3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a golden yellow, slightly hazy. light white pillow head. very funky with strong brett notes, subtle tropical fruits. very brett straight forward, well blended body allowing the brett to really shine. light tropical fruit, some malt in the back. slight booze in the finish.
mild to moderate carbonation. light feel. it’s a brett beer, very straight forward. no frills. good stuff, but 22oz’s a bit much after a while. Reviewed on: 07-02-2012

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz. bottle. Bright, hazed golden pour with a small head that ends up being ring around the glass. Aroma of corn husk, pale malts. I get lots of funk, grass, earth. Some fruit, some pineapple, mild dust. Flavor is surprisingly dull. Husk notes dominate. Some dusty pineapple. There’s no real subtlety or focus. Very apparent, pervasive sugar water flavor. This is just flabby. Well carbonated, smooth mouthfeel. Flavor just isn’t there. Disappointing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at HTB. Poured a hazy lemonade-color with a white head. Aroma is sweet corn, funk, bread, dough, spice, and a hint of banana. Taste is spicy yeast, light brett, fruit, corn, and bread. Light body with soft carbonation. Somewhat watered down and kind of simple, could really benefit from some more brett. NB let me down on this one, boring and forgettable.

On tap. I was expecting some funkiness or sourness. It really is just a sweet blonde ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 43°. Color is a hazy gold with very good carbonation and a rocky white head. Aroma is slightly sour with light fruit notes. It has a lighter medium body with a light crisp mouth feel. Flavor is light, there’s a hint of fruit leaning to banana then some bitterness. In the after taste there is a sourness with just a touch of funk. Overall its lacking, its just a bland, simple, weak brew.

Pours a pale and hazy yellow. Not much brett in the aroma and not much in the flavor either. And I don’t pick up much hops at all. A little bit of tropical fruit notes but pretty muted. Was expecting a lot more from this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the Small Peen tasting. Haxy golden. Only light funky brett. Gentle fruit. Had this right after 3 vintages of Dark Lord and it was a nice palate cleanser. Not enough hete to get overly excited.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Tim- thanks, Tim! Pours a hazy gold color with a big, frothy off-white head. Heavy lace in the glass. Aroma of funk, sweet and bready malts, straw, citrus, tropical fruits, and butter. Flavor of tropical fruits, sweet malts, sugar, funk, and bread. Medium-bodied, with a fruity, funky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. I get more from the Sorachi hops than from the brett. Not really tart at all. Decent and probably not rating better because of expectations.

Pours hazy gold with a great white head. Aroma caught funk and some fruit. Taste is pineapple and a faint funk in the finish. Smooth texture. Not too exciting.
