4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Batch Number 2008-1 (Purchased October 2008). Bottle #750 purchased in Savoy, Illinois. Pours cloudy yellow-gold color with a huge head that takes a long time to dissipate. Aroma of yeast, sweetness, and floral. Lots of carbonation that lasts quite a while. Spicy aftertaste that is slightly bitter. Great mouthfeel and very easy to drink. The alcohol is hidden very well. I have a few more bottles of this that are being "cellared" right now. This is the 4th bottle of this that I have consumed and everyone of them has been great! I can’t wait to try the 2009 batch.

It helps when you are a fan of this style of beer and getting into beers with brett at the same time.. Believe it or not I bought a bottle of this in Downtown Salt lake City at the Bayou!!
Smells of lovely fruit and spice with some spice on the nose. Pours A hazed blonde with some nice white head that was frothy!!! The Carbonation and Mouthfeel on this is maybe the best I have ever had on a beer. Fantastic balance and Crispness to it WOW!!! Brett, Sugar, Spice, earth, some hops and bot o honey.. These flavors really worked..
This is even more proof that this brewery is one of the best we have!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Big fluffy white head. Pours a cloudy golden color with some floating sediment. The aroma is citrus, resin, spice, and some dustiness. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly tart with grapfruity hops, belgian fruity esters, spice, and brett funk. The carbonation is lively and it finishes with lightly bitter hops. This with the tartness keeps it quite drinkable. Overall: crisp, delicious, refreshing, and complex.
