Pours a golden, clear with 1/2 finger head that quickly dissipates mild/moderate lacing. Aroma of raspberry, honey, bread and hint of toasted malt. Floral hop notes. Mildly sweet and moderately tart. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Medium finish. Clean on the palate. This is a good one.

Still yet another 750 ml bottle Got at Binny’s during my Chicago Black Friday trip. Cloudy gold /orange in color with thin head. Smells of spent grain, light fruit and light yeast.

Flavor is a good amount chewy yeast with hints of fruit upfront. Light esters banana, bubblegum and weak citrus hints. I don’t pick out much in the way of the Brett yeast character but it still has some nice flavors. Lighter body with a higher then desirable carbonation level. The chewy yeast doesn’t really come out in the body as much as the first half of the snifter indicated to me. The Brett is subdued.

@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. Une bière jaune orangée avec une mousse épaisse et solide. Un nez de brett avec du grain. La bouche me rappelle le seigle, elle est acide. Une finale agréable sur les bretts.

At Ale Arsenal. Spicy, funky nose with wheat malt backing. Hazy orange with white head leaving a collar. Taste is barn like and chewy yeast. Slight orange. Dry finish. Moderate spritzy aspects on finish.

11/2/14. 750mL bottle from Chan’s in Sandestin area. This isn’t listed as sour/wild ale? CLevar would be so proud. 😢 Anyway... into a teku. Lightly hazed orange pour with a ginormous, thick, fluffy, creamy khaki head that completely coats the glass with lacing. Brett aroma all over, fruity, grapefruit, a little musty, some cardboardy and malty aspects. Better flavor, much better, Brett all over, grapefruit, fruity, a touch of chalky smarties, a bit of malt sweetness, lingers dry and chalky. Tasty!

Bottle. Pours a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of light fruit, light grains and a bit belgian yeast and a touch of spice. Flavor is pretty much hay and grain backed by light spice and a hint of Belgian yeast.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Poured an orangeish-gold. Flowery taste, definitely a bit of a funk to it as well, but not overpowering. Light, fruity. Definitely big on the flower feel to it, IMO. Really a nice beer, glad I got it.
