3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml from CBX, Charleston. Not having tried the less-than-total brett version, Iím at a loss as to how this compares to the original. But I enjoyed it considerably, almost like a brett gotlandsdricka or something. Deep golden pour, well carbonated, the nose was quirky and appealing: musty oak, vinous notes, plenty brett, and a suggestive smokiness. Pleasant mouthfeel, a bit perky and mildly acetic. Flavors were quite nice too, with the smoke understated and some pronounced citrus coming through, wine barrel framing the whole thing. Unexpected and very satisfying.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slutfest. Pale hazy yellow, slight head. Aroam is band-aid and smoke. Flavor is smoke, phenol, weird cherry note, smoked wood. Bizarre. Not sure if I loved it or hated it. I suspect a full bottle could be challenging. But definitely interesting and unique. In the end, just not my bag, but I respect the heck out of how unusual this was.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slutfest 2013: Smoke and brett nose. Milky yellow, headless. Tart lime and sour apple flavor. Pronounced band-aid on the back end, but strangely it works and I seldom feel that way. Definitely more brett than chlorophenolic. Smoky on the nose, which is probably where it should be. Nice.

Aromas of smoked hickory and bandaids. Hazy, pale yellow with low head. Dry, tart, bitter, smokey, citrusy, and floral. Light body, lively carbonation, and a smokey, perfumy, lemony finish.

Bottle. Pours semi-cloudy yellow gold. No head. Nose and taste of smoked meat, banana yogurt, tart lemon, oaky light funk and citrus peel. Slightly vinous. Not much. Taste has initial tart acidicness followed by heavy smoked bacon. Body on the lighter side of medium - appropriate for the style and ABV.

Thanks to travlr! This is a legit beer. Hints of vinous, barrel yogurt tang, some beautiful brett funk, and light lemon citrus bite. Touches of rye and campfire. I like this one a lot.

750ml bottle poured a light cloudy golden yellow color with aromas of peat, smoked wheat, light lemon, and some tart wheat. Flavors were light smome up front followed by some light tart wheat and lemon. Another solid beer from these guys, so much better than the original one.
