Pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly musty hay and with some fruitiness. Flavor is almost as light as a saison with a little more body. Thereís some lightly tart yeast flavors, mild spice and a little lemon in the finish. Very complex while retaining a light, refreshing body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12/4/2012. Pours golden amber, light haze, fizzy white head dies down pretty quickly, leaving small ring of lacing, very bubbly. Aroma is mild tropical fruit, pear, faint apple, toasted straw malts, light dusty brett. Flavor is bisuit malts, Belgian yeast, tripel-like spiciness, earthy, light white fruits, mild tartness and touch of barnyard beginning to show. Crisp, dry body, highly carbonated. Nice, can see this start to develop a bit more since the initial release. Must be patient with my last bottle.

Mild..just a smidge of Brett on the nose. Pale YELLOW. Very light...refreshing and floral. Hardly any Brett or funk...was is there to begin with? Nice easy drinker but nothing special. Glad I waited for the price to drop.

750mL bottle, $16.99ish at Olive Tree Market in OB a few months back when this came out (August?). Clear medium amber with a one finger fizzy white head, big bubbles, fading to a tiny ring rather quickly. Fruity leathery pineapple pear nose, light dust with some pale malts. The flavor continues with the pineapple pear, the leather fading a good deal. Some nice spicy white pepper yeast notes come through, minimal sweetness right before the finish, which is bone dry. Bitterness peaked at a 2ish, some alcohol present. Moderate prickly carbonation with a medium body. Quite solid, though didnít blow my mind , but Iím glad I managed a $10 bottle at OB Quik Stop during one of the sales (for the cellar!).

Taste not profound. No hops, Bret is slight. Overall a nice light refreshing taste to enjoy on a hot day. Hint of sourness. Would expect more from these two breweries.

Pours a slightly cloudy medium straw, with a white head.
Funky, spicy aroma, malt, hay, citrus, apples, wheat.
Dry, medium body, low to medium bitterness, lively CO2.
Funky, spicy taste, malt, citrus, barnyard, Brett, quite acidic.
Very nice, but it seems to lack a bit in complexity. (2012-11-22)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. It pours hazy golden-orange pour with a large white head, fading quickly, and lots of fizzy activity. Aroma is lightly tart with lemon, funky with some barnyard notes, and a touch of bubble gum mixed in. Flavor starts with a punch of lemon tartness with some grass, followed by a light sweetening of pineapple and bubble gum together with a spicy touch of clove, cardamon, pepper and some funky yeast. Palate is tart and sweet with spice throughout but rather light in mouthfeel for as much carbonation showing in the glass. This beer is tasty and goes down easily with lots of flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Binnys. Pours a hazy gold with a big creamy head that persists. Nose shows lots of cherry notes, lemon skin, pineapple, pilsner malt and perhaps apple candy. Faint plastic in the background? Lively and fruity overall. On tasting, subtle tartness in the front with a bitterness that sticks with you. Some grapes alcohol undertones and more of the cherry and apple candy notes. Good malt sweetness that finishes quite dry. Pretty cool beer and interested to see how it develops in time.
