3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2011 Very murky honey gold orange, not much head... nose is awesome, what you imagine a barrel aged Orval would be, vinous brett with oak... To much brett on the taste, distracting, oak pine hop finish... Gets better as your drink it

750ml bottle shared at a tasting. Big thanks to Denis and/or Yowie.
Appearance : Hazy pale amber.
Aroma : Great brett with light tartness. Awesome nose.
Taste : Nice brett with a light bitterness. Nice brett on the finish. Finish rather spicy. Some yeasty esters.
Overall : Great beer. Nice nose (better than taste). Nice light tartness. No real trace of the wine barrel. Well balanced and quite drinkable. Delightful beer.
