Real nice and complex Belgian. Has a dry and fruity profile. Has some bitter overtones and is vastly carbonated. This should be purchased if you enjoy wild ales or Belgium's in general~

Had a couple 750 ml. bottles at the Gate, in Brooklyn. Labels were corroded and stained which suggests they'd been sitting and aging for a while. Poured into tulips. Beautiful bright orange. Big brett on the nose, and in the taste, though more funky than sour, in the neighborhood of Orval -- my buddy noted the faint but undeniable taste of gorgonzola; he was dead-on.

Pale orange color with a soda like head that leaves a ring of foam clinging to the glass. Lots of bubbles rising to the top.

Fruity, earthy aroma with hints of white pepper and a mild funk.

Flavor follows the nose pretty well. Prominent orange and apricot. Mild spices. Not too sour but has a pleasant funky character. Subtle herbal hop. Well balanced.

Medium, bordering on full-bodied. High carbonation.

Overall, pretty good. Nice funky notes but I would enjoy a little bit more sour character from the Brettanomyces.
