[1/31/16] Draught sample at RateBeer Best festival in Santa Rosa. Golden. Funky, fruity, oaky, lemon, sour, a bit of vinegar. A bit too much vinegar but still really good. Benzai (16923) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
Sampled from bottle (2013) @ "Het is allemaal de schuld van Koen" tasting. Hazy light orange color, small white head. Aroma is superb: very nice peach, sweet-sourish. Taste sourish, sour yellow fruits, unripe peach. Sour, slightly sharp finish. Suitable body and carbonation. bytemesis (9503) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Sample at RateBeer best 2015. Pours hazy golden with a medium creamy white head that dissipates slowly with good lacing. Aroma is oaky, vinous, white wine, stonefruit, basement and horseblanket, dust. Flavor is medium tart, light plus funky. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. I have heard much dissing of this beer among the "bros" lately, but I found it to be delicate and lovely. Kudos. oRos (1674) - sacramento, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016

Bottle, many thanks to DJ Reakt, through the brewers’ network! First batch.
Flat fairly lifeless carbonation. Is it Louis Roederer? Aroma is barnyard funk, wood, oak, red wine barrels. Taste is bone dry ala Frank Boon, soft malts. Absolutely bloody mesmerising. DutchDrebus (6327) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle (batch 2 - 2013) @ joes goes whale hunting. Hazy peach colour with a small white head. Dusty, sourish, fruity. Very nice but hard to describe. Tastes fruity, fresh, sour, dusty, peach, green apple. Medium body, soft carbo. onceblind (10889) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Hazy deep gold with a fast fading head. Lovely wheat and funky earthy Belgian salt and a kiss of lemon on the nose. Very lovely guava and citrus undertones with a touch of salt and Belgian funk. Just a touch sour. Very delicious and very full and coating. Amazing. A kiss salty. jbruner (5466) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2016 Pours a clear golden yellow with bubbly white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of big funk, nice lactic undertones, hints of malty sweetness. Taste is more toward the funk and sour, but well balanced and nicely done. Really a treat to try. hackobock (4073) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2015
December 29, 2015. Bottle, vintage 2013. Received in a trade with kraddel, thanks!
Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is sour fruity and light funky with lemon, grapefruit, green apple, hay, funk, honey, leather and barnyard, some oak and a touch of butterscotch.
Taste is sour with a vinegar touch. Finish is dry sour with lemon, apple, some funky barnyard notes, vinegar and hints of honey.
Good, but a bit too much acetic acidity shines through in the finish.
