame however, more of a rustic attribute than a dominating trait. Palate is well carbed and dry, with a long winey aftertaste. Super drinkable sour, very good.

In short: A refreshing, complex, easy to drink, semi-sour oaky fruity blond ale. Excellent.JaBier (7973) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2015
How: Bottle 22oz shared by Kyle at post-HF Harvest 2012 party.
The look: Cloudy yellow-peach body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is medium-wild, some light-color fruits, some barrels, horse blanket notes. Taste is rather smooth for the style, refreshing fruits (pineapples, white grapes, peaches, lemon zest), woody white wine, mild fruity sourness, refreshing tartness. Lively carbonation. This wild sour ale is far from intense but it offers a good complexity and a very high drinkability for the style, almost sessionnable. I loved this one. And speaking of Maillot Jaune, yesterday Lance Armstrong finally admitted what we everybody already knew, what he did was wrong but he did annoying millions of French people and tarnished one of their greatest tradition, he’s still an American National hero.
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear yellow to gold with a thick white head. Aroma of oak, lemony sourness and tropical fruit. Malty and oaky flavor with tropical fruit before a funky brett and lemon finish. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2015
