12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light amber color with a small, dense white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma suggests sweet malts, yeast, fruits (citrus, aplle, cherry), leather, and spices. The flavor tended to the funky side with medium sweetness, fruits (same as the aroma), and yeast. Not bad, although I am unlikely to revisit this.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This 2006 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy very softly carbonated dark orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was musty fruity and farmhouse. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of mild fruit hops caramel and dough.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2008
12 oz. single from Johnís Grocery (Iowa City, IA). 2007 Edition. Poured a hazy dark honey-esque gold with a thick offwhite head. Aroma is slightly sweet and yeasty with that nice spiciness. Initial taste is a bold alcohol infused fruitiness that is garnished with some nice spices. The alcohol is a bit much, but the taste is still there with a dry finish. Sweetness that is heavy in alcohol is my main point here. Ok. Would rather drink the Pere any time!

Had to drink this in plastic. Im not sure I should rate it, but I dont want to forget. Its a pretty strong beer that pours gold and smells of spices. Creamy and malty texture balances it well.

Mrthirstyneck (341) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2008
very very fruity nose, with some spiciness as well. Very thick, very creamy white head, that seems to lace almost like soap. flavor is sweet, fruity, but spicy as well. Lots of malts to be sure but really no noticeable hop finish. It does actually finish rather dry though. Not a bad beer. Just bought a single bottle. may try again.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2008
(Bottle) Pours a clear and dark golden color with only a small amount of white head. Aroma of sweet malts and light fruits. Taste includes a lot of apple, with some yeast and light malts as well. Average mouthfeel and palate. Easy to drink as well. This beer is all right, but I wasnít overly impressed either.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle vintage 2006 courtesy of my secret santa! Pours orange with off white head and decent lace. Semi sweet bread like aroma. Funky doughy citrus like flavors and a dry finish! Also some notable hints of nutmeg. Brett is showing wonderfully wish I had some more to tuck away.

Clear golden amber with a small white head. Sweet, yeasty aroma. Sweet and spicy flavors of vanilla, pine needles, and perfume. Medium bodied, enjoyable, but not a favorite.

12 oz bottle, from whom I donít recall. Opens with an energetic pop, overflow quickly ensues. Pours a mostly clear gold body under a large fizzy off-white head that receded leaving lots of delicate lace. The nose on this is just so delicate and beautiful. Clearly bretty with light floral hoppiness and doughy maltiness. Suggestions of fluffy yeast and marshmallows. A nice level of brett on the flavor as well, light delicate pale bready malt with a slightly drying finish. Some spiciness that seems to come from the yeast. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with pleasant lively fizzy carbonation that keeps it from feeling sticky. Overall, a nice hommage to the king of beers, Orval. I love it, wish that I had access to this on a regular basis. I would like to see how this does with age as well.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2008 Poured from a bottle (is this a screw-top?!?!) into a big-bottomed wine glass without a stem so as to experience the bouquet a bit better. Pours golden-orange-brown with a little head that disappears quickly. Lacing ainít happening all that much. Smells of fruit, a little bit of alcohol (not as much as say, a La Fin Du Monde or Bellís Sparkling Ale) and old Belgium basement/cellar and a bit like my old garage in downtown Wilmington, NC. Tastes pretty nice, due to, whatíd that guy call it, "The Brett?" Whatever. Yeasty taste, pretty unique, but not far from some trippels Iíve tasted. VERY expensive, but pretty good for the style. I got three more that will wait until New Yearís 2008/9 to drink. Weíll see how it ages.
