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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Barcade Philadelphia.
Appearance: The body is midlly hazy with an amber hue, the head is short and dense forming a dense light tan coating.
Aroma: The aroma is abundant with juicy fruity and bubblegum aromas. The aroma is reminiscent of a pineapple and strawberry Chobani yogurt with bubblegum and hints of dry Brett. Itís lovely, one of the best beers Iíve smelled.
Taste: Very fruity from start to finish with a sweet, but mild, malt base. Lots of strawberry and pineapple throughout with bubblegum towards the end with some dry leathery Brett. The bubblegum lingers dryly for a bit.
Palate: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Wow, very juicy and enjoyable. Lots of flavors here, all playing off each other nicely. The Brett compliments this perfectly. Well done.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours quite hazy orange deep amber with a beautiful creamy large white lacing head. Aroma brings sweet Belgian yeast and some fruity orange notes. Flavors bring sweet malts followed by a bitterness blended with orange flavors as well. It is a nice juicy and dry balance that is refreshing.

Draft. Golden pour with white head. Light Brett and spices with some light yeast and wheat tones. Nice light funky Belgian.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazed copper orange color with a thick, small bubbled light tan head. Sweet floral aroma with a touch of alcohol. Notes of orange and lemon as well. Medium mouthfeel. I think this comes together nicer than what some of the scores represent. Smooth, slightly sweet up front with the Belgian esters coming through. Orange and slight banana. Ends pretty cleanly. Would be nice to see this a little more Brett forward, maybe some age would bring out some additional notes.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark gold with an orange tint. Thin but adhesive head. This has a firm, creamy palate, and drinks quite easily. Iíd blindly put it in the saison vein, mostly just a smooth, vaguely fruity but lightly charactered beer. I donít get much outright yeast, frankly, but itís "wild" enough to seem right. Quite enjoyable. (#5557, 6/17/2014)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pours hazy orange gold with lacing white foam. The aroma is smooth and light sweet grains with a Belgian flair. The taste is rich farmhouse musty grains and wet hay funk. Nice bright red apple and light earthy berries linger in the background. Nothing groundbreaking but lots of Brett smoothed out well. Drying finish but never completely dries out, champagneish finish.
