3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
clear sparkling pale gold with a tall large-bubbled white head. perfumed white grape and brett band-aid / plastic in the first whiff, developing more spice and fruit notes as it opens. lively carbonation, light body, mild to medium tartness, mild oak presence. wonderfully explosive but still soft carbonation across the middle, it’s surprisingly full and rotund for having such a light and delicate malt base. dry white wine and floral esters and brett must abound. a bit herbal at times, then more floral, then more wheat-focused, then a combination of white grapes and brett that comes across a little like botrytis. shape-shifting, restrained, balanced and delicious.

Been looking forward to this for a while, and it doesn’t disappoint. Pours straw yellow, with thin lacing head, good solid aroma of hops and brett. the taste is smooth and complex, surprisingly soft which must be down to the water profile. Overall and exceptional beer, if only I could get my hands on a few more bottles.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Blonde très pâle, jaunâtre et trouble. Extra mousseuse. Au nez, acide lactique de fermentation spontanée, citron, pin, conifère... En bouche extrêmement complète, l’amertume de zeste se marie a la perfection avec la douce acidité. Finale décapante de houblon résineux

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light yellow with big white head. Aroma is big lemon brett funk. Up front is the sour funk, then herbal spoicy yeast flavors, hop bitterness, and a dry tart slightly spicy finish. Very nice..... not for everyone though.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 mL bottle. Batch #6, April 2014.
Pours a hazy gold color with a thick white head. Plenty of carbonation rising to the top. Aroma has a lot going on: fruit, spice, grass/herbs, malt, sourness and some yeast. Medium bodied and a little sticky, the taste has a lot in common with the aroma but the yeast and grassiness seem to take over with a touch of wood and hops. The finish is a little sour with the malt making a bit more of a presence after the swallow along with a touch of sweet wine. This is a good one!
