Fritz123 (1274) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle from Luekens in Clearwater, FL. Poured into a snifter at home. Light, hazy color of gold and wheat chaff with a thick white pillow head. Head lasted and laced like crazy. The powerful aroma of brett, lemon citrus, grass, hay, cereal, and barnyard was amazing. The taste was the same with the brett dominant in creating a barnyard funk with the balanced malts to dial it down a little. So damn good. Light body, refreshing, dry, and crisp. I could drink this all day (with some TUMS of course.)

Idiosynkrasie (4575) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2014
375ml bottle. Almost clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Sourish, hoppy and bretty aroma. Taste is mildly sourish, slightly bretty, minimally citrusy hoppy. Not overly complex, disappointing.

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle to glass. Gold pour with a nice bone white head that has some staying power. Nose is lemon peel, tart, floral, and oak. Taste is full of sharp lemon peel, citrus, earthiness, some hop and hay bitterness and a nice dry finish.

Terminus (3318) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle at a friends house snowed in dc pours hazy orange with a small fizzy white head and no lacing. Nose is funky and soapy at the same time. Hmm wierd but I like it. Flavors are soapy hoppy and lots of funk. Almost plastic notes. Long citric and soapy finish with lingering notes of funk. Very cool funky pale ale here! Dint know where the soapy notes came from.

Countbeer (5043) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle: Thanks Papsø: Served in a Chouffe glass: Big white foamy head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. Aroma is nice crispy with the brett. There’s some citrus and wood, stone and lemon, manure and flowers, cactus and soap, hops and smooth wild yeast. Flavours are a crispy mix of fruits like peach, apricot, some citrus, yeast, brett, dust, stone, flowers, some pine, some herbs, some bitters... Fruity, flowery, lovely! Aftertaste is a bit dry yeasty with hops, fruits, bitters and some malts. Low carbo, creamy foamy mouthfeel, good medium bodied and a creamy mouthfeel. Crispy, fruity with flowers and bitters. Good beer but absolutely no sour ale!

deyholla (7622) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a hazy yellowish gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of citrus with some tropical fruit, a bit of funk, tartness and a hint of earthy grain. Flavor has more of a tart tropical fruit and citrus combination with a a touch funk towards the finish.

Torrefacto (813) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 21, 2014
color dorado pálido, ligeramente turbio con abundante y densa espuma blanca. aromas afrutados, cítricos y tropicales con una presencia equilibrada del brett. En boca es ligera con un ligero picor de burbuja y un inicio afrutado al que le siguen los bretts. El final es amargo y seco, pero equilibrado y duradero. En el regusto hay también una acidez muy rica. Excelente.

rbrazell (1702) - Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle from Proof. Deep golden pour with a frothy white head. Big funky yeast aroma, oak, citrus rind, pizza shop, dried hops and sourdough, dry spicy and citrusy hops in the flavor with yeast fuck, sourdough, oak, touches of vanilla and lactic acid. Lively carbonation and bright slightly acidic citrus. Nice stuff.
