3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Brasserie V. Unfiltered orange-brown. Big steady beige head. Pronounced funky dry sour aroma. Same thing for the taste. In some ways the background is a big Barleywine, but the wild yeasts really took hold. Sort of like a Double Orval. There are some odd infected tones under the desired sour qualities at times. Brutal, not really that subtle or perfected. It isn’t so thick, but has a rich oily burnt malt/hop taste in the background. Dry passionfruit tones, not so citric. Barky, woody almost. Dried out Brett Barleywine. Interesting. Unruly, unrefined, truly wild.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ fairbar, 15 / 6 2013. Cloudy dark orange, small white head, not much lacing. Aroma, delicious hoppyness of citrus, pine, grapefruit, with a very funky wild yeast mix, like passion fruit, you do sense some malt. Taste, sweet malty, hoppy, fruity, passion fruit, resin, . The wild yeast is some what hard to catch, would be perfect for a comparison with the normal. Ends with slightly dry, fruity, passion fruit hoppy note.

Pours orange with white head and no lacing. Aroma of floral and pine hops. Taste is the same with a light malty backbone, booze, and some cough syrup. Texture is syrupy. Excellent brew.

Bottle thanks to bhensonb. Poured orange with a fast fading white head. Aroma and flavor were both lots of citrus, passion fruits, slight caramel, and wild yeast. Absolutely wonderful tasting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at northdown. Pretty weak one here, lots of caramal maltiness, not a huge bitterness or brett presence. Funny how that goes with an overattenuated beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the Bayou. Pours a cloudy copper color with a large white head. A big brett nose with tropical fruit. The flavor is an interesting mix between sour and more funky wild yeast flavors and big fruity hop flavor. Very good, a true mix of IIPA and wild yeasts. Drinkable.
