2012 bottle. Thanks BoBoChamp! Hazy golden beer with a small white head. Fruity aroma with notable yeast, and hints of caramel and oak. Fruity flavour with acidic tartness and vinegar notes, and a hint of yeast in the finish. A tad simple in character j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2009
The 09 on tap, pouring at the Night of the Funk event in Boston. Pours a slightly murky and hazy golden straw yellow. A bit nutty, with hay, straw, and brett. Medium bodied, and a bit more of that nutty almond flavor. Light solvent notes. Long slow finish with some light aicd. Buttery, bit of DMS.

750ml, corked and caged bottle, shared courtesy of Phatz (thanks!, I guess I owe you my next new born). Poured a medium and lightly hazy (darker haze as we got towards the bottom of the bottle) golden color with a smaller sized off white head. Upon the first whiff, I was greeted with a plethora of incredible aromas that instantly put me in that ‘special’ place in my mind! I could smell this one all day and night long. Aromas of cherries, grapes, apples, funky, brett, light yeast, citrus, and vanilla. All the aromas melded together perfectly. I was also getting a light spiciness, maybe cinnamon. Tastes of tart green apples, citrus, woody, light yeast and vanilla. Light and soft body. Sammy (12967) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2018

Bottle. [thanks bobochamp]77ships (11479) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2015
Pours clear yellow with no head to speak of. Aroma has light cherries, vinegar, mild lactic, some bourbon oakiness and white wine. Low carbonation, lovely dry and tart mouthfeel. Flavour is tart, oaky, peach, cherries, but with a far too burning vinegar tartness to it. There is a lot of good going on, just not that good.
THANKS! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ the “pre-Club 54 tasting”. 2012 Vintage. Supposedly this is the finest vintage. Hazy orange, little white bubbles. Amazing nose, huge musty cellar, in an almost lambiek-funk type of way, thick oak, musty, light cardboard, very light malt base. Taste is slightly sweet malty musty oak, funk, floral, wood, vinegar, delicate funk, citrus, light green apple, rather funky, delicate in its approach & qualities. Fittingly lively carbonation, drinks crazily easily. Very impressive beer. Absolutely amazing. Going back by memory, I do feel that I noticeably preferred this one to the Duck Duck Gooze. Just awesome really. BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Sampled from a bottle at Where the Wild Beers Are - October 5, 2013. Special thanks to weinando for the 411 on the sorta-concealed pouring of this beer. Yellow/orange pour with a white head. Lemony and fruity. Slightly sour, but not overly so. Light and crisp. Great beer!
