3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Lithy’s Septemberfest Tasting. Pours a clear pale straw with wispy clearish tan head. Nose is mildly tart, with a flintstones vitamins chalkiness. Very interesting. A lavendar potpourri bathroom flavor. Unlike any beer I’ve come across. But I don’t really like it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Big, bretty, horsey funk aroma. Mellow. Bitter, spritzy flavor, nice body, very horsey and dry in the mouth. Pretty enjoyable stuff. I want a bottle for myself rather than a sample.

500mL bottle.Clear golden with small white head, good retention. Lots of floral hops up front with pears and light dusty caramel, faint funk and leather. Flavor follows suit with some bitter earthy notes. Medium body with light to medium smooth carbonation. Very good beer--would like to revisit this in a year.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Smells similar to a one-year-old Orval - dry cobwebs and light funk. Light to medium-bodied and bone-dry with fizzy carbonation. Leans a touch on the sweet side of balance, pretty much like Orval at certain early stages in its potentially lengthy shelf life. Also, a touch peppery. Semi-sweet, grainy, dry finish. Bottle courtesy of motortoddhead!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Where the Wild Beers Are NYC 2009: Hazy golden with a wispy off white head. The aroma has that nice hoppy and bretty character with notes of leather, earthy hay like hop notes. Fluffy body with a nutty flavor. Earthy and rustic with some of that mild Brux brett funk (leathery). A nice attempt to an Orval-like beer.
