The colour is brown-orange, the liquid cloudy. The low head is white.

The smell is yeasty and somewhat bitter-hoppy. Brett notes makes me think of Orval.

The taste got notes of Brett, too. Stable, dough, herbs and tart green bitterness. The overall flavours are milder in the aftertaste with peppermint, dried fruits, hay/stable and tart herbs. The long finish is somewhat sour with some green herbs.

The carbonation is strong, the large bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is light and smooth.

A funky and pleasant beer, but it is a bit unfocused.

Pours a clear light yellow brew, with some lambic-like head. Smells like a Belgian pale ale, with its characteristic yeast, plus some feint funk, lime, lemon zest. The taste is something between a berliner weisse and an unblended lambic, watered down a few times. It's alright for a warm summer day, I guess.

No clue of the age on this one.

Aroma is grainy and slightly musty, with a hint of Belgian esters of peach and green apple. Flavor is fairly lacking. There's an underlying touch of menthol and lime, which leads to a moderately bitter finish. Effervescent carbonation lifts the flavor from the palate before it really sets in. Malt is lightly toasted, but subtle. Very odd.

Appearance: Crystal clear light yellow, dissipating white head. OK Lacing (4.00)

Aroma: Moderate-to-high brett funk aromatics of pickles horse blanket (4.00)

Flavor: Much less pronounced brett flavor, leans towards a watery-sulfury yeast character. Really falls flat (3.5)

Mouthfeel: Dissipating, well carbonated, light bodied (3.75)

Overall: It's Alright. (3.6)
