3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, Russian River brewpub, Santa Rosa, CA, 13/08/12. Mild, papery wheat and lemon, streaks of depth and pepperiness, a little dankness. Level-headed yellow gold, lightly misted. Orange rind, pepper, parsley-like herb aroma. Good, but positively tame compared to some of the other treasures on the table.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy bright golden orange color with 2 fingers of eggshell colored, effervescent foam. Fantastic aroma of oranges and caramel with some yeasty dank notes. The carbonation is lively, carrying some juicy, citrus hops atop medium sweet caramel flavor with some toasty bread crust to finish. It’s extremely refreshing, with the yeast emphasizing some of the citrusy aspects and then just a touch of dryness to close it.

750, pours hazy brass with foamy white head, tart and lightly estery /phenolic aroma, intriguing, light but assertive malt presence, mildly funky, heavy cabonation, decent, time will be good to this beer (although it will be a bottle bomb by then)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great sour aroma, but sadly the taste doesn’t match. Weak and watery taste. Some wild yeast, some sour lemon, and a bit of cherry. A gift from Nick.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. aroma was lots and lots of brett, light wheat notes, lemon peel, and some other light spices. Flavor was a tad sweet for what I was expecting, light alcohol nnotes, some spice, and good amount of brett. Reminded me of a bretted triple.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25.4 oz. Bottle. Fresh. Lots of sediment, Brett, in bottom of bottle. Vinous, breadiness scent, Brett underneath, a little weak in strength. Bubbly white head to a ring over a copper high carbonated pour. Light body, crisp, with a fizzy finish - great! Delicate flavor, bright fruit (lemon), vinous, bread, Brett, peppery spices. A little expensive, but I’m going to age a bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle is nice and slightly hazy orange with nice fluffy and streaming carbonation, nice white head. Aroma has nice notes of dusty cobwebs, lemon, biscuit, bread, some nice lactic, hints of white grape, pear, and peach, touch of earthy and dusty basement notes again. Taste is a nice mix of pear, peach, some white grape, grass, slight spice, touch of bready and yeasty malts, hints of earthy and spicy notes, some lemon and biscuity notes, finishing fairly sweet but some slight funk comes through. Definitely lacking in lactic from the aroma, but really a nicely done brett beer.
