On-tap 8/14/2014 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub in Pawtucket, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wild Belgian yeast, tart fruit and some caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with some sweet flavors of berries and caramel. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. There’s a decent balance for the style. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, decent representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

On tap at PreFunk tonight... Pours a hazy orange with a pretty flimsy white cap and no real lacing.

Nose is a bit funky, but with a bigger lean toward fruity esters... a bit of something that I associate with white peppercorns.

Flavor and aromas mirror each other... the brett shows as a sorta dank/dusty cellar essence.. damp hay... peachy esters play with the limited residual sugars and linger for the finish.

Body and carbonation are fine.... Okay brew... Seems sorta pedestrian given the pedigree... Though, there is nothing wrong with that in the grand scheme.

3.5's across the board.
