PH1 version. Colour is electric orange haze. Aroma is oak and sour with some saddle leather, not the leather coat kind. Flavour is oaky with lots of carbonation and sourness throughout. Very nice beer if you like the sours.

Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2006
Cloudy dull amber. Big oaky, leather aroma with hints of grape, peach candy, old cheese. Really tart. Very leathery, oaky, a bit grapey flavour. Lively body. So dry and flavourful, very gueuze-like, but the carbo is a shade too high to bring out the best in this beer. PH1.

shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Batch-001

Mellon color with thin white swirls of tiny white bubbles. Nice lacing on the glass that quickly slides off. Aroma is mid smooth sourness that is well rounded and very pleasent. The liquid tickles the tongue as it swirls around. Just a bit of sour bite. Very refreshing. Nice oaky dryness. Long pleasent finish. 6/4/7/4/17

Batch-001 PH1

Slightly darker shade of mellon than the regular. Aroma is nicely funky. Quite a bit funkier than the regular. The funk is strong and oaky but easy to take. Nothing over the top. Well done. Flavor is a match for the aroma. Sour and fruity. Delicious. 8/4/9/4/18

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Batch 001 courtesy of irishboy. On opening, the cork shot across the room. Despite that, the poyr was relatively flat with a small ring of white bubbles sticking around. Smells of citrus, flowers, perfume, some bretty funk. Taste is sour with a chewable vitamin kick. As this one warms, some basic woodiness starts creeping in. Reminds me of a peche lambic in both color and taste.

hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle shared courtesy of Walt. Batch 001-PH01. Poured a deeper and cloudy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aroma was yeasty, fruity, musty with cherries and grapes. Tastes of grapes, green apples, some brett and citrus. Lively body. Great stuff, I gotta get me some more!

4.4
pineypower (3325) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Thanks to Sliffy for this one. Bottle 001-PH01. Pours out a cloudy golden color with a small lacing reminance of a head. Aroma has some notes of tart citrus and some funky sour aromas. The taste is very complex, but very refreshing and extremely well balanced. Nice sour flavor that is not over powering, the wood notes seem to soften the sourness of the beer to give it a very nice balance. Add to it a nice tartness, this beer was truly an experience. Wish I could have some more of this stuff. Excelent brew
