Dark gold, excellent head. Some spices in the flavor and the brett is not overdone (thank goodness!). They’ve achieved a nice balance of brett/hops/malt with this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is orange and mostly clear, showing only a mild haze. Atop the beer rests a thin white head. The aroma offers apples, malt, brettanomyces, light spice. The flavor is ok. A bit malty, with some well water character. Brett is there, but this beer seems to play it safe. A tiny bit of tangy citrus with an apple juice finish. Maybe this will improve with age, but even so, this is a step (or more) behind many other notables in this genre.

Picked up at SL... Golden blonde/orange-ish color. Decent head. Nose of of a slight tartness and spices. Taste follows the nose. Slight tartness with a spicyness to it. Lite fruits, grassy and earthy/dirt taste. Dry, light and refreshing. Nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden pour with a coarse white head. Aroma of hay, old dough, lemons, and light spice. Obviously lots of Brett. Flavor presents more of a malt than than I expected, sweet grains, lemons, dough and spice. Solid carbonation, crisp and a drying finish. Not bad, lacking some complexity.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep orange with active carbonation and white head that explodes, then dissipates. Dried citrus, light spice, and a little leather. Flavor is dried orange/apricot/pear, light spice, and citrus. Lightly sour lemon. Nice and dry with a small amount of citrus sour and leather lingering. Quite enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy gold with a dissipating white head and aroma of yeast, fruit, and spices. Taste is complex and sweet, of yeast, fruits, spices, citrus, and grass with a tart, sour finish. Nice wild ale and a collaboration that lived up to the billing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 750 m. Pours hazy golden with tiny white head, quickly diminishing. Aroma: wine, slight brett (little disapointment here), alcohol, fruits, and Belgian yeast. Taste: slight winey acidity. Brett is very not that much present. Still a good beer nevertheless. Malty sweetness, quite pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Clear golden with no head and no lacing. Aroma of malt, belgian yeast, wine, fruits and slight brettanomyces. Taste is winey with malt, fruits and slight brett. Mouthfeel is winey like. A bit deceiving but I think we drank it too young, the brett wasn’t probably didn’t have enough time to develop.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Copper colored pour with a small white head that quickly fizzes away to zero. Aroma was bold with funky notes of brett, sour grapes, wet dog and a bit of sweaty horse. The flavor really does not live up to the foreshadowing promised by the nose, there are some lemons, soured apricots and sour grapes. The palate is silky smooth with prickly carbonation. The finish is medium in duration and dry with lingering sour malts . Overall: I sure hope this improves with time.
