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.

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.

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.

The pour is slipping my mind, but i think it was a deep golden color. Nose was hints of brett and plenty of belgian yeast. Nose has toasted grain, bread, grass, mild funk. Flavor is sweet malts, subtle hints of brett, some background notes of fruit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours with a hazy golden yellow body with a lasting, creamy white head. Aromas are dry, grainy, estery, clove and pepper phenols, light funk. Tropical fruit notes (pineapple) that could be either from hops or Brett C. A lightly grassy and citrusy hop character. Flavors are dry, spritzy, lightly bitter and crisp. Light earthy and woodsy notes, light funk. A noticeable lemon/sorachi ace character in the finish. Medium bubbles, dry and crisp. Very easy and enjoyable to drink.

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.

Sampled at Beer Revolution on 8/20/2011. This Belgian Ale pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium to large sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, yeasty and citrusy. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity, yeasty and sweet. The hops are grapefruity. Decent carbonation. Touch of yeast, some funk and a touch of banana. Interesting beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean an smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.
