2010 bomber bottle and served in a Duvel snifter: Deep golden near amber hue with a lasting frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of sour apple, cheesy brett, rose hips, earthy minerals, biscuity malt, and some tannic oak vapours (could that be the tea?). The taste has a nice acidic nature, moderately sour’d and slightly funky over a layer of spearmint gum and bready malts. Fruity and finishes very dry and tannic. Wow, I am shocked by how good this beer is and the lovely complexity. The mouth feel is a tad too dry on the finish for complete refreshment however. Overall I must say that the couple of years aging as indeed done this beer a world of good.

2011 bottle from my cellar. Holy gusher, Batman! Glad I opened this near my sink!! Very slightly reddish hue to an otherwise nice Amber color. Big white head for sure. Slightly funky and horsey nose. Nice taste, still some good herbal bitterness there. Nice Brett character, and very slightly sour in the finish. Nice and dry.

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.

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.

2011 vintage. 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.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 [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.
