3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from waltersrj. Thanks Ryan! Nose isn't as robust as the flavor, which is Chardonnay and oak barrel, funk/tart/sour tinge, a lagerish piece and some faint apple notes. It's definitely got plenty of carbonation, but I found it more similar to a sparkling wine or champagne... So, sorta glamorous in some sense. Anyway, very good beer. I do agree they could refine it a bit on re-release.

Bottle from FalconA. Thanks!
A: Cork comes out with a substantial pop. The pour yields a huge, huge, huge white foaming head. Golden color. Looks pretty nice. PIty itís somewhat overcarbed.
N: Holy cheddar cheese. This is crazy funky from ten feet away. Some oak, light apricot, and lemon zest fill in the other flavors, but really this about cutting the cheese. Brettanomyces are really chewing this one up.
T: Very, very funky. More of the cheese and a bit of diacetyl. Thereís a touch of sourness and bitterness, but this is mostly funk. Canít really say itís good, but it is uh, interesting.
M: Somewhat oily, partly dry, and not great.
O: Pretty substandard for the style. I donít know that aging this is going to help, either, because itís already growing overly funky in disproportion to the underlying beer. I hope they re-release it and dial it in.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured at Bottleworks. Pale clear yellowish amber with substantial head. Aroma of green apples, some grape and brett. Bitter finish to the taste, not at all sour, a little funk, vaguely harsh. Medium/light body, lively carbonation, rather dry. Overall: Iíd like to try this again. Didnít really leave a big impression on me.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Way over-carbonated, thankfully it didn't gush. Decadent lactic aroma billows from my glass, laced with white grapes and saison yeast. Unfortunately, that's where the fun ends. Entirely plain and underwhelming on the palate: tastes like malted grain and literally nothing else. A big disappointment considering how nice the aroma is.

Smells very sour but the taste doesn't measure up. Enjoyable but probably needs to age longer

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Poured pale, orange with a lacy, white head. Some barrel and vinous fruit mixed with oak. The brett dried it out but it really only left a mild off flavor on my palate. Sort of one dimensional.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Orangish straw, dirty, vigorous carbonation, sediment whirling about, head frothing over the glass, pillowy and huge.   Pale Chardonnay nose, slightly woody, floral in a candied melon sort of way.   Similar on the tongue, faint popcorn flavor as well.   A little dry, woody, with a touch of pickle on the finish.   Nose makes it seem sweeter than on the tongue.   Tart on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Perhaps a touch of Brett on the backside.   Finishes like a plain Saison with a little bit of Chardonnay character.   A little barnish after the exit, which is nice.   Decent little beer.
