3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taster at the brewery. Pale gold. Very little aroma. Hops upfront with the Brett in the background. Bitter ending. Overall a decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Traditional Belgian notes. A golden pour a nice white head. A fair amount of fruit a touch juicy a bit thin on the palate but enjoyable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Eulogy. Very hazy orange amber pour with an overflowing frothy white head. Lots of lace. Line could have been tainted. Starts as a yeasty bready wheat beer but quickly shifts to darker malty notes then shocks with a sharp sourish ascetic finish. Again - could be this particular pour on a tainted line. Feels substantial but not pleasant. Promised sugary notes are drowned in nail polish remover. Horrible. But this is certainly a bad pour.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 mL bottle poured into a tulip. The aroma is a funky, potent fruit and butterscotch. It pours a dull, murky copper orange / light caramel color. It’s topped by a big, stable and creamy off-white head. Lots of this creamy head retains, and it leaves a good amount of puffy clouds on the side of the glass. It’s highly sweet, lightly bitter, and has a moderate high sour kick to it. The texture is waxy and slick with a light, soapy carbonation. The medium body finishes with notes of bitter and sour citrus. It has a bit of a cider touch to it too. The aftertaste lingers with sour, tart, dry citrus notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear golden pour with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. Typical farmhouse, yeast-driven aroma - fruity esters and spicy phenols. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. Well-balanced, bittersweet flavor – farmhouse fruitiness, spiciness and graininess. Short, crisp, clean finish - no lingering maltiness, spiciness or bitterness. Bottle provided by biggsbowler!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11 July 2014, bottle. Orange, faintly hazy, no bubbles. Nose is funky, sweet candy, slight tart. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Smarties candy, hints of oak, slightly tart. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden pour with a big white head. Aroma is sweet, funky, and slightly sour. Flavor is very similar. Not overwhelmingly funky. Pretty sweet considering what I was expecting. Very easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold pour, large head. Fairly sweet aroma, minimal brett. Fruity, yeast, honey, toffee, grape all detected, but minimal brett. Medium body. Good for an american belgian, pretty lousy for a sour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dusty orange color with almost a pinkish tint but not quite. Huge rocky and puffy white head. Aromas of white pepper and some sweaty brett. Tast is semi sweet, lightly bitter. Flavors of spice, some musty gym socks (but restrained), and lemon. Pretty sweet. Not at all what I like in a saison. Not tart at all, just a hint of funk. Like Orval but more sweet, less bitter and way less funky. So, yeah. Not very good. Finishes sugary and under attenuated. Shoulda dried this one out with a higher boost yeast profile and upped the hop level then spiked the bottle with brett. But what the h do I know, we are all going to be sucked into the vortex real soon anyway.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle. Great CO2, nice thick cream colored head. Beer is a golden orange. Aroma is almost cider like with malty perfume. The flavor is slight malty toffe, very very light caramel hints of red apple skin, white grapes, grape skin. Great session Brett beer.
