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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
