Bottle 375ml from Henrik many thanks. A cloudy yellow beer with huge head. Nose is intense on grapefruit, a bit ugly. Aroma is brett like at the beginning with good malty notes, then a tart vomit like aroma comes with intense graprefuit notes. Near to dental infection, very unbalanced, horrible, why such a hops bouquet ?

Tasted on 2/19/13 from a capped 375mL bottle purchased at Jug Shop. Pours hazy light orange with a thick white head that leaves average lace and a messy lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is tropical fruit, citrus, and floral hops with some funky brett and plenty of sour citrus. The flavor is more sour lemon up front with the tropical fruit and citrus hops showing on the back with a bit of bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long sour tropical fruit finish.

375mL capped bottle into Lost Abbey teku. Big big big foamy heady atop a cloudy yellow body. Very pretty beer but that’s about where the complements end. THIS is HORRID. Ugh, did I get a bad bottle or is everyone taking crazy pills. Aroma starts with a fresh airy Brett yeastiness,. Then comes a horrible rancid Brett and chemical tones with cheesy hops. So much cheese and rancid hops. I’ll give it that there is a nice breezy aspect to the rancid oil and cheese. Mouthfeel is nicely light and bright but that just emphasizes the horrible chemical aftertaste. Oh finishes so solvent like and light lemon vinegar. Then bitter aftertaste. Man, this is the worst, what a waste of money and my time.

Bottle @ Vinoble Dalumvej, Odense. Pours hazy yellow Golden With a White creamy head. Amazing intense aroma. Oak, Brett, barnyard and fruity hops - mostly citrus. Flavor is just as intense and complex. Delicious and rather genius Wild ale.

mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle from Proof. Pours a very hazy golden yellow with hints of orange. The color of fresh pineapple. This bottle was alive. When I popped the cap off it started coming right out of the bottle. I had to pour immediately. Very large bubbly white head with hints of orange. Sticky in some areas of the glass, apparently this glass wasn’t cleaned well, my bad. Head retention is great, nice layer on top and thick collar at the edges of the glass. Aroma is very juicy. I smell fresh squeezed OJ and some mango and pineapple. Nice musty, barnyard like aromas as well. Taste is identical to the aroma. Juicy juicy juicy... Tart and tangy citrus with a little bit of dry yeast funk present throughout. Thick, creamy body. Feels almost like a nitro beer.

RasmusOtt (1415) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2014
POurs unclear golden with a beige head. Aroma has lots of floral notes, wild brett notes, barnyard, sweet citrus fruits, rural notes and hoppy. A little bit perfume and soapy notes - but not in a bad way (if that is possible). Taste is hoppy along with some tartness, barnyard, citrus fruits and rural barnyard notes. The sour and the bitter blends together really well in this beer!

Botella de 37.5 cl en el lúpulo 08-02-2014 en el momento. 6.2 vol. lote 3 de 2013 color rubio amarillento pálido con espuma blanca bastante persistente y con bastante gas. Aromas frescos de lúpulo y brettas bastante contenidos. Sabores algo cítricos y afrutados al principio seguidos de amargo verde y fresco que perdura bastante tiempo en boca. Cuerpo medio. Bastante buena. Interesante combinación ácida y amarga.

Bottle @CBC Clerkenwell thanks to Ben’s cuddly ginger bear (TheMuzz). Pours gold and clear, looks like you could just dive in and swim. Not a huge but you do get a big dollop of brett funk about it. On the palate spicy/hoppy/yeasty and great.
