On tap at The Alchemist last weekend. Pours a pale golden color with a bit of haze and a light white head. Bit of lacing as it goes down. The nose brings a bit of sweetness and the Brett comes through slightly. There’s some light citrus there as well. The flavor contains mostly some citrus plus rind and a bit of grainy malt sweetness. The Brett presence is small, coming through mostly in the finish. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Pretty interesting, but not something I’d go back to very often. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-01-2011

Cask. Very hazy gold, ¼ inch white head. Smell of orange, light coriander. WOW!! Taste is a light banana with a light brett in the finish. Very light, smooth, easy to drink. Medium in body. High drinkability. I drank my pint in less than 4 minutes. Awesome day at the brew pub with LiteWait. Big beer vacation!

cask. Very hazy gold, ¼ inch white head. Smell of orange, light coriander. WOW!! Taste is a light banana with a light brett in the finish. Very light, smooth, easy to drink. Reminds me of a banana popsicle. Medium in body. High drinkability. I could have had several more. Enjoyed with AirForceHops.

Draft at brewpub, citrus aromas, cloudy pour (mine was from the cask) .The Bretts were light enough to appeal to the masses, yet still bring sour to the table. Nice clean finish, a perfect summer beer.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a cloudy yellow amber in color with a foamy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma was citrus/lemony with a hint of spicy hops. Flavor was fairly sour with lots of citrus... characteristic of the Brettanomyces that John uses to ferment this brew. Unlike other "wild yeast" brews that I have had here, this one did not appeal to me all that much... just too sour.

Sammy (8406) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2008
On tap at the brewery,rotating. IBU listed was...2! BRETT, yeast, sugar. Lots of lace from a cloudy cloudy orangey with a white head. Lemony, a fine refreshing clean finish. Would I love to have this again.
