4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) frothy eggshell colored head that is big and lasting atop this gold pour. Nose of honey, Belgian yeast, spicy, floral, horsey, mildly tart as well. Taste is also big on florals, brett, honey, gold raisin, pear, alcohol, Belgian yeast, an absolutely delicious floral linger, some tartness found in the finish as well. Maybe the best spin on a sour tripel I’ve ever had. I’d drink this regularly if they could make it often!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
from notes. cloudy golden color, lots of carbonation. billowing head falls to a cap. straight up funk and tropical fruit. lots of biscuity malt. fairly woody. Taste is of boozy malt with lots of malt that is kind of sweet. smooth at first with a harsh alcohol feel. not really something that i want to drink.

Bottle shared by Ughsmash...thanks Jason! - Golden pour with tons of fruit, brett and barn yard funk on the nose. Taste is much more sweet with as much fruit as sourness. There is still enough sourness in there. It was mentioned that there was a bit too much carbonation, and I agree. All in all this is still an fantastic beer, I never expected to get to try!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from a late 2010 trade... Pours a golden orangey brown hue and topped with a thin creamy white head quickly to dissipate... Sweet and yeasty l, fairly sweet all around with a fair bit of vanilla and pineapple note to follow... Flavors follow suit with an upfront sour lightly funky sour tint and then follows up with more of that sweet tripel profile which actually kills it for me. Carbonation is almost too lively and sweet from an overall perspective. Somewhat of a letdown to be completely honest.

Bottle: The aroma is lightly fruity with a touch of lemon and funk. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a small white ring for a head. The flavor starts fruity with hints of banana and orange peel. The finish has a touch of lemon and oak. Light-medium bodied with lively, somewhat prickly, carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle generously shared by Ughsmash...thanks Jason! - Pours murky golden amber, hazy with a foamy white head. Has a huge funky nose--dry and Bretty--real oaky. Not real sharp, with a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is sweet honey and tropical fruit, real nice smooth oak. There’s enough funk and dryness to finish it out nicely with a delicate grapefruit sourness. A little carbonated up, but that’s a nit--this is an awesome beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. This is a beer I have wanted to try for a long time.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is extremely funky. I get a lot of brett funk as well as some bready malt, oak and orange citrus notes. A very inviting aroma.
The flavor is also very nice. I get a lot of tart lemons and oranges along with some oak and brett funk. The sourness is definitely present but I find it less sour than the Splinter Blue. Overall, I would say the beer is more funky than sour. The beer is very dry and easy to drink.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
