3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Brian at the house. Snifters. Pours a light colored golden orange with a lively head. Some lacing in the snifters. The aroma is a combination of light fruits, slight lemon citrus, hint of brett and Belgium yeasts, and pears. The taste is fruity up front with a little sweetness and then transitions into the brett and tartness on the back end. The Well balanced. It didn’t blow my socks off....but glad I held onto it for t few years. Tasty.

Pours a rich gold with light head it has a spicy aroma with a slight cherry hint. It has a very spicy favor upfront of coriander with subtle fruity notes. It is very intriguing and keeps drawing you back for another sip. And another sip. And another. And before you know it there is no more and you are sad.

750mL corked bottle. No indication of how old it is other than a code 2046611:40 on the bottle. It has been in my cellar for a number of years - at least 3
LOUD uncorking, slightly violent, didn’t gush though.
Pours a very lively orange-straw body. Big foam flairs up before dissipating down to a firm cap.
Aroma is quite fruity - grapefruit, white grape, pear, peach, apricot, some hard cheesy & leesy funk in there, sherbert, slight phenolic spice.
Carbonation is high but quite fine, textually almost somewhere between a Belgian strong & Saison - dry, chalky, slightly tart, yet retains richness & creaminess to it.
Rather enjoyable combination of flavours on the body; husky, lightly toasted cereals, ripe pears & apricot, citrus rind, buttery/cheesy character, green herbal (almost coriander-like) notes, peppery spice. Finishes dry, some vinous minerality to it, lingers, acidity not as pronounced as expected - more akin to a Saison than Lambic.
Truly unique, and certainly fair well with a number of years under its belt. Glad for the opportunity!

let this one sit for a while and it got very bretty. People were says when it was released that it wasnt bretty enough and it was great now. Highly recommend opening these now. Great brett finish, high carb.

750ml bottle shared by crew at GTMW 2014 ticket line. Not impressive. Captures most of the negative traits of poorly made US sour. Light grainy infection. Low carbonation. Between SN and RR you’d think they’d nail this. In no way commanding a high price tag. Meh.

Big corked bottle. Hazy orange/gold with quickly disappearing head but very lively. Very funky nose. Earthy, funky tart dry and horse blanket. Authentic and well crafted. I’d expect nothing less. If I found this in a small Belgian brewery, I’d be happy with the find.

Earthy, tart aroma. Pretty champagne-like. A little dusty... Maybe subtle cleaning product? High carbonation. Sweet malt, with earthy and tart flavors. Pepper spiciness. Substantial bitter aftertaste.
