Teku glass. After opening, very lively carbonation. The beer alomstly exploaded out of the bottle.

A: Hazy orange liquid with very big head, which dissapears very quickly, no lacing;

S: Very nice funky aroma - lemon, apple juice, basement, oak and wine. You can smell lactic acid. Touch, but only touch of booze.

T: The start is sour, kicking and sharp - quite funky. Definetely you can taste apple juice, in between some sweetness - honey The flavors are very tart, gastric, yeasty. The end in unbalanced - some malts, sour fruits. The aftertaste is pretty mild, dull and animal hair like. Despite high ABV (10%), no alcohol recognizable.

M: Medium bodied and dry. Finish is semi-sweet. Very lively carbonation in the beggining. No alcohol warmth.

O: The beer is really aliving, like caffeine kick. Maybe some say that it's pretty unbalanced and chaotic. The Phi is very drinkable, you don't feel any alcohol. Great for hot, summer days.

Poured into an Ommegang stemmed glass. No freshness date. Be forewarned: my bottle was a bit of a gusher.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves tiny clots behind.

S- Funky/tart aroma with some Brett character and big acidity.

T- Great balance of tartness, funk and bready malt. Dry and tangy with notes of green apple, pineapple and lemon. Alcohol is very well hidden underneath all the acidity. Soily aftertaste.

M- Moderate pucker for the style with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- A very nicely done wild ale that gives just as much funk as it does sour while still packing a hearty alcohol punch.
