3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Hi Time. Pours lightly hazy gold with a creamy 3 finger white head that collapses in dimples. Aroma of spicey cooked light fruits. Flavor is reminiscent of absinthe/wormwood, but thatís a long ago memory, so I could be off. Itís astringent. Itís woody. There are uncommon spices and maybe some bergamot. Grabs the attention, and itís very refreshing.

Then aroma has spices, malt, sugar, yeast, and a touch of paper. The appearance is pale gold with a nice fluffy head. The taste is like the aroma with an herb bread taste up from and a dry hoppy finish. The palate is smooth. Overall this is interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted at the Triple Rock Sour and Barrel Aged Fest on 2/13/2011. This spiced ale pours a light straw gold color from the bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is floral, fruit and sweet. A medium to light bodied spiced ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, touch of citrus. Hops are herbal and spicy. Nice carbonation. Light and refreshing. Interesting spicing, kind of barnyard and must, herbal and earthy. Nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean, smooth and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Quite the oddity. Served in a snifter with a gorgeous bright, hazy orange body leaving quite the sheety lace. Beautiful. Aroma is all Brett, candied ginger, hay, farmhouse, fresh lemon, fresh dough. Body has been drained of sugars and left with earthy spice, driftwood, barn, ginger, spritzy lemon. Dry palate. Powerful carbonation. Amazing. I could drink this all day. Probably the closest to an Orval clone Iíve tried. It doesnít look like this was meant to be Brett infected, but damn, they should keep it this way. An unintended masterpiece?
