3.9/5  rDev +2.6%

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in late spring 2012. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a 1-2 finger foamy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of bright lemon, tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, apple, white pepper, hay, straw, grass, candi sugar, bread, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of lemon, tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, apple, white pepper, hay, straw, grass, candi sugar, bread, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy/peppery spiciness with slight tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, tangerine, pineapple, peach, pear, apple, white pepper, hay, straw, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice nice complexity and robustness of fruity/funky/spicy yeast and moderate pale malt flavors; with a very crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderately dry on the finish as well. High carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Brett Belgian pale ale. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

3.8/5  rDev 0%

A) 3.50 Cloudy and dusky gold. Small head and not much glass decoration

S) 3.90 Lots of funks wood. Notes of pear, grape, pale malt and light overall sourness. Horse blanket and vinous The underlying malt dinner roll sweetness lays a nice bed for the yeast and earthy hop counterpoint.

T) 4.10 Since this has been in the bottle for almost two years it has had a bit of a chance to develop. I really like what I have in the glass. Pale malt with all the pear, apple and grape to add sweet light structure. Lots of oak and a bit of light vanilla. Belgian funk lays down a lot of depth. Sharp, pronounced, but delicate bitterness.

M) 3.75 Medium light body has a light crispness and smooth carbonation.

O) 4.0 Great beer for summer food. An excellent alternative to a whit wine. Drier with add grain complexity.

4/5  rDev +5.3%

A: Cloudy golden amber with lots of medium and large bubbles rising fast. 3 fingers of yellowish head has a sheen to it like candy glass, and fades moderately fast.

S: Fruity, I get pears and lemons, apricots and peaches, stone fruits galore, a sweet jam jelly component and the tart pectin of sour fruits all at once.

T: A sour fermented pear and nectarine first hits the tongue, followed by fruity apricots and a jam like sweetness that is subdued. A good hit of Belgian yeasts reminding me of a good tripel or farmhouse ale is definitely present. A snow like quality as well.

M: Medium thick body, medium carbonation, dry finish.

O: Amazing brew. Got this in Charlotte, NC, drank in Jacksonville, IL, Aug 11-12th, 2014. Been wanting this one for a while, and finally got my hands on it. My second Russian River Collaboration beer.
