4.4/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Tulip.

Appearance: Golden orange with ridiculously massive, clingy head that keeps climbing despite my best efforts to stop it. Patience required.

Smell: Definitely Brett aroma with loads of barnyard funk. Some spicy hops as well.

Taste: Strong Brett taste as well - funky and earthy. The malts are rich but soft. Strong spicy hop presence.

Feel: Highly carbonated body that is extremely light. Very dry, tart finish.

Overall: Awesome Brett beer at less than $2.50 a bottle. Great stuff.

12 oz bottle review part II. bottled on 07-03-12. consumed over 2 years later.

head forms as soon as the cap is off. this thing had some action going on inside it over the past two years. getting the barny aroma and that is about it. a little musty as well. drinks mildly tart with a little barnyness and then get bone dry. really, really, really fucking dry. i cant find anything on there except the mildest of yeast bitterness bite. carb has definitely picked up with time, might have had my first sample very close to its bottling date and had not given the conditioning enough time to kick in. held up very well over time and true to its label stating that it is continually evolving. i actually cant say for sure they are still making this brand (couldn't find anything on their website), so it perhaps would be worth it to snatch up any seen on shelves!

12oz bottle into tulip. cant seem to locate a bottled on date.

A: a very hazy, very orange looking brew. the head is quite voluminous and wont allow me to pour the entire bottle at once. head is big and fluffy and has great retention. lacing is good.

S: chalky, earthy, boatloads of yeast esters. little barny-hay, dry action going on here.

T: black pepper, tart dryness. cantaloupe. yeasty esters. dry finish. lemony.

M: mouthfeel is a little flatter than i would imagine/like. medium bodied.

D: pretty tasty shit. dry, refreshing. reminds me of Orval, but not quite on that level. worth picking up.
