Appearance is a slightly darker red than expected. Aroma, taste and feel are all very light, great for warmer weather drinking. Light on the floral Belgian smells and not overpowering.
500 ml bottle thanks to Matt. Deep red almost brown with upfront tartness and fruit and then sweetness. piraat83 (15) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2017 Carmel brown color very thin white head. Crisp almost cidery flavor. I can definitely taste a sour mash like flavor. This beer is also a bit hoppy. A lot going on. Overall a very interesting brew JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 30, 2017
Amber color with a light ecru colored, tall head and heavy lace. Sweet aromas, with tart cherries and light fruit, whey, light yeasty bread and hints of an orange dreamcicle. Sweet start, with some caramel and pale malts. Sweet tart middle. Finish has some bark and bitterness that is not very inviting. I’m not sure how this one will develop. 12/12

Thanks Joel! Poured a cool shade of fiery medium orange.. toasted khaki head. The aroma picked up a blend of redder fruits and a bit of honey laced with funky Brett and white spices.. lots of richness to the Brett. The flavor opened with tangy oak and fruit skins, with rich fruity meat, honeysuckle, and light molasses behind.. dried floral and fruity Brett throughout.. very dry, spicy, and Bretty on the finish. Medium-bodied and dry as mentioned on the palate.. good feel and well-balanced. wchesser (2122) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Can from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Amber brown, loads of carbonation as you’d expect. Overripe pineapple predominates the nose and taste. Solid but simple.

Copper red, ruby when held to the light. Quickly receding white head. crystal clear. Nose is of Brett, caramel, horse blanket, mineral. Whiffs of bread. Oxidation. Alcohol as it warms. Taste is rounded and smooth. Sweet caramel up front, dry finish. More alcohol as it warms. Oxidation. Sour cherries? zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2014
(draft @ HopCat - Grand Rapids, MI - 2012 vintage) Orange/copper pour with a thin white head. Dry aroma with some mild spice and a very light funk. Flavor wasn’t sour at all. Dry and a bit tart but not much in the way of sour. More barnyard/bier de garde flavors. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2014
just about as perfect an example of a brett beer as could be imagined. i was this all the time. koleminer20 (3845) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2014
On tap at Ashley's in Ann Arbor. The pour is a strange pink gold with a thin layer of white head that just won't leave. There is a little bit of lace, but nothing excessively sticky. The aroma is a little sweeter and more of a fruit dominance than a sour, which is a little surprising. The deeper you go, just more fruit. The flavor is strange. It's almost bitter as opposed to sour. No real funk, and the fruit is drowned out by the bitterness. The mouth feel is thin and well carbonated, but the aftertaste is just bitter fruit. Not good bitter fruit, but something you want to leave.

Another great gift. Pours orange-amber with a fair khaki head that leaves some spots of lace. Nose involves brown sugar, tart yeast, some funky earthy stuff, apple skin, hay and grass. Pretty sweet, fairly tart, slight bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily, snappy, tart, with a lengthy yeasty drying farmy finish. Really enjoying this. Sure it would gain some complexity with a little more age, but as is, it has plenty of good stuff going on and it’s just flat out refreshing and drinkable despite the ABV. Good stuff.
