Cloudy gold pour with a 3 finger, fluffy off white head. Aroma is big on citrus, tropical fruit and cat box hops, sweaty bretty funk, green wood tartness, and some toasty wood notes. Flavor is full of sweaty brett funk up front, some fallen leaves earthy funk, sweaty dishwater, light, sort of sweet wood notes, lots of citrus and some tropical fruit and cat box hoppy notes, but not nearly as much as the aroma indicates. Light to medium body, neutral to dry entry, off dry finish and light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation. Really good stuff overall, after the first couple of sips the sweaty/dishwater notes die down and it is actually quite enjoyable.

Excited CS entered MN! This guy is super interesting, with a lot of funk and citrus but with a very dry bitter finish given the dry hopping. It’s almost too much of a medicinal herbal finish for me but I love that they went for it and still think it succeeds. Barnyard and earthy and solid overall.

Draft at world of beer denver. Aroma is pure saison funk, thin white head and hazy gold color. The hops balance nicely though are very subtle. Grass, citrus, lemon notes in the finish. Nice summer seasonal!

beerguy101 (5340) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Sampled on 6/22/15. This wild ale pours a cloudy yellow orange gold color from a 375ml bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head, The aroma is citrusy, bretty, fruity and tropical. A medium to light bodied wild IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet, tropical and peaches. The hops are citrusy and herbal. Lively carbonation. Bretty and a touch funky, but there is a whole lot else going on here. Nice mix of tropical and hops. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

EdKing (2232) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
Bottle in CBC Brixton. Almost clear medium to dark Amber with a large foam head. Nose is Brett yeasty, farmyard manure, light funk, lemon, some tropical exotic fruit, touch of papaya, grassy. Taste is tangy farmyardy Brett yeast, funky, fruit tangy, lychee, citrous and a bite of tropical and pine new world hops. Finish is very tangy and fruity but I’m not sure it’s all working in harmony.
