750, capped. Thanks J&A! Pours a cloudy medium orange with a thick and creamy white head. Bright orange peels on the nose with soft vinous lemony counterpoints. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Perfect orange juice and tonic water balance on the mid palate. Long dry finish. Wonderful beer with a nice future ahead of it, though the balance of sweet and dry notes is pretty perfect right now.

Bottle at What the Funk listed as Maybelle Variation. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is funk, citrus, oak. Thin mouth, light sourness, lemon, light funk, brett, really nice.

Sampled at Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2015 - Pours golden yellow with a white head. The aroma is sour with some onions and citrus. It has a medium crisp body. The taste is weird with some sourness, onion, funk, garlic, pale malt, citrus and is pretty smooth. This seemed strange from Commons.

Light white wine pour. Aroma is light tang, mild lemony citrus. Taste is full bodied brett and oak with a butter popcorn thing happening on finish. Nice fullness on mouth. Overall, nice farmhouse.

Dogbrick (9639) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing. The aroma is bretty with herbal and fruity notes. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral yeast, funky fruit and malt. The finish is moderately tart with a sour grape and citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

slowrunner77 (7264) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bright and lively is right. Brightly funky, a little winey and oak. Low bitterness and some lemon and grape tartness in both flavor and aroma. A classic contemplative yet sessionable beer. Loved it."

hopscotch (10130) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle... Pours murky and golden with a short-lived, fizzy, white head. The complex aroma is a fruity, herbal and funky intermingling of pale grains, citrus acidity, earthy fallen oak, English lavender and leather. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is a mélange of sweet pale malts, lightly tart acidity and bright herbal notes. Short, citric, snappy finish. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

(750ml bottle) cloudy medium orange, fine offwhite bubbles. Nose of apricot, Brett, lightly tart, mossy cellar floor, old books, and caramel. Taste of earthy Brett, stonefruit, oddly tart but not sour, bit of caramel, yeasty.

So good. Floral and slightly sour. Great for the summer. Little to no white head and cloudy golden appearance.
