3.14/5  rDev -27.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

This one pours an exceptionally light straw yellow, it basically looks like Miller Lite. There's a small head, and not a lot of lacing.

Smells like sour lemon and some light grassiness, but not a whole lot else- this smells quite muted.

This is really, really puzzling. There's a nice sour tart lemon flavor up front, tastes pretty hoppy, and mildly sour, but then the flavor just drops off absolutely and completely. It's so watery, and disappointing. This can't be as it was intended- the look was certainly off, and the taste was off- I have to wonder what happened here.

This is super light bodied- it's very drinkable, because it tastes practically like water. The carbonation is smooth.

This is exceptionally disappointing. There has to be some bottle variation.

Pretty disappointed with this one. The mouthfeel is completely null and void. Decent amount of green apple and acidity but the body is so light, it feels flavorless. I love Crooked Stave but I have a hard time understanding this one

This is really refreshing, it's light and effervescent. It's pretty one dimensional compared to the original lbrett. Did a side by side comparison between the two and they both had their strong points: This one was light and zesty where the other was full bodied and tart

This is the L'Brett d'Or dry hopped with simcoe--I believe.

A golden color pour, a bit murky. Soft white head, a bit more pronounced than other CS beers. Must be the hops, money.

Aroma is pleasant with a touch of musk. Fruity and floral. The hops give it a nice pine touch that goes well with the aging.

Flavor is subtle orchard fruits. Some apple, peach, dirty orange and crabapple. Somewhat 'green'. Some puckering, but nothing sour. Dry and acidic on the end. Easy drinking.

Bottle opened on 3.12.13

A - Pours a cloudy darker orange with an active fizzy light tan head that fades quickly.

S - Funk, Brett, Hops, pears, subtle citrus-unique and nice.

T - Brett, oak, hoppy-grass, citrus, buttery wood.

D - Mild carbonation with a medium body.

O - A very unique and delightful beer. It's a hard one to place at this point, but who cares, it is good.
