Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #1 Bottle #687.

Slightly cloudy, but with an interesting opaque mix of faint tangerine orange, and washed out apricot yellow colors. One finger but small head that is frothy, but has big staying power. The body is just loaded with some of the most fascinating carbonation I've seen. Pinhead white and fine bubbles and lots of them… just everywhere, and they creep up in a bowed way, like racing through and interstellar galaxy or something. Really neat looking brew, fascinating actually.

Wonderful solid but also controlled and simple aroma. Large fruit tones of apricot and nectarine, peach sour fuzz throws in the mix as well. It's very hard to get this fruit note pinpointed, bottle mentions "exotic fruit" and boy is that a bang on description if there ever was. I'll say lilikoi but not as tart. Good sense of oak aging coming off of this, it seems nice and hinting thick fruit and malt and just a faint hair of soft cedar like wood. Very impressive.

Hot dam I am in love on this first sip. Mouthfeel is just absolutely perfect in every way. A rich creamy texture with a mild sweetness gives some vanilla tones, but also nice soft carbonation, champagne like feel but not with any of the scorching dryness. Malt sweetness comes out like mild honey and the fruit just comes excellently. Huge juiced peach qualities, and big soft yeasty and bread notes. Mild citrus as well with tangerine orange coming nicely. Drizzled peach with clotted cream like mid palate, huge juicy tones, but virtually no acidic like qualities you would have on most lambics.

It's the hidden magic Fou Foune as far as I am concerned, but a real unique animal with giant fruit quality, mix of sweet and muted tangy sour quality, and. Aging could be argued made a difference, but man I don't have the patience for this kind of thing, just stick it in my veins.

I really don't like this style and don't understand that people would like something that taste like bile or vomit. Beer should be pleasant and not be like vinegar.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour malt, grain, fruit, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour fruit, funk, and chlorine flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a nice smell, but the chlorine taste I am getting is odd.

Thanks to Aaron for this one!

Hazy orange with a charged head of billowing soapy foam that is slow to recede. Small amount of spotty lace, good surface coverage.

Aroma is lemony, a permeating sterile gauze funk from the Brett seems to eclipse any nuances.

Tastes of lemon, grapefruit, and crabapples, tart and fruity traces of white wine, trace minerality, fairly full bodied. Firm residual tartness, slight aftertaste of wet straw and grain husks. Well carbonated with a brisk champagne effervescence. Italy's attempt at Cantillon, close but seems a bit far off on the details.
