Bottle pour for New Brew Thursday's 3rd Anniversary event held at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruits, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable but I am not getting any sort of wild aromas and flavors.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Even a soft pour produces a massive head, with clumps of foam sticking to the tulip; the liquid was golden and hazy

Smell: Delivers a shortbread malt character, a perfumed sweetness, some lemony hops and just a hint of cheesy funk

Taste: Lemony hops, stone fruit and funky phenols, up front, with the malt detected on the nose taking a back seat through mid-palate; white pepper and coriander drive into the profile, after the swallow, with a moderate funky character lingering into the rather dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a flabbier than expected level of carbonation; slight warmth in the gullet

Overall: Interesting, but the flavors dance together in an awkward fashion, marking this as one the Bruery's less successful one-offs

Thanks, Madirish76, for the opportunity

Wow, a lot of carbonation in this one. Pours with a huge, clinging, lasting white head. The body is a slightly hazy gold, more turbid toward the end of the bottle.

Interesting and very layered aroma. Aroma hops are still present, citrusy and herbal, but there's plenty of peppery spice from the yeast, pear, lemon and a moderate funk from the brett. A little leathery and earthy, with a dry malt backbone.

A very yeasty palate. Plenty of leathery barnyard funk, along with peppery phenols and citrusy/lemony hops. Alcohol is slightly noticeable, but not harsh. Pretty dry, the brett has really eaten up all the residual sugars here, though there's still some heft to the body. Finishes moderately bitter, herbal and a bit earthy/funky.

Pleasantly surprised by this one. Heard it wasn't too great to begin with, but the brett appears to have come out more with age and turned it into something very enjoyable.

Pours a white head. Leaves some splattered lace. Color is a clear golden orange.

Aroma: Floral and earthy hops. Some brett and funk. Dry spices. Some fruit notes. Pretty clean.

Taste: Brett funk up front followed by herbal and floral flavors. Fruity citrus with some spices. Yeasty and some Belgian flavors.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and funky. Lighter bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, an easy drinking golden ale, as it should be. The brett adds a nice layer. Good stuff. Nothing crazy, but solid.

Bottle courtesy of RS membership. Served in a Bruery tulip.

Pours a mostly-clear apricot color with a huge fluffy white head and quite a bit of lacing. Great retention. The nose brings forward some nice stone fruits and a bit of straw. Also there is a good amount of earthy funk. Very nice. Flavor adds in a bit of alcohol, but otherwise nice funk. Light body and very dry. Slight booze. Overall, I am very pleasantly surprised by this one.

750 ml bottle.

A: Pours a hazy yellowish orange with a huge rocky white head which leaves a meringue-like lacing.

S: Horse blanket funky (how could anyone not like this?) yeast, herbal and floral, spicy, with mild citrus notes.

T: Slightly sour, biscuity yeast, lemon, and pepper.

M: Dry, tangy, slightly sour funk.

O: Really like this. The brett really shines through. Excited to see how this one cellars.

poured into a mikkellar flute,

amber with a nice amount of hazziness to it. An enormous head of white foam lifted up to a height of around three inches before settling down to a full inch of white and sticky foam that clung to the glass the rest of the session, nice carbonation streaking up from the inside.

The aroma was very solid. Nice light fruit notes, with a very well hidden Brett profile. Light grains and a touch of a fresh grass like hoppiness sneaking in as it warmed up. Light and delicate flavor with a crispness that was very nice. Clean with little in the way of funk showing up here. Light grains and some peach and pear/apple notes that were followed up nicely with the slightest amount of sour flavor, nice dry finish.

I think it needs some more time but is still quite nice

From 07/07/11 notes. Brought this one to a small get together at Thorpes. Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Fantome tulip.

a - Pours a hazy straw yellow color with two inches of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident. Leaves some spotty lacing on the glass, looks pretty good.

s - Smells of brett, Belgian style yeast, light fruit, light citrus and lemon, earthy notes, and bready notes. Pretty nice.

t - Tastes of Belgian style yeast, bready malts, light sugar and sweet fruits, citrus/lemon, bananas, and brett. Some earthy notes again as well. Not as much brett as I was hoping for, but good.

m - Medium body and low carbonation, very smooth and creamy. Very easy to drink.

o - Interesting reading recent reviews as they don't look favorable, but I liked this one. Some definite brett in the nose, and pretty easy to drink. Would have it again.

The pour is a cloudy golden color with a rather large white head. Intensely floral on the nose and still decently hoppy. A lot of Brett and yeast with a moderate funkiness to it. Just a hint of fruit and a fair amount of bready malt. The flavor is quite bready with the same floral character, maybe a bit on the sweet side. Lightly fruity with a heavy dose of musty, funky, Brett flavor.

Pours a light golden color with a huge bone white head that persists forever and leaves much stickage on the way down. Smells of bready pilsner malt with a fair amount of tart and sweet pomme fruit. Sweet honey like malt aroma are countered quite lovingly with light tart and funk. The flavor is sweet and malty up front with a fair amount of tart and sweet fruit offset by a solid hit of spice and peeper along with a hint of funk. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a sweet tart bubbly fruited mouthfeel. This one is interesting, but it wasn't my favorite offering from the Bruery.
