3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Churchkey for CBC. Poured a real hazy yellow color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some grain, lemon, light pepper. Flavor was lemon, pepper. Was really hoping for a bit more of the brettanomyces. Perhaps with some age this one would get real funky. Is there more of this around?

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Churchkey. Pours a fairly clear light straw color with a good white head. Wheat in the nose. Faint orange peel and a bit of lemon. Flavor is crisp and wheat heavy. Very dry. Excellent mouthfeel overall. Really impressive beer that went to incredibly smoothly. Would be absolutely excellent for the summer. It’d be great if this were bottled to give the Brett a bit of time to develop.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Churchkey. Pours neon bright yellow to straw. Weak head. Nose is lightly funky, nothing I would consider great: pear, mint, gamey melon, something close to fresh orange juice, lots of lemon, vanilla extract. Interesting combination. Taste is powdery, lightly tart, lots of mealy apple and powder in the mouthfeel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Nose is delicate with very faint citrus and tropical fruit, wheat and a sweet musk note. Lovely amalgam of musk and soft wheat. The brett in here is subtle and sweet still, would love to see how this holds up or changes in the long term, and with the amount of body it has, would certainly love a funky white wine barrel aged version of it. Om nom nom. Gentle musk leads into a lightly soft finish with soft sweet wheat, faint orange and I finally get the pepper (pretty pink peppercorns) in the background. Gorgeous stuff. Brilliant.
