Pours a deep copper/honey color with a thin white head. Smells of spices, sweet fruits, a bit of yeast, and a grainy rye herbal quality that givds this a very distinctive aroma. The flavor of spices is very pronounced but is also very sweet with some very peculiar flavors. Tastes very similar to something else I’ve had.

Dark Cloudy golden pour. Full white head. Nose is sour brett and pit fruit. Toasty malts, bitter sweet fruits. Prominent rye pepperiness. Super dry finish. Very nice.

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

750 ml from Chuck’s @ $13.59. Smells like alcohol and musty attic crawl spaces. Be sure to pour this careful into a round bottom glass. Attempting to pour into a mason jar resulted in crazy foam. Taste is slightly estery and just this side of tart. Very tasty but I was hoping it was tarter.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2008
The color was cloudy and brassy with orange hues. The head was fizzy, frothy, and off-white. The aroma was pumpkin, spice, and an acidic tartness. The flavor was dry, pumpkin, spice, and waxy. The palate was well carbonated. The finish was warm and spicy.
