E!012:

A: Orange hue, a deep golden, with a nice white head that sticks around for a while. S: Blueberries, lemon, funk, some tartness. Some much funk, musty basement. T: Wow. Just a nice tartness, blueberries are still there after these 6 years. Lemon zest and a huge funk. M: The champagne yeast gives a pillowy softness. O: This is my white whale. Unbelievable funky sour. Just beautiful beer. I wish there were more

Thanks to JLindros for sharing. 2010 vintage

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear copper hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps and a light halo.

S - Aromas of big big funk, horse blanket funk, light floral fruit skins.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, loads of funk, bright horse blanket. Nice tannic blueberry skins, powdery blueberry candy.

M - Mouthfeel is brightly carbonated, crisp.

O - Overall this beer was rather nice. Loads of funk, nice light blueberry skins, pleasant.

Batch E!032.
Blind tasting, and had this one next to a E!027 Brute. I hadn't been a huge fan of the Brutes I've had before, but I liked 27 a LOT, and it definitely was my favorite between that and this beer in our tasting.

Cloudy pour, ruby-amber in color, with a thin, wispy, white head that dissipated, leaving a few stray bubbles on top. Well, even in a blind tasting, it was apparent there was either fruit or flower petals in this one. Funky aroma, brett, horseblanket, leather, light berries just barely peeking through. Twinge of tartness up front in the taste, floral notes, light berry notes that probably didn't come out as much as when the beer was fresh, funky yeast, leather, fresh cut grass. Light-medium body, prickly and somewhat acidic mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Very nice overall, even if Brute overshadowed it, IMO.
