Poured a RIDICULOUSLY large head. I kid you not, this has the largest head on a beer that I've ever tried.

Scent is spicy, very sharp.

First sip is sharply sour, like a shock tart sour.

This beer is a big, BIG beer. It offers such a unique pallet of wild yeasts while at the same time giving sweeter qualites that you usually don't see in many beers.

The New York Times really knew what they were thinking when they chose this as the best Belgium Ale.

A - Pours a hazy golden orange with a two-finger foamy white head. Heavy amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aromas of lemon zest, brett funkiness, and sweet malts.

T - Opens up with a nice malty sweetness. The sweetness fades into lemon zest and brett funkiness. The finish has a touch of white pepper that mixes well with the lingering brett.

M - Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing. Nice dry finish.

O - This is a damn tasty Biere de Garde. Very drinkable and refreshing.
