bottle labeled 2013

light amount of cherry in the aroma with some noticeable funk. light body with cherries and a nice belgian yeast/funk in the finish. would like to see this fresh to see if the fruit is more pronounced. nice beer

Lots of brettanomyces funk. No cherry or fruity overtones. Sweaty horse all the way. Not a fan.

been waiting to drink this one. tonight just seemed like the night. aromas of strawberry/cherry milkshake fill the glass. the taste is tart with a noticeable wood presence. cherry finish is nice and long. love this beer, but it could stand to be a bit more sour

Appearance. Pours a hazy gold with a thin withe head that fades fast.

Smell. Tart cherries, some light woody funk and wheaty malts. Quite nice.

Taste. Dry brett and woody funk is what strikes me first, some sour and tart cherry. Pretty dry finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium/strong carbonation.

Overall. Not amazing but interesting enough to keep going back for another sip.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Deep apricot yellow and tropical mango looking, with quite a bit of snapping carbonation and fizz off the pour. No head or collar, but a nice barely noticeable middle column of carbonation in the middle, and a simple glow to it. Solid.

Great and fascinating aroma on this. Cake like vanilla and a big mix of soft juiced tart fruits of cherries, peaches, and apricots, a virtual smorgasborg in there. Creamy sensing like icing sugar a bit, but with a mild acid quality, even a bit of moderate funk and earth to match. I am really in love with this bouquet, smells like a treat you find in a bakery more than anything.

Palate though seems to come moderately with less fanfare and surprises. Banana to tropical punch fruit quality, with a big juiced finish. Moderate carbonation but with lots mushy fruit flavor in the mid palate, but has a little playful and tingly carbonation. Moderate acetic quality comes out nicely to cut through and let the tartness make it's presence.

Overall was expecting something wonderful, but was not totally let down. This is definitely one beer I would go back to and revisit again.
