Another old rating found at the house under Brett’s Rye.dark brown pour small tan head light lacing. Veery mild aroma light wheat some raw grains. Melow smooth well coated palate. Wow odd balance of flavor not like a rye or brett .. Some light almost smoke comes through a lingeringly active tongue is fairly tingly. Hints of raw grain hard to pick out the details but delicious.

On tap at Eccentric Café. Hazy amber with a thin layer atop. Aroma is funky and dusty with rye, fruits and herbal notes. Taste is semi-wild with plenty of fruit and tannins, rye, caramel and eucalyptus. A bit gritty.

tectactoe (1441) - Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Tap: Pure copper with an ever-so-slightly off-white head that litters the sides of the glass with spotty lacing. Aroma is a bit sour & sweet, fruity and dense with some old cork funk to it. Not much rye on the nose, just a little dryness perhaps. Taste starts with a touch of leafiness and leads into lots of fruit. Light strawberry, orange, and other slight berry flavors. Sweetness turns into a snappy tartness with a good amount of Brett-like funk. Yeast, old, soaked cork, musty, damp wood, a little barnyard-esque. Heavy rye in the finish, a little toasty and dry. Not quite a sour and not quite a rye beer - a little of both I guess. Pretty good, unique and tasty.

For a funk beer (not my style at all) this one isn’t too bad. Not my style though...

Pint at the Eccentric Cafe on 3/30/13. Clear amber pour with a thin beige head. Aroma of bretty funk, lemon citrus and malt. Malty and bretty funky flavor with some caramel before a bready finish. Different, and tasty.

DesertDevil (487) - Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2013
On tap during the Bell’s Eccentric Cafe event at the Hungry Monk. Spicy nose, very bready with toasted cereal, caraway, and citrus. Pours a cloudy dark mandarin color with a frothy head. Muted citrus, fresh bread, a hint of Brett sourness, and some slight rye flavor. Light body, extremely drinkable.

Very nice to see a Bells brett beer. And a good example of the style - mildly funky, with good malt balance and solid but unobtrusive hops. Tasty.
