Bottle courtesy of nimbleprop, thanks! Hazy pale golden yellow color, white head. Aroma of bright lime. Taste is fresh but dusty straw and lightly sour summer fruit. Very nice.

nimbleprop (5085) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2014
22oz bottle sampled at the DC Epic Sour Tasting 2014. Pours a hazy gold with some spitty, white head. Nose is a nice blend of tropical fruit, straw, pineapple, a hint of medicine cabinet, a little cleaning solution. Flavor is tart, lemony, a little cleaning solution, rotting fruit, heavy dried citrus peel, some soap, some herb. Oily finish.

murky gold, shimmering, with thin white cap. Lightly hot nose, tons of lemon zest, lotion and plastics. Empty flavor with light lemon zest, thin mid with light plastics before a watery, heavy grain finish.

solidfunk (4321) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Nice light bretta pale ale reminiscent of an Orval-style Belgian pale ale. Cloudy orange pour with good head and lacing. Finishes light bitter/sour with some florals and sweetness. Bottle thanks to Nimbleprop at Epic Sour Tasting.

Another bottle share at Dark Lord Day 2014. At this point I could hardly read my notes but this is what I think they say. In the glass is a cloudy golden color with a white head. Nose of light fruit. Medium body. Flavor is light fruit as well and brett is obviously present. Finish is that classic Belgian finish. Good.

Poured a cloudy yellow-orange color with a wispy head. Aroma was sweet light fruit notes. Funky flavors, light pear or something? Yeast character.

craftycarl21 (2251) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Big thanks to nimbleprop! Cloudy deep orange pour, decent frothy white head. Nose and flavor are nice, with big perfumey hop character, rosehip, orange zest, hoppy bite, funky brett. Medium bodied. Nice stuff!

Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was a little fruity with a hint of brett. The taste was also of brett with a touch of yeast and fruits. Decent.
