Deep amber with good head, good retention and good lacing. Aroma is phenolic, minty and slightly funky. Very sweet with only a moderate hop character; but the sweetness is not monolithic. However, I am not the biggest fan of brett-ing it: makes the beer smell like armpits if you ask me.

Even so, it's a well made Belgian IPA but lacks the crispness of Belgian ales in general. Interesting beer but not my cup of tea.

Served on-draught into a generic tulip glass at the Republic bar in Minneapolis (just across from the Town Hall Brewery). Reviewed from notes taken around Thanksgiving 2012.

A: Pours a two finger beige colour head of nice cream and thickness, but average retention (~2 minutes). Body colour is an orange-copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Bretts, bread, cream, and amber malts. An average strength aroma.

T: Bretts yeast, grains, vague bright fruit, pale & biscuit malts, floral hops, and a bit of cream. Well built and balanced. I like it. It's quite flavorful and complex.

Mf: Smooth, wet, and crisp. Carbonation and thickness are good and suit the style.

Dr: Very drinkable and enjoyable for the style. I'd get it again. Surprisingly complex for a brett yeast beer of this type.
