4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent gold with a creamy/foamy white head. Moderate brett aroma. Med body or better. Flavor is brett, sweatsox, light stone fruit. Some tropical fruit. Could be citrus, but the brett makes that hard to discern. Finishes towards very dry, but there’s still a bit of sweet fruit. Malt? There’s malt here? Think I can get some oak - that astringency comes from somewhere. Do we need malt to carry hop, if the yeast is brett? Inquiring minds want to know! This is elegant, tasty ale.

Bottle, thanks to Bruce at the Tuesday Horal Chugging Tasting. It pours cloudy pale golden orange with a medium white head. The nose soft, fruity, orange, apricot, peach, bruised banana, candy, barnyard, brett and cobwebs. The taste is crisp, tart orange, apricot, peach, zesty lemon, straw, earthy, brett, cobwebs, mild acidity, floral and decent bitterness with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. A bit too sweet on the nose, but pretty delicious.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a big rocky white head. Aroma is citrus and earthy funk. Taste follows suit but the yeast has a very rubbery character. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. On the whole not bad but I think the Brett strain these guys use is not my cup of tea.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy gold pour with a 3 finger, fluffy off white head. Aroma is big on citrus, tropical fruit and cat box hops, sweaty bretty funk, green wood tartness, and some toasty wood notes. Flavor is full of sweaty brett funk up front, some fallen leaves earthy funk, sweaty dishwater, light, sort of sweet wood notes, lots of citrus and some tropical fruit and cat box hoppy notes, but not nearly as much as the aroma indicates. Light to medium body, neutral to dry entry, off dry finish and light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation. Really good stuff overall, after the first couple of sips the sweaty/dishwater notes die down and it is actually quite enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big,big Brett funk here. It is all I get in the nose. Same with the taste. Slightly sour with citric notes. Farmyard all the way. The hops are pretty much gone. Maybe I got an old bottle. If it was called just a farmhouse Brett beer I would give it higher but the lack of bitterness is a minus.
