3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I love finding new Heretic brews in town.. Very cool. Enjoyed a nice goblet at PreFunk tonight while out with Ditmier. Pours a clear golden.. okay lacing and cap.
Nose is bretty.. pale malt spiked with wet dog and wool socks.. light citrus hoppiness.
Flavor mirrors the nose.. bretty notes that remind me interesting beers don’t need a monster ABV... light pale malt helps carry the brett... hops are a bit perfumy making for a "shampooed wet dog"... could maybe be a bit drier.
Light body and nice bubble.
I am surprised I like this one as much as I do... I like Orval, but I would drink this most times over Orval... The hops really help.

Clear golden pour at the brewery taproom. White head and lacing. Nose is slightly tropical stone fruit and a hint of grass. Taste is clean and crisp, some tropical fruit. No funk here. Refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a half finger of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma has that "Bretty" smell and some grain. Nice.
The taste has moderate lemon bitterness and some mild pine. Good balance.
The texture is crisp.

Sampled in a bomber. A sparkingly belgian ale with high carbonation. Really nice malt palate with a light layering of hops.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Gourmet Haus. Nice aroma mixing both citrus and spice from the yeast. Moderate amount of lemon as well. I got a slight amount of funk from the Brett, but not too much. Well balanced and tasty.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Served a clear copper-yellow with a thin finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some good lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of slightly sour Brett with some lemon peel and other citrus aromas, and some Belgian yeast esters with a bit of bready malts.
T - Starts off with some light tartness and sourness with some citrus and light yeast esters. Through the middle, some more citrus and lemon peel comes through with some coriander, Brett, and light bready malts. The finish is a mix of tartness with some citrus, yeast, and spice.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a tart and dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced with a good complexity and depth added by the Brett.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale straw coloured pour with a lovely white head. The nose is great. Fresh, spicy and slightly minty. A touch of white pepper and some sweet herbal, minerally character. Flinty and slightly tropical with a bit of light fruit as well. A touch of gooseberry and kiwi character in addition to a nice mintiness. Really solid brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Subtle aroma, light dose of spicy hops, faintly malty, a bit of brett in the background. Pours a very hazy golden, thin creamy white head with average retention and lots of lacing. Lightly spicy flavor, pepper and faint brett, maybe some rye, sort of subdued. Medium body and carbonation.
