On tap at the night of the Funk - November 5, 2010. I am quite glad we decided to go for a bunch of this rather than wait in the insane Lost Abbey line. Reviewed from notes. While I might normally have an issue rating from a tasting glass, this beer was so incredibly fragrant I don’t know if it made a difference. Pours a moderate orange color with a pretty good white head plus some minor lacing. The nose is what really hits the spot and the citrus aromas are overwhelming. Beautifully done notes of orange and some lightly-tropical fruits. A bit of floral and earth character as a tiny bit of the Brett is able to sneak its way in. The flavor is not quite as outstanding as the nose, but is really nice. A moderate funk exists below the hops throughout. Really nice citrus and floral character. Right up there with Super Friends in terms of IPAs with Brett. Feel is crisp, zesty, and pretty bitter. Really fantastic dry finish on a light-to-medium body. Incredible all around. While I didn’t enjoy the other two beers Lawson’s had that night, this won best of show for me. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-16-2010

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of herbs, weed, leather, some citrus, and florals. Flavor of grass, florals, brett, light citrus, earth, and leather.
