Poured from a recently purchased bottle into the task glass ,
A - Beautiful straw colored backdrop lots of carbonation feeds pillow white head .
S- Dusty grains some winter wheat a lot of yeast character with hints of lemongrass , The most gentle thread of tart funk also in mix
T - Warm sourdough, green melon, a touch of pine apple, rather muted
M - Excellent feel the carbonation adds a nice cleaning quality linger is again with the dusty grains
O - an interesting offering from the talented Brewer I have another bottle of that I’m gonna let rest and see if some tartness doesn’t develop

Not a Belgium lover. Something off / odd about the after taste. Funky. Up front is yeast and bread as you would expect... But then funk. All else is good. Not one I would order again.

On tap at Three Penny Taproom, Montpelier VT. This was poured into a flared tulip. The appearance was a muddy burnt orange almost brown color with a good finger’s worth of white foamy head. Dissipates mildly and leaves some stringy lace here and there. The aroma yields to a crisp Belgian sweet to spicy coriander to Apple spice to bready malts. Some sticky pear. Sweet to semi-bitter grassy-like hops. The flavor marries it all together, bringing about the spices and the bready/yeasty Belgian malts to gloss over and slide on into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a great sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation felt good all around. Overall, pretty nice Belgian ale that I would have again.

On tap at Zero Gravity. Clear golden amber. Smell is fruity and bretty. Brett is even a little acidic. Taste is sharp brett up front. Light tartness. Then sweet malt. Earthy brett and a fruity yeasty finish. Lightly bitter. Medium body. Good. Maybe not quite my jam. Interesting take, but just a bit rough around the edges.

From the growler, it pours a lovely golden amber with a small head. Lightly woodsey in the nose, with some malt and hops thrown in. Very mildly sour on the tongue, enough to entice but not overwhlem. Enjoyable and repeatable!

cool beer, a special for the vermont brew fest. its sort of a belgian pale, biere de garde type hybrid brew, with brett. the brett had me intrigued, but its really young and undeveloped, super mild, like just pitched sort of thing, or like all the fermentables were already out of it by the time they added it. the base beer is nice though, really full bodied with a unique herbal yeast profile and a long bready finish. more malty than expected for its pale golden color, and clear for a brett beer, but very heady with a full inch of white foam that doesnt fade at all. the yeast is the main flavor agent here, but the beer unfortunately isnt all that complex. i sort of expected something more unique and dynamic, but it never really opens up that way. time might serve this well, the brett could get some work in, funk it up a little bit. it also had an apparent lack of hops for me, there was some dried grassy bittering agents here, but no flavor or aroma hops going on at all. i liked the beer very well as a belgian, but as a brett beer, it left a lot to be desired. i think its cool for late summer early fall though, and may evolve relatively quickly. fuller body and great carbonation, a very satisfying drink with their new vermont maple sausage pizza, the best pizza pie on the planet!
