Sampled at the sunday after thanksgiving tasting 2013. Semi cloudy blonde gold pour with good white head. Reminded me of a bier de garde or bretty saison. The brett is there, but it is really prickly and hasn’t done much to actually ’sour’ the beer. Tropical fruitiness and large carbonation. Didn’t really do much for me. Maybe in a while this will be worth trying again.

Decent beer. Aroma was OK. The brett is very noticeable, giving off some nice funk and barnyard aroma. Pour was a nice cloudy light gold with a two finger white head. Taste was decent. Light fruit, berry and funk. Slightly tart, but not sour. Strong carbonation. Flavor could be a little more full. As it warmed more melon and berry came out. Very average.

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow color with an averaged sized head. Some fruitiness, lighter brett, and some berries. Nothing really making this one stand out at this point.
