4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12.7 oz corked and caged bottle. Aroma is strong in dusty brett, a little funk and lemon rind, but mostly dust. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a giant (even with a slow pour) white head with excellent retention; leaves some sudsy lacework. Taste is crisp and clean, mostly sweet and finishing dry with a lingering unobtrusive sweetness; some very light bitterness comes out after it warms a bit. Highly carbonated, fairly light body. Good beer, not very complex or overpowering like a lot of these brett-infused beers. Simple, clean and elegant.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Cork came off with nary a pop. Sad feels. Yep, the pour reveals very, very poor head formation. No real head at all, really, just some meager, gray bubbles that surface & vanish in just a few moments. Oily looking beer; fuzzy, opaque, & dense peach in color. Aroma is full of ripe orange flesh, pineapple, brettanomyces, mild barnyard hay, cork, Bazooka Joe bubblegum, wheat, & a touch of lemon-lime. Taste is a little less sweet, more earthy-bitter with noticeable hops, florals, & some heavy spice from the Belgian yeast. Brett in the form of damp hay, light barnyard floor, & musty cotton. Small bit of orange & lemon zest in the finish with more Belgian yeast esters, faint clove, & gum. Mouth feel is slightly oily & also disappointing thanks to the apparently lack of carbonation. Some snap would do this one well. Not a bad beer, but I feel like this had so much more potential. Dammit Tomme.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the tap into a tasting glass.
The color is a cloudy orange with a brownish tint with a finger of foamy white head and some lacing.
The smell is pretty bretty, some barnyard type flavor that is mixed with a bit of green apple and a little bit of honey as well with the constant touch of funk.
The taste is less funky then expected but does have a smooth mellow barnyard flavor. Some fruit flavor is mixed into the sourness with some green apple and a little pear. There is also some spicy flavor that is pleasant and not overpowering.
The feel of this beer is medium bodied and goes down with a nice drinkable feel. It is slightly refreshing and holds a funky character that stays throughout.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
faint golden, with a thick head. Quite earthy, funky aroma, faint hints of freshly cut field and apples. Very dry on the tongue, high acidity. Body is light to medium, texture is slick, lively almost fizzy carbonation. Also quite zesty. Brett character is obvious but very balanced. This is quite the beer! Awesome stuff from Lost Abbey yet again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wine-like saison, with a taste of tardy fruit, dry hops and the warm depth that a barrel aged beer on something like port often has. Complex and diverse, quite good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Hazy yellow to golden color, medium white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, bit citrus, some coriander, grassy hop, bit grainy malt. Just the slightest funky note, more peppery, and definitely not Brett character you would expect. Medium bitter in taste, slight sweetness, quite dry. Medium carbonation, low to medium bodied. Wonderful balance, and although the Brett character could be more pronounced imo, still a very likeable beer.

Fräsigt bryggeri men dessa sura saker är inte min kopp te alls. Men snygg öl för övrigt

Pour is transparent golden amber with a tight fluffy off white head. Nose is lime, green apple, and tropical fruit. Taste is fairly clean, strong lime with some tropical fruit notes. Brett presence is faint, slightly Cobb webby, with a hint of underlying grain. Carbonation is fairly strong, body is pretty light.
