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)

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.

Trip to The Bruery, July 2010. Pours golden with a thin off-white head. Aromas of candy sugar and clove. Very mild with a slight wheaty taste. Not too sweet.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 8, 2010
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.

Tap at the Blind Tiger. Aroma has a nice horsey character, wheat, not much else. Thin, very lactic body, dull, lifeless. Slimy finish.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 7, 2010
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.

Aroma is faint but a hint of Belgian yeast surfaces. Pretty sparkly and carbonated. Similar to the Saison de Lente without the Brett. Really warms up the cheeks.

On tap at the Bruery. Pours a golden yellow with slight white head. Aroma is mainly bread, yeast, and fruits. Taste is about the same, really get the Brett in the first sip as the the yeast and bread flavors hit you first. Mouthfeel is pretty watered-down, slightly fizzy with good carbonation. A let down from the Bruery, no complexities, just a seemingly watered-down attempt at a Belgian Blonde. Maybe it will age well, but probably wont be going back to this one on tap.
