After fighting, several times, with fedex to get some packages of beer sent home from PHX, AZ., I was able to land a bottle of this.
A - clover honey orange, crystal clear with a light, frothy lacing of head. beautiful looking brew.
S - Unmistakeable earthy/medicinal note of Brett Brux, mixed with light notes of toast and caramel along with a light floral note.
T - Honey like sweetness is followed by a complex earthy/medicinal note. toast and caramel linger in and out and a slight bitter floral flavor lingers. A bit one dimensional and would be far more satisfying during the summer months.
M - dull carbonation, almost to the point of being creamy. slight astringent bitter floral note at the end is a bit unexpected but pleasing.
D - The brett is tame in this one as is the carbonation.... would i like a little more of both? yea but it sure is a damn easy going brew. Complex enough to make you think, basic enough to not make you think too hard. I find a very happy medium with this brew... don't expect Orval, do expect a very mild version.
