4.08/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

750 ml corked and caged brown bottle

Pours a light lemon honey color with a slight chill haze and a large 2-3 finger foamy bright white head that stays around a long time and leaves copious amounts of sticky lace

Smell is a sourdough bread with a slight barnyard hay funkiness and a touch of dirty gym shoes for good measure.

Taste up front was some light fruits, pineapple and pear mostly. This was quickly chased away by the flavor of some undercooked sourdough bread and slight sweet cracker flavor. toward the end I picked up the hops which are prevelent but at the same time married to a barnyard flavor that confuses my tongue. It sorta tastes like a chunk of sourdough bread soaked in a pilsner and topped with a shot of a good ipa. very interesting The warmer it gets the more tart the pineapple flavors seem to get, and the dirty barnyard hay comes through more as well.

there is plenty of carbonation in this one, light and crisp on the mouthfeel. finishes reasonably dry.

I drank the whole 750 tonight without much problem, but I think I would have preferred to share it with at least one other person as the farmhouse-esqueness started to get a bit much for me as the beer warmed, but it was much too complex to drink fast.

This one is worth trying, and I am going to sit on a few of these to see if the two strains of brett change it in any way as it ages.

750ml bottle: This one pours a fairly opaque amber color. There was about no head on mine, nor any lacing. Nice nose: bring on da funk! Nice whiff of sour fruits, along with some spices. Earthy notes too. The taste is quite good. Sour fruits dominate the flavor. Some bitterness trying to come up through. Hint of breadiness. A nice beer!

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; best before 4/21/2012 date on the cork. No pop upon releasing the cork, flat beer. Pours a very hazy reddish orange color with no head. A minimal lace cap does eventually show up that lingers; with minimal glass lacing. Aromas of caramel, pear, apple, grape, wood, leather, clove, cardboard, toast, and yeast earthiness. Unimpressive aromas with decent balance and complexity; moderate oxidation makes this a bit unpleasant. Taste of caramel, pear, apple, grape, golden raisin, toast, brown sugar, leather, light wood, cardboard, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, light fruits, toast, leather, brown sugar, cardboard, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Decent flavor balance and complexity; with moderate oxidation flavors and minimal cloying flavors after the finish. Nearly zero carbonation and medium bodied; with a slick and creamy mouthfeel that is decent. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a poor Belgian golden ale due to the oxidation and lack of carbonation. Decent complexity and balance of flavors; but the oxidation makes it unpleasant. I had to drain pour this one, not enjoyable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very hazy, golden orange color with a very large, fluffy white head that takes quite a long time to go down. Scent is spicy at first with some delightful peppery notes. Some tart green apples and white grapes with some pear and tropical fruits. A light hoppy aroma with some earthy notes and fresh cut grass. A lot going on in the aroma and a good amount of bretty funkiness...very inviting. Taste is initially brett-like barnyard spiciness. Immediately followed by pears and green apples Pepper with some Belgian yeast and tart apple flavors. Some floral hoppiness with a nice crisp, fruity finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, dry and refreshing. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this is a great beer with huge potential. I wish I had another bottle of this to age, but at the same time I do not regret drinking it now. Very tasty beer.
