750 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville, opened 12/26/13. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized creamy brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of wood, caramel, bread and very mild vinous notes. The taste is buttery, bready malts, wood, spice, banana, peach and other stone fruits. Medium-full bodied, low carbonation, slight heat, very smooth. Nice beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, opened Christmas Eve. Light brown with a slight beige head. Tart flanders brown aroma to it, some oak, dry, fruit, moderate body and carbonation, booze is well hidden but everything didn’t seem to go well together - curious if the brett had too much time to go to work as it seemed overly tart considering what the bottle seemed to be going for.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aged maybe 2-3 years. Murky darker copper under a foamy beige head. Nose is raisiny and musty, in a good way, with a touch of Bretty sour oak. Very complex and lovely nose. Flavor is mellow and slightly sour, with earthy cherry and date notes. Dry finish with some plantain/date flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle for Thanksgiving eve 2013. $10.99 price tag -- those were the days!
Dark pours, moderate head. Aroma is almost Flemish red in character, slightly sour with cherry. Abundant spice, some oak. The beer itself is quite sweet with only the faintest hints of the sour flavor on the aroma. Oak, savory mushroom, spices plentiful but not gimmicky in the least. At three years of age it seems to be in its prime with almost no hint of the 10% ABV. Very nice Belgian style, on the sweet side, made interesting by a complex ingredient list -- exactly as expected from the Bruery.
