illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden amber with a white head. Awesome aroma of fresh hops and a hint of funk. Medium bodied with semi soft carbonations. Nice pale malt backdrop that really showcases the Galaxy hops, which are loaded with exotic fruit goodness. Finishes semi dry and spicy. The brett character is young, but in this case- works perfectly by emphasizing the hops and not drying it out too much. I am shocked at the low ratings. One of my favorites of the tasting, and perhaps a top 10 IPA for me. Loved it.

BrettGT (75) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2016
Aroma of barnyard, wet hay, pineapple, nectarine, pepper. Pours light hazy yellow like unfiltered apple juice, big foamy champagnesque white head. Taste is medium bitter, lightly sweet, pretty funky. Light to medium body, thin texture, almost fizzy carbonation, ends funky and a little bitter. You get the pepper corns on the tongue too in a pleasant way. Complex and interesting.

Maarten1993 (798) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2016
Drank during the american beer tasting at Marks place 23-4-2016. Interesting. Hoppy, very fresh, bitter with a bit of sourness. Rich beer.

yngwie (16248) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 23, 2016
Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours a hazy pale golden body under a big, foamy white head. Thereís lots of lemony brett in the aroma, with pine cones, pineapple, some candied peach, hints of leather and barnyard and a faint grassy touch. Notes of mandarine and also a whiff of pale malts. Even some gooseberries. Itís dry and rather effervescent on the palate, medium to full-bodied, almost tart. Lemon, pineapple, candied peach, some funky flavors and a really fine bitterness in the flavor. Everlasting fruity and bitter finish with funkyness and a faint peppery hint. Itís perhaps a bit too enthusiastic awarding a 9 for flavor, itís not at the same level as the aroma, especially not initially, but the finish is just lovely. It sure deserves a very high rating. I could easily accept this as a regular beer. 160423

Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a long dry, bitter, funky, brett, mango, pineapple, citrus, grapefruit, pepper and yeasty finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Alusmamuts (1375) - LATVIA - APR 20, 2016
Pale golden with rich white head. Slightly fruity aroma. Strong bitterness on the background of wit beer and lambic taste. Some spiciness (coriander?). Lasting bitter aftertaste deeply in the throat.

oldrtybastrd (4465) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with big fluffy head. Aromas of tropical fruits, grass, and some brett funk. Flavors are all tropical, grassy, yeasty, with some lingering funk.

Fatehunter (2051) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours a bit foamy head (half the pint glass) on the lightest straw body. The aroma is a big hit of spices and flowers. Nice. The taste is fairly clean, a little spice, mellow fruits and finishes with a mild lemon bitterness. The texture is crisp. The aroma is great, the flavor may get better with age.

sulawang (901) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Visual: Twisty wire cap and composite cork. Pours light straw yellow with huge slowly dissipating creamy bubbly head, torrents of fast activity, small bits of sediment. Nose: kumquat banana wheat malt, traces of funk, quite bright. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: fizzy-bubbly wholeness, Mid-palate: (lvl-4)-sweetness, sharp sour-tangy acidity, (MAIN) background funk, juicy kumquat citrus, banana wheat malt -> dry hoppy bitter Finish: light oak, coriander, dry wheat, lingering bitter hops, kumquat exhale, background peppercorn spice, burpy. Summary: Very refreshing with a boatload of flavours to discover all the while backed up by a very bubbly mouthfeel. Although only medium-bodied, it delivers in smooth transitions and enticing complexity.

jb (2756) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2016
That wonderful characteristic Galaxy nose. Tropical and citrus fruit. Very hazy and pale. Appearance is not this companies strong suit. Palate is brilliant. Soft sweet then syrupy with tingly carbonation and pepper finish. Very subtle. Real good.

TheJester (2379) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
650 mL bottle. Banana Popsicle yellow with a big, rocky white head. As close to Orval as Iíve ever tried. Yeah. Great hopping.
