This is the L'Brett d'Or dry hopped with simcoe--I believe.

A golden color pour, a bit murky. Soft white head, a bit more pronounced than other CS beers. Must be the hops, money.

Aroma is pleasant with a touch of musk. Fruity and floral. The hops give it a nice pine touch that goes well with the aging.

Flavor is subtle orchard fruits. Some apple, peach, dirty orange and crabapple. Somewhat 'green'. Some puckering, but nothing sour. Dry and acidic on the end. Easy drinking.

A - Pours a cloudy darker orange with an active fizzy light tan head that fades quickly.

S - Funk, Brett, Hops, pears, subtle citrus-unique and nice.

T - Brett, oak, hoppy-grass, citrus, buttery wood.

D - Mild carbonation with a medium body.

O - A very unique and delightful beer. It's a hard one to place at this point, but who cares, it is good.

Pours a hazy dark golden color with a small white soapy head that recedes to leave some really minimal spotty lacing.

Aromas begin with woody and earthy oak and hops. A nice funk with some light citrus and green fruitiness adds to the rustic grassy and woodiness.

The tastes follow the nose but are so much more intense. Lots of green fruit and some tropical fruit flavors as well. Green apple, clementine, some white vinous flavors, peach. The funk and oak are also there as well and dry out the finish. As it warms the oak and some lactic acid emerge more.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to light carbonation. The finish is nice and oaky with plenty of tart fruits and some mild earthy funk as well.

Overall this is a star. I have not sampled the non-dry-hopped version but I wouldn't want to after having this. It was apparently dry-hopped with Simcoe which is a hop that can add a multitude of flavors from oniony to pine to tropical and citrusy. These hops must have been the fruity ones because this is beer has an amazing flavor profile of unripened fruits and mild citrus. Anyway, CS is really honing in and cranking out super solid beers recently. After not loving a lot of the WWB series beers early on, the most recent releases have been some of, if not the best American Wild ales I have had to date.
