3.85/5 rDev -9%
750ml bottle with a date of 12/21/12 poured into a snifter. The brew appears a pale golden yellow color with a big white cap that fades back leaving patchy lace on the glass. A swirl effortlessly revives.
The aroma opens up a little awkward and not that desireable with notes of burnt plastic and strange phenolics. As it breaths, the plastic dissolves a bit and in its place is mostly a lemony lactic character.
The taste is tart and fruity like pear/apple and wheat with a kick of alcohol that feels mildly like perfume. The aroma showcased some real plastic off-character and thankfully that is mostly muted in the taste.
This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A unique wild that starts off harsh and grows on you as it breaths and opens up.

Thanks to OakedCanuck for the awesome in person trade this past summer.
A 750ml corked bottle that is bound with string. The cork loudly pops and I anticipate a gusher but the beer stays put. A straw pale yellow brew pours into my glass with a huge frothy white head, crazy carbonation bubbles up from the depths of my glass.
Nose is of pear, sweet grass and tropical fruit
The taste opens up with pear, grassy notes and a slight funk. The taste of Belgian yeast is in the finish.
Overall really good stuff. The taste is fairly delicate with the funk being light. Nice balanced flavours. I want to try the other offerings from this brewery.
