Found a 2 year old bottle at a store in West Hempstead NY. Got it back to the hotel, chilled it for a bit, took the cage off and the cork shot off. This beer was true funk, a little bitter, a little spice, but it would have made George Clinton proud. Could barely pour this stuff with all the white billowy head. Now I need to find a young bottle to compare to.

Bottle (bomber). Poured cloudy, yellow, white head and spotty lacing and quite a bit of carbonation. Aroma of citrus fruit, wheat and some hops. Taste is both a bit tart and bitter, spices, and citrus notes are predominant but there is also some wine flavors; a bit funky too. Interesting beer with a nice finish. Very drinkable.

Bottle thanks to mrebeks (I think) for sharing. Pours pale yellow with a huge fizzy head that fades to a messy ring. Huge brett-y aroma with citrus and oak. Tastes like sweat, wet grass, barnyard, peppercorns, coriander and tropical fruit. Super dry finish. Interesting beer. I would’ve rated it higher but that extremely dry finish was just a little too much for me.

There is no way this should be classified as an IPA, I mean, sure it says it in the bottle. But in reality this is a Brett superstar. Pours golden, slim creamy white head. Nose is a nice citrus base. Taste follows, light underlying sweetness. Light sourness undulates. Light body, this is fantastic.

Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, lemon peel, light brett, and a hint of lime. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a ton finger white head that fades to a thin film. There’s a lot of thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with starts with citrus with a hint of banana. The finish has moderate floral notes, orange peel, and a hint of brett. It’s light bodied with moderate-lively carbonation.

Hop aroma apparent from feet away. Fluffy white head. Spicy Belgium nose, saison like. Very aggressive with tons of flavor.

cobaink2 (51) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2014
little bit of tart from the funkiness and a slight hop character. very nice champagne yeast. a touch of the aging on the back end. lots of good things here. i would have preferred a little more hop profile from the galaxy.

2012 bottle. The cork shot out of this like crazy as soon as I removed the cage, but the beer didn’t gush, must be the Brett going crazy after 2 years in the bottle. This was an amazing beer, pale straw in the glass with tall fluffy head, sweet yeasty aroma, complex and fruity taste with a slight spice background., still had some good hop presence after 2 years. The adjuncts worked perfectly here, not too overpowering, the same for the Brett and wine yeast. I’m not normally a fan of Belgian style IPA’s, or Belgian beers for that matter, but would definitely recommend this for the IPA drinker after something a little bit special.

Poured in a tulip glass from a bottle. Butterscotch color. Nice head. Poured hazy, giving off a floral aroma, but citrus dominates. There is a lemon flavor that is quite strong along with grassy overtones. Very smooth.
