3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle provided by Chris for Epic Tres. Pours a hazy light yellow/orange, with a half fingers worth off-white head. Nose is spicy, A little Brett, some honey, and a little phenolic. Taste follows the nose, spice and honey dOminate with some mild funk and apple in the background. Mouthfeel is light, good carbonation, dry, and a moderate finish. Good, not great, one of my least favorite of the tasting. Think I prefer splinter blue to this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours golden orange with a bubbly off white head. The aroma is sweet wild yeast so pleasant in the nose. The flavor of the spicy and sweet westmalle yeast complement the Brett so well on a decent solid body. There are boozy notes that come through clean on the Belgian style flavors and good body.

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!

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!
