Hazy light orange-yellow pour. A touch of clove and banana on the nose. Chalky bretty flavor. Very dry, bitter hoppy finish. Really easy drinking but I found the chalkiness a bit too much. Overall a nice drinkiable beer though.

3oz pour is a hazy gold with a creamy white head. Nose is mild, floral, lightly grassy. Flavor is sweet, bitter, grassy, lemons. You could drink a million of these. Medium bodied, smooth and super drinkable.

Tap at Max’s. Pours hazy gold with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is Brettanomyces, hay and straw malt, citrus hops and earthy notes. Flavor is malt dominant with Brettanomyces, straw and hay malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth and carbonation.

Lemon zest and horseblanket aroma. Cloudy yellow, thin head. flavor is the same as the aroma, but magnified. Superior balance, perfect level of funk. Finishes with just the impression of blue vein cheese.

ryan (3187) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - FEB 18, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2012 Dusty hay and light pineapple nose with a touch of herbal hops. The taste is very dry, rather bitter and just lightly tart. Light pineapple, dirty dusty yeast, light hay, cobwebs and a touch of pear. Awesome stuff. If this ends up in cans, it will be epic.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of Brett, orange, coriander, and lemon. Poured yellow/gold in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Flavor is lightly tart, lightly sweet, and lightly bitter. Tastes of Brett, grains, hops, and corn. Light to medium body. Dry texture. Lively carbonation. Lightly sweet, lightly tart, Brett, hop, and grain finish is dry.

swoopjones (5329) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Draft at Trappist in Oakland, slightly cloudy straw color. Band aid bretty aroma. Solid bitterness, dry Brett funk, band aids. Lots of complexity and flavor for a 4.5 beer. Nice

GT2 (7851) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 11, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 Tap at The Trappist. Pours glowing lighter gold with a thicker white, pillowy head. Big webby lace. Nose is heavy honey, sweet orange, tea herbals, mild urea, similar phenolics like Lost Abbey saisons. Perhaps over spiced. Taste is vinegary, salty, overly carbonated, stinging. Muted grass and decent hoppiness. Not too Brett heavy. Quite neutral overall. Very minerally like Centrum multi vitamin. 2/11/2012 7/4/7/4/15=3.7

651mL. Pours glowing starfruit with a large, sheen, pillowy, white head. Brett heavy nose, herbal, grassy, honey, cantaloupe. Taste is mega quenching, richer doughy biscuit, herbal/lavender sharpness. Has some small creamed corn DMS character like Prohibition style American lager. Very light and overpowered by intense dry herbals. Super refreshing and quenching. Demanding enormous gulps. Summer quencher. Can drink a pitcher of this stuff. Excellent. 6/14/2012 7/4/8/5/15=3.9

Bottle pours pale cloudy yellow with a thick pillow of white foam resting on top. Aromas of lemon, grain, and Brett funk. Taste is lemon, apple, cereal, with Hoppiness on the finish. Body is light to medium with lively carbonation. Overall, a great session ale with Brett funkiness.
