jstraw (1946) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Clear, darker orange with frothy white head / Light nose of resin, orchard fruit, citrus, cream, brett / Light to medium body, steely & resinous, smooth, creamy, some syrupy sweetness but nicely balanced, with lightly bitter finish / Very smooth, lactic flavors of resin, straw, clover honey, violet, orange peel, pineapple, cream, chrysanthemum, horse blanket / It sneaks up on you, and what a beauty. One of those you can drink another bottle.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2013 Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a straw-like pale color with a white head. Nose has a strong grain quality and vanilla ester. Brett isn’t really noted. Toast and clean. Lemon and cut grass. On tasting, low cloves and plastic. Quite bitter with a pithy note. Toasty malt and pils sweetness. Clean overall but missed the dynamic side. Good beer overall.

radagast83 (5809) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a slightly hazy golden amber color with a very large white head - once it settled down, I took a crack at it. Aroma was some spicy funk character, light malts, mild sweetness. Flavor had some spice funk character, grain. Pretty refreshing.

BOLTZ7555 (2979) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2013
14 karat pour with a small ivory head that left a spot or two inside the glass. Bready, malty, sugary with honey-baked biscuit, caramel, citrus preserves, and even vanilla present. Touch of dark fruit. Was looking for the Brett but had a hard time finding it. Perhaps needed more time in the bottle to develop complexity.

A touch sticky, pear and dough with a bit of toastiness. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a bit spicy and dusty, some cobwebs, funk, gentle pineapple. Gentle spiciness, yeasty feel grows firmly into the middle and backend. A touch of sweeter dough, honeycomb, apple and pear. A bit more spicy, bretty and dry as we round up.
