3.55/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

I bought a bottle in Seattle last month, and shared it with a pro brewer in Vancouver.

The smell was of Vegemite, a product which is made of autolyzed yeast. There is a slight woody hop aroma, and some funk, with faint barnyard.

The taste is relatively clean with a hoppy bite. certainly related to orval. Alcohol is well hidden.

Despite the fact that I couldn't get past the autolysis flaw, and even with it, it was not bad.

I will look to try again, as I think there's promise in the balance and subtle brett character.
