4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours brassy gold, with a fluffy persistant head that leaves lacing all the way down the glass.
Aromas of citrus and brett funk dominate, with hints of oak, caramelly sweetness, and hops peeking through as it warms.
Tart, effervescent mouthfeel leaves a bit of puckering green apple quality in the corners of the mouth, almost overpowering the malt and hops from the Fred component, but not quite. Finishes surprisingly malty and bitter given the sour into.
This is a simply phenomenal blend, and the first beer in this series that has really impressed me. Hopefully I can snag a few more for the cellar before too many people catch on.

Kind of a typical Flemish red/brown. This one was a little extra foamy in head & more lace. Flavor was a bit more bitter in finish too.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The funky aroma was musty dry and sour. The dry crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering fruity aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of sour mildly vinous citrus floral dough and fruity. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

On tap at Novare Res in Portland, Me which is slightly ironic I guess u guize. Pours a nice ruby hued head, cream hued foam head. Lightly tart and acidic, nice pitted fruit sweetness underneath. I can’t believe I have to be at the airport at 5 am tomorrow gonna suck. Sourness lingers on the palate. Medium to light bodhi.

Pours a hazy golden-copper from a bottle. Aroma of lemon, green apple, like a french pastry. Flavor does add notes of apricot, apricot jam in particular, maybe some quince. A little barnyard funkiness and a hint of pine. Good sourness. Very good beer.
