COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hey girl - just listening to you talk about how the CMY-1, CMY-5, and CMY-7 Brettanomyces yeast, along with the Pale 2-row, Munich II, Oats, Wheat, and Honey malts, together with citrus peel and juice added at KO, followed by fresh zest with balanced citrusy hop characteristics at whirlpool - makes me wanna drink this beer just for you. An all-Brett pale ale brewed with citrus peel and with citrus juice added.

PhillyCraft (3219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2014
On tap at BSBh, pours hazy golden with active carbonation and small white head. Aromas are brett, peach, wood. Flavor is lots of Brett critters, peach/apricot but it’s subtle, sweet tart innards, and wet old wood.

Bomber from greens. Light with a nice wheat and honey tang to the flavor. More of which comes through as it warms so let this one sit longer than usual. Cloudy muted yellow color. Little bit of banana and touch of spice on the finish. Nice especially for being so low alcohol.

kappldav123 (4924) - GERMANY - SEP 2, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Golden-yellow in the glass, small head. Mild malty-sourish aroma. Starts mild, not as sourish as exspected, fruity hints of apricot. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable. Nice!

swoopjones (5887) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2014
draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo NY. hazy peach/nectarine pour, citrusy, light bandaid, . seems like a watered down version of a better beer.

pdx77 (1365) - Oregon, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On draught at Roscoe’s for the Sour Beer Summit. Hazy golden peach color. Aroma is light citrus, yeast, and bandage. Taste is similar to aroma, with dank but manageable yeast sourness and citrus. Strange, but good and light.

tectactoe (1849) - Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Cloudy, dingy amber body with a mostly fuzzy, slightly creamy eggshell cap. Big rotten pineapple & funky hay aroma, loaded with brettanomyces. Lightly tart lemon-lime with a small backbone of acidity & faint must. More mild on the palate than expected. Didn’t realize this was only 4% ABV til later. Lemon spritz, citrusy, a touch of musty cobwebs, funky Brett, underripe pineapple shards, & some freshly cut grass. Light, refreshing, & pretty quaffable.

jeremyh70 (705) - Missouri, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Slightly hazy apricot color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma of light citrus and lemon with some apple and mild hay from the brett. The taste is both juicy and tangy at first with oranges, lemons and tangerines. Dries out nicely with a musty wet hay character. Finishes with a hint of phenolic taste and mild herbal hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is aqueous with a light body and medium/high carbonation. Very nice and Orval like with well blended flavors. Drinkable and refreshing.

bwa5879 (655) - Portage, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pale, cloudy hay yellow with half inch of white head and scant lacing. Sour apple-y scent, brett funkiness, yeast notes that share similarities to champagne, lemon-y citrus rind, and detectable cream. Average carbonation, puckery sour mouthfeel but smooth and not overbearing, with average thickness, crisp finish. Crisp funky brett that’s somewhat tame and displays a creaminess, grape, champagne yeast, citrus throughout, finishes doughy. Dangerously good, recommended for someone with interest but little experience with sour beers.

Defreni (2602) - Husum, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2014
Flaske: Aftenens helt store overraskelse. Fornem øl med masser af brett i både smag og duft. Tilpas tørhed gør denne øl nærmest Orvalsk. Virkelig en lækker lækker øl.

mR_fr0g (3095) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, blue session. 02/05/2014. Hazed golden colour with a lasting white head. Aroma is fart, baby diaper and resin hop. Weird. Flavour is earthy, farty sulphur, earthy lingering stale malts. Some lingering lemon. Palate is semi sweet, fine carbonation. Very disappointing.
