3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Backlog 2012] Draft at Lost Abbey + a bottle or two at tastings since then. Pours a bright hazy orange body with white head and lacing. Aroma is spice, clove, banana, wheat, yeast and apples. Right away this is letting me down. Absolutely no brett character in the nose. Mouthfeel is medium to light and carbonated with ntoes of banana, spice, wheat and yeast. No funk, Iíll hold on to my other 2 bottles for 10 years just as a novelty to see what time does, but overall a big disapointment.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Christianssand Brygghus. Slightly hazy deep golden with a small white head. Both aroma and flavor is rather mild and subtle in this beer, but giving it some proper attention will reward. This is not a typical sour beer at all, more a decent Belgium ale with just a hint of Brett. The main flavor is sweet malt, itís also fruity, moderate bitterness, some Belgium yeast, a bit spicy and then a hint of funk. Fine body and aftertaste in same direction of the rest of the beer. Smooth and well balanced, demand some extra attention maybe.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Dull medium gold, average white head. Lightly sour apple aroma. Palate delivers low-key Brett character with sugary sweet malts. Disappointing compared to some of the Brett giants we had on this glorious day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle share at RBAG 2013 (Thanks Tony!) sampled back to back with Saints devotion. The pour is yellow and hazy with minimal white head. In terms of aroma a little more going on here than with the saints devotion, some brett, a bit of bread? some sourness but overall smells more complex than the previous bottle of saints. Like Saints, the taste is underwhelming, a bit of bread, some citrus notes (mostly lemon) but leaves you wanting more. Maybe my expectaions were to high...
