3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy/creamy, off-white, and eternal. Body is hazy light amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (resin), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with light notes of pepper, gum, band-aid, lemon zest, alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Well, the raw/green resinous hop odor is really unfortunate (and un-Belgian), but otherwise this has lots of potential. Several months of cellaring will hopefully allow the crude hop nose to die down and the secondary characteristics (including the Brett, which is already evident) to stand out. Very nice flavor balance and mouthfeel, though...very dry and velvety and quaffable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is clove, citrus, an earthiness and funkiness. Taste is sweet crisp maltiness with light honey and caramel. A definite sour and vinegar presence here but it finished pretty smooth. Appearance is a clear gold with a medium fluffy head that retains quite well.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Either I got a bad batch or this beer is whack. HUGE carbonation level, spurted all over my desk and took 20 min to pour a decent looking beer. Yeasty flavor is about all I get other than my mouth wanting to explode from the carbonation. Some orange I guess. All 4 bottles in the pack had the same crazy carbonation. Reminds me of a high gravity homebrew bottled way too early.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy bright gold with a thick frothy white head. Tastes like pine and grassy hop bitterness, with some funkyness, light bready malts, and some citrus fruit, and with some lingering hop resin. Medium body and carbonation. Smells grassy, like pine, and citrus hops, biscuit and straw malts, orange peel, lemon, herbs, and some funk.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2015 Four pack at Hopey for 4.99 Good ol Hopey. I am intrigued. Really difficult pour- super carbonated. Big soapy lacey head over a nice murky amber brew. Lots of citrus - grapefruit, lemon - upfront with plenty of funk int the mid-palate and finish. Strong brett character. Belgian yeast really works here. Lots going on. Dry and crisp and green apple bitter at the end. It’s well done.
03/02/2015 More funk than I remember. Distinct barnyard aftertaste. The older the beer gets the more prominent funk gets and the rest fades into background. Somewhat out of balance.
