3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle purchased at Mac’s on West Peachtree. It was the last bottle and damn near $20! Oh well, you only live once. I will say the beer has a nice haze yellow/orange (gold) color. It has a nice fluffy head that makes for a nice looking beer. Slight yeast aroma, but the thing I love about it (aroma) the most is the sour/tart brett aroma; nice aroma I must say. You get a slight sweet malt aroma with a nice sourish backing.Flavor is rather weak. There is that underlying tart/brett flavor, but then you also have that sweet malt and yeast flavor as well. The flavors aren’t popping out at me as I thought they would. The beer, for being as expensive as it is, didn’t really live up to its potential, flavor wise. The beer is smooth, but again, I just think the flavors need to make a little bit more of an impact on the tastebuds.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at 2009 GABF. 7.5% ABV. Pours a thin head over a pale yellow (SRM 3) slightly cloudy body.....nose with clove, ginger, lemon, orange, and a bit of funk.....taste is similar with layers of spice and fruit intermingling with barnyard and sweat....mouth feel is medium, carbonation low. This is a lovely complex thing with all the variations one would expect.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma has strong notes of peaches and other fruits, as well as quite a lot of spices - primarily coriander. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of peaches, spices, and some brettanomyces, leading to a dry, spicy, and slightly acidic finish.
