Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is fruity, herbal and full of brett funk. Taste is fruity and dry for the most part but there was some slight residual sugar impressions. Some fresh wheat flavors throughout, too. Mouthfeel is juicy, carbonation a bit light. Really fun and easy to drink, I want more!

Aroma is of white wine, leathery brettanomyces, light caramel, farmhouse yeast and a very light buttery presence. Taste is mostly of brettanomyces and white wine along lemoney notes, some residual sugar, light caramel and yeasty notes. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation at first that quickly become a moderate carbonation. Winey mouthfeel. Dry, leathery finish. Tasty, refreshing and drinkable. Good balance. Nice pimped Belgian Ale!

Dogbrick (7839) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Batch #8. This brew pours a cloudy pale golden color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dank hops, yeast and citrus. Medium-bodied with a delicate floral hops character and flavors of citrus, earthy yeast and vinous oak. The finish is slightly funky with an oak and hops aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

MartinT (7779) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Coniferous brettanomyces builds floral and citrusy fireworks which can be witnessed while being hypnotized by an underlying oily, vanilla-rich oak.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the cloudy blond.
-The big, natural bubbles remain soft on the palate.
-The flavor profile is also peppery at times.
-The rusticity in this one is ably balanced with the oak. Both are nicely aromatic.

Bottle; from batch 8.
