COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: IPA gæret 100% med brettanomyces og humlet med Galaxy, Citra, Summit og Cascade.

English: To take up the challenge and make a 100% true Brett beer can very easily become a fatal attraction for the Brewmaster. Ones you get acquainted with Bretts irresistible, seductive, alluring and very charming nature, it will ensnare you and drive you to the point of obsession to create the desirable tangy, funky, tart flavor in ya mouth.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Keg @ CPK. Hazy golden color with a big white head. The nose is orchard fruits, white grape, light wood, brett and light wood. The taste is light lemon and herbs, some light cheese and yeast. Light tangy brett and dry grains. Citrus and sea grass. Very dry, pleasing finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, very nice! As others have pointed out, it’s pretty reminiscent of orval.

olio (5267) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2012
50 cl bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with medium-sized head. Aroma of urinal cake, citrus fruits, floral hops and some pine needles. Flavor of fruits, hops, grass, yeast, some malts and goose berries. Nice aroma which the taste does not quite meet.

laiti (4944) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 2013
Aroma is starts with exotic fruits and hops, but is very shortly overrided with massive amount of urinal cake. Flavour is rather strong on bretta with earthy notes and some hops and background. Way too much bretta here.

lusikka (5338) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2012
500 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy orange yellow colour with a large foamy white head. Aroma of urinal cake, sweet orange and lemon. Some barnyard and pine notes as well after a while, which run over the urinal cake like notes. Flavour of sweet malts, urinal cake, sweet orange, bitter floral hops, caramel and some tartness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Sour, fruity, high bitter finish. Despite the urinal cake this seems to work quite nicely as the bitterness hides the off-flavours a bit.

JanLaursen (2731) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle, 50 cl. Hazy orange with a mostly lasting frothy white head. Nose is citrussy, bretty, herbal, much like a lively Orval. Taste is medium sweet, herbal, citrussy hops, brett, leading to a bonedry, astringent finish. Refreshing. Well made thirst-quencher. Very funky.

tcane7 (1576) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2012
On tap at Memphis Taproom. Pours hazy orange-amber. Nose has a lot of berry and some floral hops, hints of horse, and spice. Hop bitter with light berry, spice, pepper, and faint brett funk.

mansquito (3106) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Monk’s Cafe, Philadelphia tap ($8): Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is like a garden: floral, grassy, earthy, and a bit non-descript funky. This IPA is hop-heavy, but has an undertone of earthiness and funkiness. I think it might be a little off-balance, but it is still quite good. Good to have this as my first Brett IPA.

Defreni (2325) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Flaske: Orange let diset øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er let brettet. ikke meget humle. Smagen er faktisk rigtig brettet uden antydning afhumle før den store bitterhed der tydeligt viser at det er en IPA: Det sjove er at det faktisk fungerer udmærket.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 Keg at CBC, London. Pours hazy amber with a medium, white foam head. Has quite a floral nose with some brett, yeas and berries. Light to medium sweet flavor, lightly dry and yeasty, with lots of dry and bitter grass, brett, light funk. Medium to full bodied with average, smooth carbonation. Dry, highly bitter to finish with plenty of dry grass, perfumey hops. The grassiness is a touch abrasive. A little bit too bitter in the end, but there is some really nice bretty and yeasty dryness in here. (3.6)

Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours cloudy orange with a big, fluffy white head. Gorgeous nose, all yeast, grass, zesty lemon and poo. Medium sweet flavor with lots of drying yeast, light funk, sturdy grassy bitterness, light doughy malts. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Dry finish, medium sweet but hard to tell from all the crisp brett and yeast, manure, basement musk, horseblanket and grass. Great one. (4.2)
