750, oof this is 11%. No mustard seeds, but i guess thats not a bad thing. A thin boozy lame subpar Belgian strong. Barrels do nothing to improve this. not impressed. That said, nothing really offensive to warrant a lower rating. Reynolds314 (3433) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 10, 2014

Pours a slightly cloudy straw amber with one finger of off-white head. Nose is lightly acidic with a large brett presence, pineapple and fresh cut citrus. Flavor is really nice, very dry and citrusy. Zesty with fresh pineapple and heavy brett influence. Lightly tannic and cider, definitely an apple component to this.

Bottle - Sweet apple and light barrel notes. Cloudy gold with no head. Apples and some oak notes. More like a boozy cider. Not a fan. Scopey (14505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle thanks to Tom at RBESG 2014. It pours hazy gold with suspended particles and small white head. The nose is earthy, brett, funk, apple pie, candy, wood, mild acidity, hay and barnyard. The bitter, acidic, big wood, earth, funk, barnyard, alcohol, vinous, brandy and even more wood with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A bit woody and boozy.... Too much for me.
