3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a golden orange color with a big pillowy white head. The aroma is slightly fruity with a touch of spice as well, lemon. Medium mouthfeel. Starts with a very Belgian yeast type of flavor with fruit, banana, and spice and then moves to a ever so slight barnyard note. Slight bitterness in the end. Overall, its decent but I am looking forward to this sitting for a while to develop.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with fizzy white head. Aroma of light funk and citrus. Flavor has some complexities such has farmhouse, citrus, antique, attic, earth, fruits, wheat malt, no real tartness in this brew though. Ligjt-medium mouth feel with very high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, enjoyable brew but not worth the price tag.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Copper colored, nice foamy off white head but disapates quickly to a still beer, and see through. The smell is funk, fruit, hay, lactic, pineapple, mango, and good. The taste is dry, funk, tropical fruits, hay, slight tartness, and interesting. Lively crisp body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
July 21, 2012 bottle shared by Brandon. Orange pour with some head that quickly faded. Aroma was funk, belgian yeast and spice. Fruity, belgian yeast, spice, some sour and a dry and maybe even bitter finish. Light to medium bodied and some carbonation. May get better with aging, but not sure I want to pay $15 to find out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has some really nice lemon scents and a little tart funkiness. Has a cloudy apple juice color, taste is a nice lemon up front with a finishing sour.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber orange with micro film atop.
Aroma: Flowers, grandma perfume, funk, baby powder.
Taste: Dry cracker like malt, mild brett fruitiness,a little metallic, funky, citrusy.. Finishes bretty and bitter with a slight tart twang.
Mouthfeel: High prickly carbonation. Medium bodied.
Overall: If this becomes a full time or even seasonal beer, it will go down as a classic. The product description is spot on, dry and complex. I’ve been reading discussions elsewhere on this beer, with some disappointment over lack of tartness. Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe the term Wild Ale and Russian River take folks mind to the land of sours. It’s not sour, it’s not a funk bomb, but all terminology and marketing aside, its a delicious beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: hazy golden-orange pour with a large white head, fading quickly, and lots of fizzy activity. Aroma is lightly tart with lemon, funky with some barnyard notes, and a touch of bubble gum mixed in. Flavor starts with a punch of lemon tartness with some grass, followed by a light sweetening of pineapple and bubble gum together with a spicy touch of clove, cardamon, pepper and some funky yeast. Palate is tart and sweet with spice throughout but rather light in mouthfeel for as much carbonation showing in the glass. This beer is tasty and goes down easily with lots of flavor. Not a trace of the 8.3abv listed. I will be back for more.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour, very frothy lasting head and nice light funky citrus aroma. Flavor is also lightly funky malt, white grapes, pears and a some very refreshing citrus on the finish. Definitely worth the price.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 17/20
Strong sour bretty funk on the nose, light cheese and persimmons. Clear amber, thick yellow head with little retention or glass adherence. Mouthfeel is flat and watery even for me (I dislike a lot of carbonation). No body.. Flavor is bretty and un-medicinal, the way I prefer it. Not at all sour, the aroma is quite misleading. Lemon zest present. Finishes with sweet cherries and cardamom. Great beer if not for the poor texture.
