3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2012 Orangish gold pour good head with a layer settleing and some lacing
Aroma is juicy fruit gum, mild spicy,orange cream maybe some breadiness,nice blegian aroma with tropical.Some mineral.
first taste was intense with a sharp citrus,belgian,carbonation,some old off yeast taste,initiallly had a clean light taste but as it warms some light malt character comes out but seems pretty hop foward with a lot of citrus in taste and finish.
there is a big dryness/chaulkiness in taste and finish with alot of citrus and the belgian character throughout.Nicely sessionable,but has just a bit of staleness to it.Maybe thats the musty/baryard character.Im not all that impressed with a crappy old stale stinky character in this otherwise i would have enjoyed it more. Yet another reason im not im that impressed with american belgian beers.Ill take an orval or piraat.
Rerated this leaving the yeast sediment in the botle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy burnt orange with a tall, fluffy off white head. Aroma is sharp bretty funk, wet fallen leaves, barnyard, musty basement, some fruity, spicy ester, citrus and floral hops and cereal grain. Flavor is starts off with a light malt sweetness, then a little graininess and some subtle funk meanders in, floral and spicy hops, stone fruit, wet hay, fallen leaves, light sweet vinous notes, and some light citrus bitterness and lingering funk to the finish. Palate is medium bodied, creamy on entry, has a medium but fairly sharp carbonation and still fairly creamy, but dry finish. Fantastic beer all around, not quite Orval, but not far off.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of citrus, little tropical fruit, white grape, brett funk of barnyard and leather. The flavor follows the aroma with lemon zest, tropical fruit, citrus, vinous white grape notes, brett funk again of leather, barnyard and wet hay. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a really interesting take on Orval, kind of like Mikkeller It’s Alive.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours bronzed hay. Head is bright white with complex nose ripe wiTh bitters, grape, and wheat. Lively on the tongue with tangy apple, rock candy, and zesty citrus. Hops layer in a ephemeral veil adding balance to a well crafted beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a hazy amber color with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Big brett in the aroma kinda dominates anything else. Tart, earthy and with a bit of citrus and plastic. The taste is citrus, earthy notes, Brett, stone fruits. Medium bodied. Interesting.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is yeast, hops and some funk. The flavor is citrus hops, yeast and a lasting bitter finish somewhat similar to Duvel Triple Hop. The hoppiness that lends a bitterness to this helps make this a very good Belgian Ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy, dark orange, with a 2.5-finger creamy beige head. Aromas of dusty yeast, musty wet hay and dog, and slight pimento. The flavor is dusty and musty yeast, mild funky citrusy hops, and apricot/papaya fruitiness in the finish. Medium carbonation and body, easy-drinking, and really quenching. This was really nice, I’m glad I picked up a bottle.

Cloudy orange amber in the glass. Fruity floral malt aroma mixed in with some yeasty notes. Dry citrus and a slight tang. Overall I was really surprised by this brew. Very tasty and drinkable. I’m purchasing more. Thanks BarZigKin for sharing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazed deep golden amber with huge foamy white head. Aroma is Brett brux, horsey with earthy cherry pits, too bad there’s a little anti-septic undertone in here. Perhaps at different stages the Brett comes off smelling a little better. Flavors have a nice soft horsey barnyard character, cherry pits and vanilla come in there too along with a grassy and peppercorn bitterness. Firm mouth feel. Probably the closest thing to orval I’ve had and shockingly it came from green flash. I’m gonna sit my other two bottles and see if the Brett can clean this up and dry it out a bit more. I’m surprised this was released so bretty. I could see this getting better in 6 months.
