look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from bottle (bought at K&L in Redwood City, most likely) into a tulip glass.

A: Opaque, pale orange color. Huge, fluffy head.

S: A lot of oak and brett funk that combine for a nice, spicy effect.

T: I'm not sure if my flu is affecting my judgement, but I seem to be detecting some hot alcohol as the initial sensation... It's that, or just some bitter hops. Either way, there's a bit of a bitter beginning. Then, it mellows out into a pleasantly wild mix of of oak + brett funk + maybe a bit of that chardonnay flavor or a general vinousness + bitter hops.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Pretty high drinkability.

O: An interesting take on a bretty tripel.

Eh? Had high hopes, kinda dashed. Looks ok a first pour, clear, translucent, golden, two finger white head, medium white bubbles. Sadly the apperance is not as it should be. The "head" is not rocky as a triple's should be. Very light citrus, phenolic hint, some remaining belgian esters. A hint of funk and barn but just a hint. The flavor brings the party. Initially light, tart and funky. Followed by a lemon lift, and some distinct sweet vanilla, oak and light spice. The marriage between the oak and beer is the best part of this ale. Full rounded and silky feel, dry oh yes very dry. But alas I will not be buying this again, it was a great journy just not the best beer.
