3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of yeast, spices, mild lemony fruits, soap and yeast. Flavor of grass, yeast, citrus fruits, toffee and mild grassy malts. Bitter palate with a fruity palate. More like an farm-house saison than an IPA.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Second batch. The cork absolutely flies off with a boom.
Be careful pouring this one, it is super-carbonated. It pours a lightly hazy gold with a big foamy white head that likes to linger.
The smell is awesome. Clean brett notes, citrus, decent malt bill underneath. Oak mellows.
The flavor is also good. Honestly the hops don’t come through much, it is more of a witbier with brett and citrus than anything but it is a refreshing take on it even with the odd experimentation. The Bitter Monk was unbelievable,the Whiteout Wit was horrendous, this is closer to Bitter Monk but not quite as awesome. The sweetness and oak come through with a few more sips. Brett is tame with a hint of funk and medicinal flavor, pretty low tartness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml cork and caged bottle shared at Campground Brewdown. Poured an odd greenish/yellowish body with a large foamy white head with lots of rising effervescence. The aroma is super potent with notes of brett, dirty diaper, rotting fruit, dirty citrus rind, dirty hops. Light super fizzy body with a quick fading very dry aftertaste. Flavor of brett, lemons, bread crusts, funk, citrus. This beer has a lot going on with it, wonder what will happen to this with time.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle nearly explodes and I have to pour this guy over a 15 minute interval at the start. The pour is a simply beautiful bright effervescent hay golden yellow with a thick fluffed up white head. Once the head dies to a mere half finger and the carbonation slows, I delve into the nose. Aroma is yeasty with peppery spices and zesty citrus. Sweet fruits and mild estery goodness and spices with coriander and peppercorns prevalent. A bit of woody and earthen richness and bretty dryness opens up on the finish. Not too hopped up but awesome complexity on this brew.
