Tasted from bottle obtained in a trade. Pours cloudy orange with a thick beige head that lasts for quite a while but finally leaves heavy lace. I really like the nose, with heavy brett funk, light sour fruitiness, some hops, and an almost plastic band-aid aroma. The flavors are a little bit closer to a traditional IPA with the brett underlying. There is good citrus and malt flavor with a bitter finish, but the brett ties it all together. It is fairly full-bodied and somewhat sticky with somewhat lower than average carbonation and a long bitter/funky finish.

Courtesy Beerlando. Hazy copper, cream carbonation. Nice combo of fruity, funky Brett and herbal, grassy, bitter hops. Dry, yeasty. Medium body, balanced. Great brew.

750ml caged and corked bottle. Thanks Josh for sharing. Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of fukiness, brett, earthy, leather, floral, and citrus. Tastes of the same funk, floral, citrus, pine, and brett. This one was very nice.

750ml bottle at the DC Local tasting. Pours a translucent orange with a cloudy white head. Aroma is tart, brett for sure, hay, grass, barnyard, dried hops, feet. Flavor is sweet, fruity, peaches, caramel, brown sugar, a little hop bitterness. Finish is slightly sweet, slightly funky.

Thanks to Dosbeerigos for sharing this one. Been an IPA fan for quite some time and now just starting to get into sours. This one is the best of both worlds. Hazy pour with a thin bubbly head. The aroma has a hoppy sour funk to it, canít really place all the aromas, but outstanding. Has a tart sour flavor, with a hoppy start with a bitter finish. Really enjoyed this one.

Damico (2613) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 The aroma of the infected yeast overpowers some citrus and pineapple notes. The brew pours golden orange with a very small head. The wild ale flavor from the yeast starts out strong and then leads to citrus flavors that settle with the hops on the tongue.

Hello, whatís this? An IPA with brett? Yep. Odd notion at first, with the tropical fruits and citrus/resin seeming to battle with the brett. The brett wins out, of course, but the hops arenít completely obscured. Some pineapple notes. Fruity and powdery, and dry as hell. Nice. Hazy orange pour. Many thanks to JCB for sharing.

Hazy amber color with a small, egg shell colored head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, wood, vanilla, floral hops, pine, caramel malts, and citrus. Taste of vanilla, citrus fruits, pine, tobacco, grapefruit, vanilla, brett, and wood, with a bit of alcohol too.

Thanks to Josh for sharing. Pours a hazy orange amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Nice brett aroma up front, floral, mango, earthy and orange. Flavor of bretty barnyard notes up front, floral nice aggresive hop bitterness, pine, grapefruit. Reminds me of an aggresively hopped Wild Devil.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2010
750ml bottle. Cloudy glowing orange with a frothy one finger thick off white head, some spotty lacing. Nose starts with brett funk giving way to floral hops and a strange metallic acidity. Flavor held big citrus with a decent amount of brett funk. Medium dry on the finish with assertive hop b itterness.
