COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed predominantly with organic 2- row, the malt bill is rounded out with organic light munich, organic 60L crystal and caravienna. Northwest Golding and Hallertauer hops provide a pleasant hop character. Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

Draft at brewery, Portland. Pours a darker orange, decent amount of white head, aroma citrus and a crisp grain, definitely some brett, but just a twinkling. Body medium and finish somewhat abrupt, with some citrusy bittering notes. Very drinkable and again, being fresh greatly improves my impression of the beer, as the bottle was somewhat underwhelming.

bottle bought for us by a generous soul at Bottleworks. Light orange gusher with a geerous white head. Light brett, lemon zest, yeast, grass. High carbonation, moderate body, somewhat dry and tart. Good but think I would prefer this with a bit more time for the bugs to work more magic.

Bottle shared by tom10101, thanks! Pours a nice golden (huh? I was expecting red) with a thin white head that leaves great lacing. Nose offers some light tropical fruits and some acidic edges that provide a fresh impression. Brett makes itself known but it isnt overwhelming. Taste is of brett, fruits and hay. The finish is bitter, the drink itself light and smooth. This was really nice and refreshing but it didnt feel Flemish, not at all.

Bottle (750 ml). Thanks to Lurkaholic for this one! Hazy orange with a medium fully lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of brettanomyces, herbal notes, mint, floral presence and some yeast. Taste is slightly sweet with brettanomyces, light tartness and fruits, floral/herbal notes and a moderate but sticky herbal bitterness finish. Medium body. Good carbonation. Very dry finish. Good Sour. Fresh and drinkable.

Une bouteille de 75 cl. Un liquide dor et une mousse abondante. Une dentelle langoureuse. Un nez de brettanomyces et de fruits rouges aigres avec un bouquet de conifres et de fleurs sauvages. Un got floral et terreux, piquant et aigre, avec des canneberges, des citrons et du cuir bien neuf. En bouche, je ne dteste pas son corps longiligne. Le ptillement vif est un efficace nettoyeur. La texture est gonfle par les levures. En finale, ma langue devient trs sche tandis que les autres tissus de ma bouche profitent bien de cette fracheur surprenante. Une belle surprise.

Warning a bit of a gusher here! Pours straw golden with billowing white head. Aroma is grassy hops, medicinal brett, melon, and musty funk. Really nice soft carbonation and great flavors. Love it.
