3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Now Im not screaming that this is a great beer or anything but the rates are way off here IMO. This beer is good and interesting. We definitly have that wild yeast stinky farmhouse smell going on here. A sweet melon nose kinda lingers underneath the sweat. Copper to brown in color with a small white head that petered away rather quidkly. A bit of a sour thing happening but not largely, interesting back flavors of sweet fruit , rock candy and spiciness. mellows as it sits. I had this at the brewhouse so maybe its a bit lack luster in the bottle?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy golden hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is straw, earthy, funk, barnyard, peppercorn. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a peppery finish. Overall this is a really nice brew.

Bottle pour. Sour apple aroma with other fruit. Bold peppercorn flavor with dark fruit. Finishes a little tart, but more spicy. Not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Golden with one finger head. This has held up well. There’s substantial Brett which is tart but not quite sour. Very nice fruitiness, especially pineapple. Much of the other flavors appear to have faded.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. First the bad, the brettanomyces strains are giving a musty character, reminiscent of sweety sock. Now the good, going beyond the must is ripe tropical fruits, mango, Papya, soft spicing that is cleared from my palate by the tartness. This is fairly sweet and malty. Tasty beer.

A decent malty sour beer. The sweet malty breadiness doesn’t completely conceal the sour funk.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Bottle: bottled in April 2008, enjoyed in July 2013. Over five years old. Cloudy golden body with a straw bottom; broken and chunky, off-white head is volatile and bubbles up nicely. Aroma is funk city. Wet hay, bubblegum, lightly tart pineapple, heavy bandaid, dank and musty funk, wet cellar floor type stuff. Touch of grassiness here and there... but the Brett has run rampant after five years in the bottle. Taste is similar; loaded with musty forest floor, sweaty horseblanket, clumpy yeast, damp wood, rotten pineapple, unabashed funk. Finishes with mild sweetness and Belgian spices; peppery, floral, grassy - possibly the hibiscus? This may have sucked in 2008, but time has treated it fairly well. Now it’s an old, funk Brett bomb... if that’s your thing.

Pours a slightly hazygolden with a medium white head. Aroma has nice bretty funk and a touch of hibiscus. Flavor has some fig but a bit of a band aid note...subtley spicey. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry bitter/band aidy/bretty finish.
