Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, funk, acidic, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, fruit, funk, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink, but you can tell this one definitely has some age on it.

Serving type: bottle.

Not sure how this used to taste but it's quite sweet. It balances out the sourness but it doesn't quite do it for me. Still tasty though overall!

This poured out as a nice amber color, it has a fading cream colored head on top. The smell of the beer is loaded with oak and funk. The taste is pretty much as expected, it's got some caramel flavors up front but the lactic acid just crushes that and turns all the sweetness to a tangy funk. The feel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall I know this one is pretty rare, and I am fortunate to have gotten the chance to try it.
