3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a transparent effervescent dark copper with a well-lacing froth of cream-colored head. Has a sweet, doughy caramely malty nose with a touch of grapefruity hops and some light bretty funk. Starts with good malty fullness and light caramel sweetness with an interesting, semi-dry, grassy bretty funk balance before a crisp, bittersweet finish. An enjoyable and unique brew.

A Mes rate: cask handpull at the Sloany Pony.
Yes sireeee Bob and Yeehaw this was full on panhandle material. If it always tastes this good then I’m convinced it’s very under-rated. Awesome orange brown colour with a slight haze and a thin off white head. Amazing aroma. Loads of brett, brown sugar, cheese, sweaty socks, burnt toast curacao oranges and other madness. Dry as a nuns chuff and a bona fide keeper of the funk. My giddy aunt this is so drinkable and downable. Massively aromatic and floral. Lots of cow shit funk along with perfectly pitched bitterness. The balance is just glorious. Big bag burly bitter orange finish slaps you about a bit but leaves you up for more. So many conflicting messages bombard you. It’s brett vs bubblegum but somehow it balances perfectly. Utterly brilliant stuff.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with very thick white head. Aroma has an interesting combination of hops (pine and orange citrus) and sour notes (grapefruit). Flavor is more hoppy with mainly pine notes but a bit of citrus as well. The sour is a lot less present on the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 6/-11/09. Poured caramel/orange with a massive beige head and a floral yeasty aroma. I had to wait a few minutes for the head to subside before I could reach the liquid, probably a result of the wild yeast action. There is a spiced caramel malt flavor, and it is actually more bitter than sour. Did not meet my expectations.

750 ml bottle. Pretty brown-orange color with an enormous head. Funky, dusty aroma with minerals, slight fruit, quite lambic like. Some caramel in the flavor, light fruit, big bitterness and a dirty dryness. Strongly sour as well. Very funky, with a slight citrus hop taste too. Interesting, though a bit harsh. Huge carbonation. Very nice.
