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.

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Served from a 12oz bottle into a Smuttynose Big Beer tulip. Celalr temps.

Appearance- Clear golden with big bubble white head that leaves some remnants behind.

Smell- Brett funk and malt dominates this. It starts off, funky lemony flavors then the malt aromas take over. Thats really it.

Taste- Like the nose. Brett starts off funky, then the belgian yeasty malts come in and finish is Belgian candy sugar. Like a belgian pale with some brett funk in it. Banana, lemon, bread, mild funk.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full carb with light body. Easy to drink. No pucker in this one.

Overall- A lightly funky Belgian pale. Thats it, nothing more.
