Draft at Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours a hazy dark golden with a white thick head. Nose is brett, bread, fruity, with hints of peaches, lemons, and some floral notes, even chamomile. Slight funk and a nice tart acetic kick, but still so very drinkable. Could drink it all day.

Drake (7950) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of heavy brett… basement, horseblanket, lots of funk. Some mile fruitiness. The taste is pale malts, earth, vegetal notes, candied citrus and a funky brett finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation, lingering funkiness. Awesome beer.

Tap at barcade, pours hazy golden with light head and not much lacing or head at all. Aromas and flavor of peachy brett, wood, lemons, oak, white wine and vanilla. Medium body with light carbonation. Nicely done just needed a bit more funk and body.

bmerz (666) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Draught at Breukelen Bier Merchants. Pours light hazy golden with no head or lace. Almost still. Aroma is big apple and light funk. Flavor is sweet juicy citrus, apricot, light funk, herbal and long clean bitter finish. Feel is watery, cool, lightly astringent, and more lively than it looks. Really good, refreshing, easy.

Hair6a11 (1270) - Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2013
On tap at the Local Option : Pour is fairly clear golden with a frothy white head in this glass - it retains fairly well, with some sticky lace present ; the nose is juicy fruit, apricot, bready malts - the flavor profile has an insane juicy fruit / apricot pit / musty brett thing going on along with some tropical notes present - its soft initial, mild brett, little to no sour, but this thing came out as one of the most unique brews ive ever had so far - bravo
