Bottle shared with Dickinsonbeer: (Last bottle at Spuyten) Pours a hazy golden with a nice dense white head. The aroma is oaky, slightly tannic, some soft bourbon/vanilla, peppery phenolics and underlying dry bread crust notes. Fluffy fee with a sweet and spicy flavor that dries out. Starts with a vanilla note from the bourbon at the fore- this initial sweetness is rounded with a soft doughy malt note and later peppery oak and subtle alcohol. Pretty nice, though a touch solventy. I have a theory that some of these bottles were infected, or just poorly conditioned based on some of the previous ratings.

Thanks to Garrett Oliver for bringing these to St. Stephen’s Green in Philly during a recent beer dinner. Pours a hazy dark golden orange with lighter golden burnt orange hues when held to a light source and a two finger frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of lacing are left behind. Slightly funky, dry earthy brett aroma with lots of estery Belgian yeast producing some nice crisp golden fruit notes. Hints of slight barnyard funk, apple, cherry, strawberry and cream, pear and subtle peppery spice. Smells like a slightly bretty funky tripel with a nice bit of bready yeast and estery fruit notes. Dry earthy, funky medium body with a nice amount of tartness up front and a bretty funk dryness thatlingers throughout over a estery Belgian yeast body with crisp fruit notes into a subtle dry finish with slight alcohol warmth. Lots of estery fruit notes and spicy peppery notes. Alcohol presence is noticeable but not too much so, making this very drinkable. The brett character is prominent enough to add a delicious earthy funkiness but it’s not too sour, acidic or overpowering and you can still taste the flavors of the original beer.

Light brett aroma with a bit of orangey citrus. Hazy gold color. Sweet, like a Belgian gold with a citrusy quality but not sour; woody with a brett/Belgian finish. Notes: Pints for Prostates/Denver Rare Beer Tasting at Wynkoop Brewing Co, 2009 Great American Beer Fest

lovely sour smell. not too pungent. bright alcohol taste. spices really pack a wallop. a lot of competing flavors that still work well together.

Bottle sample poured by Garrett Oliver at The Denver Rare Beer Tasting event during GABF week on 9/25/09. pours a hazy yellow with a white head... wonderful sour funky nose... light citrus from the nose through the body... big round presence over the tongue... some more barnyard flavors float throughout while the bourbon barrel takes a back seat...

Bottle. Cloudy golden color with a small head. Aroma has some faint spice with a little wood and brett and a hint of rubbing alcohol. Flavor is sweet, malty, a little smooth bourbon and finishes very dry. Not bad overall.
