this is so good, one of the best beers in colorado, and in my opinion, far superior to any of the fruited versions of this. in my top couple of favorites of all time from these guys, just so sensational. no clue what hops they use, but it ends up being so complex and funky that it tastes to me like a hoppy gueuze, like a blend of sour and funky beers, wheaty based but clean without sacrificing anything. the hops are juicy but not real bitter, both oak and wheat tannic properties, tons and tons of woody mellowing properties, a smoothness, without necessarily the sweet flavor of the oak, its like older, oude if you will, more earthy and deep, but the hops keep it fresh and lively too, that juxtaposition makes this one of a kind. i drank mine way too fast, but this warms up really well too, more funk than sour, way more funk than any of the fruited ones seem to have. champagne carbonation is epic, nice jazzy medium body, hearty and grainy still at its base. really fun and attractive beer, i have yet to have it from the bottle, but i am going to make a point to do just that. seriously amazing beer. this keeps them near the top for me.

This beer poured out as a hazy golden color with a white head on top. Some soapy bubbles hanging around the glass. The retention is thin and some scattered lacing. The smell of the beer is funky as hell out of the bottle. The aroma from the glass is still quite pungent on the nose. The taste of the beer is tart up front with a really nice oat or wheat-like finish. Some subtle notes of honey and plenty of Brett. But the grains finish on a very impressive clean note in the after taste. The mouthfeel is easy going, nice carbonation and drinkable. Overall I'm very impressed with this beer. Really impressive flavor. Just all around very good.

A: Poured into a tulip glass to a bright golden yellow that is just slightly hazy with a dense two finger white head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of lemony tartness, funk and some oak
T: Taste of barnyard funk and horse blanket with some pleasing tartness with tastes lemony with a little oak. Swallow is more lemony tartness, oak, and lingering funk
M: This beer is on the lighter side of medium on the palate with carbonation that is effervescent but not prickly while the beer has a drying finish from the acidity
O: Overall this is a really nice beer with some good flavors and complexity. Not bracingly sour but definitely a nice pucker along with a good bit of funk. Worth a try if you like the style.

Bottle opened on 3.12.13

A - Pours a cloudy darker orange with an active fizzy light tan head that fades quickly.

S - Funk, Brett, Hops, pears, subtle citrus-unique and nice.

T - Brett, oak, hoppy-grass, citrus, buttery wood.

D - Mild carbonation with a medium body.

O - A very unique and delightful beer. It's a hard one to place at this point, but who cares, it is good.
