From Paul. Hazy gold with white head. Musty nose. Horsey musty flavor, crisp and finishes clean. Rye isn’t my style but this works.

750 ml bottle. Pours a murky amber with huge head. Aromas of toasted malts, stoned fruit, and light banana. Flavors of orange marmalade, cloves,, white pepper, light resin and fruity bubblegum. Sharp and refreshing.

Bottle.slightly hazy light amber with large foamy off white head, sugary floral aroma, high carbonation, slightly sweet and spicy taste with a hint of cloves, medium finish with minimal bitterness at the end. Very nice beer for spring, I hope the spring comes soon!

John25 (680) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours bright orangey gold. The aroma is brett funk with a little citrus in the background. The taste follows suit with tangerine. The mouthfeel is the best part. A little spritzy, prickly but sweet and sticky too. High carb that fades fast to a sticky resin feel. Really great brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma is saison yeast and citrus with a hint of mint. Taste follows suit but adds some apple and refocuses on the citrus. Quick dry finish. Very good.

patricks110 (1758) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
I was expecting a darker pour with the rye malt but it pours a bright golden amber with a light fluffy white head. The nose is frutiy and funkalicious with big farmhouse notes, pepper and big bretty aromas. A bit reserved int he middle with lgiht toasted toffee and caramel bread notes and a hint of grassy hops works well with the light spices and the tons of farmy funk notes. didnt know this was so booozy until reveiwing it. They hid the 8.5 very well.

DSG (6332) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Hazy dark yellow. Aroma of fruits, some bretty funk and citric and floral spiciness. Sweetish flavor with faint tartness, fruits, malt, rye spiciness, mild funk and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. A bit too heavy, but not bad.

Pours a burnt golden color with a white head. Brett, yeast, clove and fruit aroma. Tart, fruit, yeast, clove and grain flavors. Light body and average carbonation. Fruit and tart finish.

njnut (272) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Poured at tasting. A hazy orange tinged amber. White head and lacing. Aroma is complex, hay, grass, lemon, grain. A little basement. The taste is bright and fresh. Malt, hay and grass. A small funk with the brettanomyces but not a heavy funk. It hit me more as tangy on the tounge in the finish. This will be great as the weather breaks, wonderfully refreshing.

hopwine (384) - Bend, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Light funk, moderate rye spice, way too much sweetness for the style. Mouthfeel is too hefty, and the rye spice seems out of place also. Hadn’t had this in years, and wouldn’t revisit again.
