UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Bottle thanks to demmbonz! Pours crystal clear orange, large creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is Brett, a bit of nail polish, oak, vinous, hay, pepper. Flavor is light sweet but drying quickly, light funky, but with a bit of a medicinal quality rather than strong barnyard funk, light bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation.

Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours golden orange with an off-white head. The aroma has brett earth and horse blanket right6 off the bat. There is also pale malt and husky graininess. It has a medium grainy body with soft carbonation. The flavor begins with fruit, funk, bugs, paper, dryness and stone fruits. The finish is very husky and dry. I liked this one.

Iím not sure itís fair for me to rate this, it just isnít my style. That being said: Poured from 750ml bottle into a tall tulip glass. Hazy yellow-orange with thic white head. Strong, funky sour/ barnyard scent. Pretty complex taste with some bitter hop and tart vinegar taste, also a little malty sweetness to balance it out (but not too much). Overall, a really interesting beer. I just kind of donít get it.

750ml capped bottle shared by Brandon. We want to like this beer, its got a good heart. However, its just the perfect example of improperly handled Brett. Its goats oil, too herbally. Its all that is, I mean its good for poor Brett.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - lightly hazy light orange - soapy lace - musty, lightly funky, lightly musky nose, with light notes of gingerbread, crackery malt, mildly tropical.Brett character (mango, pineapple), some herbal hops - flavor has some barnyard funk phenolics up front - this is followed by moderately tart acidity, some white grape skin - fairly dry, with some grassy, herbal bitterness on the tail end, with lingering musty funk - the finish is particularly brash, acidic, and unrefined, with a strong, woody, lingering bitterness - the finish particularly diminshes the experience, but there are some decent attributes.

Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Jake. Cloudy orange pour with a small white head. Sour apple, candied lemon, peaches, and a touch of honey. Nice oak, subtle grass, and a light leathery funk. Tastes of sweet tarts, peach, and lemon zest. Lots of peach, oak, and a moderate earthy funk. Light leather, yeast, and subtle honey sweetness. Pretty good.

>> Thanks Jake! Pours a full haze orange gold, larger Brett driven head. Nose is sugar cube, cantaloupe, Brett phenols. Taste is aerated, hints of sweet base beer, minerally...essentially a Brett spiked golden ale to become a sort of saison. I dig.
