3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ The Linkery. Cloudy copper-orange color, thin persistent white head. Light palate, lightly carbonated. Light funk and citrus present on the aroma, very light Belgian yeast tones. Taste was mainly a tart funk and Belgian yeast show, backed by some sweetness. The hops come out more in the finish, accenting the brett nicely.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
RBSG: Tap @ The Linkery. Poured a hazed orange color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was pretty nice smelling like tart orange skins and wood. The flavor was mildly tart with a dry hop bitter finish. To me the flavor was lacking compared to the aroma. Light to medium bodied.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From tap at the Linkery. Aroma is dense brett and woody. Look is strange muddy orange with no head. Aroma is stunning orange, hops fruity and wood. Dense orange flavoured and wooden dry, tart too. Dense and dry finish yet smooth and wooden. Looks terrible but aroma/flavour is fantastic.

On tap at the Linkery, poured opaque golden orange with a two finger tight bubbled head. Tart, sour Bret funk nose. Flavor similar, but less complex or full. Some citrus acidity and tartness from mid to finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy orange, with a thick, creamy off white head. The aroma is pretty funky, lots of orange citrus, and mild acidity. The flavor was more of the funk, some tartness, with good doses of that orange citrus. The brett was quite evident throughout as its funkiness was its most unique character. Pretty interesting and nicely drinkable, but not mind blowing.

Stone Sourfest. Very original concept. Definately hoppy and sour on the finish. I don’t think i’ve tasted anything quite like it.

Sampled at the Stone Sour Fest. Not very sour at first. Aromas were yeasty Belgian style. Flavors were somewhat hoppy with just a touch of sour on the finish. Not too bad. But not as sour as what we were having that day.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On-tap at Stone Sour Fest. 1st taster, high hopes, let down for me. Pours cloudy brown/orange with a big creamy white head, good spider web lace. Smells of some characteristic Brett and barrel smells, vinegar, and sour. Tastes bretty, sour and a little funky. Sour malty, no sign of the hops. Thin body, weak carbonation.
