2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
375ml bottle pours semi clear dark orange with 2 finger head. Nose is weird apple grain, tomato, bitter sweet malty caramel and fruit, syrup. Taste is similar and not very good, sweet syrupy weird tomato soup, apple, wet grain, malty, bitter. Not a whole lot of funk. Finishes sweet, bitter wet multi grain, apple, vegetal fruit. Just very strange. Didn’t finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 mL bottle, split with Eugene. Bottled on 5/23/2012. Interesting to see how this had heels up. Pours a cloudy orange color with a ton of foam head. Aroma is grain dominant, with a super pasta like character. I don’t know, instant reminder. Super brett forward flavor with a creamy body. Sort spice and orange fruit. Fun beer to try. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled February 2014
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a fat-one-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a nice amber hue that shows a clear, light honey color when held up to the light. The aroma smells quite a bit like honey, with lots of flower nectar and fruit like notes, but really it smells very honey like. If you dig for it, there is subtle dried straw and pale cracker like malt notes in the finish. There is not a whole lot of complexity in the aroma, quite simple for even a primary fermented Brettanomyces beer, though the distinct honey note is interesting.
Up front there is a touch of spicy, musty phenolics, this is quite subtle and the honey like flavor comes on quite strong, fairly quickly during a sip and it lingers through to the finish. There is a bit of a bitter hop bite that extends from the beginning through to the end of each sip, though the floral honey and malt sweetness is definitely more dominant. The carbonation here is light, but persistent, it provides a bit of a prickly texture, but the body is on the medium side with a creamy over all texture. There is a soft malt character here that adds a sweet, whole grain cracker character, and a bit of sun toasted hay.
The dense honey flavors and aromas here is quite interesting, but it is not enough for this to be a stellar beer. This is definitely an interesting character from the Brettanomyces though, and a bit on the unique side.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Un liquide ambré lumineux avec peu de rétention de mousse. Le nez fait peur, les tomates pointent dangereusement et gâche la première impression. En bouche c’est rondelet et minéral avec une base de biscuit miellé et de caramel asséché. C’est malheureusement à côté de la track.
