Draught @ Allagash: This one pours a very cloudy, light golden color. There was a small white head on it. Nice nose, with a bit of citrus to it. Some, but little of the Brett. Maybe some tropical fruit also. The taste is very good. Citrus, slight touch of the brett tartness. Medium to lighter bodied. Nice.

Leighton (11316) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Draft at Three Penny Taproom - Montpelier, VT. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a frothy white head. Big funk in here, some diapers, light straw, faint dough. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with lightly creamy pale bread, lasting manure, light grass, poo, horse stables, saddle leather. Not bad.

Very cloudy pale blonde pour with two fingers of white head. Very nice aroma, citrus and fruit skins with tropical notes and peppery brett and funk. Very dry and peppery with a slightly medicinal character. Very dry.

eaglefan538 (2897) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pour is pale white yellow with a nice white head that has great retention and leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruits with a dry bretty smell. Flavor follows, really brilliant fruity dominance with that lovely sour and dry and tasty and highly drinkable bretty and hoppy finish. Great stuff.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 19, 2014
On tap @ Beachwood BBQ. Milky straw pour with a finger of dense white foam. Great pear, peach skin, and golden plum on the nose. Super fruity and a touch musty. Slight green apple and some grapefruit zest. Subtle grass and musty funk. Nice melon and a hint of pineapple. Flavor has a really good fruitiness to it. Lots of melon, pineapple, pear, and plum. Slight lime zest, some grapefruit, and a mild sourness. Nice cracker and bread. Subtle sweetness. A touch of damp grass. Nice.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2014
8-10 draft pours at Samís Quik Shop in the past week. Pours pale yellow straw, medium cloudiness, steady white head, lots of sticky lace. Nose is bretty, lemon, light tropical fruits, pineapple. Really fantastic smell. One of my favorites in beer. Flavor is equally delish. Maybe a little on the bitter side, but overall this is a banging beer. One of the best Iíve ever had from this stellar brewery.
