Bottle shared by drewbeerme. Thanks! Pours a neon amber orange, hazy, with a whitish thin head that dies to a film that clings to the corners. Aromas are red wine, tannins, lightly sour with some funk, vanilla and wet oak with a touch of vinegar, sour cherries. Initial is sour, sticking to the palate, fizzy and spritzy, with good sourness, brett and lacto seem to be there, a touch of vinegar, with sour cherries and crab apple, vanilla and oak on the back, lively on the palate with some bretty barnyard finish and light malty sweetness. Very surprising! BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Chitown RB gathering Jan 2010: Bottle 638 Provided by Drew, thanks.SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
Coppery hue with a slight haze, small fading head and spotty lace. The aroma is shocking with it’s sour ale qualities of barnyard and acidic fruits, grassy, grainy, and a tad woody too. The taste has a nice twangy and crisp sour fruit note that is not overpowering but utterly refreshing. Notes of very light barnyard funk, oak, and minerals along with pale malt. The mouth feel has stated is crisp and lively, refreshing with a good dry finish. The alcohol is very well hidden. This is one of good surprises on the afternoon. Get ya some.
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2010 Bottle shared by drewbeerme. Pours a hazy mango orange with barely any head. aroma of white grapes, lemon, bretty funk, mango, orange peel, and corriander. Flavor is a sour orange, mango, citrus mixture. Great. Mouthfeel is dry. Well put together. Like this quite a bit. The acidic fruit and spices worked spledidly together. TIght beer.

Cloudy copper w/ just a few bubbles for a head. Nose is sour apple, tart w/ a slight brett funk to it. Carbonation is perhaps a little too subdued though it finishes w/ an astringent dryness that really sticks to your tongue to help keep things from getting boring. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2010 750ml bottle from drew. Thank you air... Pours a medium transparent orange brown with a barely existent fading white head... Sour tart fruit upfront, a little plasticy but generally pleasing nose... Grapey and more sour than what I was expecting. Def some acidity there as well.
