3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy honey color with a huge, foamy white head...bottle was a slow gusher. Aroma has notes of pair and herbal bitterness...very lightly medicinal like a faint iodine. Flavor is very rindy and herbal with some bretty notes and funk...still some pear here...definitely funky...mildly medicinal but not to its detriment. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is bretty/rindy/herbal.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by czar, thanks Martin! Hazy yellow with a frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is really interesting with brettanomyces, loads of fruits, citrus and slight spices. Taste is about the same with a slight bitter/pineapple sticky finish. Mouthfeel is dry. Carbonation is prickly. Very good Belgian Ale. If it was not of the sticky bitter finish, it would be a great beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Dave ! Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with tons of sticky gaseous foam that rises with little agitation. On the nose its complex and inviting... nice lemony tartness mingles with citrus, barnyard funk and some nice vinous fruit. The palate is as yummy as the nose and just as complex with great juicy orange, bitter citrus peel, hop funk and vinous tartness all coming together in a well balanced focused finish. Wow

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy pale yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma consists of pungent herbal hops with loads of funky notes and some rustic malt also discernable. Taste is a unique and funky mix between some herbal and floral hops with pungent notes with some rustic malt and light residual sugar notes. Brett is well dosed and hard to distinguish. Body is full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. This beer made for a very nice Christmas eve treat.
