3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper body, white head. Aroma has some sour Smoked malts and berries. Really woody flavour. Quite like sawdust. Grainy caramel which is strange. Smoke / tar and alcohol, very much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. BB 16/12/14. (Alko) Helsinki, Finland.
Clear bright amber colour with a tiny off-white head.
Lots of sweetness in the aroma. Candy, sugar and liqueur sweetness.
The flavour is very strong. Hops, biting bitterness (not necessarily hops), yeast and lots of sweetness in the flavour. Hmm... this is not very tasty. Very sweet. Alcohol is also quite evident.

Bottle from whole foods. Pours a red amber with a lot of head. Aroma is citrus and funk from Brett. Mostly dank grapefruit. Taste is slightly tart and hop bitter. Sweet. Bright mouthfeel. Very drinkable for its strength.

Dark honey color with two fingers head. Aroma of white wine, citrus, passion fruit, brown sugar, peach, orange zest, caramel, rape bananas. Taste is light sweet, a bit sour, light bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Interesting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Massive pillowy tan head on top of clean copper brew. Aroma has an acetic note with a hint of earthy hop and some Brett funk. This sat for a bit over a year. The flavor is interesting and complex. Flowery hop at first followed by a bit of bread. This has gotten really "Bretty" but avoids the horse blanket effect. A bit tart and fruity on the finish. Like it a lot

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours an amber-orange with a very thick, fluffy white head. Lacing good. Aroma of floral notes, leather, earth, and yeasts. Taste of brett, leather, flowers, earth, grass and balanced malts. Bitter, sour, dry finish but well done.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml served in a Duvel Tulip.
A - Pours a clear and beautiful orange amber with a giant 3 finger rocky head that forms cavernous mountains of foam. Incredible 3/4 inch 3D lacing.
S - Strong barnyard funk, horse blanket, dry hay, dusty grain, lemongrass, honey, lavender, old leather, musty wood.
T - Sweet malt with some grassy grain, green apple skins, powdery yeast, honey, pears, lavender. Minty herbal hops and muted orange citrus come out on the finish.
M - Ultra smooth carbonation, medium body, dry finish.
Wow! One of the funkiest aromas Iíve ever come across from a beer. The taste followed the nose only way less funk. The funk almost rounds out the flavors. Very good especially if you like funky brews. I enjoyed this one with some aged cranberry white cheddar.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg @ Port st beer house Mcr. very similar to Orval but without the complexity of mouthfeel and unique carbonation. There are citrus notes, brett (obviously) and loads of hops. Lacked the soapy hay barnyard zest of Orval. A good attempt at a clone.
