4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2012 Rerate: Can 2/4. I’ve upped my rating! I’ve never smelled or tasted a more "rotten/horse blanket" bretta brew! Can says that it contains live yeast, and will improve for 5 years. I believe it!
Red amber color. Average head. Aroma and taste were funky bretta and sour. Medium body. $19.99/4 16oz. cans.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

16 oz can and draft. One of the best bretts i’ve ever had. Very excited to see how this develops in the can. Hope Vivant does this one again.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2012 I bought 8 of these and plan to save 5 of them. I’ll drink one a year for the next five years to see just how it ages. As of now I like it. I don’t think I can describe it better than it already has been here. Just to let everyone know, they still have a lot of this at Tiffany’s Wine and Spirit Shoppe in Kalamazoo. Get it while it lasts. Reminds me of a good aged cheese. Lots of character and tart. Can’t wait to see how it ages.

Can pour into goblet. Reddish amber/gold; small, brief head. Tart, fruity, slightly sour. Very nice tasting now, but I am guessing it will taste more complex with age. I better put some away.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a golden amber color with a rapidly dissipating head. Aroma is very fruity, with pineapple, strawberry, and fruit punch. Flavors are pleasantly sweet and sour, with more pineapple and strawberry, with the hops adding some bitterness. No alcohol presence really, but I definitely started feeling it quickly due to the easy-drinking nature of this beer. Pretty awesome, and kinda sad that we won’t be able to get it all the time!

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.
