750ml C&C bottle generously shared by THE CPJ. Review #700, quite a milestone!

Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head that settles to a slight ring and swirls of haze. Phenomenal aromas of funk, lemon juice, oak, green Granny Smith apples, and wet hay. Very acidic and sharp, but in the best possible way. Reminds me quite a bit of Cable Car. Taste follow the nose nicely, very acidic flavors of lemon juice, green apple, and tropical fruit with a bit of oak and a whole lot of funk. Mouthfeel is crisp and smooth, with a fairly light body and good, sharp carbonation. Just the right amount of dry sourness here, it doesn't strip the enamel off your teeth. Overall an amazing, unforgettable beer, so stoked to have gotten to try this. Cheers, Shane!

Pours a transparent golden color, bubbles floating to the top, thin limited white head. The nose has a fair bit of sourness and acidity, light leathery brett, an earthy funk, touch of tangerine and tangy peach. The earthy funk is there with some barrel presence, hints of vanilla, the peach is sour, extremely high acidity and burns the throat. The feel is full bodied and heavy, grainy on the throat, dry, under carbonated.

Bottle (2009)

Thanks for this one, Jerz and ZX6Chris!

(Aged for 2 years)

Clear golden with lots of visible, active carbonation and a thin near-white head. Spots of lace are left down the glass.

A hugely aromatic sour consisting of bright, vibrant juicy lemons and a tart, biting, strong sour tartness. As the beer warms, more barnyard funk aromas present complementing the strong citrus (lemon) and sourness.

The flavor follows the aroma very similarly. The dominant flavor is of funky yeast and strong lemons, complemented by a high level of sourness throughout. Complete, and while aggressive, very drinkable.

Thin to medium bodied with high carbonation. Incredibly easy to drink. Light and airy.

An absolute joy. I wish I had this on unlimited supply at home (one can wish!).
