Huge thanks goes out to the ever generous black13 for this bottle, way cool Michael. Shared with brian23456 and my girlfriend. 750ml bottles poured into snifters:

A - Pours a nice hazy hay color with light golden tones. Nice carbonation and egg shell white head. Lacing is nice that sticks to the glass.

S - Nice citrus notes with lemon and orange tones and touches of herbal gin. Nice bit of funk and barnyard horse blanket.

T - A nice light sour and funk flavor that is not over the top palate destroying. Those citrus notes of lemon and orange come back with a nice apricot flavors with nice pine and light gin, which is great because I don't like gin all too much. Really great herbal notes.

M - Nice tart and a little bit drying to the mouth but at the same time refreshing, which is fantastic. Good carbonation but doesn't just explode in your mouth.

O - What a fantastic brew. Light and crisp, but just full of nice flavors that is simple and a delight to drink. Will be seeking out another bottle of this, altough given its limited availability, I don't think I'll be able to get another one. A must try however. Thanks again Michael!

A - Hazy golden orange with a small white head

S - Sweet peach balanced with sour lactic acid

T - Sweet peach up front and then tart lactic acid. In the finish, lots of tart lactic acid and sweetness that comes through to make this a well balanced peach sour. Not much funk.

M - Tart carbonation, lots of fizz. Dry finish

O - Really good balance between the peach and the tartness. Really a solid beer

Shared by Wy on his bday!

Yellow body with white head. Sulfuric aroma; pungent yeast imparts intense clove and fruit esters. Can't say I enjoy this aroma, though I don't dislike it either.

Citrus fruit, funky yeast, huge ester presence again. Lots of lacto, mild acetic tingle. A bit too much carbonation; good body though. A strange brew for sure, and I happen to like this one.

A generous soul shared this at Flossmoor Station. Served in a plastic cup.

A - White foam settles to a thick collar and wispy, near-complete cap, leaving behind spotty lace. Murky peach-colored body.

S - This smells a lot like Upright Special Herbs - you can immediately tell that they used the same Ransom Old Tom gin barrels (or even blended Special Herbs into this beer). Lots of zesty botanicals, fresh citrus, funky tropical brett, stone fruits, mild lactic acidity, and a touch of oak.

T - The taste is quite similar - quite refreshing and zesty with all the fruity elements. Lactic sourness and oak show up late and ride out the finish. Again, quite a bit like Special Herbs, but perhaps not quite as gin-forward.

M - Pleasant active carbonation, dry finish, medium-light body, and no hard alcohol presence. Didn't realize this was only 4.75%!

D - My impression based on taste and aroma alone was this was a blend of Special Herbs and some sort of Saison. Apparently I wasn't too far off the mark. Not sure it was quite as good as Special Herbs, but the lower alcohol and blending made it a bit easier to drink in large volumes.

pours a slightly golden hazey with off white head. The nose is lemony and spicy, lots of an herb like spice. The flavor has a fair bit of lemon up front with some strange coriander spice type deal. Overyly acidic of citrus and spice. The feel is juicy and wet, a bit syrupy and lighter on the carb side.
