joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
750 ml. bottle. It pours a lightly hazy orange color with a nice white head. The aroma is kind of odd for a brett beer. Toasted maltiness with some hints of caramel and dried fruit. Maybe some distant hints of wet hay, but nothing that would lead me to believe this has brett. The flavor is pleasant enough with more dried fruitÖ mostly aprictots, golden raisins and maybe pineapple. It has some sweetness to it and more body that would be expected. Spicy yeast and high carbonation. The finish has some mild hay-like funk with more sugar and sweet fruit. Not a bad sipper, but a little too sweet and heavy. Itís kind of like an American-ized Tripel that didnít dry out enough.

HMOG 2014. This was a very nice triple with the Brett addition. Light effervescent fruity, medium high dry, brett, apples, apricot.

HMOG 2014. Sorry for limited review. Notes are pretty sparse. Dry Fruity Tripel. Bottle - Shared at HMOG 2014

1 pint 9 oz. bottle from J&K Liquor. This beer is an interesting shade. I swear itís almost got a pink or plum tint to it, but Iím not all that great with the crazy off colors. Itís basically orange/red and very cloudy. A tall white head forms. The aroma hits me first with blunt notes like brewerís yeast pills. Brief decanting lets more nuanced notes come out with a very floral backbone and hints at cheese and bold cloves. The palate is pretty soft which works well here. The pros: mild, but established Brett funk, floral hints, especially in the finish; and a velvety palate. The cons, and none of these are really bad: The clove character is rather aggressive, the aroma could develop more and the malty, sweeter flavors could be dialed back just a bit. Pretty solid beer, but not necessarily special event type stuff.

Great, well-balanced session Belgian ale with bretta. Nicely balanced, and the kind of beer Iíd drink all the time if I could find it around for cheap. If only the budweisers of the world would disappear and allow to drink stuff like this as a default. Man. Anyway, bretta doesnít pop up till finish and thereís a nice underpinning of floral hops here. Tap at Rustico.

Tap. At a tasting event. Light copper pour with a lot of white head. White spice, nuts, bread, hop. A bit sweet.

I have had limited experience with this brewer, always assuming they were yet another over-hyped, over-priced brewery for me to scroll past - however, since their beers have been on sale at a store I frequent, I have decided to try a couple more recently - the saison was pretty meh - this beer, however, is downright awful, so I guess my initial opinion is confirmed - the beer looks okay - hazy amber, with a fluffy, well-sustained head - nose is syrupy sweet, slightly boozy, with notes of glazed doughnut, yeastiness, baby food, moldy fruit - poorly attenuated - very sweet flavor - thick, sludgy yeast mouthfeel - chalk, moldy peaches, cheese rind - bubblegum and grain husks - clumsy, with mildewy basement character throughout - finish is incredibly hot and boozy for something that is supposedly 7% (it actually burns) - pretty terrible - looks like Iím done with this brewery.

onceblind (3672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Mostly clear dark gold with a thin white foamy cap. Nose is estery with dusty apricot and crafty stinky cheese. Flavor is wonderful with notes of coriander and apricot, a little dusty Belgian yeast, and a clean off-dry light fruity finish, of a Belgian variety. Very smooth and delightful.

boxofrane (1872) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Draft at railroad street. Pours clear copper with a small white head that dissipates quickly to a film. The aroma is fairly funky, peppery, yeasty. The taste is dry, sweet, caramel, fruitiness kicks in late, a bit funky.
