Suttree (5543) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle from Tasty Beverage, Asheville. Pours orange, coppery, with a decent sized head. Smells great, with a big flowery aroma at first, then notes of tropical fruit. Some winey notes in the background. Taste is nicely tart and citrusy, with nice winey flavors. Very easy to drink. It gets winier as it warms. Hides it’s ABV well, too.

ctipping (216) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2015
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Hazy amber body. Huge brett aroma. Strong red wine as well. Red wine is the first taste, as well. Sweet maltiness. Brett earthy finish. Medium heavy. Medium carbonation. It’s all brett and red wine, which taste great together.

Blairgus (3334) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2015
12 July 2015, tap at Anchorage Brewing. Orange and hazy. Nose is orange peel and faintest of Brett. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Hints of earthy cobwebs and Brett with candied orange peel. Very nice.

GenDV138 (3367) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2015
750 ml caged/corked bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Batch 3, July 2014. Clear golden orange with 2.5 fingers of off-white head. Aromas of Brett, funk, wine, oak. Tastes of oak, herbs, dry wine, flowery and vinous notes, some white pepper, some tart acidic notes and Brett. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Too vinous for my liking.

DietPepsican (1527) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2015
Gold pour white head. Peachy. Urinal cake. Bubblegum. Nectarine. A bit too chewy. Spicing mixes well. Fine, hoping for something a touch drier but beer still reps.

Fantastic stuff. Pours a dark hazy golden. Aromas of red wine, oak, funk, Belgian yeast and some spice. Flavors are tart and funky with some nice sweetness and spice. Loved this.

mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours orange/amber with hints of gold. Head in bubbly and off white and faded quickly into faint wisps and a pencil thin collar. Aroma is heavy on the Brett funk, with grass, floral hops, and lightly bready malt sweetness. I also get some orange zest. Taste is again with the brett funk up front, some citrus zestiness, very faint watermelon and fairly floral. There’s a nice deep oakiness that works behind everything; but holds it’s own. Light body, tart and bright on the tongue. Bubbly med-high carbonation.

Ferris (7679) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle - Nice citrus and light grassy notes, with a nice berry like sweetness. Cloudy gold with a decent white head.. Tart and vinous with a bit of bitterness. Red grape and some woody dry notes.
