4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bomber into a Portsmouth brewing tulip glass.
The color is bright orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice thin lacing.
The smell is a bit floral with a touch of hop aroma. There is also a great Belgian yeast aroma mixed with some slight fruits in the nose. Peach and pear aroma comes out just slightly as a tease for things to come.
The taste has a nice Belgian flavor with some floral hops coming meet you at first. A fruit flavor swims about this beer as it turns to a wet peach or apple skin flavor with hop bitterness returning to reclaim its dominance at the forefront of this beer,
The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkability that gives off a smooth mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2011 bottle. Pour is hazed bright golden orange with a tight white head. Nose is strong brett, citrus and a good bit of lemon, dusty notes, hint of herbal tea behind. Taste also has a ton of brett, a little overpowering in the flavor, still extremely citrusy with a good bit of lemon. More dusty notes, moderately herbal, hints of cobb webb. Body is light, even so faintly syrupy in back, very assertively carbonated, and a fairly dry finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is nice and fruity with a decent floral character. Light spicy phenolic character. Light graininess with a moderate yeast character.
Pours a cloudy golden orange with some light brown notes and a fairly thick, somewhat tall white head that displays above average retention while slowly fading to the edges. Moderately high lacing with faint legs.
Flavor is less appealing than the aroma with a light graininess and medium citrus and stone fruit. Medium light floral notes with a light bitterness and soft water character. Medium light phenolic notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a really nice beer with a great soft water character and tons of nice floral and fruit esters. I really like the way the aroma is more floral while the flavor is fruity. Nice, balanced phenolic notes.

bottle. Orangish with minimal head. Lightly tart, I’d imagine from the Kombucha. Somewhat floral and fruity. Belgian yeast. Pretty good. Unique.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Bottle / 2011] Thanks, Mike! Gusher alert! Staggered mix of gold, orange, & amber; hazy with small, floating sediment, topped with almost no head (but it gushed!), just a mild white ring. Aroma is very musty, cellar-like, & dirty, with undertones of light apple & grape skins with a hint of peppery spice. Taste has a bigger Belgian yeast presence; light rotten banana, clove, a hint of cherry tartness, bubblegum, & heavy funk... Musky, funky, dry cheesecloth with a big, dirty cobweb presence. A touch chalky in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It poured a hazy orange/amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of fruit notes with strawberries, apricots, peaches, pears, citrus, floral notes and an earthy note. The taste was of berries, guava, earthy notes, flowers and a some bitterness. It was medium bodied and pretty refreshing. Good stuff.
