look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

375ml cork & caged bottle poured into tulip. Bottled 5/24/12, a little over 2 years old.

A- Pours a translucent orange golden, a slight white head forms that quickly recedes to a fairly flat top, carbonation slightly on the low side, light clingy lacing.

S- Heavy brett influence, blonde ale underneath with some very subtle spices, light barnyard funk with slight hay, grass, and floral aspects. About average aroma strength, some nice subtle complexities influenced by the brett.

T- Light sweet blonde ale malts with a balanced bitterness, some brett influenced barnyard qualities, not overly sour (just a hint), finishes with some subtle and balanced spices, hay, and a grassy touch. Nice complexity, maybe not my favorite beer taste wise but overall nicely done.

M- Light tingly carbonation, medium bodied, fairly drinkable with a light boozy touch, finishes with a little bit of a bitter kick.

O- This was a fairly solid beer with nice subtle complexities that is definitely better then what the rating deems it to be right now. I imagine the brett may have come out a bit with the 2 years of age on it, improving it overall. Definitely worth the try and will easily hold up at least another couple years.

3.76/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with an inch or so of foam that leaves strands of lace behind

Smell: Wheat bread, straw, Belgian yeast phenols, leather, banana; hints of peach and cantaloupe

Taste: Opens with bread and banana tones, with a hint of funk developing in the middle, along with cantaloupe and peach flavors; leather and sweet candi sugar tones combine in the finish with the other flavors that appeared earlier

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body; slightly overcarbonated

Overall: Drinks more like a Belgian pale than a wild ale, as others have noted even after giving the Brett a couple of years to do its thing; it would score higher if the expectations weren't set by the labeling

4.18/5  rDev +18.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appears a glowing orange toned gold with a fluffy white cap that never fades. Tons of scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of peaches, and passion fruit with an abundance of vanilla pulling through.
Taste is echoing the aromatics with citrus, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, and vanilla coming through.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, spritzy, and even keeled. Hardly sour dominant by any means. Very balanced, and brett forward on the mellow end.
