750ml corked and caged bottle poured into tulip 29/9/12
A hazy golden yellow with not many visible bubbles but there’s lots of them in there because I’m having trouble fitting it in my glass. The massive loose soapy head retains very well taking its time to fall leaving just a few random patches of lace
S lots going on with this one, I’m getting the coriander no problem, the Brett’s hard too miss, faint peppercorn but I can’t remember smelling a Kumquat before, it’s a mix of mango, passion fruit and orange marmalade. Earthy notes and oak with some vinous notes I can’t quite place, tropical citric hops round out the mix. Everything just blends together so well and I can’t think of how this beer could smell better
T a step back from the nose this only tastes awesome, spice comes out stronger with more earthy vinous notes, the funky Brett and fruit works well, I could drink this all day…or at least until I couldn’t move
M over carbonated and foamy, a swirl produces a two finger foam after the original head fell, I could do this several times, no heats a plus but quite airy, a mild bitter bite and just a fine tannic like grit
O very pleased with this one, a nice blend of fruit, hops and a very interesting yeast profile and a spicy kick. This one has a little bit of everything and its working well no matter how you look at it.
I’m stoked to drink this one and could take down another 750ml no problem. The Brett’s already strong and I’m going to find out how funky this will get, I’m going to buy another to drink now and lay one down for fun

Popped the cork of 22 oz bottle & poured into my Russian River stemmed glass. Foamy head explodes filling the glass in spite of a very careful pour.
Head retains very well with nice lace as head gradually recedes.
First impression is of a typical Belgian IPA but then the nuances take over challenging the senses. Sweetness, spiciness, sour notes make for a very enjoyable experience.
A great sipping beer so bold I couldn't finish the bottle at one sitting. Rebottled into a swing-top bottle to finish at a later time.
I love a good Belgian IPA - quickly becoming one of my favorite styles and this didn't disappoint.

3.63/5 rDev -9.7%
750 ml bottle. Pours bubbly hazy bright yellow with a huge bubbly white head that grows in the glass and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is spices, soapy floral notes and brett.
The flavor is sweet wheaty malts and sweet honey fruitiness with floral hops and peppery spices that leaves some good bitterness in the finish. The brett is a bit subdued. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall, an interesting well done beer. One of the better Belgian IPAs I've had. I still don't really love the blend of Belgian yeast and the hops - maybe fruitier hops would be better for me. I'd also like more Brett out of this one.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma if full of brett, with some orange notes as well as some bread from the malt. The flavor is similar. I get a ton of brett and orange citrus notes, with a little bit of bread and biscuit malt. There is also a nice yeasty component to the flavor and a low amount of hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.

4.18/5 rDev +4%
A very pretty, slightly hazed, light yellow and golden with a two-finger high near-white head that lasts and lasts. This eventually leaves irregular rings of lace down the glass.
Complete aroma with bright, floral hops, Brett yeast, grass, hay, lemon, and a bit of pepper.
The flavor is just as good as the aroma, with a surprising level of bitterness complementing the funky Brett yeast, sweet fruit notes, earth, hay, and grass. I like this a lot, though it's not quite as complex as some similar beers.
Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation.
This beer is better than the sum of it's parts. It's delicate, interesting, well balanced, and incredibly enjoyable to drink.
