Bottle shared at Peg’s. Pale yellow pour with a white head. Floral aromas. Mildly sour with muted citrus, lemongrass, and brett notes. Very good mouthfeel. Good body. A bit hard to describe, but tasty nevertheless...

750 ml bottle shared by NielsenRatings - thanks, A-A-Ron! Pours a hazy, pale straw with a huge white head. Plenty of funk and florals in this, with straw, crackers, herbs, lemon, and some tropical fruits. Light-bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a tart, funky, bitter, sharp mouthfeel. Very good, but not one of my favorites from the series.

Bottle @ RBWG Asheville. Awesome aroma. Citrus candy, urinal goody-smelly cubes. Taste is a bit of a letdown after smelling the beer, watery, citrus, biscuits. Still good.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Tasted at a tasting in mid-2012 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours cloudy bright orange with a massive white head that slowly recedes to thick, messy lace. The nose is super funky and earthy with some resin hops, citrus peel, and a lightly creamy aroma. The flavor is the same, super funky brett, and plenty of earthiness with the nicely bitter resin hops and citrus peel. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long super funky and lightly bitter finish.
Tasted again at RBWG Asheville 2014 with similar results. The flavor was much funkier with the nose a bit more subdued, but it was still an excellent beer.
