It’s a deep bitter style that eludes traditional style descriptions - not quite an IPA, not quite a Belgian, but delicious, dank, and a bit soapy. Recommended as a different direction for hop lovers and Belgian lovers.
I just love this beer, it mixes the fresh hopiness of the Ipa with the subtle complexities of Bret, mixes well and I find myself creving this beer more and more. the aroma is subtle bret with a sweet hop front, appearance is dark golden with full fluffy head, flavor is spot on in its sublte complexities, refreshing finish, very inviting. Palate sits well on the mouth and overall it is just an extremely good beer. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2009
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 Hazy amber with big, flotsam, off-white head / Perfumey nose of brett, herbs, and orchard fruit / Light to medium body, tart and dry, with long, bitter finish / Upfront brett punch with flavors of rose petal, violets, chrysanthemum, apple, caramel, coriander, white pepper, and oak / On a par with Jolly Pumpkin.
