Peach colour in appearance. Definitely has that sour bret yeast aroma and some taste, but with a prominent citrus note as well. Unique.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap; a deceptively complex beer. Some brett and rye in the aroma, with a bit of the NW hops. Flavor had the same type of blend and really had some nuance. I donít think it all worked for me completely, but good overall.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Trion. Tart funky barnyard, woody, caramel malt aroma. Cloudy light amber with a small ivory head. Funky barnyardy brett, light sweet malt and a hint of grassy bitterness. Light body, soft carbonation. Too bad I managed to spill this one, because I could have drunk much more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Meat Bellís event at Taps 25. Nice and light with a bit of funkyness. A big improvement on the Oarsman by Bellís in the "sourish" category.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Love this beer in all kinds of ways. Pours cloudy orange with some lacing and not much head. Aroma has medium dose of brett without overpowering taste. Also some banana, booze and floral hops. Taste sour and bitter and sweet in great balance. Wild palate. Tap at brewpub.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Taps 25, Lansing. Hazy medium orange-brown body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. Nose spicy, reminiscent of a Belgian Tripel but drier and biscuity. Body a tad funky, spicy, with wet grass, hay, and floral elements playing off white wine notes. Lots of green apple and cloves as the beer warms. Reminds me of something Unibroue would brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange gold with a white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a good amount of flora and sweet grass with a bit of funk/Belgian yeast. Flavor starts with sweet grass, flora and a bit of sweet fruit with a Belgian yeast note in the finish.

On tap at Ashleyís Ann Arbor. Light amber pour with a small white head. Dry, slightly funky brett aroma with apple and caramel hints. Dry brett flavor, very slight tartness and apple flavor. Straightforward and quite nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light sweet citrus, sweet tarts, floral notes, and a hint of lemon. Itís a transparent amber with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus with a hint of sweet tarts. The finish is light-moderately floral with a just a touch of lemon. Itís light-medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall, itís reminds me of a sweeter version of Orval.
