WOW thats a hell of a description. Growler, pours a golden copper body with a white head. Tangerines, and citrus with some lighter floral hop tones, bread a hint of brett if you ask me with a faint finish of hop oils. Very palatable, nice.

A: The pour is a dark gold color with some highlights of orange. Atop sits a fluffy white head which leaves some very nice lacing.
S: The aroma is all American hop varieties. This beer was supposedly brewed with Brett, but I really don’t pick it up. This one is dominated by the citrus.
T: The flavor is much the same as the nose. This, like Humulus Lager, displays very little "Belgian" character. The citrus component is very up front and is present throughout the sip. The finish is a bit dry and has a decent amount of bitterness to it.
M: The beer is very well carbonated and the body is medium.
D: This is a great session pale ale. A nice hoppiness and a low ABV make this beer something that you could easily drink a lot of on a lazy weekend.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to GregoryG for this growler from our trade. Pours dark yellow color with an off-white head. Nose is strange: brett meets pale ale. Some of the pale ale standards are there, but there stands a bretty, funky, vague presence, too. Flavor is light pale ale with a boulder rolling down the hill: it starts out as malt, slight hops, and some funk then the boulder shows up and there is a strange funk, earthiness, and some some citrus. Finishes with brett and malt. Interesting, but not my pint of beer. I can see Patrick write more about it than I can.

Draft at The Bruery Reserve Society Initiation party. Very hoppy, but very little malt backbone. Thin, light body. Like hop water mostly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Bruery Reserve Society Initiation. Belgian ale? I thought it was a pale ale. Clear golden in color with a little white foam on top. Aroma is fresh hops - citrus and floral - with some earthy notes, grain, and bready malt. Flavor is pale and caramel malt, maybe some Munich, not very sweet, with fresh citrusy and earthy hops and a little yeastiness, but not really much brett detectable. Dry, crisp, and somewhat light on the palate. A solid session beer overall.

That is a very very very large commercial description. Tap at bruery reserve society party. Pours orange with a tan head. Nose has some nice light hops. Taste is sweet, overall pretty nice hoppy beer from a Brewery not none for their hops.
