Review from backlog, tasted 08/14/2011. Pours translucent copper, fluffy white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma is fresh, soft yeasty nose with herbal hops, brighter citrus notes as well, and lighter biscuit malts. Taste follows the nose, with more citrus hop flavor coming through, light malt backbone and finally a hint of brett. Thin in the mouth, but sharp and crisp, creamy carbonation, fairly drinkable. Enjoyed this one.

On tap at Riverside Market in Fort Lauderdale. Pours amber with a light tan head and aroma of malt and spices. Taste is balanced, malt notes with bread and caramel along with lighter spice finish. Nice brew

Hazy dark copperish amber with a foamy light beige head. The nose has some light chocolate grains and a slightly herbal Belgian doughy yeast. Flavor is nice and full though on a medium palate. Playful notes of chewy chocolate malts play with a light Belgian pale fruitiness like banana and pear esters, on a doughy off-sweet finish.

Bottle. Clear golden amber, with a rocky white head. Citrus, grainy malt, peppery, lemon grass, hoppy, banana sweetness, yeast, and light Brett funk. An interesting and drinkable beer, the Brett may develop more over time.

A: The pour is amber in color with a rather large white head. S: I like the smell on this one. Floral and spicy with quite a lot of yeast. Thereís a mild bread note and not much sweetness. Not a super pronounced Brettanomyces character, but there is a bit of leather to it. T: The flavor isnít quite as good. Spicy and yeasty, with some light floral notes. The Brettanomyces character is once again subdued in terms of the flavors. Bready malt is about all the sweetness this one has. A light bitterness and maybe just a hint of fruit. M: The body is somewhat light with a crisp, dry feel and high carbonation. O: This seems to be a somewhat polarizing beer. I thought it was nice, but others didnít like it so much. To each his own.

Bottle errr..case from lagunitas fan...pours hazy orange, thin layer of tan. Nose has chunky belgian yeast notes, a touch of brett, and some ripe fruit like mango...maybe pineapple and apricot too, but mostly mango. Decent, especially for a belgian american pale...donít taste the brett yet though...which sucks when you got to balance the need for the brett to come timewise v. the dissapating hop character...but whatever. Its clean, fruity, certainly estery, but somewhat enjoyably floral and non-offensive. A good case for trade extras Iím thinkin.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Bottle courtesy of richiesd. Pours copper with a large off white head. Smells lightly fruity, bretty, dry malty hints, floral. Tastes of wildflowers, grassy, peppery, bitter, metallic with a dry semi astringent finish. Great nose, but the taste doesnít quite live up.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Interesting 12 oz bottle from womencantsail as an extra. Thanks! Pours a rich glowing fiery orange amber, a good haze, sunset edges and glow with a pretty big cakey tannish head that stays pretty sizable. Laces ok. Aromas are a melange of citrus and spicy yeast, Belgian yeast, with lots of bread, dough, apples, pear. Touches of sun tan lotion, some herbiness, dry floral and earthy hops. Some gentle spice mellows out. Dry, touches of pine dance into the fold, with a good yeastiness, dry with ok fruity sweetness. Initial is lighter bodied offering a solid dryness up front, that sun tan lotion, herbal quality, pine and earthy dry hops. Moving into some bready malts, touches of spicy yeast, lingering dryness, bread dough and some cool mellow apple and pineapple sweetness. Backend stays dry, some touches of bread and dough, yeastiness is subtle. The beer remains quite dry overall. Hoppy, with touches of ABV into the backend. Keeps away from that sweet and yeasty bomb Iím used to (and dislike). Pretty good.
