4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle with thanks to glkaiser! Pours a crystal clear amber with a medium creamy beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is light overall with notes of citrus, herbs, yeast, pine, Brett. Flavor is bretty, citrus, pine, light sweetness, herbs, light plus bitterness. Medium body, but a nice oily mouthfeel. This is really a Belgian IPA IMO, but it is nice. The Brett character rivals Anchorage in its quality. I am a big fan of this one.

Picked this up at Malt and Vine
Pours a crystal gold with a sheet of whites. Smells of pineapple, grain, some hay, some nice amber malt. Good nose. Flavor is grain, cardboard, some funk, some other goods. Medium bodied with moderate carb. Nice beer, but nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good deal of toasted malts up front, a little bretty funk, some fruity aspects as well. Interesting. Pours golden amber, fizzy white head, soft lace. Flavors of toasted malts, a little caramel even, oranges, funky brett notes, dry with a peppery hop presence in the finish. Nicely carbonated, good drinker.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at BR. Pours a clear copper golden with smaller creamy head. Light bright fruity esters in front. Banana, apple, white grape, musty hay, bits of doughy grain and faint pepper. Very peppery up front, some slightly tart mostly bright white grape, not much malt showing at all, dry winey long peppery finish. Bit thin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold, light haze. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, spicy yeast, also fruit. Taste is sweet with some resinous bitterness. Pretty nice stuff, seems more like an IPA.
