Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - MAY 3, 2008
2006 Bottle. Its a gusher! Pours a hazy copper with a ton of rising carbonation and a loose, fluffy, lasting, off-white head that leaves behind thick lace. The nose is a nice blend of bretty funk, light fruit (sweet pear and faint key lime), dusty farmhouse and some light spice. Medium-bodied with expansive, soft carbonation, it finishes dry and moderately funky. Lightly fruity and funky up front, a solid bretty yeast note asserts itself as the profile transitions to a slightly tart and quite dry finish. This would pair quite well with mussels, ceviche and other "lighter" but assertive foods. I had this beer on tap over the weekend (at GI Clybourn), and it has developed into a completely different animal given time for the secondary fermentation to do its magic.

2007 Bottle. Pours a dark tan with an inch of foamy off white head. The head falls slowly and lasts a while. Smells of citrusy hops, and more hops. Taste is light fruit and hop bitterness, with a well-balanced bitter aftertaste.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2009 [On tap at Wrigley] Reddish amber pour with lage bubble and a whispy white head. Toasty malt and Belgian yeast aroma. Rich sweet malt and Belgian yeast flavors with some fruit, cranberry, and spice. Creamy but well carbonated body. 2009 bottles much much better. Lots more brett. yummy.

nimrod (73) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 27, 2008
On tap @ Radio Maria. This was at least 5x better on tap than bottled. Beautiful reddish copper in different layers, small head and nice lacing. The aroma was great with citrus fruits, bread, nutmeg, banana, and other tropical fruits. Taste was yeasty, fruity, and a bitter hoppy finish. Lots of spices, some carbonation, and good overall texture. Be sure to have this on tap if youve only had the bottle version.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2008
Served from 12-oz bottle at Bistro 110 in downtown Chicago. Pours a semi-clear amber brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Some nice lacing. Aroma of caramel and Munich malts, some white pepper, cloves, a touch of coriander and fruit bread. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of biscuits, light yeast, some cloves and light fruit. Finish has a mild bitterness with some white pepper and bready malt aftertaste.

Pours a clearish amber with a white head. Quite sweet with a romas of cereals. Dry and quite yeasty. High carbonation. Spicy, a bit like a wit. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Long dry, yeasty finish.

BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2008
Not much of a head, ruby amber with minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet hops, toast. Flavor is lightly spiced, high drinkability. Malty hints. Well balanced, not too thick/syrupy. Pretty decent american take on a belgian style.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2008
Draught at Goose Island, Chicago, Illinois. I found this overly sour and disappointing. I ended up trading with my drinking companion for Honkers. The aroma of fruit and hops was nice.

Pours a gold/orange with white head. fruit, bread, pepper, citrus, and spice (clove). This is nothing that special and Im not a huge fan, but its still well done.
