375mL at RBWG thanks to the brewers. Pours a clear, bright golden, white foam. Nose is a bit odd- phenolic, pickles, salty. Taste is sweeter, pickles, sugar, not funky, more sugar. Pretty much Abbey Tripel. Palate is a bit papery, sticky. Wasnt my favorite.

12 oz bottle to taster (thanks Mark!). Looks good; a transparent light orange with thin white lacing. Smells. And tastes good too; doughy and yeasty with a nice Chardonnay influence. Good on the palate too. Good beer!

Bottle at RBWG opening dinner. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Some honey, doughy malts, mild alcohol, white sugarss. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with further honey notes, light doughy yeast, hints of alcohol. Very nice.

This beer is wildly unique. The brett strain that 7venth sun uses is completely different then any other. Aroma is coconut, lime, banana, and potent oak. Taste is vinous, pina colada, and huge spicy oak. Great beer.

Bottle:   Bright straw, orange hued, hazy, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Big white wine nose, otherwise a bit mealy, yeasty, and a touch fruity.   Bright on the tongue, sweet, a bit Tripel like, with a strong Chardonnay aspect.   This one feels a bit warming.   Thankfully not too sticky.   Body and mouthfeel are smooth albeit moderate.   Finish seems to dominate with white grapes and/or Chardonnay.   Wonder how a 3 month old aged example would fair as this one the barrel dominates a bit too much for my tastes.

375mL pours clear deep gold with a near white head of foam. The aroma has sweet apple notes, pears, earthy apple skins and a soft pear like essence. The taste is similar with a nice mild tartness cutting through the apple to pear like fruity sweetness. This is lovely. The sweetness, the earthiness and the slight tartness create a pleasing harmony.

Hazy yellow pour, white head. Yeast, oak, white wine, light stone fruit notes. Flavor is nice with the barrel notes, yeast, hints of banana.

12 ounce bottle thanks to JW77. Pours a mostly cloudy orange color with a large fluffy white head. A big nose of dusty yeast and some sawdust. Seems like a fairly strong brett character, some lemon, robust citrus at times, woody, peppery. Very nice. The thick wax is unneeded.

11/14/12. 375mL (ish) bottle thanks to nulledge! Hazy golden pour with a small frothy white head. Nice aroma with wood, coconut, sweet candy, and more. Nice flavor as well, again with coconut, wood, sweetness, and some more complexity. A hint of corn in there is a minor distraction. Otherwise - nice!
