Only 7 barrels-I would have done a growler. Peach colour with active little white head, lace in glass. Yeasty aroma. Smooth lambiclike, well balanced, long finish. Creaminess from wheat, fruit tartness from cherries.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a ring of white lace. Aroma of sour cherries with mild brettanomyces. Flavor of sour cherries and mild brettanomyces. The body is light with a dusty mouthfeel and soft carbonation.

En fût-En premier lieu, je déteste les lambic. Odeur de rouge à lèvre de couleur rouge troublée. Rondeur à l’arrière de la bouche. Goût amer et dégueulasse.--Draft-Firstly, i hate lambics. Smell of cosmetic, red cloudy. Palate on the back side of the mouth. Sour and awful taste.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 The Lure:
Sweet fruitiness of cherries and orange zest sitting surrounded by decorative lacing. Not enough signs of the interior wilderness, either there isn’t enough brett, or it hasn’t had time to develop yet.
Hushed wilderness touches the cherries, peaches, and curaçao(?). Wheat malt tartness matches that of the yeast’s, but it still doesn’t reach the intensity levels I would have desired. Low carbonation imparts a classy feel, but all in all it is much sweeter than what I would have expected in a bretty ale. This still remains a beautiful creation, don’t get me wrong.
Encouragement will nurse future leaps.

This is my first sample from this brewer and it was quite an ambitious sample. Orange/yellow with a thin but stubborn head. Great lacing. Smells breaddy with some dust, cherries, cognac, grass. Taste is sour but in a good way with some decent juniper and coriander notes alongside what can best be described as stale butterscotch. Champagne like palate and finish. Very bold for a brewpub.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fully diminishing off-white head. Body is cloudy orange to red. An unquestionably weird nose that reminds me more of horseradish cheese than anything else. The brett may not have had the time to fully mature and take shape, but for now, we have faint horsey hints that are at the service of juicy pineapple and wheaty tropical fruit dominant flavours. Medium bodied, sticky texture, light carbonation, very sweet and not very sour at all. A step in the right direction, but the challenge may have been too big initially.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2005 Glass at the brewpub. Hazy, opaque and chunky orange-pink with a smallish lasting head...sour wheat, cherry, vanilla and licorice in the strongly earthy nose....faint fruity cherry-sour flavor at first, becomes much more pronounced midpalate, joined with wild thyme, a touch of blueberry perhaps and just a hint of dark chocolate...medium body, fairly yeasty, average carbonation, quite dry and sour to finish.
