Pours a grapefruit red color with a thin white head. Nose is wildly funky with some rotting vegetables, funky cheese, and citric notes. Taste starts off with grainy malts and some grape flavors. Moves on to some sweeter malt flavors mixed in with a vinous character. A lot of corn flavors finish it off, with lingering vinous flavors. Decent body that goes down well. Overall, this one didn't excite as much as I hoped. It seemed a little rough around the edges in the nose and taste. It might settle out over time...I would sit on this.

Bottle shared by Vav at Alex's (Masterski) Birthday shindig at Pipeworks. 750 ml bottle served in a New Glarus taster glass. Bottle April 2012.

A: Pours a cloudy cherry color with some amber hues. A frothy white head forms on the pour and recedes to a nice bubbly color that leaves some splotches of lace.

S: Baby diaper up front. Definitely sweet grape with light oak. There is a mild white wine flavor on the finish. Slighlty tart with some big funk.

T: Grape juice like flavor is up front. There is an oak body with some sweetness. A slight acidity takes over and then this weird funk just takes over on the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with a nice carbonation. Funky finish.

O: This just had some odd flavors to it. I wanted to like it as it sound delicious, but the brett just really provided some off flavors that didn't mesh well with the base beer. It seems like it's night and day between the tap and bottle versions so I would like to seek that out.

A: Reddish-orange-brown in color, lightly cloudy. Forms virtually no head and leaves no lacing.

S: Aroma is rather vinous, mixed with notes of wood and cardboard. Lots of foxy grape, with some notes of brett as well.

T: Tart and very vinous, with notes of acidic red wine, concord grapes, and oak all mixed with a slight funkiness.

M: Tart, lighter body, with a spry carbonation.

O: I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of sours, but I do feel I can appreciate a quality sour when I come across one. However, I simply did not care for this beer. Between the brett and the heavy vinous quality, I just got the impression this was a wine that went bad.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 4/2013.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy tan 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 malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and fruit 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 a pretty good beer that is tasty and quite easy to drink.
