Brewed predominantly with organic 2- row, the malt bill is rounded out with organic light munich, organic 60L crystal and caravienna. Northwest Golding and Hallertauer hops provide a pleasant hop character. Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

medium caramel amber body, lightly hazed.
lightly acetic nose; medium oak; dried cherry / cranberry esters.
brett plastic / band-aid.
medium-high acid; medium-low bitterness.
toasty / crunchy malt, but well-suited firm.
the acid seems to bury the huskiness apparent in the Avant Flandre.
minimal hop character.
quite good, balanced, subdued, measured.

theisti (3588) - Kansas, USA - NOV 12, 2015
750ml bottle purchased at Imperial Bottle Shop and Taproom in Portland, Oregon. Shared with csbosox and beastiefan2k. The pour is a murky golden copper with a 1/2 inch off white head. The aroma is tart citrus, lemon acidic, tangerine and some general funk towards the back. The taste is the bright tart lemon fruit up front, followed by the acidity and then moves into dry funk leather earthy Brett notes. Nice transition of flavors. The palate is medium bodied with active fine carbonation and the dry Brett finish. Thins out some in the finish and gets bone almost chalky dry. Nice easy drinking beer.

Flemish Kiss 6.5% Served in a tulip it pours a bright brassy orange-gold with a thick foamy head of light-beige foam. It’s paler than expected from a Flemish red but has that wonderful tart/sour fruity & vinous character with light spice notes. It has an active carbonation with all bubbles and bright sparkling carbonation. The taste is light, acidic, vivid tart fruit - bright berries & light malt bready notes. This beer brings some of the wow character that the Urban Farmhouse didn’t.

Bottle to glass at CBS. Orange copper color with a nice rocky off-white head. Aromas of brett, funk, wood with some apricot, prune and cinnamon. Active carbonation with a medium body. Taste is more of the same with the fruit and spice standing out as it warms. Light sourness on the palate. Dry finish with nice tartness. Excellent!

Strykzone (5900) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2015
750 bottle shared with Ritch and Amy. Foam blew out upon opening. Not much sweetness left here. The brett took care of that. Brett is noted but is not all that funky. Gobs of tropical fruit. Pineapple began to dominate. Carbonation is prickly. Really nicely done.

Boutip (5357) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of tart notes with solid dry Belgian style malt backbone and light dry hops notes are also noticeable. Taste is a complex mix of tart and funky yeasty notes with solid bready malt backbone with a long finale. Body is full with good carbonation. Easy drinking with quite a bit of complexity. Balance is also pretty good with not much acidity.
