aaaaaaahhhh! surprise death cork on this one, undid the cage, turned to change the channel, and boom! slight gusher, bought about 6 months ago..6:19pm august 25th 2009.. . pours a simmering gold with lots of champpagin style bubbles.. very spritzy! .. . i want to sail around the world.. . fantastic amount and orientation of foam .. . lots of playful bretty goodness, light bitterness with small whiffs of tropical fruit, wonderfully light yet assertive.. . this is a very easy and fun beer to drink... what about the terrorists? thats right, terrorists... this would be ridiculous on tap! OK, some free associations from my infancy. A beach ball. A Dog. A Log. A poodle. A Noodle. A doodle. ..

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Barcade. Hazy yellow-gold pour with a thick sticky white head. The aroma is great. Loads of sweet/tart pineapple and a lovely bretty spicy funkiness. Fairly fruity nose with a touch of lactic tartness as well. The pineapple character lingers nicely on the finish along with a touch of minerally character that lends a nice dryness along with the acidity. Warming brings up a bit more soft tart fruitiness and kiss of mint on the back. Awesome stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I thought this was delicious and extremely well made, definitely a good palate cleanser and very clean. Soft mouthfeel, with some sour bretty notes and some bitter citrus flavors as well as some earthy grassiness. Tart fruits, some green apple skins, but stays very clean throughout. Nicely done.
