4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Belgian funk and phenols with an American hopping character. Pours dark gold with a significant haze. The aroma is Brett Funk, spicy phenolics and citrusy hops, all in near equal balance (although the funk does dominate a bit). Flavor follows through from the aroma. The Brett gives this beer a pasty flavor, which predominates. Still, the malt, the hops, and even the phenols come through to balance things pretty well. This beer is a great balance of many differing characters, and it is done really well.
If you are not a fan of Belgian or wild brews, BEWARE THE FUNK! If you enjoy them, YOU WILL LOVE THIS BEER!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I believe this is a 2008 vintage, first year perhaps (rubber cork noted 0108) purchased with Mike C but enjoyed solo. No pop from the cork and no carbonation. Brown with slight haze. Malty sweetness aroma. No bite from carbonation, or lack there of. Mostly clean finish, minimal oxidation. I?m sure this saw better days as I didn?t treat this well. Still a nice find in my cellar.

draft that poured a medium orange color with white frothy head. nice aroma of Belgian yeast some darker fruits and apples. very slight alcohol on the end. the flavor was a full bodied mouth feel. alcohol mixed with the fruits especially the apple and the Belgian yeast. not overly strong but a solid flavor start to finish. another great sipper.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Btl 2013 pours light bronze color, small white head vanished quickly leaving no lace. Smells of fruity,funky,flowers and a hint of sweet honey. Tastes of dark fruits,raisin,plum,figs,lemon,sweet breadiness, yeast and honey. Medium body, a little under carbonated,smooth, soft mouthfeel and a slightly tart, yet tingly right on the tip of the tongue finish. This collaboration is outstanding! Very easy to drink beer. The alcohol is hidden by the complex flavors. The sweet malts are balanced perfectly by the hops and funkiness. I could drink this all day if I wasnít such a lightweight. Ha!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
a slightly tart BSA...not sure if that is by design or not. a little farmhouse on the palate as well, with some yeast and light funk, and dark fruits. Not bad, but overpriced.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle.
Very hazy. Dark orange colored. Small head that disappears quickly. The bottom of the bottle was murky as hell and tasted like yeast.
The aroma is more inviting than the appearance. Smells like apples. Very malty. A bit funky.
Slightest bit sour.. Sweet with a bitter finish. Yeasty finish.
Syrupy. Not much of the alcohol comes through, though itís only 8.5%. Lightly carbonated. The carbonation makes the finish creamy.

Draft. Copper/gold with thick off white head and lots of lacing. Fruity and floral with a small hint of horseblanket in the background. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz bottle, purchased awhile ago at Julioís. Damn itís a gusher... After the foamy calmed down enough to get about 7 oz in my glass I noticed the hazy Amber color. Aroma is caramel candy, light funk, dusty yeast, light dark fruit.
The flavor is mostly as the aroma with a chewy thick malty dark fruit and yeast texture. The funk is here very lightly underneath all the malt. No ABV or oxidation found. No clue on the Batch number but itís held up really well, except for losing 4 oz on the floor. And I should have open prior to now.... So much beer, so little time.
