Cellared bottle. Burnt orange pour with a white head. Red currant along with lemon, pomegranate and light pear lead the nose with big floral notes, subdued hay, and great barnyard funk and light brett. Taste shows off the currant but again has the accenting fruits from the nose plus peach, with big funk, botanicals and now decent oak behind it all. Great balance while being super drinkable. Light bodied, but has wonderful fruity and funky textures to dance on the oak and subtle grains. Wonderful for a hot day or anytime you want a highly flavorful yet drinkable lambic

2018 vintage; consumed on 12/3/20

Pours a clear, lightly rusted orange body sporting an almost absurd level of effervescence giving way to two fingers brief, soapy, and slightly off-white foam; a virtually blank surface, thin, frothy collar, and no lacing whatsoever is what remains.

Aroma is punchy with assertive, horsey characteristics with a brighter zesting of old lemon peel upfront; red currant undertones are distant through the middle as wet grass, damp cellar, and fine mineral textures become increasingly redined and intense; notes of apricot/stone fruit mesh into peppery esters heavily laden in lacto/acidic funk into the close.

Taste opens with brief impressions of moldy cheese and heavy funk sporting a slightly grassy interlude into red currant and grapefruit peel surging past the mid-palate; orange oils and horse blanket funk remain steady toward notes of splintery oak and fading but juicy hints of red currant past the finish and through the swallow.

Mouthfeel is light-bodied and, paired with a casual jolt of fluffy carbonation, sees a taut density play with peaking, high-level acidity through the mid-palate; boggy acidity gives way to prickly tartness on the finish as a building, moister texture oozes past the swallow.

Pronounced, powerful funk, restrained acidity, and a fruit presence decidedly relegated to the backdrop (presumably via time in the bottle), this is a meditative sipper and thoughtful exhibition of the effects of age on the style; fruit steadily fades to funk, shifting focus while never entirely losing identity.

Drank 7/20/19 @ the Yarchives; poured from the bottle.

This was a pleasant, fruit forward treat; it didn't have a ton of depth as some of the Funk Factory beers can have, but it made up for that with an easy-to-quaff disposition. Great summer beer.

It poured a bright translucent effervescent peach color with a white foamy head that disappeared quickly. No sediment. A very beautiful and colorful beer without a doubt. At the nose, there is very heavy funk and horse notes. Juicy fruit tartness comes through with notes of peach. Really hard to put words into describing the aroma, it’s definitely untamed and wild; pushing forward a true fruit lambic beer. The taste incredibly juicy with tons of peach and nectarines - I’m well aware currants were added, not peaches. Perfectly sour and tart with the sweet fruit balancing out the acidity. Really surprised with the impressive notes of pitted fruits. It was light bodied in the mouth. My palate kept me wanting one sip after the other. Overall: this is an exceptional beer. I have very limited knowledge of that true lambic tradition, but regardless, this. Ever exceeded my expectations.
