3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours nice clear blond with some head and lacing. Aroma is of pilsner malt (or something like that), fruits, yeast. Taste is of fruits, malt, very sligth bretts, but not that much on the funk side. Palate: Medium body, round. Overall: I guess this one is to young (6 months old), and maybe some bretts would develop with time, like orval. Anyways, for now, this one is good, but far from outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (375 ml). Thanks to jp7161! Slightly hazy golden with a small white head and intense lacing. There’s surprisingly no brettanomyces in the aroma. There a lot of "missing" aroma, but not much except pilsner malt and Season yeast (?). There’s no brettanomyces in taste either, but there’s slight fruity notes (maybe from the brett yeast). Moderately sweet. Palate is clean. Medium carbonation. Slightly watery. Good Belgian Ale and well balanced and disappointing considering the aroma and that there’s absolutely no brettanomyces in there despite the name of the beer. Drinkable. Maybe too young?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 corked and caged. Bottled 5/24/12. Pours a thick, tiny bubble, well retained white head, with extensive lacing, over a cloudy yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is light barnyard, malt, cinnamon, ginger....taste is light sweet, hints of lemon, light cinnamon, light ginger, finishing with sweet floral honey tones....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds a tingle in the spice. This is a mild sour ale. While the Brett characteristics are present they are not as obvious as in many in this broad style. BJCP 8/2/13/4/7
