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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Beer Revolution. This one pours golden with a descent white head. The aroma is thick with bread crust and orange. The flavor is the some with an emphasis on orangy hops and some mild funk that dries it out in the finish. The body is thin, but lots of flavor in this table beer. Not much Belgian yeast flavor, but I really enjoyed the mildly hoppy and dry bretty finish.

draft at Beer Revolution. Nice light Belgian nose. pretty golden color. Sweetish flavor, almost like grainy. Light refreshing body. Boardering on a light IPAD rather than a Belgian.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a relatively clear golden-straw color with a sizable white head.
S: Interesting aromas to this one. Heavy on the grass and straw with a good amount of peppery phenols. A good amount of sweet fruits such as pears and apples along with bread and cracker malts and a healthy dose of yeast.
T: Sweet pale, cracker malts start this one off. The yeast contributions are on display here as well. Lots of wet straw and white pepper. A little bit of green apple skins along with some actual yeast itself. Just a very light bitterness.
M: Medium in body with a medium to high carbonation.
O: The Brettanomyces does add something interesting to this beer. It would be nice to see where this beer might go with age.

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.
