2008 Vintage consumed April 2015. Soft yet very nice presence of oak. Well carbonated. Had a very minimal woody nose - which i would place on its age. Certain whale status. I would say it lived up to its hype.

This beer is a erotic sex show in your mouth. The smoothness and body are perfect. For a non fruited wild ale it's absolutely amazing. Worth the price and adventure in trying.

Pours a bright gold and leaves a finger of white head. Smell is bright citrus, white wine, light malts. Taste has a good amount of acidity, citrus, light hay funk, good amount of sour. Real nice.

2014 Vintage
- Pours a hazy golden yellow, with some lively carb.

- Smells is bright citrus and acid with some mild barnyard funk.

- Flavor hits with juicy and tart peach, acid, oak, some funky hay and a good pucker at the end. Flavors fade from palette pretty quickly, leading the tastebuds to beg for another gulp.

- Nothing over the top here. Not the most funky, most juicy or sour, not the most complex. But it has all the features of a great sour and in beautiful harmony. A pleasure and a treat. Is it worth the price tag? Hard to say...
