2014 pouring amber in color, good head and some lacing. Nose a combination of hops and oxidation notes. Taste more like a German style dark beer at this time. Generally good but nothing spectacular.

Eyes: Pours a nice, deep golden with great top and lacing.

Nose: The first bit I get is something medicinal--almost plastic or rubber. Beyond that, there are some nice layers. Toasted malt notes mixing with a floral character and lavender. There is something slight that's vegetal and earthy. Finishes with a peppery/spicy note.

Tongue: Sweet toffee, from the malt. A mild, overripe banana note that gives way to some fruity/floral hop tones. The brett character is small but consistently throughout--seems to pull it all together with the slightest funkiness. Finishes grassy with some of that Belgian spice.

Mouth: Nice, medium body. Slightly boozy with a dry finish as one might expect.

Overall: A decent brew. Mediocre nose, and a touch sweet up front. I enjoyed the minimal use of the brett though. My first beer from To Ol, but not my last.

Pour is lightly hazed copper amber with an off white tight head. Nose is dominated by candied sugar with a touch of sweet malt and sweet citrus hop. Taste is again dominated by candied sugar, the finish has a tartness to it that thins the flavor. A bit of sweet malt up front, hops are faint in the finish. Carbonation is extremely strong, body is fairly light. Beer is sweet and a bit simple, hops don't really shine through and brett doesn't really make a presence other than thin out the finish.

Bottle share at Proof. Pours a hazy orangey gold. Good amount of whitish head and a good collar as well. Aroma is of toasty malt, some citrusy hops and really bready. Taste follows almost exactly, a touch more of the hop character than the nose. Low carbonation and medium body. Good brew.

750ml into a snifter. The brew pours a murky clouded amber brown color. It looks very similar to fresh pressed cider.

The aroma is quite fruity with a significant malt backing like caramel/toffee. Some alcohol comes forward with a hint of yeast and tropical aspect before getting slightly grassy.

Taste is sweet with malt that blends into some fruity yeast and alcohol tasting of pear and apples with a little warmth and grassy to herbal hop component. The finish is a little medicinal.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. I dont really know what to make of this beer. It is malty yet boozy, yeasty yet fruity and bitter. It is quite a hodgepodge. Not bad, it has no flaws that leap from the glass and insult you. It is just sadly boring, uneventful and not memorable. After drinking it, i still have no clue what sorta classificiation you would even try to put this in. "Belgian IPA" it is not.
