COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Modeled after an English Ordinary Bitter with a few decidedly Belgian stylings. Waldman is brewed with Northern Brewer hops and 36 lbs of Belgian Candi Sugar then fermented with a Belgian ale yeast. We finish with Brettanomyces "Wild" yeast strain and a heavy dose of dry hops. The Brett is carried over to the bottles where Waldman continues to develop complex flavors throughout the bottle conditioning.

Nice brett nose up front, floral earthy hops, a little caramel, a little orange, a light fruity yeast shows up as well as some dust. Nice nose. Pours hazy golden orange, big head and lace. Flavors of dusty yeast, a little basement, light funk, caramel, earthy floral hop notes. Slightly fruity in the mid palate and finish. Dry, funky with light bitterness finishes. Well carbonated. Really damn good stuff.

500 ml bottle, corked and caged thanks to Alex. Pours a deep yellow color with a medium white head. A great funky nose very intense with brett and light lemon. The flavor is excellent; lots of fruity pale ale here with delicate funky brett and straw. Very drinkable and damn good.

Bottle, corked and caged from the brewery. Pour is a bright, mellon yellow with tight bubbles. Aroma is citrusy funk. Sour, but not much complexity. Flavors are Sharp, fresh, but straightforward.

Big thanks to jconrick1 for this 375mL corked and caged bottle. Served in a cervoise. Pours a somewhat-cloudy light golden color with a large, foamy white head. Sheet of lacing on the way down. The nose brings some really nice hop aroma with floral, herbal, and light citrus qualities. Some fruit and earth notes behind that. The Brett plays in well there. The flavor is quite nice as well. Brett notes are pretty strong along with moderate hop flavor and a good dose of dry Brett through the finish. A bit of horse blanket along with a touch of hay and light fruit. A bit of melon (honeydew, specifically) as it warms. Body is light-medium with moderate carbonation. Quite nice.

CampesinoTino (771) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2012
375ml bottle from the brewery. Appearance is a cloudy peach and gold color with plenty of foamy head and active carbonation. Interesting blend of sour Brett funk, candi sugar and fruity esters in the aroma. The flavor starts out mildly tart and sour with notes of green apple, pear and clove. Moderate sweetness in the middle followed by mild hop bitterness along with a dry, acidic finish. Overall, it’s a decent sour Belgian Pale Ale.

Think hazy tan/salmon color with diffuse head. Sweet and uric smelling bose with hot burnt sugar causing the senses to retreat from the sugar intensity. Beet sugar flavors veering again to uric acid and burnt sugar. Between the Brett funk and overall evenness, this one did not work for me.
