Pours a nice pale yellow with a big white frothy head. The aroma is brett, horse sweat, bready, and some fruit. The taste is much like the nose, lotís of bready brett character but no sour whatsoever. Very disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Aces and Ales, LV. Clear, light golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma has notes of earthy and fruity brett, cereal and earthy hops. A bit bland. Taste is dry and light bitter with some earthy brett. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Too little brett character to be called a brett beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Hazy gold pour with a medium white head.
aroma is sweet bready malt, light melon fruitiness and yeast.
Not getting a lot from the brett, though there is a light earthy edge there.
Flavour is biscuity malt up front. light earthy medicinal yeastiness through the middle. hints of tropical fruit and a somewhat dryish finish.
A bit underwhelming on the palate.

Worst Beer Ever? Not! This is a great summer ale with spectacular clarity, subtle hints of brett, and a perfect introduction to the farmhouse style. I am amazed that this beer is getting panned online and the Lost Abbey version is getting better ratings. At much higher cost for a smaller bottle, the Lost Abbey tastes nearly identical except that the New Belgium version actually has more perceivable malt backbone. A delicious slightly funky, fruit, brett, and hops bitterness on the finish. A VERY well balanced quaffable brew! Tasted from the bottle @ 60F.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber to chalice. Was really excited about this beer. But it fell pretty flat for me. Clear, light golden in color. Not much head, but nice bubbly carbonation. Didnít pick up much on the nose- some light fruitiness & yeast. Flavor wasnít outstanding, either- tasted more like a simple Belgian golden than something w/ a wild yeast. A bit disappointed, considering the 2 breweries involved.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy golden / orange with a white head. The aroma has some earthy brett, cream, mild toast, some nectar fruits and mild sweetness. It has a medium musky body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with mushy fruits, band aids, mild funk and heavy malt. The finish adds soured fruit (not in a pleasant way), sweet/tarts, plastic and a murkiness to the flavors. Okay beer, but expected much more from who was involved with it.

Draft at thirsty monk. Pours golden with a thin white head that leaves no lacing. Not much on the nose. Not much on the tongue either. Thereís a sweetness I didnít expect. I didnít get any sour notes at all. Finish is a bit watery. Itís a disappointment. Youíd expect these two to make something a hell of a lot better than this.

Tap @ the thirsty monk - pours a clear gold with a finger of white head. Aroma is faint and I canít place it. This reminds me more of a saison then a wild ale since I donít find it very sour. Overall, interesting.

Bottle. Rubber and light horseblanket and lemon/pineapple aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Mildly funky, very lightly sour wheat malt flavor. Okay - not really much to get excited about though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Musty sweet citrusy pineapple aroma, and something that reminds me .. I know... it sounds strange... but of hotdogs. Golden yellow with a large white head, nice lacing. Sweet musty/funky wheat malt flavor with a light spicy grassy edge. Creamy medium body.
