djd07 (12550) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle thanks to Chow. Pourd a cloudy copper with small beige had that lasts. The aroma is strong brandy, oak, funk. Thin mouthfeel with light booze, grain, funk, sour finish. Very good.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Amber pour, light head. Boozy up front, vinegar, alcohol, yeasty funk. Too much booze in this one.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with virtually no head its tiny, white and gone in the blink of an eye. The aroma offers phenolic spiciness and a vinous, oaken tanginess. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is lightly tangy, heavily sweet, and presents more yeast-driven spiciness than I am able to enjoy clove, to be specific. Finishes tangy and a touch too sweet. A solid beer, but not at all my thing. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle @ What the Funk Denver 2014. Pours a golden orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Pretty strong aroma. Definitely some cheese and funk in the nose. Plenty of earth as well. Flavor was a bit strong. Some citrus and a lot of barnyard funk. Light cheese / parmesan. Again, kind of strong but kind of fun to drink.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
750mL thanks to brainlair. Dry cork broke in the bottle upon opening. Annoying but no problem. Pours a clear golden, lower small white head. Nose is again some of that weird Ale Apothecary house yeast that gives off dill pickle. Pretty uncanny dill pickle. Taste is much sweeter than expected, sticky, white sugar, pretty sticky. Not at all what I was expecting.

DuffMan (9746) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle shared at game night. Medium orange amber, lasting g off white head. Tangy and spicy, red wine and light vinegar, compulsively drinkable.

KyotoLefty (9640) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2017
750 ml bottle. Nose of vinegar, vanilla, yogurt, cherries. Reddish-brown, cloudy. Cherry, vinegar, grapes, wine, and yogurt in the flavor. Good.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 6, 2014
Bouteille 75cl via trade, thanks to Rado_. Actual abv shows 8.73%. Bottled 27/02/2014. Ambre trouble, col fin blanc-cass. Arme est trs vinaigr ds lentre de jeu sans pour cela sembler surfait, mais ce ct actique en reste cependant fort prsent. Note un rtro nasal de barrique proche dun vin rouge cuit. Un bouquet malt caramel reste galement bien prsent. Palais rappelle une vieille brune avec un mlange agrable entre le malt et la barrique et ce profil un peu acidul,dans ce cas ci aigrelet assez prenant. Le tout laissant penser un cidre caramlis accompagn dune prsence fruite rouge de vin. Seul point faible restant ce profil aigre fort tenace qui aurait t trop gnant sur une bire de plus faible pourcentage dalcool.

marcus (9553) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle from Haggerty. Pours clear orange copper with absolutely no head and a fruit and vanilla aroma. There is a puckeringly sour fruit flavor with no bitterness. There is a tart finish with a hint of brandy.

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pour out of 750 ml bottle, thanks Stephen! Hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, oak brandy, earth, slight white grape, hints of grain, slight yeast. Taste is a mix of dough, yeast, grass, some peach, pear, white grape, slight grainy notes, finishing fairly sweet. Nice.
