Pours a hazy, dark deep golden yellow color with lighter golden ripe banana hues when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger frothy white head tat slowly fades into a lasting cap.
Earthy funk aroma with lots of awesome horseblanket barnyard notes. Slightly lactic with a nice light fruit presence. I’m picking up some light strawberry notes along with some vinegar and earthy oak.
Tart and very puckering with some strong acidity. Lots of barnyard horseblanket funk with some nice golden fruit notes. Apple, pear, white grape and some strawberry and cream. Extremely dry and sour and very refreshing. Nice earthy oak presence with subtle vanilla characteristic. Pretty well balanced with pleasant light fruit nuances that counter the extremely sour funky notes. Bone dry sour puckering finish. Actually pretty drinkable after the initial palate shock. Probably not worth the $30 price tag but still very good. Recommended. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Really amazing beer...without doubt, one of the best, most drinkable and complex sours I’ve tried (and I’ve had my share). Cloudy honey pour with an amazing amount of carbonation for the style producing a 1/4 inch ivory head that diminishes to a ring. Aroma of peaches, balsamic, citrus rind, and grapes. Flavor doesn’t show the typical "barnyard" qualities...instead combining tart, sweet, and fruitiness. Green apple Jolly Ranchers, lemongrass, apricot, and grapefruit...balanced and incredible. scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle – Shared by ygtbsm94 . Thanks Brad! Bright hazed golden yellow, thick white creamy head. Funked wood and sour citrus aromas ride a soft undercurrent of hay and vinegar. Deep citric acidity is well textured on lightly soured layers of barnyard and oak. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation, mouth puckering acidic finish. Really enjoyable... bhensonb (15233) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Bottle shared by Marcus. Thanks for this great beer. Pours slightly hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma is mildly sour, mildly funky. Medium body with mild carbonation. Falvor mildly funky, lightly citric, a touch yeasty. Finishes with citrus becoming more noticeable. A truly great ale. marcus (10231) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 14, 2009
This dark golden beer poured with a thin off-white head and sour fruit aroma. Now this really tastes like a lambic gueuze. It’s fruity and sour with a long dry finish that features a nice yeasty feeling.

This was fantastic - especially after an exhausting week. Hazy ORange body with a thin head. The aroma was pure tart citrus with some barnyard in there. A similar body with a fantastic sour character. Excellent, but no proximus. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 Bottle shared at Duck Duck Fuck Party. Pours an orange body with a thin white lacing into my solo cup. Tart soured peach and citrus. Funky oak and light vinegar with a nice puckering finish. To bad i was real drunk when i had this. Cheers to the re-rate coming soon. 4.0
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a white head. Funky, citrus, peach, and grapefruit. Funky floral brett, and lemon pucker. Vinous and cab like to some extent. Mild acidity with a mouthwatering effervescent aroma. Nice. 4.1 Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Young 750ml bottle, courtesy Morgan Fishback. Each pour yields a progressively more hazy, golden-orange hue to the body. A small, foamy, snow white head rests at the surface. Lacing fails to harden, a soap wash quickly rejoining the pool below after each sip. The aroma is just what I was hoping for, a very lambic-like profile of fruity, citric acidity and funky barrel notes. Soured apricot and nectarine are prominent, as are tart grape skins, kumquat, soft oak, and something I can only describe as "clean barnyard" air. Having alot to live up to, the flavor does not disappoint. Big apricot and juicy grapefruit acidity are massaged by soft, supple oak, with a musty yeast profile that mirrors that of some of the Payottenland’s finest. Simply stated, the palate is perfect. Deliciously dry, with puckering citrus acidity, there’s just a hint of residual sugar that serves to lend a bit of welcomed heft. Carbonation is soft, yet persistent, steadily pushing the tartness towards the back of the tongue.
This stuff is ridiculously good at a young age, and is sure to improve to near perfection after a year or two. A simply masterful creation. drfabulous (7950) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Amazing aroma. Sour. Brett. Oak. My goodness. This beer is blowing me away. All the people down on Lost Abby these days over the stupid issue of carbonation...you must drink this. Just smell it in the glass. Fantastic. jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle from suprisingly carbonated tomme. Straw colored with abnormally
good carbonation for a tomme brew. Like a wheat brew with brett. Don’t know what all the hypes about. Average.
