Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought nice pear, peach and white grape, some spice notes with a hint of funky earth with some tropical fruits, touch of grass and earthy tones as well. Taste is pretty nice with some slightly lactic and funky notes, touch of biscuit and bread, yeast, some tropical and tart fruits include pineapple, white grape and pear, some grass and spice finishing fairly sweet and dry. Tasty for sure. OldMrCrow (2435) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2012

Beautiful hazy yellow with a taut whipped-eggwhite head. Gentle hints of sourness, strong but not overwrought Saaz presence. The modest brett character really makes this one work. This is a truly brilliant session beer at 4.5%, combining the best of Avril, Orval, and Amstel. (Ok, not really Amstel, more like Augustiner Pils, but "Avril, Orval, and Amstel" has a better ring to it.)
Revisit at Whistler in February. This time around I’m just not impressed. I guess this is a summertime beer; it seems a bit sour and unpleasant now. I’d give it about a 3.3 today but I’m going to let the original rating stand.
Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has a nice funky/bretty note with a bit of grassy spice. Flavor is grassy and spicy with the mildest tart/funk. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is grassy/funky and dry. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Light citrus on the nose with hints of a musty cellar. Bottle cap came off with a loud deep pop but did not gush. Pours hazy blonde with a very thick white head. Bretty pine upfront with a strong bitterness strong Brett funk and hops dominate very little malt presence. Very nice session ale though. HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Tap at Of Love & Regret, cloudy goldenrod pour with a tight, white head (like all of Brian’s beers!). Would never have guessed that this is based on a post-Prohibition beer because of the high hop content.

Small growler from Beer Street in Brooklyn. Pours hazy gold with a modest white head. Nose of lemons, citrus, grass, yeast. Tastes only slightly bretty. Some crisp floral hops. Well balanced, light, and refreshing. I wish I had this on tap in my house. wlajwl (6747) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Aroma is a mix of tartness and sweetness. The flavor is a hard to describe malt sweetness, tart fruit and a dry finish. Kind of strange how the adjuncts mix with the Belgian ale ingredients, it was interesting. notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Thanks to Armin for sharing - turbid gold, fizzy but fairly well sustained head - light mineral in the nose at first, floral notes, very light pineapple Brett notes, very light cobweb/dustiness - full carbon in the mouth - dry, flinty, moderate mineral - dusty, earthy yeast - mild funkiness - light lemon and sage - quite good - note quite as good as the table beer, but still very nice. adnielsen (10605) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks Armin! Milky yellow appearance with a white head. Tangy lemon, somewhat spicy, light brett aroma. Tangy, coconut, vanilla, somewhat bretty, a bit spicy, fairly fruity flavor. Pretty good. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Draft. Hazy straw gold pour, small white head, good lacing. Aroma of dusty brett, grassy/floral hops, adjuncts, lemon, cereal. Taste lightly bitter, grassy, brett, straw, mineral, corn, lemon. Dry, lively carbonation, lightly astringent/bitter finish. A fantastic session beer.
