In short: A refreshing, complex, easy to drink, semi-sour oaky fruity blond ale. Excellent.JaBier (8178) - 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 (11240) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2015

Handbottle shared by wetherel at the Pizza Port Bottle Shop, supplied by WeeHeavySD. Thanks again you guys! Clear blond color with a big bubblegum aroma with medium sourness. Notes of peach and pear in the flavor, with yeasty biscuit character. Ends with modest tartness. Pretty tasty, and very interesting. dchmela (3078) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Growler courtesy GOT. Pours a hazy reddish copper. Pungent spicy citrus malt and funk aroma. Tart malt and merlot taste when it starts to warm a little, with hints of barrel and funk. Smooth and easy to drink, its good.

Growler, courtesy GoT. Pours a hazy, medium golden hue. A flimsy, off-white head dissipates quickly, leaving micro-spot lacing behind. The aroma is quite vinous, with sharp, acedic grape notes, new American oak, mild bretty mustiness, and some citric acidity all showing strong. There’s perhaps some wet hay or straw in there as well, along with some mineral overtones. Flavors follow suit, quite vinous overall, somewhat reminiscent of a crisp, tannic Pinot Grigio, complete with a hint of creaminess. Brettanomyces imparts a light, dry, farmhouse funk and tartness. Oak really makes itself known, imparting an earthy, woody element. Medium-bodied, lightly carbonated, crisp, and semi-dry, even the mouthfeel resembles that of a summertime white wine. Very good stuff. A true bridge between two worlds. cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Growler, courtesy of GodOfThunder. Pours a hazy golden with some nice lacing around the glass. Nose is musty, tart, honey, funky brett with some light fruitiness. In flavor, tart and fruity, a little grainy malt, with some woody tannins and some booze towards the end as it warms. Low carbonation, drying, big round mouthfeel from all the tannins. Solid and very drinkable. smith4498 (3672) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Growler shared by GodOfThunder. Pours hazy golden color with white head. Sour, funky aroma. Tart flavor and a little fruity with some wood and a touch of merlot in the background. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Good stuff. juiceisloose (1528) - Windermere, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Growler courtesy GoT. Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a small off white head that receds quickly. The aroma shows hints of tart grapes, oak, funk, and citric acidity. This has a very musty, barnyard like smell to it. Very funky. The flavor follows and is very vinous with tart and acidic merlot grapes to go with oak that adds an earthy componet. The brett dries things up and adds that farmhouse like funk as well. Medium bodied and finely carbonated with a slight tart finish from the grapes. Really nice use of the wine barrels in this one. Good stuff. mikem409 (2029) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Tap at hopcat detroit. Almost clear gold with medium white head. Aroma of lemon hay. Taste matching lots of subtle hay and nice smooth oak.
