COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To take up the challenge and make a 100% true Brett IPA can very easily become a fatal attraction for the Brewmaster. Once you get acquainted with Nelson Sauvin’s fruity and seductive personality, along with Bretts irresistible, overpowering, alluring and very charming nature, it will ensnare you and drive you mad obsessing over how exactly you can create the perfect desirable tangy, funky, crisp, tart flavor in ya mouth.

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
2015-08-16. Hazy dark pastel yellow body with a small off white head and light lace. 3+ Aroma has citrus notes, fruit and moderate funk. Flavour is interesting, moderate dusty bretty funk character up front, mildly sweet pale malt and some nice fruit character. It finishes quite dry with a quick lightly astringent lemon note. Smooth average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. On tap at Coles, Buffalo.

patricks110 (2126) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2015
Very enjoyable. Pours a supremely murky orange with a brown tinge, thick beige head leaves tons of lacing. The aroma is tart with lemons and orange rind up front, grainy and toasted malt notes and light funk. Tart lemons and hints of spice and fruity esters. Lemon tartness throughout with the brett making an appearance in the aftertaste. Mild hop bitterness with a bit of stonefruit and grapefruit coming in mid palate. An interesting brew!

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2015
650ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a generous white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon and yeast with some grainy notes. Taste is a lemon tartness with hints of yeast, grains and funk. Taste is a lemon tartness with a citrus hop bitterness and a malty sweetness. Grainy mouth feel. Light to medium body with generous carbonation. Overall, a pretty well crafted IPA with bretts.

Taste at Thirsty Monk during sour beer week. Intrigued enough to shell out the $$ for a bottle. Hazy yellow pour. Less in-yo-face than I expected. Nicely balanced between the funk and the bright NZ hops. Definite lemon and tart apple flavors stand out. Ends up being somewhat subdued- but in a classy way. Fairly dry and crisp. Pour was too warm so will have to bring some home and have a proper tasting.

solidfunk (5475) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Nice. Bretta very well integrated here. Hazy golden pour with OK head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Hint of citrus. Hood balance, and good stuff. Tap at Westbrook.

Gerbeer (2403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with moderate retentive head. Aromas of brett/funk, rubber, peach skins and a little tropical fruit. Flavors carry same though more intense and funky. A creamy, bretty, fruity, and full IPA. Very nice.

Sample at wild beer fest. Glad I was limited to the same here because this just did not work for me. Lots of vitamin and medicinal notes in the flavor. Aroma is a little nicer with some aromatics on the nose and some funkiness. Think there is something else going on here. This seems like there some extra yeast in here than just the Brett to give you all that vitamin flavor.
