COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pride is the excessive belief in one’s own abilities and achievements. PRIDE Belgian-style Strong Pale Ale is the smart, sexy, strong ’golden child’ of the series. Aged in chardonnay oak barrels and infused with Brettanomyces, Pride has much, much, too much to boast about. PRIDE...It really isn’t you...it’s ME.

Bottle... Poured golden orange with a thick white head. Bretty nose. Super dry some hoppiness with a short finish. A little bit of funk and wood-like tones. Some grapiness too.

Bottle, thx for sharing tarheels. Pours blonde with a tall fluffy head which leaves good lacing. Aroma is red wine, citrus, rose, and barnyard funk. Flavor is slightly sweet, tart, citrus, tropical fruit but a dry finish. Really nice.

22oz bottle, generously provided by tarheels86. Thanks, GT! Pours a murky, deep orange color; creamy, fine-bubbled off-white head with solid retention and lacing. some acetic character in the nose, along with bright citrus and some lightly funky brett in the nose; some light red wine notes. Medium to medium-full body; lively, fluffy carbonation. Some lightly tannic red wine notes, light aceitc and citric tartness, and a moderate strain of brett; fluffy, lightly tannic, and a nicely shown bret character. Lasting finish of brett and a pleasant red fruitiness; nicely dry.

651mL courtesy of savnac. Well holy god this one was good! The pour is a hazy, glowing, bright orange with a gargantuan ice cream head with infinite retention and stratospheres of lace. Aroma is Brett at its best: fresh citrus, fresh/sweet oranges, rose pedals, spicy oak, fruit caramel, fresh and earthy. Taste is fresh, zippy, dry with sweet fruits, tropicals, mango, caramel, rose, and potpourri. Really just unbelievable. I think the bottle was empty in about three minutes. Need more!

22oz Vintage 2008 Bottle Thanks to ditmier. Pours out a deep gold/orange topped with a off white cream head. Aroma was Brett, fruit, funk, and some citrus. Taste was Brett from start to finish along with some of the fruit showing up.

From a bomber. Pour is hazy orange with a large pillowy white head. Big funky aroma with brett and some tart lemon acidity present as well. Reminiscent of a gueuze in the aroma. Flavor starts of slightly spicy, with some earthiness and acidity that lead into dry finish. Seems a tad dusty in the finish, too. Thanks JW for this beer. Pretty damn good stuff.

Bomber shared with mattyb83. Pours a, deep golden orange with a medium sized fluffy white head. The brett presence on the nose is so large its almost overwhelming. Brett, lemon citrus, and barnyard funk comprise the aroma. A high amount of carbonation is present despite only the medium sized head. A lot of the dry, chardonnay notes come through in the taste. Yeast, lemon, spice, funk, and slightly acidic for a Belgian ale. Slight tartness on the finish. Overall a very nice belgian ale with a big brett funk.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - OCT 15, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #76. Clear bright orange with pretty much no head. Big brett aroma, dry and a bit tart. Slight brett in the finish, very drinkable and a bit dry, really nice. (1415)

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Brett-y yet quite fruity aroma: don’t know that I’ve ever had so much of the two in the same beer’s aroma. Elegant, slightly dusty flavor - like dusty dried apricots.

Thanks to my FL homie, Jw347, for this surprise in the last box he sent me. You the f’n man! Poured into Portsmouth tulip. A - Pours a dark yellow/orange, off-white creamy head, nice cap, lots of sticky lacing, and some chucks of goodness from the bottle of the bottle. Very nice looking beer. S - Wonderful brett aroma, some oak, melon sweetness (honeydew, cantaloupe). Lots of stuff going on here to meld together and create an awesome-smelling brew. T - Brett, slight funk/tart, melon sweetness, oak. Very saison-like, which is a good thing. Very solid. M - Light, crisp, refreshing, semi-dry finish. D - A wonderful offering from MS. I would love to have this one again and I think there’s room for more development in the bottle. Thanks again, JW, for this one. Highly recommend.
