3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Livery, pours an orangish color with a nice white head, has some sour fruit notes to it but was nothing to go crazy over. Not a bad brew but nothing too special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a hazy amber color with minimal carbonation and white foam. A lightly tart fruit aroma, perhaps a bit of peach and lemon. Some wet oak and a bit of must and straw. The flavor isn’t terribly impressive, unfortunately. A bit watery with some mustiness, straw, and oak. A moderate acidity and some lemon zest and light fruits. Light to medium in body with low carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the hopcat. Clear straw with small white head. Aroma is yeast and alc, spice, not much of a barrel characteristic or biere de garde. Flavor is light and refreshing, spice, yeast, slight chalky, not bad but once again not much barrel charecteristic. Light, semi-watery, light carbonation. Okay.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the HopCat. Orangey yellow with n off white head. Aroma of oak, wine. Kind of salty and earthy. Flavor is oaky and yeast, a light cracker malt and sweetness. This was alright, not really sour. This beer was like a party you weren’t that excited to go to, and you went and it was alright, but afterward people keep telling you how they heard the party was so awesome and you just were kind of confused why.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2014 Bottle: 2014. Cloudy, translucent bright yellow with a slightly foamy off-white head, thin & quick to recede. Aroma of musk, hay, mild rotten pineapple Brett notes, dusty cobwebs, cotton must, withered wood, & hints of semi-tart green apple. Taste is kind of thin, almost a little watery. Slick & nice mouth feel, though. Brettanomyces present in the form of a light, acidic fruit skin tartness & a strong dampening of musty old barnyard floor. But not in a funky Belgian kind of way... Almost overly musk filled & dry without much balance. Strong notes of dried out wood, cotton, & bready yeast in the finish. Faint hint of apple, maybe some lemon. Kind of light all-around, & a little too Brett forward at times. Not bad, but fairly forgettable.

clear yellow, no head, no lace. nose is airy, with the slightest spicy trace. flavor is very mild, no trace of the barrel. watery bodied, clean finish. so weak as to be non-existant.
