Tap at blind tiger. Pleasant floral. Citrus. Pine. Nice. Taste has a weird rot note that is a tad offputting. Some light lemon. Sweaty pear. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell 29/10/12.
Hazed pale golden with a thin white head that soon clears the edge.
Nose carries a good waft of bretts, funk, horse blanket, spice.
Taste follows, light yeast esters, spice, herbal tones.
Medium bodied with a little too much spritzyness in the carbonation for my liking. Dry in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at The Boilermaker in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a very cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Glass is left coated with soapy lacing. Looks incredible!
Musty aroma with really nice bretty funk. Dry and earthy smelling with a subtle lactic presence, booze and light fruit notes. Orval yeast is prominent with estery fruit notes and musty funk.
Slightly watered down with a decent yeast presence but it’s more bready than anything. Musty Orval funk flavor is very faint. Some banana, bread and light fruit with a well masked ABV(even though it’s kind of low). Refreshing and easy to drink just kind of boring and lacking complexity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy golden amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, caramel, flowers, and strong herbal notes. The taste of herbs came through most, leaving a strong sweetness, and a wild bretty finish. But overall this just didn’t come together at all.
