Thanks to dujayhawk for sending this bottle! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Hazy and dark gold, with moderate visible carbonation and a finger's worth of white fluffy head.

S: Funky barnyard, pilsner and cracker malts, and some light Belgian fruity yeast esters (primarily apple).

T: Bretty dry funk, grassy barnyard, cracker malts, almost cider-like on exhale. Reminds a little of a saison in execution. Finishes quite dry.

M: Light body with good crackly carbonation sensation, and low alcohol presence.

O: This was a solid beer, if nothing earth-shattering. Enjoyable, and I'm glad to have tried it.

Golden with a bit of reddish highlights. Minimal carbonation. Effervescent carbonation. The nose seems to be a battle of Brett and coriander. I'll give the Brett a slight advantage. The taste is again a struggle between the Brett and coriander and this is a much tighter race. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth. I just don't know that this blend of flavors really works well together.

750ml bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared by schen9303.

Pours a .5 finger foamy white head with poor retention. Beer is semi-clear orange. Lacing is stringy with decent stick. Legs are thin and oily. Decent looking beer but head retention and clarity could use some work for the style.

Nose is coriander, peppercorn, Belgian yeast, honey, and cane sugar with a very mild Brett funk in the back. Pretty clean and appetizing. Appropriate for the style too.

Opens sweet and nutty. Coriander, nutmeg, brown sugar, and Belgian yeast in the middle. Some caramel and walnut flavors floating around too. End is clove and more Belgian yeast with a sweet, honey finish. Good complexity but really a bit too sweet for me overall.

Light bodied with moderate to ample carbonation. Light, fluffy, and a bit prickly in the mouth. Goes down quenching and clean. Messy finish with a long, lingering, filmy finish. I kinda like this.

A nice sessionable beer that tastes nowhere near its ABV. This is dangerously drinkable but overall, the malt body is too much for me here. I'd revisit this one but its by no means one of the better offerings in its style.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish body. Clear with a nice off white head. Good retention.

Smell - Fruity. Caramel. Yeasty and malty.

Taste - Malty with a apple-y flavor. Very fruity. Deep caramel in the middle. Dries out in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe medium heavy. High carbonation.

Overall - I don't get the brett at all. Generic maltiness and yeast flavors.

Had on tap at Max's during BBW 2013 (from notes, 10/27/13).

A: Slightly hazy copper with great lacing.

S: Funky, yeasty and bready.

T: A yeasty farmhouse flavor dominates but I get no brett at all and was really in the mood for some. No slight tart or funk at all.

M: Smooth with massage bubbles.

O: A good pale ale, that was more saison than anything with brett.
