I started off really liking this in the first couple sips but it became a bit nausiating after a while. Way too much brett character. Tastes like a hampster cage and flowers which you would think would deserve a lower rating but i liked the first few sips just couldnt handle much more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Opened with caution - enjoyed an R&D bottle with lunch today. Color on pour was great - a golden orange with a nice white head. The aroma was very wild - smelled of the fair/barnyard and lemon zest. Taste is hoppy and earthy with some wet hay flavor. Creamy and not very carbonated, it is not overly dry despite the hops flavor. A surprising beer, but tasty.

Sample from sherm1016 500 ml bottle...thanks. My second Brett beer tonight but completely different. Complex is a good word for this...flowery taste upfront with dry palate / feel at the end. Need more!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
barnyard story. Very funky aroma, barnyard on steroids. Significant foaming. Very much smooth soapy lace, and lots of soapy head. The taste is barnyard, socks, wet rag, detergent, straw, corn, peas. Smooth mouthfeel, though mildly acidic in finish. A dramatically different golden. FlandersNed.

Brewed 23 May 2009
Bottled 18 June 2009
A: Hazy, light orange color with a large bubbly head that leaves a thick coat of lacing on the glass.
S: A really terrific aroma with scents of Belgian yeast, funk, gueuze-like characteristics.
T: Nice brettanomyces character with some pleasant funk and spices in the mix as well. The beer smells better than it tastes, but I do really enjoy the flavor. The beer has a nice sourness, though it’s not super tart or puckering by any means.
M: Good feel, appropriate carbonation, alcohol hidden very well.
D: A really good brew. I would drink this anytime. Recommended.
I am really glad I got to try this one again. Previously, I had a 1 oz. sample at a tasting and really enjoyed it. I’ve been looking forward to enjoying a healthy pour of this beer ever since. Possibly my favorite offering from New Glarus.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy peach colored pour. Nose of tart wheat and bread, with the flavor bring more of that lemon acidity, grain, touches of stone fruit. Almost like a berliner weiss, but i’m not really impressed.
