3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy pour, picking up the brett when pouring. Part of a hill tasting. Some herbal notes, mostly funk going on. Decent, a good summer beer, seems to be a rustic loose interpretation of a few styles blended together. In that, more muddled than defined

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle, 0.75 l - 2014 vintage, at laiti’s, 20150613, thanks) The beer poured golden and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had tartness, fruitiness, dry wood-like scents and apple seeds. Palate was medium bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, tartness, wood-like dryness, sourness and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, sour and hoppy. Very well done balanced brew with tartness and hoppiness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle - thanks VastActiv!
Hazy pale orange, but as this was a gusher I have to punish it (-1 to look), brief head. Pleasant apricotty wood aged, bretty, aroma. Sharp palate, refreshing, and nice carbonation. Sharp acidic taste, fruity and apricotty, but predominantly acidic. A strange sour/pale ale hybrid, not entirely sure this is what the brewer was aiming for, in particular if he doesn’t have enough control over the process to keep the beer in the bottle upon opening. Not sure what the fuss is about, this is only decent, nothing to gush over.

75 cl bottle @ home, bottled 2014. Thanks jtclockwork & VastActiv!
Aroma has strong earthy notes, citrus and grapefruit. Feels like a farmhouse saison. Flavour is tart with strong earthy notes, lots of citrus, some grapefruit and orange. Dry finish. Very tart and citrusy. And very farmhouse.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 bottle, dark lord line share. Cloudy light yellow. In one word it’s yeasty. Barnyard, pepper, dry white wine. I guess for me it has way to much of the Brett and barnyard stuff going on and not enough sour to balance it out. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Probably more wrong with me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014 Bottle into an HF glass. Pours golden with a white head. Aromas of HF yeast, Brett, musty funk, citrus. Taste is similar. Lots of musty funk in the taste up front; lightly bitter, some citrus, finishes tart. A lot more funk than I normally enjoy in my beers.... Would love to have tried this when fresh.
