Pours bubbly fizzy golden with small white head. Aroma is sour funk and mineral. Flavor is a papery dry bitterness. Spicy and peppery. The funk is mild, but it is pretty good. Nice spritzy mouth feel. Finishes dry.

Nice beer, but a touch too sweet for me. It almost felt like this was made sweet to try and fit to style, but I can’t say I have drank anything in Belgium with this kind of sweetness. I’d like to have it again with a bit of age on it, to see if the sweetness mellows with time.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the brewery. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some Brett dryness, floral hops, and pale malts with light notes of caramel. Flavor the same with hints of fruits. Average texture. Not a bad beer, but I sort of wish it was just Brett and the Belgian yeast was left out.

Drought. Cloudy bright orange with smalll foamy white head, fruity aroma, high carbonation, sweetish spicy taste with bitter ending. Medium finish goor brew but I am sure I would enjoy it more if I had not had cold!

Fresh 2014 edition on draught at King’s Head, pours semi clear golden orange with 2 finger head. Nose is musty juicy citrus, orange candy, soft yeasty fruit, not a whole lot of bretty funk going on. Taste is round bodied yeasty fruit, cracker, wheat, orange peel, tangerine. Finish is dry with fruity yeast, citrus, and grain, but still very minimal brett presence.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Pinocchio’s. Light gold pour, little head. Aroma and flavor was really spicy. A little overboard on the spices, honestly. Pear fruit flavor, dry on the tongue. Not terrible but probably not worth the price either.

Draft @ GBBF. The pour’s light amber with a small head. Slightly soupy. Not an attractive pour. The nose is of strong earthy Belgian yeast. Some honeyed pear. The taste is mildly bretty. Peach, grape skin. Red apples. Medium body, soft carbonation.
