3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
draft at local option chicago. Pours deep golden with a small white head. Aroma is very tea and spice forward, herbal and fruity with some citric zest and pepper. Flavor has much the same, lots of cooking spice, and herbal again, pepper with a brett finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle... Thanks to an ATG brewer for kindly giving this to me. Shared with robotopera and friends. Interestingly, some yeast chunks float up to the top of the bottle upon opening. I got the first pour, including the couple chunks. Hazy orange color. Minimal ring of white head. Just a few dots of lace. Big orange citrus and spice in the nose. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, light carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Kind of a bright, refreshing flavor. Moderate spicy taste, kind of peppery, light herbal factor that I imagine is the bay. Light peppery heat on the back end. Kind of zesty, light to moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter. Nice light tart taste, light citrus works well with the rest of the beer. Nice interesting brett beer to share and try. Pretty solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small sample at Spuyten Duyvil from a bottle: Pours murky gold with a white head. Aroma is spicy, definitely getting hints of the pepper, but not so much of the bay leaves, some perfume, and some farmhouse funk. Body is pretty light, but it has a nice bite from the pepper and/or hops. Contrary to what the bottle of the beer would have you believe, this was a rather subtle beer that didn’t try to hit you over the head with anything.

Sampled at mwbbf. C lear gold. This is a really thin feel. Somehow i get dandylions. Wild funk and Bret are light. I just don’t get a lot of flavor here.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Waxed 750 from Whole Foods. Pours hazy straw with fizzy carbonation and fast-dissipating white head. Nose is hopcitrus, funky yeasty Brett, lemon, florals. Tastes of tart fruit, hopcitrus, spare funky and yeasty flavor, and a complex and superb finish. This one is delicious.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a hazy apricot with foamy white head. Smells and tastes yeasty, citrusy, and bretty with a soft, well-balanced bay leaf presence. Pleasant on the palate. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in a glass. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of light Brett funkiness, some citrusy and light fruits, pale and caramel malts, light pepper and spices, and light hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A solid beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
15 cl. draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Clear pale golden with a white head. Tastes of lavender and bay leaves, spices, hay, yeast, soap, light citrus and grapes, herbal with some Monster energy touches. Light bodied. Not as bad as the previous sounds but definitely odd and honestly I have no idea where they were going with this. Not really getting brett nor pepper (maybe some white pepper if I really try). Odd one out but interesting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Beer Temple. Slightly hazy golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of strong spice, like cardamon (probably the bay leaves), light Brett funk, lime. Flavour is medium sweet, light peppery, strong spice, again very cardamon-like and a little like eucalyptus, light lime, light tart, spicy and light peppery finish. Light-bodied. A bit too spicy imo.
