Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear yellow color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good to excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart flavor with a medium to heavy sour & tart finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

750 ml bottle to taster (2011 vintage; shared by alexsdad06). Looks good for the style; a cloudy deeper honey with fluffy eggshell head. Smells semi-sweet and yeasty. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a dry, bretty mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

At the 2012 Barrel Aged Beer Event. I was expecting more from this. Not very tart or very "brett-y" to my taste. Did not taste like 9.5% for sure but was certainly not strong. Mild to me.

Bottle thanks to Tim, pours bright hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma is part cider and part funky yeast. Flavor is not as funky as the nose leads on but has some Belgian yeast tartness much like the seasonal from this brewery. Nice clean light malt bill with the fruity/yeast tartness finishing nicely. I like it.
