3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
1 pint can. Good drinking here. Earth and funk are prominent in this solid collaboration. Pours with a thin layer of starch white head, and bold, opaque, burnt orange. Aroma is of earth, barnyard, bread, caramel, and mild citrus. A good, hazy, funky nose. The palate is quite wet, decently carbonated, with prominent funk, as the other notes come off slightly muddled. Cheese, wood, bread, sour berry, pears, and more funk. Overall, I enjoyed. This is close to being great.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 ounce can into tulip glass, no canning date, but probably August 2012. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a good 1-2 finger fluffy off white head with decent retention, that reduces to a ring of lace. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart apple, pear, grape, apricot, grass, herbal, bread, earth, clove, honey, funk, and light yeast spiciness. Very nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of tart apple, pear, grape, bread, grass, earth, clove, toast, honey, banana, light funk, and yeast spiciness. Fair amount of earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruit, bread, toast, grass, clove, banana, earth, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of flavors; fair amount of tartness that showcases a good amount of sweetness complexity; zero cloying sweetness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian style wild ale. Nice flavor balance and complexity; and quite smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Appearance is a slightly darker red than expected. Aroma, taste and feel are all very light, great for warmer weather drinking. Light on the floral Belgian smells and not overpowering.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from trade with Umich03jm. Pours a clear copper color with a moderate head. Fairly light sour aroma with hints of bret. Taste is light sour and funk with a malt balance and with good body and mouthfeel. Makes me think of Orval. Interesting brew and probably worthy of aging with good results.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Croustillante, cuivrée en la versant et déjà l’arôme m’assailli, la couverte de cheval est bien humide. En bouche c’est riche, vivant et brillamment carbonaté, parfait. Les saveurs tourne autour du malt caramel tourmenté par le brett bruxellensis, pas très sûr, juste funky.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Churchkey. Slightly hazy orange pour with small bubbly head. Nose and flavor bring orange peel, sourdough, light cheesy funk, nectarine. Soft sour character but still quite tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can picked up at the brewpub in Grand Rapids, MI. Pours a clear, copper-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has a medium-high, lemony tartness with a good amount of yeast giving off a moderate Bretty funk. Fairly fruity with some more oranges and grapefruits as well as a bit of an earth and grass. Lightly sweetened, somewhat bready malt backing as well. Flavor is fruity and moderately tart up front with lemons, grapefruits, and oranges as well as a good amount of yeast. Nice Bretty funk in the middle with some earth and a somewhat bready malt backing. Finishes a bit sweet, but dry and moderately tart with a good amount of yeasty funk, a light grass, and a bunch of fruits. A hint of alcohol warmth before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a soft, somewhat lively, moderate carbonation. Overall, a unique, but really solid beer. A somewhat sweet sour, but a nice Bretty funk and good amount of tart fruits throughout. Big fan of the aroma on this one. Nice beer.

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour funk aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Courtesy of JPDurden24. 16oz can pours up with a clear copper body with gold edges that supports an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up earthy grapefruit peel, orange wedges, mild tartness and a faint funkiness in the background. The taste is similar with smooth sweaty vinegar, mild tartness, a bit more vinegar to midway and then a mix of grapefruit and lime notes into the finish. Tasty stuff.
