sherm1016 (1230) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Draft at the Ginger Man NYC. Pours a clear, pale yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma leaps out of the glass, yeast, Brett, pineapple, light grapefruit. Medium on the palate with big, soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, light bread, loads of Brett yeast, some bitter grapefruit, with a sharp, Brett finish. Really interesting.

Pyobon (1060) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2015
(On Tap) Clear golden yellow with slight white head. Aroma is almost perfumey with strong fruit (peach) and floral notes. Light body, good carbonation. Taste is citrus, yoghurt, pepper, fruity. Quite pleasant, but a bit odd.

radarsock (1112) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 31, 2015
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 Had on tap at the Ale House. $6.50 for the full pint. To tulip, it pours an effervescent light orange with which a trim, white head 1 finger in length stood.
Aromas of horse blanket, cilantro, dried spearmint, sourdough, English noble hops, wool, and some brief citrus/lime meat.
Tastes much the same with the addition of cracked white pepper, sweat, and cherry tomatoes.

A little table sugar experienced by swallow followed by a pleasing crisp dryness alongside hints of coriander and mint.
Easily palatable, but also a fairly typical Allagash wild.
Liked that the abv was so attractively low (4.5% listed on menu)

bennetporter (251) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours a hazy dark straw from a tap. Aroma is a blend of piney hops, some slight malt with a hit of sweat sock funk on top. Flavor is kind of the same. Interesting.

Draft at timothys. Pours hazy yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma has citrus and a little funk. The taste has a light tartness on top of a juicy citrus. Well done

radagast83 (5417) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a semi-clear golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was funky with plenty of tropical fruits! Flavor was about the same, with some light resin notes in the finish. Beer is not balanced (good), as it’s light on the malt backing, providing a light, very hopped beer with a good amount of Brett dusty funk.

kraddel (4490) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2015
Pours rather clear blonde, no real head. Smell is funky. Taste is dry, funky brett, very light mouthfmeel and thus easy drinkable. Some sweetness from the malts has lasted as well. Good beer

arminjewell (8462) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pour on tap at Stout, very hazy golden-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big mango, pineapple, passion fruit into some nice grass, slight bready and biscuity notes with a hint of sweet vanilla, touch of funk. Taste was big tropical fruit, passion fruit being the dominant character into some orange, slight biscuit, bread, touch of earthy funk, finishing slightly tart, slightly dry. Very tasty.
