maekchu (3706) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 5, 2017
Bomber. Punchy tart fruity nose, yellow fruit, and citrus. Cloudy medium straw color. Light fizzy stone fruit, small bit of funk, some sugary jumps in mid palate, and then it gets dry in the finish. Thin body, very light astringency. Very pleasant . Mild flavors, well balanced, and a fair amount of tartness.

A bottle on the Ale Apothecary beers tasting at Firefly on Cambie. Tasted with Brian. Bottled 17-Mar-2016. Pours a murky golden with a white head. Aroma is funky, floral, herbal, earthy, some sweetness. Taste is sour and sweet, fruity, herbal. Complex and well-balanced beer. Refreshing and easy drinlable (9.3%?!). Amazing beer.

Beer5000 (6194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2016
750 ml bottle @ Bakgrden Bde &, Kristiansand. Unclear golden body with a small white head. Very pleasant and complex in aroma, fruity, mild acidic fruit, mild Brett, hint of wood, lemon and slightly vinous. Flavor is also complex and pleasant like aroma, fruity, acidic, vinous, wood, funk and bitterness all extremely well balanced. Lots of flavors but nothing really dominates the others. Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste. Expensive, but great.

Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeffs on July 20. 750 mL bottle. Corbet broke the bottle trying to get the cork out, so Jeff had to come to the rescue and saber this bitch open. Awesome. The pour is a frothy hazy golden yellow with a large white head that falls slowly. The aroma is quite complex. There is a lot of funkiness, citrus, stone fruit, yeast, biscuit malt, and a hint of clove. Sigh, this was great until the clove showed up. I do like that there is a good fruitiness to this. The flavor is interesting. There is a light berry and maybe some grape skin to go with the citrus. The clove really comes through on the back end with the yeast. The mouth feel is a little heavier than I would like with a nice carbonation and a lingeringly bready and dry finish. This is an interesting brew.

TimE (5422) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2016
Big oaky nose with tons of sourness - Green apples, lemons, creaminess. Big carbonation not as sour as the nose but lots of oak, funny and lemon. Just found this a bit too big and could be more like 7% and work better. Decent but not mind blowing
