4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the last beers sampled with Andrew at THEFESTIVAL. Thankfully the brewery reps didn’t speak English too well, so when the officers/admins were yelling at everyone to stop serving these bros were still down to party like dads. Pours a cloudy, murky brownish amber with nice, creamy tan lacing. Aroma is wine, citrus fruits, wood and a nice funk. Mouthfeel is very complex with an enormous variety of flavors coming together - wine, wood, funk, tart apricot & peach, spices, vanilla, pepper and a tough of honey.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy, amber and with a big head. Fun aroma - woody, winey, apricot, a little funky. Rich, intense taste. Full body. Vinous notes, wood, with light alcohol, all kinds of spicy, honeyed complexity. Sweet citrus notes and light pepper, and of course a little noble rot accent. Very complex. Just the slightest bit of tartness late. You don’t have beers this good very often.

@Mondial de la Bière 2012, Montreal - hazy blond beer with a persistent white foam; nice lacework; barnyard and fruity notes, wood and vanilla; slightly vinegar-like, creamy palate and quite full-bodied; dusty and fruity woody finish with notes of vanilla with a lingering acidity - great beer

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange color with a thin head. Fair head retention. Aroma of earth, bread, citrus, slight funk. Fairly dry. The taste is tropical, citrus, bread and earthy notes. Medium bodied.

Huge thanks to ygtbsm94 for sharing this at a recent tasting. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a nice yellow color with a good white head. The nose carries nice Brett notes with a bit of earth underneath some hay, stone fruits, light wine, and pineapple. Some lemon comes in through the flavor. Light body and dry finish. Very nicely done beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
murky gold with a thin white head, wispy after time. Heavy Brett c mango and pineapple, hay, Fruit flesh sourness adds balance. Flavor is more harsh, Brett plastic phenols contrast sweet esters, lots of mango in the Brett. Short finish, sticky body accents singular qualities.

From the bottle, pours a hazy straw like yellow with a head that makes way to lacings. Notes of passionfruit, mango, lemon, citrus, an element of herbs as well. Very clean and bright on the palate.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94: Pours a clear deep golden bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty and floral hoppy nose with a some tart vinous fruity notes. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with a lightly sweet biscuity maltiness and tart vinous grape complexity before a drier sweettart finish. Has good balance and should age well.
