peteinSD (1414) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Bright and hazy golden pour with a nice white head. Aroma is clove, slight banana, dry wheat, and the slightest bit of brett into the finish. Taste is clove, banana, and light, minimal brett on the finish. This is a hefe (or maybe an over the top with clove saison) with a tickle of brett on the finish. Nice enough but nowhere near a sour/wild ale.

Nuffield (3718) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Hazy yellow with moderate white head. A titch of sweetness and some spice/fruit notes like it was a hefe or a triple--and it drank like a hefe--but the Brett influence was very subdued and offered very little in the way of sour/funk. That was disappointing. (on tap at the Happy Gnome, St. Paul, MN)

At this point itís really a golden ale, the brett hasnít taken hold yet, but itís a tasty golden belgian. Light and well carbonated from the bottle, it pours colden and has a light sweet flavor. Very drinkable and a good dinner beer.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Draft at Caponeís with Bobby. Pours a hazy orange with a minimal head. Aroma is musty, not very funky. Taste is very light, sprtizy, and has a little fruitiness that i canít put my finger on. Kind of reminds me of an Orval. Would love to have a bottle to hold on to for a few years to see how the brett goes.

jgb9348 (4893) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Super hazy golden coloured body with a bit of an orange and slight amber glow and a thin, one centimetre tall white head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed, corn, curacao and a bit of light caster sugar. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast and hay/grassy flavours with a lot of effervescence at first then fading to an almost creamy, grassy and herbal flavour and a bit of nice sweet complexity on the back end. Aftertaste has some corn tastes, a bit of curacao and full oranges, some lemons, a bunch of yeast and a little coriander seed freshness. Overall, a decent beer bordering more on a biere de garde more than anything else, but not amazing, and not as good as I was even expecting. I sampled this 37.5 cL split bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 22-July-2012 for US$8.25 sampled at home in Washington on 19-October-2012, with this bottle made on 24-May (perhaps, itís tough to read).

Bottle. Hazy orange pour, big white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of creamsicle, very light brett, pineapple, lemon. Taste is creamsicle, lemon, honey. Palate is dry, soft, clean finish. Not much brett, but nicely balanced.
