COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold floral bouquet sweeps forward, encouraged by the Maris Otter Malt. Ale and Brettanomyces promote complex Brett characters. Dry finish. Alive and still fermenting, this bottle will continue to build carbonation. Pour with care. Brewed 3-23-09. Bottled 6-18-09.

New Batch released in 2011, New Glarus is also considering putting it in six packs.

Pours a clear gold with fizzy white head. Aroma of tart, farmhouse funk. Similar taste, very floral and tart. Dry finish. Very unique and enjoyable

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
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.

puzzl (3235) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2009
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.

iowaherkeye (2686) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
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.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Dark yellow-orange. Soapy white head. Aroma is yeasty, spicy, grassy hops dominate. Taste is more spicy yeast, grassy, lightly bretty drying sourness in the finish.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Bottle at the Where the Wild Beers are event. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Clean acid and lemon. Thin, very bretty. Finishes dry and with some light brett and lemon.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2009
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!

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
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.
