This beer pours a cloudy yellow color, with a thick, light yellow head. The fluffy head fades very slowly, leaving a thick lace.
This beer as a Belgain funky aroma. I detect a mild banana presence. Slight clove as well. Some coriander and grains of paradise mix in.
This beer tastes like it smells. Funky, with some banana and spice flavor.
This beer is well carbonated. It leaves a spicy, clovey aftertaste.
This beer would make a decent session beer. The funkyness might become cloying after a while though.
Overall: This beer was one of the first rare beers I learned about in 2004 when I was making my journey into craft beer. I have wanted it since then. Now that I have had it, i feel let down. it want bad, but I put it on a pedistal.

i think this is superior to the new belgium release, but still a let down as wild ales go. the brett hasnt changed this much since its release, and we are left with an underwhelming pale hazy yellow beer thats soft in feel and well heady, but pretty minimal as far as flavor goes. lots of stale wheat malt, and a yeast that is neither funky or traditional, its sort of dry and bready, but the usual characteristics of the brett dont ever show up. i get some fruity zest on the back end, but a general staleness is my takeaway. the feel is fine, bubbly and light on the palate, but the flavors just never really show up. kind of a sloppy yeasty mess, i know the lost abbey is capable of better, they have some amazing wilds, but this one is a bit of a throwaway at this point.
