3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The ale really varies from release to release. Currently, drinking release #4 (about a 3.5) which is funky, fermented tropical fruit, and slightly astringent on the palate. Release #6 is far better I’d say easily over a 4.0 rating. The #6 is much more tart and more along the lines of a sour (a less aggressive petrus). Great aroma a little spicy with a very tart sour fruit taste and finish. I’m not sure about the other releases, but I’d recommend finding the #6.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve never had a more brett forward ale! The aroma and taste stinks, just like us brett lovers expect. Make this in 16 oz. cans, year around, and it would never leave my frig!

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
4/III/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - release#4, SLC#1367 whatever that may mean (2014-243) Thanks to ajax25g for sharing the bottle!
Clear dark yellow beer, small big bubbled head, actually just some big bubbles floating on top, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very dirty, urine, infected stuff, sourish, overripe to rotten fruits. It doesn’t just smell weird, like the first time I had geuze, but it smells really horrible actually. MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish, bit lemony, fruity, bit sugary even, which is weird, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: lemon rind, bit nasty, bitter hops, lemony, sour touch. Maybe I’m spoiled because of all the good lambics we have here in Belgium, but hey, if you’re stealing our bugs, then don’t be surprised if we compare them to our own beers as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Garage 39. Lactic, slightly acidic nose, melon, lemon, yogurt. Clear golden color. Lovely lemon and horse blanket flavor, very clean but a bit too sweet. Only lightly sour, crisp and tasty. Good. Would probably be better if ratcheted down a couple degrees.
