3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a trappist glass. Pours clear pale golden with medium fluffy bright white head. Some small bubble lacing, light body, medium carbonation, and nice brett/yeast aroma. Taste is effervesent pale malt, spicy yeast, brett, slightly toward the end bitter hops, and slightly dry finish. I like this better than bitter XX, but not as well as westy blonde.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Absolutely not a fan of this. 10 karat pour with a nice ivory head. Musty, funky, cheese and pepper-filled brew. Funky, Brett, doughy. Spice and horse blanket. I know! Sounds delicious! Right up my alley...nope. Muddled, disjointed, and actually a bit offensive. Messy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden straw pour with large billowing bright white head. Smells and tastes of pure brett. With hint of lemon zest and fresh floral notes like chamomile. Hints of slight toe cheese. Palate produces the typical bretty dryness. I would have pegged this as a bretty saison. lingering grassy hop bite on the tail. Pretty damn good for the style, but I wouldn’t want it again.
