Consumed December 22nd, 2013 at Blue Palms Brewhouse, Hollywood, CA.

Appearance: medium yellow with fine white head. Some active carbonation.

Aroma of wild, slightly musty, tart, sour, old sock funkiness. But moderate.

Beer is slightly cheesy tasting, slightly tart. A little sour. Bitter on finish. Soft Belgian flowery yeast in the middle.

Medium mouthfeel.

This is a win, except in the refreshment department; it's a bit heavier than most saisons. The alcohol is well-hidden, though.

EDIT - 12/28/2015 - The bottled version is superior in every way. Bottle dated "best by 03/2020".

From a 750 ml bottle (best by December 20, 2018) into a tulip.

A-A normal pour produces a compact head of dense, white foam that peaks at about a finger and a half. The retention is good at roughly three minutes, and lacing is left behind on the glass. The brew is murky and pale honey in color.

S-The aroma is slightly zesty with citrus, green apple, pear, and a light, funky kick. The beer has a bready, doughy malt base. The aroma is mild, but a nice fit for the style.

T-The taste is a balanced mixture of brett flavors and mild funk. I taste pineapple, a bit of lemon, tree fruit like green apples and pear, as well as a bit of floral flavor. The fruit and flowers mingle nicely with a relatively dry, bretted-up, bready malt base. The finish is heavier on the brett and drying.

M-The feel is medium body with a smooth carbonation. Very drinkable.

O-I was excited to try this beer and it did not let me down. The mouthfeel is really nice and drinkable, and it pairs well with the flavor profile here. This is a very balanced beer with a subtle complexity that doesn't hit you over the head with flavor, but still provides plenty to think about on the palate. Unlike a lot of brett beers, i could drink this regularly and repeatedly and not get tired of it.

Light, mildly funky nose and floral, crisp, mildly funky taste. I didn't really have any expectations either way for this brew, but I was so impressed I went out and bought another one immediately. Looking forward to checking out more from these folks.
