Bottle: Poured a deep golden/amber color ale with a large foamy head with limited retention and some light lacing. Aroma of sour notes with light acidic edge and some dry Brett notes. Taste is also dominated by sour and tart notes with an acidic edge with some lactic sour notes and a dry Brett finish. The vinous and/or hoppy notes are not easily identifiable. Body is light with good carbonation. Decent but really doesn’t stand out from the pack of new sour ales that are coming out.

New beer, never heard of it. Shared at a tasting, bottle 97/480. It's a hoppy Belgian Pale.

This beer pours a light bodied dark copper in color with a one finger, sudsy off white head. The nose is really citrusy and grassy with nice hop character. It has a nice lemon, lime rhind character. There is also a nice amount of clementine orange and grass. The flavors follow the nose. There is a phenomenal amount of hoppy citrus, lemon and lime rhind, Belgian yeast, and lemongrass. It has really nice flavor. It is more than you could want from the style. The hop levels are stellar. Overall this is a superb beer for the style. I don't know where this came from or why its numbered but it is really nice.

Edit: It's been mentioned that this is Pinot Noir barrel aged but it drinks like it was Chardonnay barrel aged.

The pour is a hazy golden straw color with a thin white head. The nose on this beer is awful. Sawdust and cardboard overpower the nose. Light lemon peel, maybe some oak, heavy on the bandaids, and a bit of dirt are there for good measure. The flavor has a subtle tartness, a bit of water, and huge cardboard and sawdust notes. Some bandaid, musty oak, lemon peel, and that might be about it. I tried to forget...

Thanks bstyle
Bottle 252/480

A - Pours a clear medium orange-red with a fluffy off-white head with good retention.

S - Funky, old hops, oaky. BRET!

T - Tart oaky, verry woody, buttery, lots of wild yeast and Bret. Over-Powering.

D - Good carbonation with a light body.

O - I like the idea, but the taste is so Bret heavy it misses, but I still somehow like it.

Notes from a tasting on 8/15. thanks to totoropanda for bringing this one out.

a - murky orange with a foamy head.

s - funky and awkward. some brett.

t - bathwater...in a barrel. chardonay bathwater with brett.

m - bretty after funk taste.

o - not good. seriously. bathwater. maybe the brett will do something magical with time, but right now this was pretty gross i really couldn't get through a few ounces.

Thanks to Jwiss22 for sharing this brew. Bomber # 459 pours a clear copper color in a short pils style glass. Some rising suds produce a yellowish tan head that retains decently. Some spotty and stringy fingers of lace stick to the glass.

The aromatics are medicinal and a bit carbonic. Some minor tropical notes emerge as it warms up that are slightly rindy to pitty like fruit. A little bit of sulfur and mineral aspect starts to take over as it warms up beyond ideal temperature.

The taste is herbal and rindy. A faint amount of zesty bitterness lays overtop mineral notes that are carbonic. A mild inclusion of tropical fruits and pith emerge as the brew warms up. It has a sudsy to soapy aftertaste which isnt that enjoyable.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Unfortunately, minerals and carbonic character tasting of bad city water lead the profile. The rest of this brews character is reminescent of a poorly made belgian blonde. I dont know what FFF was going for when they brewed this. While I appreciate the chance to try this, I certainly have no interest in having it again.
