a near perfect beer for thanksgiving. a little brett, not too funky or wild, but definitely more complex than your standard holiday swill. hazy light amber color, copper tinted, with an inch or so of thick white almost nitro looking head. the nose is as much Belgian yeast as it is brett, mostly very light malts, pale, and herbal on the hop front with a distinct spice on the back end. the flavor is basically the same as the smell, but the Belgian yeast and brett do some outstanding tandem work in fermentation. its a little bigger in body than I thought it would be, and has very lively carbonation. its fruited and spiced in at first, and the slightly tannic wild side comes out just in the finish with maybe a splash of vinegar, nothing harsh or abrasive. overall another beauty from perennial. maybe not as interesting as some others, but its a good potential gateway wild beer, given its noticeable but approachable brett characteristics. good stuff with the turkey!

Haven't had too much from Perennial and I'd heard great things about them. This beer, while not bad, certainly was a let down. No flaws, just blahs

Looks great. Nice big white rocky foam atop a bright golden body. Awesome sight to see

Aroma is weak. Barely any spice from either Belgian yeast or hops. Semi sweet, semi grainy. Weak. Nothing bad

Flavor is a flash in the pan of pale malts and subdued sugar. Very light on the taste buds, almost invisible. Would probably go well with cheese if it had carbonation feel to it.
Maybe that's the magic part of this beer that I'm just not getting; carbonation. The head suggests it has some bubbles, but it feels filmy and slick. A BPA? I don't get Belgian or pale out of this beer.
Does hide the booze really well, though.

Welcome to DC, Perennial!

Served in a Port City glass.

A: Poured a dark, cloudy orange color, with a whopping sudsy white head to boot.

S: More brown sugar and white pepper than citrus. Malty for sure….grainy even.

T: Sorta blah, and somewhat sugar heavy. It definitely want to make me go back for more. Actually, the initial flavor was good, but the aftertaste wasn't. Not much citrus here.

M: I actually like the feel. Spritzy and champagne-like, with lots and lots and lots of lacing.

O: For $13.99, I expected much better.
