3.65/5  rDev -2.4%

Semi-expressive brett throughout, ranges from lemon pith to lavender. Semi-dry palate, bread crust and dried grass from the malt. Peppery with a growing alcoholic warmth. BTW this beer is 10% abv. Hint of funk, more spice and alcohol warmth in the finish. Good use of oak. This is brew is huge, treat it as such even though a beer drinker like me may want to take more than a sip. Was hoping for bit more dryness ...

750 ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet malts with some tropical fruit and brett.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruits and some earthy brett with some alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I love the brett and tropical fruit. The alcohol is a little harsh.

Clear orange pour with a small bubbly white head that fades away quickly. Aroma is mildly sour with some orange. Taste has a bit of alcohol upfront with tastes of oak, yeast, honey, and light lemon. Medium body also has faint hints of bread and caramel. Expected it to be sour and it really wasn't.

A: Pours a hazed and vibrant golden/orange color. A two finger, creamy looking white head forms with good retention and spiderweb looking lace.
S: The nose is of juicy tropical fruits. Peppery spice, some funky Brett, and light wood aromas. Well balanced, and inviting.
T: Tropical fruits again. Lightly tart, a bit sweet, and really juicy. Peppery spice, and the Brett is apparent and well incorporated. Wood flavors are a bit more noticeable as well. I love how well balanced everything is.
M/D: A medium body with lively carbonation. Effervescent and crisp, though smooth at the same time. At 10% this is big, but there is only a hint of warming alcohol in the finish. Really enjoyable and easy to sip on.

This reminds me of a bigger, slightly sweeter version of Orval. The balance is great, with lots of character from the yeast. I need to get more of this.

On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit, brown sugar, and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of Brett bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty fruit and Brett combination going on.
