750 ml bottle shared at one of Hellbilly’s tastings - Pours a hazy light golden color with a one finger thick white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma and flavor is mostly esters and spice. There is a light amount of sourness to this beer. A nice beer.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Should have pine tar. But still, there’s a band aid aroma over light tropical citrus. Bright gold and a fluffy white head. Strong singular brett character, light and summery.

Pours light golden with a massive soapy white head. The head releases an enticing aroma of sweet citrus and brett earthiness. Taste- brett plays a big role in this brew- very very dry, some alcohol heat, and lots of barnyard. Leather, rope, spice. There is still some fruity sweetness from the malt. Reminds me a lot like Jolly Pumpkin product. Mouthfeel is spritzy from the high carbonation. Drinkability is good, but my only complaint is the booziness.

Shared at DLD. Body is golden brown with a nice white head. Aroma is very citrusy, with a bit of spice in the back end. Light, crisp body--refreshing. Plenty of carbonation--normally throws me off--but it works well here. The flavor is light lemon/citrus flavors with bready yeast notes and some very light black pepper.
