4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hellgelb, trüb mit reichlich Schaum. Kumquatsaroma (Orange, Mandarine) mit Aromahopfen. Säuerlich-fruchtiger Antrunk, schön trockener Beginn. Koriander und reichlich Würze im Geschmack. Klingt staubtrocken und leicht holzig aus. Superber Stoff!

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Sad to say this $$$ bottle went down the drain. Neither me or my wife could take more than a couple of tastes. I know this has Brett in it but it seems way too unbalanced to be enjoyable. If you like licking wet horse hair then by all means get this one. Very carbonated, has some nice additions to it and those flavors come out in the tasting, but the Brett is so overpowering that I can't focus on the underlying flavors.

Cork literally flew off. Light yellow, big head. Funky barneyard, hops, oak, chardonnay. Extremely dry, long bitter finish. Very funky and well made. Awesome stuff

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a very hazy, pale gold with a huge, frothy, white head. Big, bitter orange aromas, with a herbal note and some minerals. The flavor is very bitter, with a significant sourness. Light to medium body, very sticky, and weakly effervescent. Overall, this is a flavorful and delicious IPA, with a light body and good spicy flavor. Unfortunately, this is sticky mess, with the hops overpowering the wine and wit notes.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle purchased at whole foods for $16-18. No date on bottle. Cork flys off with authority! Fantastic aroma! Hoppy mild aroma with some funk and wine melding perfectly. Massive fluffy head but little lacing. Mouthfeel is dry but a bit too fizzy. Taste is dry with a goo dose of galaxy hops. Funk is present but not overpowering. Definite medicine flavor too. Very mild spiced flavor as well. Overall, an interesting beer but not fantastic. Lots of good flavors but just don't meld perfect.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with full head. Aromas of brett, cellar, coriander, malts, yellow fruit and a bit of white pepper. A lot going on. Tons of carbonation. Acrid and funky; must be the brett, but initial flavor is a shock - what comes to mind is urine; must be the kumquats. After that, flavors of malts, citrus, and coriander. But every sip is still a shock. Could have been great...

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750mL, Batch 2: With a pop of the cork I’m on my way to my first rating after a couple years of rating burnout...
Pours a beautiful cloudy, pale yellow w/ a gigantic white head that recedes to a marshmallow like lump in my glass.
Aroma: A mix of grass, citrus, wheat, spices & a slight funk. Very earthy, love it.
Flavor: Bitter citrus, wheat character & spice. Very dry w/ a long bitter finish. Lots of carbonation as well. The subtle type, not overbearing.
This is one of those beers I saw, passed over, couldn’t stop thinking about & went back for a couple days later. Glad I did because this one is full of awesome!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 750 ml corked bottle. A lightly hazy pale yellow beer, with a gigantic, fizzy/frothy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (bread/grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, grapefruit, lemon), moderately yeasty (barnyard), with notes of orange, tangerine, lavender, rosemary, pepper, coriander, some banana and white wine. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, dry and rather long finish with moderate bitterness, lightly alcoholic. A bit of each IPA and Wit, but actually few features of both styles. Whatever it is, it’s great... Fruity and spicy aroma, clean and balanced in the mouth. Mouthfeel could be slightly improved, since it’s a bit thin and perhaps overcarbonated. Overall a masterpiece
