3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somewhat sour malt, a little roasty. Smooth mouthfeel. Tons of retained bubbly foam on medium brown colour. Brett has done wonders to this. Good drinkability and something to share. July 2011 bottling.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
16.9oz capped bottle poured into a Tripel Karmeliet goblet. Appearance is a dark, reddish brown with a huge fluffy brown head that dissipated slowly. A bit over carbonated. Smells of Brett, spicy citrus and pine. After waiting 5 minutes for the head to die down, it tastes of funky Brett, citrus and with a sweet after taste. Funky Brett is predominate. Overall, if you like the funk youíll enjoy this beer. I would definitely have this one again.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled July 2011 Batch 1
Picked up the 16oz bottle of this at the brewery, sign next to the beer warned of an over carbonation potential from the brett. I opened over the sink with no ill effects. Pours a slightly cloudy rusty reddish brown color with a decent tan head that recedes but never goes away and leaves decent lace. Smells tart with a hint of cedar. Tart almost lactic cherry and lemon with a bit of brown sugar. The nose is a dead ringer for a Flanders style brew. This doesnít taste at all like it smells! Malty caramel and brown sugar with bit of bretty funk. Sharp tannins from the cedar as well as some wheat or Belgian yeast funk thrown in the mix. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation syrupy watery mouthfeel. Iím torn on this one. I canít believe that this beer was the original intent, but its not half bad. Iíd be interested to see how this one ages, oud bruin perhaps?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A reddish copper ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, a strange woody and peppery malt, with light Brett notes. In mouth, a smooth nutty chocolate with woody notes, Brett and coffee, very interesting. Bottle at Belgian Beer Fest, Sept 10, 2011.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled July 2011, Batch One, Bottle no. 564. The pour is an extremely foamy reddish-brown. The aroma is wooden, probably due to the cedar, and light malts. The body is around medium. There is a very biting bitterness in the taste along with wood and yeast, Elegant. One cannot help but to wonder how closely this beer mirrors the flavor of the beer drunk in the taverns of the eighteenth century
