A: pours a slightly hazy yellow with two fingers of white head that fades into a thin cap with good lacing.

S: candy sugar and a good amount of barnyard funk and must. Sweet, funky, and slightly tart. Nice.

T: lots of barnyard flavors going on here as well. Candy sugar, tart fruits, slight phenolic flavors, and a lightly boozy finish.

M: light body with medium carbonation, this beer is nice and drinkable for its abv.

O: a good tripel, overall. The Brett adds a lot of nice funky characteristics.

Thanks to Jeff for busting this one out!

Pale canary yellow, opaque with yeast and charged with racing carbonation. Fluffy head of white foam leaves behind lots of soapy lacing in the glass.

Unmistakeable dry Brett aroma in the nose, lightly funky wet hay smell.

Taste is very dry and crisp, not sweet and boozy like many tripels. Wet hay, dried botanicals, slightly floral. Clearly employs Brett fermentation and becomes more of a wild ale as a result. It's light bodied and well carbonated, almost drinks like a Brett saison. Overall it's drinkable and balanced, recommended.

750 mL gusher poured into a taster glass.

Appearance - Hazy with a huge white head. Eternal white head and collar.

Smell - Bretty with lots of phenolic notes. Citrus aroma. Banana and clove.

Taste - Standard tripel flavors up front. A little phenolic, but not overpowering. Citrus yields to clove and malt. Brett dries it out nicely.

Mouthfeel - Medium body before it dries out quickly. Great use of brett.

Overall - I'm genuinely impressed. It's an American tripel that isn't sweet and dries out.

"St. Whatshername was made traditionally and fermented funkily. Pear drops, hay, clementine orange, pineapple, pepper and spice. 3 types of brettanomyces lend a rounded funky, bright fruity kick to the long, very dry and crisp finish. Strong willed, thoroughly dirty and utterly dangerous...the beginning, or end, to a magnificent story."

From 05/19/13 notes. Big thanks to Patrick, founder of Where the Wild Beers Are, for bringing some bottles of this to share. Bottle 158/200.

a - Pours a hazy yellow golden color with one finger of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus, a ton of brett, lemon, orange, spice, apples, fruity malts, sour fruits, and breayd malts. A huge citrus brett bomb, which I love. Awesome nose.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, brett, fruity malts, spice, Belgian style yeast, bready malts, toasted malts, and biscuit malts. Nice taste, though much less brett than the nose had.

m - Medium body with modertae cabronation. No alcohol heat, pretty smooth and easy to drink.

o - Overall this was the first Pour Decisions beer I've had and I liked it a lot. TONS of brett to it, especially in the nose, so if you like that in a beer you should like this one. I liked this the best of their beers, but look forward to having more stuff from them in the future.
