Got a wide range of reactions from the people I shared this with. Hazy yellow pour, frothy white head. The aroma was big time funky. Cheese and yeast with hints of citrus, cereal, leather, pepper, and spice. Medium and chewy. Big sour "brett" funkiness with a long bitter, hoppy finish. Great balance. One of the most unique beers I’ve tasted. Fantastic.

75 cl bottle @ home, no BBE info
Aroma has soapy citrus, some hops and urinal cake. Palate is rather high on CO2. Flavour is strong on earthy notes. Also lemon, grassy hops and some leathery notes. Nice hop bite occurs. A well hopped farmhouse saison but not IPA in any way.

tiong (4732) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 750ml bottle from Ales Unlimited, San Francisco, CA

Batch #1, Jan/2012 - Pours yellow with a bubbly head. Aroma of bretta, spices, yeast, malts and fruity hops. Taste of tart fruits, strong bretta notes, yeast, farmhouse notes and malts. Finish is bitter and hoppy with some tartness, yeasty farmhouse notes, fruits and grass. Okay, quite funky for an IPA, more like a saison/wild ale. 8-4-8-3-15 = 3.8

Re-rated on 5.5.2013. Tap @ Mikkeller Bar. Fresh and hoppy with loads of exotic fruits and a touch of bretta and wood. Bretta is quite subtle on this one. Excellent stuff, much better fresh.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
750 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, grassy hops, herbs and some citric tartness. Flavour of caramel, grassy hops, citric tartness, some spiciness, herbal notes and strong farmhouse notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and firm carbonation. Finishes dry, bitter and citrusy tart. Not really an IPA, more of a Saison or a strongly hopped Wit.

650 ml bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of yeast, spices, mild lemony fruits, soap and yeast. Flavor of grass, yeast, citrus fruits, toffee and mild grassy malts. Bitter palate with a fruity palate. More like an farm-house saison than an IPA.

crossovert (9190) - Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2012
750ml bottle. Second batch. The cork absolutely flies off with a boom. Be careful pouring this one, it is super-carbonated. It pours a lightly hazy gold with a big foamy white head that likes to linger. The smell is awesome. Clean brett notes, citrus, decent malt bill underneath. Oak mellows. The flavor is also good. Honestly the hops don’t come through much, it is more of a witbier with brett and citrus than anything but it is a refreshing take on it even with the odd experimentation. The Bitter Monk was unbelievable,the Whiteout Wit was horrendous, this is closer to Bitter Monk but not quite as awesome. The sweetness and oak come through with a few more sips. Brett is tame with a hint of funk and medicinal flavor, pretty low tartness. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-19-2012 00:57:01

750ml cork and caged bottle shared at Campground Brewdown. Poured an odd greenish/yellowish body with a large foamy white head with lots of rising effervescence. The aroma is super potent with notes of brett, dirty diaper, rotting fruit, dirty citrus rind, dirty hops. Light super fizzy body with a quick fading very dry aftertaste. Flavor of brett, lemons, bread crusts, funk, citrus. This beer has a lot going on with it, wonder what will happen to this with time.
