330mL bottle from Carwyn Cellar 9.5% Bottled 14AUG17
Dense white head sits atop a hazy orange body.
Peculiar aroma - almost like cooked/burnt/caramelised banana upfront, LOTS of clove, sultana, pale candi sugar, pear esters, touch apricot (almost interchangeable sometimes?), phenolic pepper.
It did make me think straight away - well, if its a Brett tripel, will it be dry as buggery, an effectively like a Saison - not quite, or at all, very full body, verging on heavy (certainly would be without the Brett & tartness) - booze is a creeper!
Sourness sort of changes the dynamic completely on the palate - almost because mandarin/kumquat-like upfront, pithy too, never had a sour banana (is there such a thing?) but it sort of tastes like that, get that sort of pale candi sugar sweetness too, ripe pears, apricots, nashi pear (!?) - I dunno - spicy on the finish, slightly earthy, phenolic, once again BIG clove hit that lingers.
All over the shop really - the tripel, the Brett, and the sour component are seem slightly out of whack, not well integrated, somewhat unbalanced it could be said - maybe if they chucked this in a barrel it could bring it all together....? Or is that just my solution to everything!? pperle1 (1) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 15, 2018 does not count
Best sour beer on the market! Friends who do not like beer enjoy the "sour" taste. Nickls (2634) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2018
Tap. light clear gold. Tangy lacto sour light fruit in aroma. Flavor is herbal and vomity sour, some gravel acidic and really not my thing and seems subpar. Ligh body. Bullit (4845) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2018
Bottle from Village Beer Merchant. Clear golden. Fruity, sour, tart apples, med high carbo, bit estery. Sour - tripel mix, pretty well done. glennmastrange (2948) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2018 Bottle. Light grain and hay for the malt, light herbs for the hops, light to moderate meadow for the yeast, with a faint hint of white wine vinegar in the background. Head is small, wispy, white, with some slippery lacing, and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear straw. Flavor starts moderately to heavily acidic and sour, then finishes moderately acidic and sour again. Palate is light, watery, with a lively to fizzy carbonation and a tart finish. A really nice refreshing Sour Ale. Full of flavor and still easy drinking.

Currently my favorite beer. If you like sour beers, you can't go wrong with this! GregM05 (23) - - JAN 21, 2018
Different sour taste but still overall enjoyable. Sour taste makes for an interesting beer to have for certain occasions.

Delicious. All you can say. If you're into Brett fan, this is about as good as it gets. Full mouth, balanced Brett, sour is noted but tame, and the tangy, tart, tantalizing, tincture is...like I said. Delicious.

Sour Belgian malt aroma with a fruitful body finish is very sour. Sourness pretty much overpowers the Golden Monkey flavor. Dervock (1541) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2018
Bottle - pours pale gold with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a tart twinge. Taste is malty tartness upfront transitioning to a bit of dry tart malt and fruit.
