Lovely, cloudy orange-lila color, reminding me of the pulp of a plum, no head at all.

Has a very sour, tart nose with fruity hints in it. I honestly can’t tell for sure that I am actually getting plum, but I try to imagine that :). If so, its reminding me of the pulp of unripe plums, with stone hints to it, blended with leather, old cheese and hay.

Unexpected low carbonated with a very sour, dry, citric foundation. Underneath the dominant, acidic tartness, refreshing sour notes become recognizable, with a subtle, lovely hint of fermented fruit to it. The fruitiness itself is surprisingly sour, of unripe plums and green apple, which is very soft on tongue, while the brett acidity dries out the palate. Not too fruity, compared to the sour aspect of the beer, a subtle addition. During the finish, acidity reaches its peak, overwhelming the fruit flavor completely, leaving back a slick, tremendous sourness.

375ml corked and caged 2013/14 bottle poured into tulip 19/10/14

A murky orange amber, the bubbles cling to the side of the glass in a big way, no much for head or lace

S heavy funk, plum, some strawberry, hay, more funk, vinegar, sour apple, barn yard, a little cereal, faint wood and more funk

T more of the same with more vinegar and sour apple, very funky, some lemon, not as fruity as the nose but still crazy complex, hard to wrap your head around

M tart and sour, slick almost to the point of slimy on the palate, lots of bubbles, the puckers strong almost turning my mouth inside out, funk and green apple linger for ages

O shes a sour alright, lots going on that's for sure, I could drink another and even with the hefty price tag I think a few will end up in the cellar

Another nice little rarity added to the crowded shelves in Alberta, I don't need too trade anymore if I just wait long enough everything will just come to me
