Pouring at The Festival in Portland with Kramer, Andrew, and J-Dadmond. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Funky with musk and citrus hops. Medium bodied, citrus and light brett. Dry, more citrus and toast. Bright lemon and touches of acid. Tart and funky, toast and grapefruit. Beautiful.

Hazy golden body, tropical fruits, citrus, pear, light funk, and must. Medium to light bodied, appropriate carbonation, nice light acidity and tartness that plays nicely with the hops.

heemer77 (5185) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bottle shared by adnielsen. The body was light and hazy yellow. I smelled a bright earthy and perfumed nose of grapefruit and earthy leather. There was also wood, dough and almonds. This tasted very bitter of grapefruit with a woody note throughout. There was some a grapefruit finish. Nice.

mansquito (4196) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn 375ml ($9): Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is flowers, perfume, brett, lemon, other citrus, yeah a bunch of stuff. Taste is bitter, slightly sour, then just a wee bit sweet. Mouth feel is perfect and the carbonation makes your mouth tingle and lets the aftertaste linger with a gentle astringency. This is an excellent beer to sip, but similarly an excellent beer to drink many of in large quantities. Too bad it is so fucking expensive. At least it was superb.

tom10101 (4004) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
From bottle @ The Festival (Portland). Hazy yellow with a small persistent white head and little lacing. Aroma is really enticing with brettanomyces, perfume hops, citrus/tropical fruits, light tartness and subtle earthy notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with brettanomyces, citrus/tropical fruits, caramel, herbs and light acidic presence. Medium body. Slightly dry. Moderate carbonation. Great balance between hops and brettanomyces that result in a refreshing American Wild Pale Ale.

Bottle from arminjewell. Pours hazy gold with white head. Nice funk is the highlight of the aroma, really a cool beer. The brett and hops work well together, good work guys.

Doofgoblin (438) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2013
The tartness is the best part. Nice carbonation with the tropical tartness, earth esters, paired with some subtle hop notes. Seems to be more along the lines of a wild ale. It’s a little pricey, but worth a taste...it’s always good to have just the right amount of: don’t give a...

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 At the festival with Andrew and jay. Pours a lightly hazy golden body with light lacing. Aroma is super fresh Brett and fresh citra hops. Mouthfeel is medium to thin super sessionable with notes of citra, light funk, light pine and grass. Awesome pale.
