kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2009
12.7oz bottle. Pours cloudy reddish amber, topped with a small off white head that gets a lot bigger with swirling. Enticing aroma; lots of barrel notes with wood, grape, wild yeast, and lactic notes. Flavor is not as exciting as the aroma. Flavor is on the sweet side at first with caramel and oak. Tartness and wild yeast come through towards the finish. Lactic acid, white grape and oak persist for a lengthy finish. Decent enough.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
In short: A sweet and yeasty funky beer with a strong barrel presence a light fruity sourness. A successful wild experiment.
How: Bottle 375ml. Consumed when about 1 year of age
The look: Very golden orange body topped by large beige head
In long: A bit of a gusher. Nose is a medium semi-funky (almost bretty) with fruity vinous notes. Taste is a woody, oaky dryness, funk, cherries, yeast, grapes/wine, caramel, strawberries, brow sugar. Light sourness, medium acidity/tartness. This is like a yeasty barley wine that spent some time in Jolly Pumpkins barrels. No alcohol presence whatsoever. Would have been even had it been dryer, this is a little sweeter than what Ive come to expect form that type of woody funky beer. This is a strange beer that will not please most people but this is definitely one that should please the JP lovers out there. The problem is that this is an expensive beer, something like $15 for a 375ml, ouch! Theres an old saying that says that money doesnt make you happy. Maybe, I dont know, as long as breweries keep putting out kick-ass expensive beer like this I will never know.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
375ml bottle from a trade with a Floridian... Pours a golden orange brown with a medium frothy just off- white head... Aroma of oak, sweet vanilla, and some light tart fruit... Flavors of sweet oak flavors combined with a light degree of tartness that ends on a slightly dry bitter/herbal note. Fluffy yet semi-lively carbonation. Mouthfeel was nice and creamy. Overall different but nice nonetheless.

Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and light to moderate acidic with a average duration, fresh acidic fruity. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20090320]

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Sampled at the Relentless Thirst tasting. Struck me as being a Flemish Sour in a lot of flavor aspects. Medium slightly reddish amber, OK head. Aroma was sour cherries and wood. Flavor matched, with a bit of vinegar and light caramel as well. A touch thin in the body, but overall, nice beer.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Summer Secret Santa 09. Pours a cloudy rust orange with very large cream-colored head. The aroma is obvious oak with strong vinous notes, a little bit of tart cellary funk, some cherry and fig, and a little bit of burnt chocolate. The flavor is fig and oak with a lightly toasted note. There is a nice, tart dryness to it that makes it quite pleasing in the mouth, though it isnt as funky as the nose led me to expect. A mellow wine, cherry, and plum combination makes it smooth out quite a bit toward the finish. The finish is medium dry with straightforward oak, some yeasty spiciness, and just a touch of alcohol. Quite a tasty beer.

nearbeer (4996) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 20, 2009
350 ml. Pours a slightly hazy copper-amber with a fizzy head that settles to a small lasting ring of bubbles. Aroma is oak, tart cherry and light alcohol, with a hint of vinegar. Flavor is a bit sweeter on the front with some spicy brown sugar, cherry brandy and toffee. The strong oak presence quickly catches up to the sweetness. Finish is acetic acid - vinegar and cherry with more oak. Light-medium body is astringent and slightly watery.
