3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a deep bright golden color ale with a huge pure white foamy head with excellent retention and great lacing. Aroma of dry Brett notes with light funky notes is very enjoyable and refreshing. Taste is also dominated by some notes of dry flora notes with light Brett and funky ester with light rustic malt backbone. Light citric notes are also easily perceptible. Body is about average with great carbonation. Very enjoyable beer that is not overly dominated by Brett but still retain a great balance between drinkability and complexity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bomber pours a golden color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is funky with some fruit, earthy tones and yeast notes. Taste is an earthy hop bitterness with some fruity and malty sweetness and a dry yeasty finish. An interesting brew, but a little too funky for my tastes.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
650ml bottle - $9.49 at Mink’s Package Store in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a hazed, light straw-hued body with a lofty, foaming, white crown of suds. Meringue-like lacing.
Smell: A touch of hay-esque malts, a spritz of fresh lemon and lime, half of a pineapple ring, and some Brett notes. As some of the yeastier deposits from the bottle make their way into the glass from latter pours, it picks up a big, spicy, floral perfumy quality.
Taste: Light, mild-mannered pils malts, very low, sans-crust bready quality and just a hint of sweetness. Soft touch of lemon-lime citrus. A few drops of pineapple juice. Heck, maybe some green apple. Lightly bitter. Agreeable, leathery funk character. Coriander and fresh florals later on. A little bit of mineral and a rebound of oily, moist citrus on the staunchly dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Well carbonated for a nicely crisp mouthfeel.
Overall: It’s a little hay-like malts, some funk, and a appreciated citrus, until you’re brain is wrecked by the outstanding refreshment.

Bottle. Hazy almost fluorescent yellow, foamy white head. Really nice looking beer. Nose is lemon, spices, orange coriander, very mild funk. Taste is spices, orange coriander, bittering hops. Smooth mouthfeel transitions well into dry finish. Really solid beer, just don’t like the hints of orange coriander.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from 2012. A hazy straw pour with a thick and fluffy meringue-like off-white head that leaves chunks of lacing behind. The funky aroma features lots of lemons, oranges, melon, bananas, zesty citrus rinds, grass, white pepper, candi sugar, light caramel, and the cheesy/athlete’s foot encrusted socks smell of Brett. Goes down fairly thin with a high level of effervescence. Kinda creamy here and there. Sweet upfront taste-wise with some caramel, candi sugar, melon, and hints of bananas. A bitter finish with juicy lemons, orange rinds, and wheatgrass. A dash of pepper at the end. Yeasty, dusty, and funky throughout. Very drinkable. Interesting.
