Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Batch 7/12. Bottle # 1397/1516.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some fruity and berry aromas. Taste is much the same with lots of berry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice fruity aromas and flavors.

Bottle opened on 2.21.13
Batch 7/12
Bottle 1443/1516

A - Pours a reddish-amber with a fluffy large cream-colored head that fades slowly.

S - Funk, brett, stinky cheese, fruity sweetness.

T - Blueberry, then oak, finishes with a touch of cheese.

D - Good carbonation with a light body.

O - Very tasty and nice, the previous bottle was much more dominated by the stinky cheese than this bottle. One of my favorites of the series.
