3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at iTap. Cloudy orange gold color. Aroma is strong with herbal brett and some citrus hops. Flavor has more bitter hoppiness which interferes with my desire for a brett bomb. So, it’s bitter hops and brett, which don’t mix well for me. Less bitter hop and more herbal brett is what I’d prefer.

Pretty nice farmhouse. Even more sweaty tartness than I was expecting. Gold and clear. Mild fruit and earth.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours mostly clear with a white head. The aroma has earthy brett, dry caramel malt and some herbal hops. It has a very smooth body with a light amount of soft carbonation. The taste is kinda over bretted to me with a pungency of earthy husk and funk. I don’t get much on the way of hops. This one is not for me these days, but of you can’t get enough brett in a beer this may be for you.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a nice off white head of foam with good retention. Head settles to a persistent film and leaves good lacing. Aroma is nicely complex with a combination of citrus rind, tropical fruit, bubble gum and a phenolic character. Taste starts with some mango, tropical flavors and perceived sweetness, that quickly transitions to citrus pith and a moderate bitterness. A slight phenolic flavor along with some musty earthiness and mild black pepper spiciness in the aftertaste. Finishes dry with lingering earthy bitterness that builds. Lighter bodied with a moderate level of carbonation that helps to give it a little more mouthfeel. Well crafted with harmonious flavors and an enjoyable level of complexity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz tulip draft at Crane Brewing Company in Raytown, Missouri. The pour is a clear golden with a small white head that is lasting, settles slow with splotchy lace. The aroma is big dry funk, leather, earth, mineral and bright resin hop. Fresh and clean nose, nice mix of the Brett and hop. The taste follows the nose, starting with the dry leather funk, melds quickly with the resin tropical floral hop and the finishes with more of the Brett funk. The palate is medium bodied with active cleansing carbonation and the dry mineral Brett funk finish. Excellent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A towering frothy white head settles slowly over a glowing honey-amber body with medium haze
Bright white pepper-citrus pith assertively opens and eventually mellows a bit, leading to tangerine and pineapple with a mild underlying layer of mushroom-like basement and hay adding depth and just enough earthiness to compliment the mildly creamy, white doughy malt on a somewhat creamy medium body with rounded, active carbonation leading to residuals of the previously mentioned components... a sense of cherry adds to the fruit cocktail as residuals build
