2002 sticker 750 ml bottle generously shared by cpferris. Big thanks to Chad. Pours a clear amber with a small white head that settles to a ring. The aroma is super funky. Lots of must. Grapefruit, mushroom, forest floor. The taste is quite tart and funky. There is grapefruit, lemon, and apricot. The Finish is very tart and funky with some oak and a bit of astringency. Medium body. Low carbonation. Quite great. Possibly the funkiest beer I've had.

2002 vintage shared by cpferris at a recent tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Pours near flat, clear and golden. Reminds me of iced tea or close to it. The nose/taste is very funky as expected with scents of earth, soil, stone fruits, un-ripened berries and slight green apples. Despite looking near flat there is plenty of fine carbonation on the palate. Fuzzy mouthfeel,good dose of acid. Reminds me of sweet tarts. Solid all-around. Thanks again Chad.

2007 vintage

A: Rich golden, great clarity. Pours with a bit of fizz but is mostly flat.

S: Deep brettanomyces earthiness, vinous, pears and cooked apples, a tiny bit of acidity on the nose.

T: The acidity is more apparent in flavor. Tangy oak, beautiful fruitiness ranging from pear to grape, tangerine with a twang. Everything enveloped in brett funk.

M: Low carbonation, very dry.

Complex and deeply earth, I prefer this over the golden blend gueuze from 3F.
