Pours blond with no head. Aroma is of fruits, sligth bretts. Taste is of sligth bretts, wine, fruits, citrus, some acidity. malt, sweet. Overall: Good body. Not bad, but I wonder where went the head. Not enough bretts in there, makes it almost dull.

pours cloudy orange. Clean bready and yeast aroma. Foamy white, dissipating head. Medium body, wheat and clove like notes, with a hint of finishing sourness. Classic Brett barnyard characters all the way through

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle-Thanks to Dakine and Ibrew2or3 for these bottles-Pours lightly hazy orange with a fizzy champaign like white head. the head was gone in a matter of seconds. nose is very strong estery (banana, clove), fresh bret funk, lightly musty, somewhat phenolic. Not what i was expecting actually. flavors of phenolic spice, dry malt husks, and a touch of dry bret character however, its not all that present. tastes more like a standard BSA with a dose of brett for good measure. I hope the bret will continue to grow in the beer. finish is very husky (clean belgian pale grains) with a touch of horseblanket/hay. Decent yet somewhat disappointing.

Dark gold, excellent head. Some spices in the flavor and the brett is not overdone (thank goodness!). They’ve achieved a nice balance of brett/hops/malt with this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is orange and mostly clear, showing only a mild haze. Atop the beer rests a thin white head. The aroma offers apples, malt, brettanomyces, light spice. The flavor is ok. A bit malty, with some well water character. Brett is there, but this beer seems to play it safe. A tiny bit of tangy citrus with an apple juice finish. Maybe this will improve with age, but even so, this is a step (or more) behind many other notables in this genre.

Picked up at SL... Golden blonde/orange-ish color. Decent head. Nose of of a slight tartness and spices. Taste follows the nose. Slight tartness with a spicyness to it. Lite fruits, grassy and earthy/dirt taste. Dry, light and refreshing. Nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden pour with a coarse white head. Aroma of hay, old dough, lemons, and light spice. Obviously lots of Brett. Flavor presents more of a malt than than I expected, sweet grains, lemons, dough and spice. Solid carbonation, crisp and a drying finish. Not bad, lacking some complexity.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep orange with active carbonation and white head that explodes, then dissipates. Dried citrus, light spice, and a little leather. Flavor is dried orange/apricot/pear, light spice, and citrus. Lightly sour lemon. Nice and dry with a small amount of citrus sour and leather lingering. Quite enjoyable.

Pours a cloudy gold with a dissipating white head and aroma of yeast, fruit, and spices. Taste is complex and sweet, of yeast, fruits, spices, citrus, and grass with a tart, sour finish. Nice wild ale and a collaboration that lived up to the billing.
