Hazy blonde color, white head, long lasting. Fuller aroma and flavor of Belgian yeast, light hops, some citrus, only slightly tart. Medium bodied, light acidity. I’d like some more.

Bright gold, cloudy, low carbonation. Aroma was slightly sour but with mild sweet meadow accents. Flavours - sour with earthy character creates interesting effect. A bit rough here and there but on right track.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2011 Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a pale opaque yellow with a white head. Tart, salty Bretty nose - somewhat medicinal. Medium body, a subtle tartness but still you can feel the yeasty Belgian base beer underneath. Tartness grows as you dig into into this beer, still salty. Citrusy. Quite sessionable. 030711
(Bottle 65 cl) Hazy, pale golden with a very fine, creamy head. Sourish nose, fresh and citrusy. Quite light-bodied, sourness in the flavours also. Distinct Brett character - like a light version of Gueuze Very fresh and quenching. 6/3/7/4/14=3.4 170705

Bottle sampled @ RBSG 05’ (Montréal) Grand Tasting
Yellow gold, lots of white head and lacing. Nose of very earthy and citrusy yeast, almost infected. As I lazily uncaged this bottle the cork zoomed right in front of my noise with more than the usual "pop", it was almost a "boom". People in the back of the room were prairie-dogging with a "whoa" look on their face. The flavor is tart, lots of yeast, nice and complex. Something about american belgians, they all taste like a clean yeast blend from one of the american yeast makers. Not too many branch into their little unique bacteria world.

Originally I thought this was a saison. Gold cloudy pour. Aroma of wheat, yeast, honey and lemon. The flavour is very uniform with more yeasty lemon, bread, grass. Gassy. Some acidic fruit sugar in the very dry finish. Terrific.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Excellent lacing follows the slow fall of the large white head produced by this medium yellow brew.
Tart aroma comes from the glass.
The sourness in the flavor follows the aroma predictably. The light body is lemony sweet at the finish, but not quite my cup of tea with the sourness that precedes it.
