On tap at 72 Hours of Belgium yesterday.
Light yellow, with a dense white head forming disk, this looks good.. Nose has mostly Brett with light sourness rather Orval-like. Clove, bandaid, lots of clove and light honey. Palate is similar. Biscuit, honey, band-aid and clove. No hops, light floral honey-like sweetness. Drying and Bretty on the finish, the carbonation is very, very high. A little watery, but great otherwise. Solid stuff.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from the monsterous cork and cage into an Allagash chalice.
A: A hazy pale golden hue, nice 3 finger head that drops to a 6mm disk. Lacing is spotty with hint of legs. Tight bubbles.
S: Yeast and malt are dominant. Classic yeast profile with sweet and breadiness and gentle spiciness balanced by a citrus note in the profile.
T: Amazing apricot and citrus notes and a slight metallic musty note combined with white pepper.
M: Creamy on the uptake, smoothness and then drops into a slightly sharp metallic and sour note, then finishes with a slightly malt-dry finish. Metallic and sourness hangs around forever.
O: Very good bretted notes brings a slight gentle sourness that perfectly complements the brew. Carbo is spot on too, lending to that creamy initial hit.

2014 bottle. Hazy, light-amber appearance. Plenty of foam but it's not out of control. Good head retention and lacing characteristics. Aroma is excellent -- Brett really worked some magic. Very ripe stone fruit upfront, like apricot. Very floral hop aroma, the dry hopping showing through. Funk is restrained -- a bit of leather and old, musty paper.
Mostly dry flavor profile with fruit characteristics. Some honeyed sweetness mid-palate that fades toward the finish. Ripe white grape, peach, and/or apricot. A bit bland and musty on the finish. Very fine, frothy carbonation that's quite soft.
A very interesting Belgian ale, similar to Matilda from Goose Island. Can't really recommend over the latter due to the price premium, but it's got a killer aroma and great flavor.
