3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Night of the Funk. Pours a pale gold. Aroma has notes of paprika, seaweed, clove and acetone, with a gentle tartness. Soup up front in the mouth with an ugly, buttery, oily finish. Looks like 136.10 Hz didnít do the trick (gimme a break with that, btw. Waste of time. If thatís what you feel you need to do to create a superior beer experience then you are doing it all wrong. Iím all for experimentation in brewing, but this pseudo-science BS should be saved for Tom Cruise and the church of Scientology).

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at CBC. Aroma of big fruity apricot and green grapes. Reminiscent of barrel aged upright beers. Sweaty over ripened pear Brett. Tasty. Fun to drink. Menu says 7.8% abv.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brew pub. 5 oz taster. Nose is funky oak and Brettanomyces, good amount of funk. Taste is mostly the same with a bit of musty hay. Mouthfeel has a mild Puckering affect. Medium in body with a slightly drying texture. Decent. Well worth a try if you enjoy Brett.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Night of the Funk 2009: Slightly hazy golden with a thick dense white head. Tannic buttery Chardonnay aroma- mild odd phenols are there as well giving off a plasticy note over a green raisin fruity undertone. Creamy body- warming. Some mild vanilla flavor mesh with a buttery white wine vinousness and sweet oak. Thereís an herbal note on the back. This is quite interesting, but I canít say I liked it through and through. (Perhaps itís because Iím sensitive to the diacetyl of the California Chardonnays).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Light citrus aromas. Moldy sour peach and nectarine notes with malty undercurrents. Tangy, but not overly tart. Interesting. This batch has an ABV of 7.8%. Average body and mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet and syrumpy nose...winey too! Golden and white head. The wine flavors are a bit too pronounced but nice.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
On tap at the Night of the Funk 2012. Old socks, manure, rotten grass, and acetaldehyde lead to hints of really poorly made mead. The only beer at the fest I couldnít choke down.

Sample at NotF. Pours a light cloudy yellow color with a foamy white head. Nose is lightly fruity with clove and banana esters. Palate is lightly fizzy and clean. Flavors of toasty malt notes and yeast with a light hint of clove.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
EBF V NOTB. Sort of a wit/tripel/strong ale hybrid it seemed to me. Banana, wheat, citrus, apricot, apple, probably more, no reason to distrust that pineapple and peach werenít there too, all nicely balanced, never gets overly sweet. My notes donít really specify what was in the nose and what was in the flavor, but I do know that after not being sure what to expect, I was very impressed by this brew. Maybe thereís something to all this meditation/vibration stuff they talk about.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at the brewery. Clear pour the color of light golden honey. No head and still in the glass. 3. Aroma is an amazing blend of bubblegum and balsamic vinegar. 8. The taste is bitter up front, followed by biscuit malt, and then a Belgian yeast sweetness leaps forward. Delicious. 9. Slippery in the mouth with a lingering biscuit taste. 4. As good as anything at Russian River. 18
