Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma if full of brett, with some orange notes as well as some bread from the malt. The flavor is similar. I get a ton of brett and orange citrus notes, with a little bit of bread and biscuit malt. There is also a nice yeasty component to the flavor and a low amount of hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.

750 ml. bottle- Pours slightly cloudy golden with a bone white two finger head. The aroma is brett, white wine grapes, oak, not bad. The taste is sharp and tart, the brett is there, but not too much, dry bitterness, fruity without being sweet, oak. Body is a little thin, carbonation is high. Overall a little let down, I think it would be better with age, which is something I don’t usually say for IPA’s, everything would blend and it would be more brett forward.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 Smells of lemon zest, kumquats, and white pepper. Some rustic bread notes as well. Floral hops, and a touch soapy smelling too. Pours quite clear, very pale golden hue, three fingers of rocky white head. Almost zero sweetness, super dry. Lingering floral/soapy/funky aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light bodied, and super well carbonated. Fairly high acidity and carbonic bite on the back end as well. I would have rated this higher if it weren’t for the soapy component. I am hoping that component ages out over time.

Golden Straw, hazy with a thin head. Nice hops forward aroma with a lingering oak and yeast.. Nice IPA and malt flavors. Mixed with wine barrel and yeast flavor this is a complex brew.

Refrigerated bottle compliments of JoePeesie, poured into a shaker. Pours clear light golden with big fuffly white head. Pretty good head, medium body, medium carbonation, and grapefruit aroma. Taste is grapefruit, coriander, pepper, some oak, some funk, some orange, and finishes dry bitter hop. Pretty good, but not a favorite.

Tasted on 3/31/12 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle from the Beer of the Month club. Pours hazy yellow with a thick and fluffy white head that leaves thick and messy lace, leaving lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is bitter resin and citrus peel hops with some lightly sweet bread malt, and a very nice, spicy brett character. The flavor is the same resin and citrus peel hops backed by light bread malt, extremely dry, with the spicy and funky brett coming through nicely. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long bitter resin hops and funky, spicy brett finish.

A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a nice Brett with berry notes, musty notes, nice. In mouth, a nice perfumey malt with light rosewater, nice crisp hops, lingering bitterness and Italian spices, cloves, very nice. Bottle shared by the Hill Farmstead crew (thanks Shaun et al!), March 12 2012.
