1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
The pour is a hazy golden straw color with a thin white head. The nose on this beer is awful. Sawdust and cardboard overpower the nose. Light lemon peel, maybe some oak, heavy on the bandaids, and a bit of dirt are there for good measure. The flavor has a subtle tartness, a bit of water, and huge cardboard and sawdust notes. Some bandaid, musty oak, lemon peel, and that might be about it. I tried to forget...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at Natifest 13. Poured a cloudy golden color with a mostly lasted fizzy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and sour yeast aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet & sour fruit finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle. Hazed gold pour. Aroma is purely brett, and not really as brett trois as I woudl expect judging the description. Tastes like a high-boost orval that was aged too long to be honest, somehow this brett beer remains hugely sweet, no real hops as they have long faded and the barrel notes are minimal, just stinky unbridled brettiness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of light Brett with a hint of dry wine and plastic. Flavor has a good amount of breat and wine upfront but finish has a good amount of plastic.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by JStax- thanks again, Jeremy! Bottle 188/480. Pours a hazed orange-gold with a small white head. Aroma of Bretty funk, floral notes, citrus- mostly orange, tropical fruits, sweet malts- so far, so good. The flavor pretty much offers more of the same. Plenty of funk, florals, and citrus peel. A bit of basement/cobweb mustiness. Wine barrel character is subtle. The fruit and sourness are very subdued here. Light-bodied, with a dry mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. This beer is unfairly maligned. The only knock I could understand is that it seems restrained, but given other FFF sours that haven’t turned out well, that seems like a welcome characteristic.
