3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, gifted by a kind Midwesterner. The pour’s clear medium amber with a discreet off-white head that settles into a fine film. Plenty of carbonation. The nose is bright, aggressive brett, plenty of musty white grape. Tart sweetness. Plum concentrate. The taste is somewhat medicinal woodland fruit. Plenty of young plum and peach. Soft brett and barnyard. Fine must. Soft finish. Sweet, syrupy body. Light, easy-drinking. I wouldn’t guess the ABV was so weighty. Overall, fairly decent. This looks like it has room to develop. There’s plenty of structure, just not a whole lot of flavor...

16oz can via trade, clear dark orange/amber color hardly any head. Aroma of funk, horse blanket, lemon and vinegar. Medium body that finishes very dry, average carbonation. Flavor of dry bread, lemons, vinegar, barnyard, funk. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can, thanks to oakagedgravy, thanks Michael! Pours a light orange, deep yellow with big white head. Aroma is very pronounced brett, funk, slight sour green apple peal. Taste is green apple, slight funky sock and some toffee. Overall, not bad for just being a brett "sour" but because there were no bugs, it seems, the sourness was not there and just left a mild brett beer that was not off putting but didn’t stand out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 16 oz can to pint. Looks solid; a transparent orange with white lacing. Smells and tastes doughy, yeasty, and spicy with mild brett notes. Average on the palate. Not bad, but should probably be aged for a year or two.

Thanks for the tick, Adam. Orange pour with a white head. Tart fruit and sweet malt on the nose. A bit of peach, toffee, green apple, and perhaps some cherry. A little bit of metal and booze, too. Interesting flavor. Lightly metallic and boozy, some tart fruit, and sweet malt. Notes of green apple, lemon zest, peach, and cherry. Sweet bread and toffee, and a little bit of yeast.

Not a fan of this one. This beer may be past it’s prime, but for a Brett beer, this is not that sour. Lacks the sweet, tart sourness you would expect and instead has a staleness to it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can from Manny57. Thanks. Pours a translucent copper color with a small off-white head that quickly vanishes. The aroma is pungent with Belgian style yeasts, sweetened grains, tart fruits and some funky brett. The flavor features sour green apples(a few other sour fruits are present but I can’t pick them out individually), some bitter nuts, sweetened grains and earthy hops. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: A sour in a can--I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Medium to dark, slightly hazy orange body, thin/medium off-white head. Sour nose, wispy and thin with tart fruits and nuts. Thin body with sugars, some tart (but not puckering) indistinct fruits, toast, spice, and warming alcohol in the finish; sharp. Had some champagne/sparkling grape juice qualities, neither very sweet nor very sour. Tastes like a winter beer. Warming.
