4.65/5  rDev +19.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Faintly hazed golden color with a billowing large sticky bright white head. Funky nose of tart apple pie and pear pie, ripe tart wine grapes, sweet candy, caramelized banana. Really big nose.

Great beer with big flavor and a long finish. Husky grain on the tip of the tongue. Tart fruit, apples and pears on the middle of the tongue, belgian funk, hay and earthiness. White wine grapes throughout much like a fruity chardonnay. Banana and nut bread on the back of the tongue with a dry grainy bitterness and a touch of fruity alcohol heat. Faint spiciness and clove throughout underneath it all. Finish is of a long lasting banana and wheat taste. Despite all this flavor the beer manages to finish clean and crisp and refreshing with the alcohol being very well hidden. Feeling it just after half a bottle. Really great beer. The fruity malt and hop really plays off the funky brett flavors really well. I dont think this is a hate it of love it brett beer. I think this is a you have to love it beer. Awesome. Feel Belgian but at the same time it doesn't.

Swirling in the yeast now.

the yeast takes away a little from the fruit and gives the beer a bit more of a spice but its nose bad. This could also have to do with the beers temperature change though as well.

Big earthy, barn yard feel to this wild ale. Very little sour power, but big fruit characters. A slight spicy feel in the back of your throat. Tasty wild ale, but I wanted more mouth puckering flavor and mouthfeel.

Some of the fruit notes are bananas, very slight mango character. The smell was the best part of this sour..

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Murky light apricot, near white solid head, tight bubbled cling lace.

S - BARNY, straw, a bit acrid and malt way underneath.

T - Barn, a little Merthiolate and bandaids, settles to sharp tang and malt.

M - Medium body, good carb, good balance.

D - This beer is pretty good for the stye, but it's not my favorite style. A little too funky for session for me.

4.83/5  rDev +23.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Poured from 750ml into tulip

A- hazy, opaque straw colored with nice persistent head. Nice lacing left behind during the drink.

S- pretty upfront with some barnyard funk and hay then gives way to some sweetness that reminds me of apricots.

T- taste pretty accurately follows the smell. Starts awesomely funky and "bretty." As that passes I get the slightly sweet stone fruits and then finishes with a hint of bitterness.

M- dry with lots of carbonation. I don't know if it's in my head or not, but it seems to leave an oily sort of film on my lips. That sounds unappealing, but it doesn't upset me at all.

O- I'm falling in love recently with this farmhouse, wild yeast fermented style of beers and this absolutely does not disappoint. One of my favorites.

4.6/5  rDev +17.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle into PALM tulip glass.

A: Hazy amber with finger and a half of white head with some of the best retention I've seen.

S: Wild yeast, cotton candy and bubble gum. Almost indulgently sweet.

T: A funky yeast dominates with hints of the sweet bubble gum and cotton candy. A sweet/sour war on the back side almost takes your breath.

M: Medium body with fresh carbonation. Fills out the other traits nicely.

Another excellent Belgian today.
