4/5 rDev -1%
A 750 mL bottle courtesy of Rochefortnh10.
A: The ale is a a pale straw/orange color, obscured by a touch of haze anda steady stream of carbonation. A finger of head was quick to whittle away to a constantly-replenished white band.
S: The aroma is a mild funkiness followed by sweet fruit. Lemon and apple with a touch of pepper and some grassiness. A lightly bretty finish.
T: A peppery heat starts things off right before a mustiness takes over. The sweetness from the nose is gone, replaced by a rather dry flavor that has only the barest of fruitiness. Grassy hops are present throughout but not too strong. I swished around a sip and found that more fruits emerged, apricot and pineapple are sparse but there. The peppery blast and and mustiness is a formidable combination.
M: The mouthfeel's wild flavor is the dominating aspect, creating some heat and a bone-dry taste. The fruits are hard to find but nice when they finally come around.
D: This one doesn't taste like 7+%. The heat and funk make me instinctively reach for another sip.

Slightly hazy golden color with thin head.
Fruity slightly bready nose
notes of banana citrus and a mild bitter finish.
Overall a mildly sour beer with lots of fruitiness and fresh hop bitter
this was the June 2012 bottle. would like to try an older version.
