    Thanks to John for standing in line and bringing this back the only day it was ever available, that is dedication and the thing that a beer God would do. This is sour, pucker up and turn your belly out sour. I didnt pick up the fruit so much but it was exeremely vibrant and alive. Whatever sour yeast they have harnessed, its a damn monster.

    Ultra rare bottle from PfoxyJohn - honored to share this beer with John and other beer friends at the Hootenanny. Freaking Gold Medal winner at GABF 2013. Light bubbly purply pink golden pour, white bubbly shrinking head, not much lacing. Rich fresh blackberry nose, sour and tart, light woodsiness, honeysuckle, more tart berries, nice yeast presence - funky, tart and sour for sure. Drink WAY bigger than 5% ABV. Fantastic Wild Ale from the Careys and New Glarus. Exquisite, best beer of the night. Can't thank Mr. John Pfister enough for sharing this rare treat.
