750 ml bottle thanks to soonerchamps. Shared at Jeff’s. Pours a hazy light yellow color, not much head. Very musty aroma. Lemons, black pepper, white wine, light funk, and bread. Taste is very peppery and spicy with some white wine, tropical fruit, and lemons. Yeasty finish with some brett funk. Lots of flavor for one malt and one hop. Enjoyed this one.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Dennis, thanks!
Hazy light yellow, big frothy white head.
The aroma makes me smile; white wine/green grapes, yeast, lemon verbena, lime, slight hops and brett.
Taste is pretty much like the aroma but with a lot more brett, hops and peppery yeast.
After taste is peppery bitter and dry.

It’s ok. Reminds me of road coke in Ohio. Funky smell and taste. Leaves something to be desired. What’s next?

It poured a cloudy straw yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of hops, lime and other citrus with a touch of farmhouse funk. The taste was of lemon zest, funk and a bit of spiciness. Very nice.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a pale yellow and cloudy color. Medium thick head with solid retention. Funky aroma with yeast, tropical fruit and somewhat tart. Taste is yeasty bread with hints of grass and a slight hop bitterness. Palate is fizzy almost champagne - esque. Overall, an interesting beer. Not really my favorite style, still glad I gave it a shot.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Captivating aroma of dried flowers, herb, faintly peppery spice, estery yeast, some slight funk detected along with the lightly winey cast of the Nelson Sauvins and a faint hint of crackery, gently sweet malt. Thoroughly cloudy straw yellow in color with a foamy, lasting, white head and very nice lacing. Flavor profile is rife with Belgian yeast character from start to finish, showing plenty of fruity, spicy, peppery esters, funk and light phenols, with a light-moderate amount of bitterness, citrus and a wonderfully spritzy dryness for a beer of this strength. Effervescent and highly active palate, quite refreshing and lively with a medium body. Highly enjoyable. That this is a single malt and single hop beer is even more impressive.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. Upon undoing the cage the cork popped straight off under its own volition, startling my wife as it ricocheted around the room. Off to a good start, coming out with guns a blazin’. I’d say it gushed, but it was such a slow gush that it’s more appropriate to say it oozed foam. Pours a murky yellow with plentiful white head -- egg whites beaten until frothy but not yet holding any kind of a peak. Aroma: holy grapefruit. And bubble gum -- no, scratch that, not bubblegum, but rather grape. And onions. And pepper. And lemon. This smells great. Taste: Gah! Taste is ... chemical, aerosol, citrus floor cleaner? Like grapefruit juice mixed with hairspray and finished with a spritz of mouthwash. Not awesome. Peppery, lightly tart, dry but overwhelmingly unpleasant finish. Huge disappointment :(. Trying to power through, but this one is tough to finish. There may only be one dominant "off" flavor here, but that really ruins the rest of it for me. Should have stopped at the aroma I guess. Medium body, soft but prickly carbonation. Overall: 50% amazing, 50% gross. Judging by other reviews I’ve read, I may need to try this again, but doubt I’ll be buying another bottle myself to experiment.
