3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden orange color. Had a VERY fizzy head that disappered very quickly. Aroma is a lot of tropical fruits, pineapple, rotten banana, some caramel, floral perfumy, banana. Hmm...Taste is slightly tart, alot of banana, rotten fruits, sweet, strange..not at all what I excpected. To me this is not too good to be honest. Shame coming from such great brewers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pourís a hazy gold color with a large white head that quickly settles. The nose is light pineapple, some soap, marshmallow and wild yeast. Light marshmallow, dank basement. The taste is more pineapple fruit hops, some apple, light soapy finish. Plenty of mineral. Earthy barnyard, hints of wild funk. Medium body, heavy carbonation. Overall, decent. Nice, fruity hop body. The brett is only mildly present. Slightly heavy carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about an inch and a half white head that fizzled away quickly. Pretty much no lacing at all. Aroma is nice, it smells like pears, apricots, lemon peel, peppery spice, brett, and some hay. The brew tastes similar to the aroma, like apricots, hay, bready malt, funk, and some light banana and tropical fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium and a bit slick, but with very high carbonation. The high carbonation doesnít help the drinkability of this brew for me. Overall I think this is a solid brew and itís certainly worth trying, but I would have to think before spending $14.99 on this again. Hopefully the next time I try this Iíll get a bottle thatís less carbonated than this one was.

From a 22 oz bottle shared with friends. Pours a clear gold with a quickly disappearing white head. Funky bread aroma aroma. Sweet golden raisins with a champagne mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy golden straw color, with a large frothy white head. Biscuity malt, tart lemon zest, green apple, nice yeast reminiscent of russian river, light funk, and a bit white peppery and floral. Quite enjoyable, not a full blown sour. Should age well, but unfortunately I do not have additional bottles.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. Slightly hazy orange pour, thin head fades to nothing. Lovely complex nose, definite green pepper, big bretty vanilla spice, apple skins, light Belgian yeasty notes. Beautiful soft sweetness, big brett again, lovely biscuity malt, lightly floral bitter finish, hint of warm booze, and a rounded champagne-like mouthfeel. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle: pours an effervescent dark golden with a large froth of white head. Has a fresh biscuity malty nose with some lemon zest and light horse blanket funk. Starts with good fullness and lively carbonation with mild pale malty sweetness and light tart balance with a good amount of dry funk and floral hops before a bittersweet grassy finish. Very true to style and should age well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Yellowish-orange pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of light Belgian yeast, orange peel, and faint spices. The flavor is pleasantly tart but certainly nothing that would put this into the sour beer category. The light tartness is met with some bitterness from the hops and yeast. The high carbonation acts like champagne bubbles barely allowing any lingering flavor to remain on the palate. This is a very well done Belgian-style ale.
