There is so much going on in this beer! The flavor profile is extremely complex. There is apple, grapefruit, a hint of a Rose wine, some barrel is slightly in the taste. There is a earthiness to it as well, some sourness from the lacto. Overall wonderful beer. Wish I had another to enjoy later.

Sampled at WtWBA 2013 in Brooklyn. Pours a light, hazy amber body with white lacing. Aroma is fruit and dust. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of light sour fruit, pepper, musk, yeast and malt.

Clear golden with a huge white head and lots of lacing. Aroma was dusty caramel, woody and ripe fruit. Flavors of caramel, sweet malts and tart fruit
OK, but glad I wasn’t drinking this myself.

750 ml bought in Wyoming. Pours a cloudy deep orange color with a large white head. A sweet nose of brett, sugars and fruit. The flavor is certainly at the core a big blonde ale, dusty Brett., apples, caramel, light vinous notes. Decent.

On tap at the Mayor. Orange red appearance with an off white head. Aroma of fruity esters, wood, alcohol, wild yeast and light spices. Similar flavor. Medium body with a smooth feel. Not bad but a little underwhelming.

Thanks, Jeff! Not quite up to the level of the 2011 version. Oily, vigorously carbonated pour with a mead-like color to it. Raucous head and a riot of things happening in the nose, hops slightly occluded by barrel and booze and loads of fruit. Mouthfeel is a bit slick and oily for sure, and the heat is a bit too detectable. Flavors are reasonably more complex than the nose promises, with the hops peeking out a bit and some nice tart notes to make an interesting topography beyond the wood and heat. Brett’s not very present at all, but still comes across as a pretty winning Belgian strong.

Thanks again, Peter. Nose is big tropical fruit, mainly pineapple. Lightly tart farmhouse and lemon zest behind a grassy aroma. Pour is burnt orange with a white head. Flavor is funky, lightly salty, a ton of wheat and grass with some grapefruit and lemon rind. Pretty cool and not what I expected. I didn’t get a whole lot of the wine barrel though. Nice brew.

Bottle Courtesy of Dak. Really enjoyed this much more then others it seams. It has a really funky earthy feel that is reminiscent of a rustic farmhouse ale. Some booze and sweetness but not overly so. I like it!
