A lightly hazed blonde ale with a thin creamy lacing white head. In aroma, a flowery and perfumy malt with smooth Brett, very smooth and pleasing. In mouth, a nice citrusy malt with herbal hops, Orval-like, Brett notes, alcohol warmth, herbaceous and complex.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice white head. Citrusy nose with some straw, pineapple, light melon, and a pleasant dryness. A hint of spice, some bready malt, and as it sits, lemon drop candies. The flavor is a bit more bread/malt forward. Some citrus peel, straw, lemon, yeast, and light spice. A hint of tropical fruit and dry on the finish. Really nice and easy drinking. jpchindi (35) - - AUG 15, 2012
Great name but pretty average overall. Nothing wrong but nothing that stood out when I sampled it recently. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Sort of bretty, a bit of fruitiness. Not too much sourness or tartness. A pretty average brew. hivemind (933) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle at James’ a few months ago. Thanks James. Smells of mint and ginger leaves. Taste is fresh: citrus, wood, mint, yeast. High carbonation. Complex and good.

Draft at The Farmers’ Cabinet in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a very hazy, light golden orange color with golden yellow edges and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of lace left behind.
Slightly funky, earthy aroma with subtle acetic vinegar undertones along with funky barnyard yeast notes. Musty and sweaty with a strong citrusy wheat presence. Hints of lemon, musty funk, earthy wood and peppery spice.
Full bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel that compliments the tart barnyard funkiness really well. Slightly vinegary but not acetic or solvent-like. Earthy, funky yeast with some brett and a subtle lactic presence along with zesty, peppery spice and sweet citrus. Really well balanced and very quaffable considering the complexity. I enjoyed this beer immensely. SrSilliGose (3324) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 28, 2012
Tap at lions pride. Soft pear cobweb brett. Dry fruity yeast. Light leather and basement funk. Real nice. Complex tasty well made beer. JDBaker11058 (2427) - Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Appearance: hazy, creamy yellow/ orange/ gold with a short, creamy white head shrinking to a cap. Aroma: citrus, tart fruit, and funk. Taste: tropical fruit, black pepper, funk, citrus, and yeast. Finish: suprisingly bitter and sharp. Notes: As far as brett-skunked saisons, not the best I’ve had, but not terrible. On tap at Victoria’s Gastropub in Columbia, MD.
