The beer is a deep amber color. Lots of yeast sediment at the bottom of the bottle and the liquid is fairly cloudy. Small yellow-white head, a bit fizzy. There’s a little but sweet and sour malt flavor but it’s mostly nice sour and funk. Smells like a pale sour with a little bit of oud bruin-ishness. Taste is lightly sweet and medium sour. Moderately dry. Some lemon, a little under ripe nectarine. A bit more of that oud bruin character. There’s a hint of legitimate lambic funky depth but it’s fleeting. Medium body. Nice sour. I prefer the peach by a hair but it’s better than the kriek and geuze for me. ineedbeer (2255) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Another bottle courtesy of Adam.
Aroma is moderately funky with quite a bit of tropical fruit notes. Faint oak notes and a light background, herbal, earthy funkiness. Medium light citrus notes. Light malt notes.
Pours a cloudy, copper-red with a moderately thick, and creamy, tan head with average retention. Light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is moderately acidic with quite a bit of tropical fruit and citrus. Medium light oak notes with light barnyard funk. Faint herbal, earthy funkiness. Hints of malt in the background with some stone fruit present as well.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, another surprisingly nice beer from New Glarus that surpassed expectations. Light geuze-like qualities with moderate acidity and good fruit notes. Very enjoyable. wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 23, 2015
From notes. Tasted on 1/27/13 from a capped 500mL bottle. Pours light amber with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is super funky brett with a tart/sour note and some light cereal malt. The flavor is more sour than I expected from the nose with a good amount of funk and light cereal malt. The body is light with medium plus carbonation and a long sour and funky finish. Sarlacc83 (2290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle from TODD! Thanks! A: Cloudy reddish brown with a ring of foamy off-white head. Some lacing.N: Cherry, acetone, vinegar, leather, red wine grape, oak, some peppercorn, coriander, cracker, green apple and grapefruit. T: Puckering sour and some light sweetness. M: Light body, tingling carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Really nice sour. A lot in common with Rodenbach and the yeast profile reminds me of Drie Fonteinen. Good show.

Bottle. Pour is pale yellow with a small white head that fades quickly. Aroma and flavor of funky barnyard, wood, oak, citrus peel, and earth. Finish is funky with a bit of earth/citrus coming through. Good.

Had this at the 2014 RB Pittsburgh Summer Gathering at Horny Devil’s place. Actually it was after the equinox at the beginning of fall, but DILLIGAF. Big thanks to James & Michelle for hosting such a nice spread of quality beers and for this particular beer a GIANT thanks goes out to beerman dan 6686. Smell is sour but it does have a tad of that putrid thing in the olfactory, but in a good way I guess. Pale yellow with some slight brown hints. Good decent co2 on the first taste, but could use more. Reminds me of the good lambic stuff, you know, the real thing. Yep, that tart bite makes up for the lack of co2. Farmy feeling fun. Funky and finiscky. Lovely it seems. Really good beer experience, the small is long forgotten. Never over the top but quenches my search for tarot. Yummy, solid finish. This beer rocks!
