3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed on tap in sampler form at the Crooked Stave Taproom in Denver, CO. Appearance is a cloudy bright gold with a prominent frothy white head. Aroma is 'earthy' like herbs and fertilizer, not the greatest smell but its faint enough and I can appreciate it. Taste is very strange, like raw hops with sour grape notes, I can appreciate its complexity but I'm not into it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 mL bottle, brough by Zach. Pours a cloudy yellow color, with a medium, bubbly, white head. The nose is lemon peels, yeast and white bread, musty hay and light barnyard funk, and a bit of rosemary. Dry flavor, with a lightly tart finish. Light to medium body, dry, chalky, and acidic. This is a mellow and subtle saison, with a good, easy brett funk that dries it out pretty nicely.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12.7 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-25-16. Labeled “July 2015,” presumably a “bottled in” month. Initially clear (but hazy in later pours), bright, borderline brilliant, almost orange-ish gold. Final pour has an apricot nectar-like appearance from the yeast. Moderate amount of short-lasting, beige head. Sparkling, fast-rising bubbles. Looks good and appetizing. Tangy, citric aroma. The smell definitely is of Brett, but it’s decidedly young Brett. Orange, tangerine, and grapefruit scents. Apple juice. Highly appetizing smell. Tart, citric, acidic taste. Fresh lemons. Apple cider vinegar. Olive brine. Minerals. Toothpaste with baking soda. Quite tart in fact, perhaps slightly excessively so. Some of that Band-Aid like bitter, medicinal, chemical quality that often comes with Brett, but not much and not in a bad way. A lot going on in the flavor. Pleasant, milky, chalky, dry aftertaste. Medium body, heavier than I expected given the low ABV. Some froth in the palate. Easy to drink and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle (Beerfox, Riga)
Lovely fruity aroma, plenty of esters, but light. Hazy straw, small brief head. Very light palate, gentle acidity. Almost a bit watery. Gentle bready malts, bretty herbal dryness, but some other wild yeast causing the acidity. A bit boring, to be honest. Might be a mood thing, but this is not the beer for me right now.
