3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased at a place that sells liquor in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after a long work week while watching football. Appearance is a slightly cloudy gold with almost no head. Aroma can be described as light floral, with a hint of sourness and Brettanomyces yeast, I also had thai food for dinner and it kinda smells like that. Taste is very carbonated, light sour / stinky cheese, goes down dry. For a sour ale there are definitely better options and Iím a bit disappointed in this one, but feel that this is a good starter beer for introducing wild/sour ales to the masses.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber Bottle from HEB... The aroma is very floral and kinda skunky. Also a little sweet. The appearance is a hazy gold with a nice creamy head. The taste is of fresh flowers, but also a little sour and skunk. The after taste is of a sweet floral, akin to honeysuckle a bit. The palate is light and very nicely carbonated. Overall, I found this to be a very refreshing beer. Too expensive for what it actually tastes like, but would be interested in trying this one with some age on it.

Sometimes these collaborations blow you away and sometimes they donít. I must say I was disappointed overall with this. Some funkiness in the aroma but not much, a sourness to it that is incredibly mellow. Pretty good but quite prohibitive at fifteen a bottle.

Bottle, pours a light brown, aroma is kind of grainy, the flavour is a bit tart and the theres a grainy mouth feel. This one will definitly do well with some age, I will see how this one does in a year or two, nice offering.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
THOUGHTS: Very nice. Quite light, refreshing and easy to drink for a Bretted beer. I need to buy another bottle or two to age. This could get very interesting over time, especially since it didnít have any overpowering flavors to hid the Brett development. The first beer in a while that made me take prolific notes.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a fairly-clear-for-being-bottle-conditioned, light to medium orangey amber that could be described as the color of a polished copper kettle. It also had some of the most beautiful carbonation Iíve ever seen using a non laser-etched glass. It also had an average to large, frothy, off-white head that mostly diminished and left virtually no lacing. On the second pour it was much more cloudy. The aroma had light notes of something like honey; light to moderate grassy hops; moderate to heavy funky and earthy yeast; light leather yeast; slightly spicy yeast; green raisins; MacIntosh and Granny Smith apples; pear; white wine; light fruits; champagne; and light lemons. The initial flavor was lightly sweet sour and acidic and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was light to moderately sweet and acidic, and moderately sour and bitter with a duration that was average when it came to flavor, but long when it came to dryness. There was something sort of like hone, tons of yeast, light tart fruit like MacIntosh or Granny Smith apples, pears and white grapes; slight lemon, earthy yeast, slightly funky yeast, spicy and fruity yeast, champagne, white wine, grassy hops, almost leathery yeast; and more lemon toward the end. The light to medium body had nearly abrasive dryness at times and surprisingly soft carbonation for all the visual carbonation and yet is was still a bit tingly and had a dry, slightly astringent and ever so slightly alcoholic finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color of cider in the glass with an initially huge white head due to the aggressive carbonation. Aroma is light sour with green apple, spice, dry brett and light tart as well. Taste is heavy dry brett up front followed by apple and lemon with some tart notes and graininess into the finish. The brett imparts and almost champagne like dryness and flavor. Clean, dry mouthfeel. I like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased at Premier Gourmet in Niagara Falls New York. Pours a crystal copper and gold colour with a massive bubbly white head that disappears right away. If you look at the glass from the top down, it bubbles like a volcano. Nose is really

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an effervescent hazed golden with an orange hue; quite lively like a champagne with similar white bubbles for head. Dry, lightly musty aroma with notes of clementine/peel. A dry light bodied beer, bubbly with clementine-orange flavors as well as the peel and a bit of funk edge; certain characters are reminiscent to me of Polar Orange Dry soda and Orval.
