From 02/17/13 notes. Poured from a 750ml bottle into a wine glass.

a - Pours a hazy yellow orange color with two inches of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells super funky, smelling of barnyard funk, cheese, sour fruits, vinegar, oak, floral hops, citrus hops, and earthy notes. Very nice nose; very and tart and funky, I like it a lot.

t - Tastes of sour fruits, oak, spice, vinegar, funk, some cheese, more sour fruit, and citrus hops. taste is quite good as well, though it is less funky than nose and not quite as complex. Still a good taste.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Dry and acedic, nice mouthfeel for a gueuze-style beer.

o - Overall a very nice beer and cool blended American Wild. not as funky as Belgian gueuzes but the funk in the nose is very nice, and some very nice sour fruits. Glad to have a few bottles of this.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

Pours a cloudy golden color with just a hint of amber. There isn't much head on this beer. Lots of sour lemon and vinegar along with a bunch of oaky notes in the nose. There is a mild funk in the smell that doesn't show up in the taste. The taste is extremely sour, but it isn't funky. This is a very clean sour with notes of lemon juice and vinegar. The body is medium with a very dry finish.
