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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep yellow, high frothy head going to nothing. Lemony nose, a bit of barnyard and grass, but simple. Sweet lemon flavor, a touch of cream, a little barnyard, but basically very simple and needs to sit a while to get the brett character going. Thin and light. Very disappointing for the price.

Cloudy golden orange in color... Sour citrus aroma... Flavor is slightly sour, mild citrus and malty notes, with hints of pepper and bread... Pretty solid stuff

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from premier gourmet. Pours orange amber hue, small head with little retention. Lots of bubbling carbonation. Nose is of pepper and yeast. Taste has pepper and cracker malt upfront, a nice light tartness and lemon zest on the finish. Medium bodied. I need to go back and find a few more (6) bottles to age.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 750 ml corked and caged bottle. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a medium cream-colored head that collapses into a skiff after a few minutes. Aroma is refreshingly fruity, wild--I get huckleberries. Taste is sweet, tart and dry; finishes with an umami presence. It’s a bit too highly carbonated right now, IMO. I have another bottle and will re-rate it in a year or two and see what changes--I’m betting a lot, and for the better.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. Pours gold with a small, bubbly, white head. The aroma is green apples, granite, lemon peels, and grass. The flavor is nicely sweet, with a mild and very nice sourness. The palate is light to medium, sticky and hard. Overall, this is a pleasant and drinkable beer, but not very complex or interesting.
