Golden ale with a foamy off white head. Sour funk nose. Some horse blanket, wet oak and warmed orange juice. Not unpleasant but this is still not my favorite style.

Belgian Pale Ales are really becoming a favorite of mine. Great citrus and spicy oak aroma with a slight off note that i couldnt really describe, maybe seafood? but it was very slight. Otherwise great lightly tart funky belgian pale.

Bottle courtesy of pepsiedcan. Beer aged on stones??? Pours a very cloudy tangerine color with a thick,white head. Aromas of lemon, some light funk, slightly tart. Taste follows suit - no noticeable hops, slightly tart with a dry finish. Very different and interesting.

750 ml to snifter (Batch 996). Looks good; orange with white lacing. Smells good too; tart, dry, and hoppy with oak notes. Tastes good, but surprisingly tart. Nice on the palate. Very good; flavor reminds me of Jolly Pumpkin.

Cloudy orange brown beer. Thin white head. Palate starts crisp but turns softer. Starts spicy and a little sour. Quickly overwhelmed by hop bitterness. Finishes crisp and dry with some sour oak. Unfortunately the hops impart little but bitterness which overwhelms the other things going on.

Bottle, shared by Jay. Thin white head. Little lace. Clear gold / orange color. Really interesting, tart light bitter taste. Very fine, crisp carbonation in a soft way. Dry texture. Nice floral spices, hops aroma. Pretty uplifting, very interesting ale.

Aroma is the classic, medium-light JP funk and brett. Medium-deep copper pour. Flavor is surprisingly herbal and dry with a medium bitter bretty finish.
