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.

Bottle a few times now. Most recently on the train during the IoW Jolly Day thanks to Mads. It pours cloudy golden with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, wood, funk, barnyard, some sherbet, light sweetness, brett and citrus peel. The taste is bitter, funky, earthy brett, wood, citrus peel, sherbet, pineapple, minerals, lemon, brioche and mine must with a dry, earthy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Balanced and rather delicious. Delectable!

2014-08-08. Lightly hazy pale yellow body with a large foamy white head that fades. Aroma is relatively mild at first with moderate hops and musky funky brett. 7+ Flavour is moderately bitter throughout, musty Brett throughout, lemon notes. Average plus bodied palate, carbonation is effervescent. Very refreshing and drinkable. Quite nice. Bottle via trade with Duffman

[Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a murky yellow with a huge fizzy semi-lasting white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus, some spices, a good amount of herbs and some hops. Flavour is yeasty, herbal and spicy along with some alcohol, dry hops and a moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. Good, not great.

RRistow12 (242) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with nice white head. Aroma is sour and funkiness. Some lemon and orange peel. Taste is mild to moderately bitter with a moderate to heavy sourness. Citrus flavors, belgian spices and funk, orange peel, wheat. I'm not a huge fan of sours and love IPAs so this was interesting. I'd say it's good for a sour but not a great IPA if you love IPAs. Definitely interesting and I'm glad I tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

hfmejias (711) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUL 18, 2014
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.
