look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Imbibed at OG on 7/20/13 for their one year anniversary.

Pours a murky sunshine/ golden barley color with absolutely no head to speak of. Tannins, feet, and allspice/Belgian yeast characteristics come together to give me a confused appearance. Very unique for sure, not sure what to make of it. Apple and yeast presence is big too. Those aromas transfer to the flavor. White grape and vinegar are prevalent with a vinous slight bitterness. Reminds me more of wine than beer, which isn't a bad thing. Feel is watery with a balanced finish.

Good, but not sure if I'd get it again.

Pour is a lightly hazed golden amber with a white head. Nose is lambic esq. Has some barnyard funk, dusty cellar brett, and faint notes of nectarine. Taste is less lambic and more fruity. Not sour. Moderate carbonation and a creamy body. Bright peach, nectarine and some grapefruit. There is some mushroom and earth funk mid palate to balance.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottle pour at the tasting at la casa de dirtinabottle.

Pours like hazy opaque apricot juice. One inch head, no lacing really. No visible carbonation.

Heavy, fresh apricot aroma, with some underlying barnyard funk and acidity. Lots of apricot though is very nice.

Tastes include musty tart apricot flavor, acidity, barnyard funk, leather, oak, and apricot juice. Medium to high sourness.

Light to medium bodied, tart and crisp mouthfeel. The sourness really lingers on the palate and lips after each sip.

A bit too sour for my (virgin) sour tastes, but this still had a lot of great flavors that I could enjoy.
