4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012-09-20. Hazy dark pastel orange, modest off-white head. 3+ Light alcohol, subtle funk overtones, very light barnyard and funk, sweet and sour pale malt. Aroma is slightly muted by the a$$hole standing right by the door out front with a joint. 7+ Flavour is softly and pleasantly sour, modest but lovely fruit character that I struggle to define - sort of tropical notes, accents of sweet lemon but not quite. Very mild yet very nuanced bretty funk. Lingering not quite sweaty funk in the finish. 7+ Super smooth average to light palate, very soft carbonation. More subtle than I was hoping for, but holy schnikes this was drinkable. One of two I went back for at the end of the night. Volo Funk Night, Toronto

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap at Bryden’s, June 25 2014) Pours hazy pale gold with a big bubbly white head that is short lived but lacy. Aroma lightly fruity, lemon pastry, slightly tart, sweet pale malt, a light funk and a bit of sweaty character. On the palate, a bit of sour/tart fruit with lightly sweet grainy pale malt, herbs, lemon overtones, and a mineral character. Brett funk is restrained but definitely there, especially in the finish with some sweaty tartness. The minerality and yeast make the finish rather dry and there’s a very light bitterness in the aftertaste. Body on the lighter side of medium but with a creamy soft effervescent carb. This is a fairly subtle beer and the Brett is hardly overwhelming, but the drinkability is high and as farmhouses go it’s a nice take.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Boxer Saison - pale straw pour. Huge rocky head. The nose is softly earthy and a little bit fruity. moderate sweetness but there is a soft and appeali g tartness that is pretty lovely. A touch of minerally flintiness - I’d love to see this in three more months - Brett just starting to show up and dry it out. Great bones in this one.
