Light peach, hazy with no head with a small rim of tiny bubbles on the side.
Huge fruit aroma. Smells like a sour. Yeast.
Taste like a sour. Huge citrus fruit. Mostly lemon !
Sour feel. Dry to the taste. Lasting fruity hops.
Belgium Triple? Lambec perhaps?
Either way, refreshing.

There's nothing Earth-shattering about the look. It's an attractive faded peach color, almost a milky gold like a wit. It's quite hazy. There's no head. There is a small film of white bubbles but nothing to constitute a head. A swirl livens the bubbles, but it dies quickly and leaves barely enough to call it lacing.

The nose is genius. Loads of yummy fruit come wafting from the snifter...orange, pineapple, and that crazy, funky Brett yeast. Just an amazing scent.

Sadly, the taste doesn't match the expectation. It's all hops and yeast. With the exception of orange rind and some yeasty pepper spice, ere's little else.

You expect a bit of sweetness from the way it smells bit you never get it. Extremely tart and mouth puckering, like a kriek. Not so much bitter as it is tart. A little heat from the high alcohol and the spicy yeast. Not an easy drinker.

Overall, it's very disappointing from the initial characteristics. Another swing and a miss from this brewer. I try to like them but I just don't.

Purchased from the bottle line at Hill Farmstead for around $12. Poured into teku glasses and shared. A hazy dull yellow with a persistent tight white head of fine bubbles. Aroma is at first funky and barnyard followed by lemon, yeast and reminds you of a nice Napa chardonnay. Taste is delicious with light citrus, buttery white wine, tropical fruits and yeasty bread. Mouth is medium body, medium-high carbonation, and well-hidden ABV. Overall, this is a fantastic bretted triple....a very unique and pleasant beer.

Poured from the 750 into a stemmed tulip.
Pours a clear medium straw color with one finger of head.
Aromas are twangy brett funk with wine quite present.
Taste is very much in line with aromas. Good brett flavor, tart and lots of oak and chardonnay.
Finishes dry and clean.
Overall, this beer is very flavorful. It's complex and it's quenching. I love brett's and I loved this beer.

Peach, pear, sweat, lemon, and brett in aroma.

Flavor is moderately lemony, with sweet pear esters, and a light musty funk. The brett is fairly restrained, allowing the Belgian esters to shine.
