Bottle; a dark, dull gold. Brett aroma that smelled a bit like dirty diaper (albeit I am new to Brett). Flavor was bretty, tarty and a bit hoppy. Didn’t come together to well for me.

Pours a lightly hazy gold with white head. A citrus hop and fruit aroma. A nice mix of flavors for a hop head having a sour - citrus hops, light tasty fruit malts, and pine. A lingering bitter hop taste with some fruity malts.

neepsntatties (1714) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2016
On tap at Crooked Stave. Colour...cloudy gold with a thick head. Nose...lightly funky and definitely bretty with some horse blanket and then loads of fruity hops. Palate...brisk, fresh and inviting with tart and tangy bretty notes and crisp, zippy hops. The mid palate is full and round and the finish is delightfully tangy and taut.

Bottle courtesy of Andrew, shared with friends. Bottled July 2015. Cloudy orange bright, white resistant foam. Nose: orange peel, new leather shoes, a bit herbs/sage. Mouth: Brett is mild and elegant, tart in a proper way, light pepper. Great. Thank you Andrew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stevoj (3771) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2016 Draft at Old Chicago-Lakewood. Listed as sour/wild, but falls neatly into the Belgian IPS panel style. Yeasty notes, with the hop selection make for a fruity, snappy, floral mix. Mellow aroma leads into a folder flavor, finishes with a tingle. Nice.

Enjoyed on tap at Ale House in Grand Junction, CO. I didn't take tasting notes, but remember this being a very nice moderately hopped IPA with one of the best balances of Brett yeast I've noticed in a beer. Pretty good stuff, would have again.

Bottle. Moderate funk, some stinky overripe stone fruit. Bright medium straw color. Mild rounded funkiness. light tart fruit, some umami or saltiness, and light peach pit bittering in finish. Thin body, with small tingly carbonation, and moderate astringency. Very smooth all around, fruity and well balanced.

Bottle. Funky ass citrus nose, grapefruit, huge brett. Pretty pastel yellow, tall head, oily, silky, soft. Somewhat sweet, lemony, a bit of lacto, bretty funk. Good.
