A: The pour is a cloudy golden-orange color with a mild white head. S: The brett does not really produce too much in terms of funk here. Some fruitiness in the form of oranges and pineapple, along with a mild spiciness and perhaps a bit earthy. T: There is a sweetness and bready malt character to the beer that I was not exactly expecting. Tropical fruits come through nicely as does a mild earthiness and bitterness. M: Medium body with a soft, rolling carbonation. Perhaps a bit watery/thin. D: A decent beer and easy to drink, especially at 4.0%, but not really my favorite in terms of the flavors.

Pale golden pour. Lightly spicy nose with a nice crackery malt base. Lightly noble hop aroma along with some spice. The brett doesnt seem to have had a chance to really go at this one giving the beer a more simple profile than it probably should have.

On tap at the Bruery. Pours with a hazed orange body and a white head. Aroma is slightly funky, phenolic, mango, grain and fruity. Taste is grainy, bread, some fruit, very mild brett and a slight belgian character. Lively bubbles. Interested in trying the cask only fourth of july edition of this beer.

Sampled on tap at the Brewery (or is it the Bruery?) on 7/9/2010. This Belgian ale pours a light orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and dry, slightly sweet. A medium to light bodied Belgian ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, a touch of vanilla and perhaps a touch of funk. The hops are herbal. Light carbonation. Very nice flavors for a 4% beer. The brett is, so far at least, in the background of this beer, A touch of funk and a dry finish at the moment. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Aroma has a nice horsey character, wheat, not much else. Thin, very lactic body, dull, lifeless. Slimy finish.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Tap at the Bruery. Rating #6. Pale yellow color with a nice white head. Aroma was light funk, very light, mild malt. Flavor was very mild, but in a good way, the Brett character was really subdued and in the background, still, it was an extremely nice beer to drink. (1286)

Draught at beer revolution as "Brett Blonde" 4%abv. Lightly hazy gold color with a medium white head. Spicy herbal hops, dusty and musty yeast, and some cantaloup in the aroma. Light and dry flavor with a touch of dusty yeast. Light pale, grainy malt. Finishes with a medium-light bitterness and a light, spicy hop flavor. Light bodied and prickly. Seemed kinda bland overall.
