3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Bottle] shared by Tyler. Thanks! Pours a clear gold with a moderate head. Aroma of light bretty funk, minerally crispness, green apple, light graininess. There’s a slight herbal character like mint and grass. Flavor is just slightly plastic, moderate brett, light fruitiness. The mouthfeel is perfect, not overcarbonated, bone dry but not thin. I think this one is just a little old and the brett is starting to do strange things like the plastic. Drink it now if you got it.

Pale, cloudy, straw-yellow color. Medium head. Some citrus, caramel, and bread aromas. Crisp & refreshing. Some wheat & fruity flavors. Nice palate. Very nice balance of sweetness & bitterness. Tasty, bitter aftertaste.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy straw yellow with a billowy white head. Aromas of lemon zest and coriander. A little bit of sour fruit on the nose. Just a beautiful smelling beer. Reminds me of a lazy summer afternoon.
Taste is light, fruity, with a pinch of spice.
Overall, such an easy to drink, enjoyable beer. Very approachable. Delicious

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2011 A - pale blonde pour with very light head, and nice lacing.
S - Belgian yeast, and floral notes. Pervading strong honeysuckle aroma
M- light body, though lightly syrupy. Lively carbonation. NIce nose and tail, but has a strange flat middle.
T - floral notes and subtle belgian yeasts but as with the aroma taste is a overly strong honeysuckle taste throughout.. Subtle Belgian strain.
O - pretty good light Belgian beer, but the nose is lost in the flat middle, then goes to a nice subtle end. Honeysuckle is simply too strong.

Can’t recall who shared this with me, but thanks! Hazy gold/pale body with a large pillowy white head. Dusty hay and cobwebby nose with a dose of horseblanket for good measure, some doughy malts and a touch of herbal/floral hops round it out. Flavor is fairly dry, just lightly bitter, a touch of tartness, a bit of hay and light honey at first, finishes with flowers and pepper. Medium body is round with moderate carbonation. Awesome.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours turbid morning urine yellow with 1-finger white head and well-retained lacing. Nose is floral, spicy, hoppy, with finky pale malt. Tastes dry, floral, spicy, with a high effervescence that is champagny. Some funk and earthiness in the finish. Comes off like a dry white wine/champagne hybrid with more funk, and is excellent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light tart pineapple brett initially on the nose. Fairly mild funk (a bit of feet sweat, aged cheese). A decent pilsner malt base. For being 4.5 yrs old there is little to no oxidization. A touch of hay and straw, maybe some lemongrass as well. Some mild plastic phenols noted as well. The tartness of the brett develops as the beer warms, but never becomes overpowering. Definitely wisps of Orval (at least aroma-wise). Pours a brilliant, glowing gold with a quickly diminishing bright white head. Absolutely bone dry on the tongue. Just the teensiest, tiniest bit of oxidized notes on the palate. I have a feeling this beer was stellar about a year or so ago. Flavor lacks the intensity of the nose. Pale malt, some drying brett, leafy earthiness (hay pile) are about all that’s left. Excellent texture and conditioning. Attenuated to the nth degree as there is zero residual sugars left. Lively carbonation, full bodied considering the style all leading to a bone dry (and slightly soapy/chalky) finish. Delicious, but I see it as being a bit past its prime. Oh well… still a treat to try this rarity. Thanks Mike!

Pours a very hazy golden yellow with light, frothy white head. Aroma is a mix of caramel, pepper, coriander and orange. Flavor is a mix of bread, yeast, coriander, floral notes and hay. Body is medium with quite a bit of carbonation.
