Bottle at the brewpub. Orange pour with a small spotty white head. Light Brett and sour on the nose, maybe a little rye spice. Light. Lower carbonation - smooth palate and light on the tongue. Slight dryness on the finish.

haukur (1204) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 11, 2013
Another spectacular beer from what is becoming my favorite brewery in the world. Aroma is farmhouse, rye, funk, leather. Very full bodied but still refreshing. Perfect carbonation, very balanced, awesome brew and I dont even like rye!

750ml bottle, shared with my sister. Thank you greatly to the kind local ratebeerian that gave this to me at Natifest ’13, it’s about time that I try this Bruery classic. Hazy orange golden color. Thin white head. Good spread of lace. Medium to bigger body. Very soft, kind of stronger carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Lightly creamy. Texture is nice, but stronger carbonation makes it a bit harder to drink, at first. Very nice to enjoy with my sandwich, though. Caramel malt, belgian yeast, and light spice in the nose. Brett provides a nice orange-grapefruit funk to the finish. Lightly tingly, spicy rye note works well with it. Light tart taste, moderate sweet, light spice, light bitter. As expected, this got way more enjoyable as it sat for a while and warmed up a bit, and the carbonation was allowed to die down. Solid, creative beer. More pronounced belgian candy sugar, but brett and rye provide for an enjoyable twist.

alobar (2623) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Pours a cloudy orange color with a creamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, Belgian yeast, and barnyard funk. Decent lacing and carbonation. Flavor of rye, pineapple, Belgian yeast, clove, and a touch of Brett sour. Very nice beer!

At Ravinia Music Festival and poured from bomber. Shared with the wine crowd and got very interesting reactions. "This is beer?" The aroma, appearance, and taste excellent.

radagast83 (4134) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Poured a slightly orange/amber color with a pretty decently sized white head. Aroma was some nice floral notes, with a touch of spice. Flavor had a nice light citrus character, with flowers and some spice. Frothy, well carbonated, the bubbles danced around my mouth as this was being consumed.

Concealer (650) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Bomber. Pours a golden copper color with a creamy white head. Aromas of apple, spice, rye, and some yeast. Flavor is caramel, fruit, spice, and light rye. Mediumed bodied, light dry finish. There is just a hint of alcohol here too.

MrHangover (2146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden blonde beer with a big white, frothy head on top that stays on for a very long time. Aroma is very floral, funky, fruity and yeasty. Flavour is quite sweet, fruity with fresh sour apples in it. Aftertaste has some bitter in there. Mouthfeel is well carbonated throughout the entire drinking experience. Very nice.

shoulderbroken (1723) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle at Gainsbar. My first Bruery beer. Orange amber colour, small white head. Aroma is weird, boozy, herbal fruity. Taste is cloves, booze, bit spicy, fruit again. Bit full on for a saison. Nice but too tough going for a saison in my opinion. And too much clove for me.
