UPDATED: JUN 26, 2011 Also had on tap at Brick Store Pub on 6/25/11 for their 14th Anniversary.

2 oz pour from the keg at Brewvival on 2/26/11. Another one of my favorites from the day. deep yellow / golden pour with a slim white head. big brett nose with layers of oak and vanilla - really nice. medium body with vanilla, lots of oak, brett and light fruits. semi-dry finish with light fruit sweetness and brett. outstanding!!!

Had this at the Night of the Funk, November 5, 2010. Poured from the tap into a tasting glass. The color was a hazy orange with a thin wisp of foamy white head and some slight lacing on the glass. The smell is a bit of vanilla and some good funky flavor with some oak flavor. The taste is a little sweet and a bit funky. This is a little young so the sour character in this beer is just starting to mix itself into the the malty flavor. The vanilla is nice and the woody flavor is there to complete the flavor profile. The feel of this beer is pretty smooth with a medium body and a nice funky feel to it. Complex but light this beer goes down quickly and has a nice aftertaste.

Lubiere (10695) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
A hazed golden sour ale with a thin lacing white head. A superb aroma of ground cherries, lactic points, epsom salts, quite nice. In mouth, a classic balanced sour ale woth sour cherries, tart wheat, very smooth and delicious. On tap at Brewvival, Feb. 26 2011.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
dark red-amber, translucent with a chunky beige collared head. Brett forward nose, lots of mango and grapefruit, bit eggy and thin. Very fruity flavor, again Brett heavy, very light, lots of sticky sweet yeast in the finish. Fizzy body. Most deviation-like beer ive had yet. Brett is a bit overkill, and it lacks the temp b3 softness and total rounded quality of dev. Still very nice, also bit like interlude. Not as hoppy or light as confluence, but also not as metallic/syrupy.

4oz pour at the Lupulin Reunuless at RFD DC. Pours a hazy, orange with a frothy, white head. Nose is awesome, fruity, candy sugar, a little band aid, light cheese, some tartness. Flavor is tart, limes, lemon peel, light tropical fruit,m some coconut, white grapes. Full bodied, tart, lightly acidic finish. Plenty of wood throughout. Nice apple flavors. I loved every bit of this, went back for several additional pints.

Sour candy beer. Yet very refreshing. Had this in a trio of LBB, Interlude, & Vrienden. Liked this the best. I’m a whore for bretts tho.

On tap at Novare. I liked this a lot more than the Big Little...pity there’s not more of it to go around! Wonderful belgian strong with a great funky barnyard aroma and smooth funky yogurty taste. Mouthfeel was smooth and crisp alcohol is well hidden.

Big difference from the big little beer. Clear orange brown pour. Lots of oak on the nose. Vinous, creamy and funky. Tart fruit notes. Tart woody flavor. Creamy finish with a bit of chalk. Decent beer.
