Pours a hazy, slightly greenish yellow with a huge, chunky white head. Aroma is big on citrus, pepper and coriander, some funk, stone fruit, dusty grain and wet basement. Flavor is really something, it’s a bit hard to describe, some dusty grain, funk and vinous notes up front give way to lots of citrus and acidic hop bite, lots of tart and fruity notes, fantastic tooth melting hop acidity, coriander and pepper com in toward the middle, but aren’t nearly as prevalent as in the aroma. light to medium body with a strong, blanketing and fairly sharp carbonation, which fits the beer pretty well, helps to make this beer fairly refreshing for a 7%abv beer with so much intensity. Very, very good.

Been looking forward to this for a while, and it doesn’t disappoint. Pours straw yellow, with thin lacing head, good solid aroma of hops and brett. the taste is smooth and complex, surprisingly soft which must be down to the water profile. Overall and exceptional beer, if only I could get my hands on a few more bottles.

Blonde très pâle, jaunâtre et trouble. Extra mousseuse. Au nez, acide lactique de fermentation spontanée, citron, pin, conifère... En bouche extrêmement complète, l’amertume de zeste se marie a la perfection avec la douce acidité. Finale décapante de houblon résineux

Maxbier (527) - Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle. Light yellow with big white head. Aroma is big lemon brett funk. Up front is the sour funk, then herbal spoicy yeast flavors, hop bitterness, and a dry tart slightly spicy finish. Very nice..... not for everyone though.

matty (235) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2015
750 mL bottle. Batch #6, April 2014. Pours a hazy gold color with a thick white head. Plenty of carbonation rising to the top. Aroma has a lot going on: fruit, spice, grass/herbs, malt, sourness and some yeast. Medium bodied and a little sticky, the taste has a lot in common with the aroma but the yeast and grassiness seem to take over with a touch of wood and hops. The finish is a little sour with the malt making a bit more of a presence after the swallow along with a touch of sweet wine. This is a good one!

Bottle. Batch #3 August 2012. Straw yellow, little hazy. Big white head. Aroma of pineaple, little citrus, yeasty, sweet. Dry mouthfeel. Almost no hops left in taste. Pretty bitter. Lots of brett.

lachrymalisis (415) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2015
killer aromas and flavors of mild wheat, earthy fruits, apricot, peach, fermenting yeast. exceedingly clean on the palate though with a beautifully expressive layer of aromatic Galaxy hop flavors of mango and tropical citrus.

750 ml bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A big funky citrus nose. Funky, dry lemons and oak, big citrus, the French oak is huge. Tropical notes, more dry oak. It works very well.

Awesome beer. Citrus, nice hops, not overpowering and well balanced. Bubbly head that stays throughout
