3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Dexters, pours a clear amberish copper with an off white head, the aroma catches you right away, a good amount of tartness with funk and fruit as well, the flavor has a sweet yet hoppy front end, strange I know but it works, the brett really comes through in the finish, dry yet refreshing at the same time, the wine doesn’t completely shine through, but you can tell it’s a little different, not bad at all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 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.

On tap at OBrien’s next to Little Freak. I like Little Freak a little better, but both are excellent. Yellow orange color. Mild sourness. Orange peel hop bitterness. Easy to drink. Low carbonation. Excellent.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on tap at O’Brien’s during SDBW. The appearance is a pale golden orange with a bigger white head. The Brett jumps out pronouncedly in the nose. Sweet tarts, lemon, pale and golden malts. The flavors follow with lemon, sweet-tarts, malty, light hop additions, and a drying oak. Medium to full bodied mouth that is well carbonated. Very refreshing ale.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Blind Tiger. Cloudy gold amber with very lacy white head. Super lacy. Aroma of light basement funk, barn/hay, light toasted grains. Taste is brett funky going medium bitter in finish. Medium carbonation, good liveliness on tongue. Hides booze very well, dangerous.
