Savor. The guy pouring it, said that this was a young batch, and as it ages, it takes on a good sour flavor. I didn’t get much out of this young beer. I need to try and find an older batch.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank it with Alessandro out of a bottle. It’s rather complicated. We were really ambivalent: it’s rich, exceptional, and has much to tell. BUT: it’s too unbalanced, noisy, there is to much yeast in the nose. We compared it with 12 tone music. It’s strange, unusual, it’s beyond reach. We didn’t fully understand it.

Bottle share @ Surly Darkness day 2013. Hazy orange/yellow with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is brett, wheat germ, grapes, and spice. Flavor is a bit sweeter - caramel malt, brett, wheat grain, earth, musty.

Sampled at Big Brew Beer Festival (Morristown). Poured a clear yellow color with a big foamy white head. Aroma of sweet tangerine skins, light citrus, wheat, and yeast. Taste mimics the nose with tangerine skins, sweet citrus, wheat, and a hint yeasty.

750 ml bottle to taster (thanks to Tom at Neon’s for the pour!). Looks good; a hazy lemon with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; mild Belgian yeast (almost saison-ish) and notes of citrus zest and mild spices. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel that’s on the dryer side. A nice example of the style.

Bottle - Pours hazy gold with a massive white head. Near the entire glass is head on the pour. Nose is plasticy Brett, real dry and leathery, with lemon rind and dusty yeast. Taste is dry and lemony, Bretty as hell, plastic and dry with dusty yeast and tartness. Thin and fluffy with biting carbonation. Really good stuff.
