Poured from the bottel into a tulip glass. Champagne stopped cap, with a good pop, and minor but controllable gush upon opening.

Opaque pale orange body color, with real nice pinhead cream bubbled effervesence. Rocky lightest khaki colored head, almost a faint peach yellow to it's color. Ultra fine and three finger solid head, not budging at all, you need a spoon for this one.

Unexpected brett nose, but with a wonderful aroma. Barnyard funk mixing with peach and apricot fruit, with a good faint toasty hint of maple sugar. Apple sweetness just a touch, with real good sweet oak tones almost cedar like in smell. A bit of a different contrast but a real fine one, with some real complexity going on here.

The palate is just wonderful. Creamy but lighter and crisp bubbly mouthfeel with wonderful flavors. Fruity and funky territory unparalleled, in a more tripel vein. Thick oak and rich chardonnay like quality, mixing with wonderful tones of pear and apple, citrus lemon and even touches of good wine. Vinous flavors and thick malt, with vanilla like sweetness, touches of warm clove phenols giving even a spicy aftertaste.

This is one truly unique tripel, that has one really unique profile. Wine like yet rich malt density. Fruity touches that go all over. Even phenolic heat and oak richness. Truly a remarkable beer.

Tap at Muted Horn, slightly hazy blond look; smell is mainly brett, nit much from the barrel but still very rich and pleasant; taste is brett, bready and fruity with some bitternes; very soft carbonation even though the guy who served me this told me that the night before beer was a extreme gusher. Overall good stuff

Dark hazy amber with an asymmetrical off-white blanket.

I smell graham, toasted bread, and roasted apples.

Taste is bready, slightly spiced apple. A small, sweet heat runs along as an unidentifiable booze, sort of anise-like and bitter.

A graying copper color, minimal head. The nose is full of booze, apple and vanilla. The flavor is more restrained. Wood and apples mingle with the base beer yeasts of bubblegum and sugar. The feel is a bit thin and the alcohol too forward, but definitely one I was glad to try.

750ml bottle.

Opaque gold with much sediment. Huge head (a gusher). Dominant aroma is apple and suggests tartness. Tart apple and wood up front, with some mellow sugary notes on the finish. Thick with bright carbonation. Quite nice.

Nice pale golden color with lots of carbonation and a good ehite head. Some funky smell kinda like wild yeast. The taste, WOW! There's a nice apple taste, a mild bitterness too. Really fruity and not boozy at all fro a 10% beer.
