2011 vintage; drank 2/26/15 @ Harvest Hop Haus.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Hazy orange appearance.

Minimal off-white head; minimal lace.

Mildly tart strawberry nose; intoxicating!

Medium mouthfeel.

Mildly tart strawberry flavor up front; nice sweet strawberry finish, crisp & dry. A delicious, balanced sour. I never had this fresh, but it certainly aged wonderfully.

12.7 fl oz bottle poured into a Founders snifter.

Appearance: pours a hazy copper color with a thin white head.

Smell: very pungent acidity, bready malt undertones

Taste: acidity is much more restrained than expected. Very balanced, apple cider with a clean light malt profile with a hint of caramel malt with a very clean acidity on the finish. Mellow, clean flavor. If you noticed, I used the word clean 3 times. Very clean.

Mouthfeel: crisp, and...clean. Low carbonation gives it a very smooth feel.

Overall: extremely drinkable, refreshing.

Received 3x years ago (almost to the day) from Benpopper in a fantastic trade... Thanks Ben. Shared tonight with COOPMatt and Buckeyeboy. Pours a slightly hazed orange with a short-lived white head... still provides decent lacing.

Nose is big juicy and sour... a tiny bit acetic, but not bad given the age and the time spent in foudre... a bit of red wine and the brett really opened up on a later pour.

Flavor is sour, but not face-melting... surprisingly balanced... something that I associate with tannic pie cherries.. a touch acetic on the back-end and perhaps something that I associate with acetone, but I think Matt poisoned my well with that.

Nice body and carbonation... has held up surprisingly well... Thanks again Ben, we should hook up again some time.

3.75's across the board.

Poured a clean orange/amber with a thick and creamy long lasting tan head, good carbonation running throughout the beer for a good long while.

The nose is very tart and a bit cidery, lightly sweet with some touches of tropical fruit mixing in with the funky bretty charachter.

The flavor is mildy sweet with a bit of apple and pear and a touch of white cheese, finishes with a dry tart funky basement quality, has just a bit of sourness at the very end.

The mouthfeel is creamy with a dry finish.

Very nice wild ale, nice combination of fruit notes and sour qualities.
