3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a wildly fragrant aroma that really comes through. Pours golden with a thick head. Taste is mild all around, not being overpowering in any respect.

The word Belgian is misleading here. IPA, or even pale ale would be more appropriate. The malt is there early, followed by an unusual semi-sweet hop flavor bringing up the rear. Reasonable, not complex, a little heavy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquor - Wakefield, RI. Slightly styrofoamy aroma, with a bit of hop pungency. Spicy and Orval-like. Well carbonated and explosive, as a good Belgian Ale should be. This really reminds me of super-fresh Orval, with more hops. I guess thatís what itís going for. A little less malt complexity. This is nicely drinkable, but thereís not a lot hitting home in the end flavorwise and the palate is really light. Thatís fine, if Iím paying $1.69, but for the $3.39 I had to shell out for 12oz, Iíd like a little more action, please.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma has grass, herbs, barnyard, toasted malts and Brett character with splashes of fruit and yeast. The flavor has more of the barnyard funk, grass, toasted malts with Brett influences. There is a hint of sweet Belgian yeast and sugar working its way in. Interesting and would like to revisit a bottle in a while to see how it changes.

bottle-Pours darker orange lightly hazy with a fluffy white head that lasted a very long time with sudsy-ness along the sides of the glass. nose is lite spice, barnyard (funk, mold) lite phenols, lite plastic note, and lite straw. flavors exhibit alot of the funk yeast qualities along with toasted malt grains, lite spice, lots of bitter hops (for this style) and lingering funk on the finish. This is alot better than theTreasure Chest beer and one of this breweries best! body is soft, full yet crisp with the perfect amount of carbonation. very well done GF

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle. Lots of loosely packed foam above a copper orange base. Musky perfume aromas, blooming flowers in the spring garden come to mind. The flavour is a bit perfumery as well but it is not too bad. Sits in the mouth well, has a good strong body and
lingers on the palate.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Appearance: very clear golden orange color, white head dissipating quickly. Aroma: first pour whiff almost skunky to me, but I think thatís the new style for me that I just donít know (think itís a kind of barnyard Brett smell); very earthy almost dirt yeast presence that works well with very sweet honeysuckle and orange and tart lemon citrus scent. Taste: strong meyer lemon citrus up front, some caramel malt coming through in the middle, finishing with a kind of lemony tartness and dried leaves taste that lingers a bit; very interesting/different yet delicious. Mouthfeel: relatively thin, medium "scrubbing" carbonation, very dry finish. Overall: this is my first Brett beer and Iím pleasantly surprised. Didnít know what was going on at first whiff so I looked it up and it made sense. Donít really love that aroma, but I really like the complexity of taste.
