3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch 1 - What a difference a year makes! I remember trying this a year ago and being unimpressed. I imagine part of that is my palate changing, but am sure that the wild yeast has gone to work and improved this beer quite a bit.
Pours out a beautiful slightly hazy golden yellow with a pillowy, frothy white head.
Nose is impressive, lots of brett, some lemon zest, a bit of pepper, floral yeast, and a bit of earth. Feel is excellent, light, crisp, dry, frothy.
Taste follows the nose - complex, earthy, a touch of lemon, and a bit of malt.

Pour a slightly hazed golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Nose has a light oak and hint of vanilla. Light mineral note, a bit if dusty cob webb brett with a bright lemon, hints of pepper and a lighter yeast note with a touch of soapy hop. Taste is actually a bit tart, a touch more soapy and the oaky vanilla flavors are more subtle. Still a bit of bright lemon juice and golden fruits that makes it rather enjoyable with a touch of mineral towards the finish. Body is light and drinkable with a moderate carbonation.

Dark Golden pour with small off-white head. Citrus and funk with wheat notes. Dry, clean, citrusy. Medium body. Slighty sticky finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample (batch 1) via and shared with oakbluff. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Somewhat odd aromas of crabapple and white grape juice, cut grass, and iron. Flavors are of tart lime rind, hothouse flowers, and unbuttered popcorn. Extremely dry and light bodied. Tasted good as is, but I wonder if we hung onto this bottle just a little too long.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Batch 2013): Arôme bretteuse, vineuse et florale, très effervescent et pointu. Les arômes se transposent en bouche de façon admirable, l’équilibre est impressionnant. Finale sèche et vineuse et présence acétique, buvabilité naturelle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/4/2013. Hazy pale yellow with no head at all. This was almost like pouring soda. The head disappeared immediately. It may have been a bad bottle, but I’m a bit disappointed. Bought this one at the brewery. Flavors were tart, sour with a bit of oak showing through, but I can’t say I truly enjoyed this one.

From 375mm bottle. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Awesome. Tart, spicy, incredibly balanced. Lingering flavors of citrus. Incredibly crisp finish. Just an incredible beer.

Pours a hazy blond with a sticky soft foam head. The aroma is of light oak, wine, citrus, very floral, and yeast. In the flavor I got a weak vinegar taste, citrus, lemon, minor white grape, yeast, and wheat grains. The beverage is kind to the palate. The finish was pleasant and left a refreshing aftertaste. Overall a solid drink, very drinkable.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Recent batch poured from a 750ml bottle, thanks Danny! Beautiful, hazy straw-colored body yields copious white head & lace. White foam overstays its welcome, littering my glass after the liquid entered my belly.
Soured grain meets funky microflora barrels. Lemon-lime citrus peel among the Brettyness; funky all over. Just the right amount of tartness. Hay, grassy, earthy qualities are all present without stealing the spotlight (as they often do in this style). So smooth, so well-made.
Dammit Shaun, this is awesome. Cheers.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy blond color with three fingers of fizzy white foam. The nose is light and spritzy with aromas of dew covered straw, floral grass and some zesty citrus and light notes of tropical fruit. The palate si fizzy and bright with lots of carbonation almost seltzer like with nice minerality and acidity... fuzzy lemon, hints of barnyard funk and floral wheat notes round out the palate and creates a soft complexity that is like no other beer Ive ever had. Beautiful beer.
