4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I assume this is 2013 version, but not 100% certain.
Pours a light lemon ale wit a interesting pattern of white sheet atop - takes on a cheetah look with near concentric circles of break in the foam. Smells of manure, funk, soil, clay, hay, and some paper. Flavor is lemon, soil, tart, some of that minneola is coming through, some wit yeast and some light wheat character. I’m refreshingly surprised with the flavor here. Very light bodied with light prickly carb and an off dry finish. Fucking interesting beer. I know Brett isn’t supposed to form much acidity, and maybe it’s from the fruit, but damn this is refreshingly tart. A really excellent beer I was hoping would be only moderately tasty for the sake of my billfold. Great beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at the goodbye jcwatts rating adventure. Poured a not so good looking milky yellow body with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma was soapy, with some citrus notes, green olives from the brett. Tight bubbly carbonation over a medium mouthfeel and a fizzyness overall round up the palate. Flavor is probably the best part about this one, nice brett funk, oak, dry breads, toast, lemons, band aid and medicine. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7oz bottle, thanks to adnielson. Mostly clear golden color. Hazy with the last bit in the glass. Thin white head. Small ridges and ropes of lace. Nice, citrusy fruity sort of limey aroma. Lightly spicy, very bright overall. Medium body. Very bright, light, crisp carbonation. Lightly sticky in the finish. Moderate tart taste, pretty zesty. Moderate sweet taste. Very solid bretty belgian witbier. Very light, bright, and drinkable. Bretty funky citrus works very well with the belgian wit flavor profile. Still though, the bretty character makes this an entirely different type of beer than the typical awesome belgian witbier. Very good, but in a different way than the best examples are (which are awesome -- without brett). Orange, spicy citrus finish.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with a small off-white creamy head that laces well. Aroma is, well, odd. I smell some Brett, but its kind of bathroomy rather than barnyardy, and some fruit and wheat as well. Flavor is a DEFINITE improvement, with citrus, Brett (back in a good way), wheat, more citrus. Initial sweetness, drying out on the finish. Minimal bitterness and not much in the way of extraneous spices either, which makes me happy. Medium body, bubbly carbonation. A nice beer once you get past the aroma.
