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.

Tight white head that lasts, skimpy lace. Clear, blonde color, tiny bubbles rising. Nose is a touch tart, woody, earthy and spicy. Body is light with nice carbo level. Dry malts, dusty and woody, love wood, hint astringent, light blanket and must, strawberry. Dry finish is tangy with a little fruit. Decent stuff. Bottle from beastiefan, thanks Eugene!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015 bottle, clear amber beer, white head faded. Aroma malt, kombucha, citrus, pineapple. Taste is black pepper, lychee, oak, kombucha, pears, salt, grapefruit, resin. Palate is light, carbonation moderate. Finish is tannic oak and resin, and is out of balance with the rest of the beer. If this had just a bit less oak it would be outrageous.

375mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Nose is very woody, with lots of oak, bretty funk, and hay. Flavour is quite funky, with considerable bretty notes, wood and oak -- not getting any of the fruit. Super dry, funky and a little bready. Wonderfully complex and highly drinkable. Excellent.

12.7 oz bottle- Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is very brett forward, while i was pouring the glass i got the aromas of funky wet basement, mildly tart, fruity, very appealing. The taste is citrusy, light tartness, brett, hops are very noticeable, imparting a dry finish. Wonderful beer, even better than expected.

Bottle from the Beer Authority.
Very glad to get to try this one. Black Raven continues to impress. Beautiful glowing gold pour (I wish you could see the sunlight streaming through right now) with a modest white head. Aroma of dry dusty fields, flavors a very well integrated blend of leathery brett with satsuma orange peel, quite dry, not all that complex but a beautiful venue for the brett. Zero sign (beyond the mild buzz from blasting through a bottle on an empty stomach) that this beer is above 6%. Lovely beer. I could drink huge volumes of this.
