4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting. Nose is citrus hoppy with a subtle horse like aroma. The beer is hazy reddish copper with a pillowy white head. The taste is citrus hop, more of the banyardness, and a little metallic touch. The body is medium with a bitter twang. Good but different.

I’m not a huge Belgium style fan, and I found this to be pretty weak. Lacking on flavor imo

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle: Pours a slightly hazy golden brass with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with a lot of barnyard funk and some floral hops. Starts with decent fullness and effervescent carbonation with a mild sweetness and grassy and floral hop flavor along with plenty of dry, earthy, and semi-tart brett funkiness toward the finish. True to style and dangerously drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden caramel with a large, chunky white head. Aroma is pine, hops, citrus, a slight bit of sweetness from the malt backbone, and clean, dry brett through the finish. They really hit the balance on the hops and the brett perfectly on the aroma. Taste is slight hop bitterness up front with some pine and perhaps a bit of citrus before giving way to dry brett through the back half and then finishing a slight bit of malt sweetness and some bitterness. The brett suggests toast and a slight herbal character. The taste like the aroma is well-balanced. Mouthfeel is tight and dry. I really like this beer. Excellent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is quite funky with the typical urinal cake and barnyard qualities that Bret brings. There is also a definite floral note as well a herbal quality. The appearnace is golden with a nice foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and better than most of this type. The palate is thin. Overall a really strange beer but I like it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Whole Foods, P st, DC 4-pack ($12): Pours a light copper colour with a prodigious white head. Aroma is hell of powerful. It hits you like a bouquet of flowers, even with a stuffy nose. Some light fruitiness in there too along with le funk. Taste is quite hoppy at the front. Got some funk and earthiness in there. The Brett is certainly present in good form. Taste is weird and funked out. Aftertaste is much the same. Fortunately, I like beer like this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to 17thfloor. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a thick white head. Aroma is very nicely herbal, a light funk, fruity and hoppy, all kinds of goodness going on. Nice tropical character along with the belgian yeast giving the spicy funk. Flavor really brings out the sweet tropical fruits more, still a bit of funk, the brett really hitting heavy towards the finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Excellent beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a murky amber, huge white head that leaves soapy lacing.
The smell is dominated by brett. Smells like an Orval but less complex with a bigger medicine scent.
The taste is mostly brett too, a subtle bit of hops rounds it out.
If you like brett give it a try.
