Pours quite bright light golden color. Still a bit awestruck by the luminosity. Modest white head. Nose had significant brett/barnyard, stinky cheeses. Big funky nose. More tame on the palate though some herbal notes, light malt, medium body, and easy drinkability. Good carbonation too. Finish has plenty of ripe barnyard. Going to need a breath mint after this one, I'm guessing.

Poured out slowly and this one still had a massive white foamy head that formed on top leaving a nice sticky lacing on the glass. The retention was really good on this beer too. The color was a hazy yellow with some orange in there as well. The smell of the beer was earthy, some light acidic notes and subtle citrus on the nose as well. The taste of the beer was also on the earthy side, very subtle spicy notes with a solid bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel was sharp, lots of carbonation in this one, really crisp feeling. Overall it was an enjoyable brew, much like a lot of Stillwater's beers.

pour is a hazy golden yellow with a dense white head and a few larger bubbles. The nose is nice, light brett, heavy fruit presence, apricots and tropical stuff, light hop presence, oily and sweet. The taste is a bit less expressive but still very nice and balanced. Great gentle Brett presence, fruity and nice, tropical flavors, apricot, light hop, oily and a touch sweet. Light body, refreshing and crisp carbonation.

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%

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
