3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy hazy apricot orange, creamy beige head. A legitimately wild aroma. Slightly moldy wet autumn leaves. Not since Saison de Pipaix have I found one that I thought smelled like it was made in a barn. Not strictly offensive but it manages to pique my curiosity to better learn all the different kinds of infections out there. Medium bodied, quite creamy texture. More on the sweet side, like jelly beans and meringue. I would prefer it to be less strong so it might be more drinkable. But really, itís quite interesting, although I canít say itís really hitting the spot for me.

Bottle. This was my Thanksgiving day beer. Pours unclear gold with a white head. Nice spicy aroma with a light sweetness. The flavor is spicy and fruity, with some lighter herbal notes and a cool funky hint at the end. Quite good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle poured a brown golden in color with a thick off white foamy head that stuck around for a while. aroma has yeast, wheat, nutmeg, rye, grass, and some herbs. light mouth feel with huge frothy carbonation. flavor hits right to the yeast, light acid, slight bitterness, grass, wet herbs, and spice. quite a wet herb cocktail thing countered with a dry brett funk.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with brown hues and a thick white head. The nose reminds me of a big bowl of Christmas mints, potpourri, and an herb garden. Tastes about the same, but softer. Still very bold though. I donít enjoy the flavor as much as the aroma. Full body with a lingering finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is cloudy orange with maybe a light hint of red and a medium white head. Aroma is funky, acidic, grassy, and lightly spicy. Flavor is peppery from the rye, ever so lightly funky, earthy, grassy, and light apple with a somewhat harsh yorkshire tea-like finish. Interesting, but not my favorite.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle. Pours a slighlty hazed orange brown with a sudsy slightly off-white airy frothy bubbly head brett helped head. Aroma of sweet juicy candied pineapple, strong brett notes, touch of meaty salami, light sour cream butter milk. Flavor follows, super juicy, very boozy but it works somehow, a bit tangy metallic but that also works somehow, lots of pineapple, guava, interestingly complex but seemingly clean, some yeastiness lingers underneath along with fresh French vanilla bean ice cream. Medium.light bodied, ever so slightly creamy, bright feeling ,boozy but nice, crisp popping carbonation. Love it, reminds me a bit of Hitachinoís Celebration.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Subtle for the style. Flavor is grassy, a little floral, a little tart with a bit of spice. Smooth palate, easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the Binnyís Beverage Depot in Orland Park, Illinois: This poured a hazy golden amber body with a tall off-white head that leaft some slippery lace in gulp-gapped rings. The aroma had a grassy bitterness, floral scents, a light malty sweetness, some citrus rind, and the slightest touch of funkiness. Very soft mouthfeel. The flavor had the addition of some peppery spiciness, a floral/citric bitterness, and a bit of fuzz. From all of the local hoopla about this beer, I expected something more complex. As it is, itís a refreshingly tasty, fairly straightforward brew that I wish would cost less.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ok, first off Iím not a huge fan of the style. I really do like their interpretation of it, though. Bottle pours somewhat cloudy golden color with thick white head that lasts during the drink. Aroma is spice and brett. Grass and biscuit seemed mixed in as well. Stingy mouthfeel from the carbonation. Flavor is smooth. Grass, white pepper, biscuit, mixed in with some barnyard and hay. All in a smooth way. This is a really good beer! Finishes dry and leaves me wanting another bottle. Good stuff.
