Picked this up a Lukas Liqours in KC, MO

Pours an effervescent straw/honey color with a 3 fingers of pearl colored head. Hazes up a bit, great head retention & lacing

S: Dirty & grassy, fades as this warms

T: Follows the nose, some green apple skins & nice sourness up front. Some citrus mixes with with grassyness & brett. Finishes with orchard fruit, brett funk & grapefruit

MF: Light bodied, firm carbonation, great balance

Such an easy drinker, another great beer from Stillwater

A 650 mL bottle from Appalachian Vintners in AVL. A light bretty ale to get me through the night.

A: Pale, incredibly light, the yellow hue of a macro lager. This pale ale lives up to its name admirably although a mild hazy does weigh on the ale. Plenty of white head on both the first two pours. Ample lacing follows.

S: The light acidity of the brettanomyces leaps out, a dry lemony crispness. Underneath, pale malts and an assertive hop bite linger but the brettanomyces is the star.

T: The lightness of the ale is superb, soft enough to go with most any dinner offering. The brett, like the nose though, is the big game in town. It's dirty horseblanket flavors are light, lemony with a dry citric finish. This isn't funky in the pedio/lacto sense; instead, the brett leaves a general 'dirtiness' to the ale. A very dry finish to it, I immediately need another sip. The low alcohol is a blessing, never getting in the way of the brett. Light piney residue isn't a standout but its definitely there. A low key way to end a day.

M: The bretty dryness is very nice, approachable even. It's lingering lemony flavors own the ale while keeping things light. Quite nice.

This is a very good session beer, which the brewers intended. Superior lacing, smell was difficult to pin point but pleasant. Enjoyed this one, but a little light on the tongue. I will enjoy this one next time with some mussels and clams. Also had a bottle and it always surprises me that some beers are so different from bottle to tap. ON tap the brett in this really comes out and adds to the pleasure of drinking. You really can not go wrong with this one, the price even makes it better.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

I sure did like this one. Served in a tulip glass, a copper-gold color with a slight haze, capped with a finger of creamy white head that retained 'til the end and left a thick blanket of lacing on the glass. Great aroma, fresh, and laden with floral sweetness, honeydew, pear, apricot, afterthoughts of bready yeast, peppery spice, hay. The taste fell a little short of the aroma, but it was still very nice. Pale malts, sugar sweetness, floral, fresh cut hay, bready, light hints of citrus and melons. Smooth and tasty, light-medium body, but still a bit chewy, and highly enjoyable at a nice reasonable alcohol level.

4.4/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives with a meringue-like head perched on top of the hazy amber-colored liquid; clumps of lacing stick to the glass

Smell: Bready, with lemon zest, sage and a barnyard tone

Taste: Opens bready, with the lemon and spice elements adding a slightly grassy character by mid-palate; after the swallow, there is a nice blend of the base malt and the herbal with a subtle touch of bretty dryness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with crisp carbonation

Overall: This is a fantastic session beer, filled with flavorful nuance

22 ounce bottle. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with an inch and a half off-white frothy head. Head retention is excellent, and there's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is very nice, the brew smells like hay, peppery spice, pears, brett, lemon peel and some earthy hops. It tastes like sage, pepper, lemon peel, hay, brett and a little bit of bubblegum. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth but has a little bit too much carbonation for me. I think it's a good overall brew. Low in alcohol, but full of flavor! It's definitely worth trying.

Light gold color...lingering head. Big aroma...cat litter, peat, funky fruit. Taste is bitter and rich...decent overall flavor despite the aroma. A bit dry, some peach...nothing outrageously wonderful or bad, nice though...I could down a big bottle despite the smell!

Beer shared by Michael or Michael (have issues) the other day. Thanks! Beer is yellow and hazy with a lazy white head, wispy bubbles, some lacing, low retention, moderate carbonation, looks good.

Aroma is strongly brett, very strong, nice aroma, like Orval on crack.

So light in body and yeast forward. Very strong brett presence and a dry finish, it is definitely a session table beer and is yeast heavy. Very strong, very nice, I'd have it again.
