3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a a dark hazy golden with a full foamy head that lasts a long time. Aroma is floral and grassy. Contains some citrus fruit elements; orange, pineapple, along with apple. Taste is quite hoppy, although it is not overpoweringly so. It is spicy, and tart, while the citrus from the aromas is most present in the flavor. Smooth all around.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Holy Schmoly this is going to be a great summer. This beer is just right for a hot day so refreshing.
Aroma is pinapple, pear, candy, floral, lavender, hay and grass with some sweet earthiness
Appearance is the only thing really lacking. HUGE white head that turns to merengue and never leaves. Cloudy yellow with nonstop champagne like bubbles. Honestly a head this big is kind of annoying.
Taste. Is aroma with sweetness on the tongue and a super refreshing cleanliness to the palate that just leaves you wanting another sip.
Overall Iím sorry itís already gone form my glass and Iím looking forward to my next.

2 Apr 2012, bottle, pinkish orange, slightly hazy, steady bubbles, foamy head fades fast. wild nose, so much happening. Brett yeast is first and strongest with the faintest of belgian strong ale alcohol in the background. med/thin body and a bit fizzy. has a certain earthy, cobweb taste, straw, some twinges of sour, and a dried grassy hop flavor. it wouldnít have been my flagship beer but it has some nice elements.

(12oz bottle). Pours hazy orange-golden with off-white head. Aroma is belgian yeast, citrus, and a little earthiness. Taste is sweet with some more earthiness and some mild bitterness. Medium bodied and oily with a drier finish. Pretty decent, considering I donít care much for the style.

Bottle at the Flying Saucer, Nashville. Cloudy orange, big dense white head. Smells awesome - bretty funk, Citrus hops, some bubblegum and banana. Like a hoppier Orval, I suppose. Lots of funky notes, plus some fruit. Piney, sticky hops in the finish. I really dug this stuff...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light amber color with a huge white head. A really nice Brett character. Heavy on the fruit (especially apple), a bit of pear, lots of straw and grass, and a mild spice. Some bread and cracker and a light citric quality on the finish. The flavor is slightly tart and citrusy with lemon and lime notes. Light tropical fruit character as well as some pear and apple. Good bread and a mild spice note to it as well. Really nice.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an orange copper color with a big fluffy lively head that puffed out of the glass.... Definitely some brettanomyces in there, great barnyard aromas with a underlying sour citrus notes. The flavor explodes just like the aroma with a great rustic backbone rounded out with citrusy hop bitterness and a quality finish.
