Bottle, shared with Grippitis, Parksy, and PQ. Hazy medium gold, large lacy white head. Lovely beguiling Brett-hop character, floral and forest character in abundance, maybe some lavender? Underlying funk. Long bitter finish. Truly elegant, very cool. Would love to have this again.

UXO (1255) - CANADA - FEB 18, 2016
Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold, massive rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, stone fruit, tropical fruit, dry funk. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-high carbonation, dryish lingering bitter and funky finish. (4/5) Look at that head! Just look at it! You don’t need to smell or taste this to know it’s brett. And there’s no doubt about the brett once the smell and taste hit! Balanced light sweetness, hoppy citrus and fruit, and a lingering dry funk. Really quite nice. (16/20)

Clear light yellow body with an extremely foamy head. Strong hoppy aroma. Taste is bitter with hops, light floral notes, and it leaves a strong taste in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RCx240 (195) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
Deep, hazy amber in colour. Frothy white head with decent retention, spotty lacing. Faint aroma of citrus, grapefruit, jasmine, and peach. Taste is tart, fresh grapefruit and peaches balanced by a mildly bitter hop characteristic. Finishes with a lingering jasmine note. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation. Absolutely stunning. A perfect contrast of flavours which complement each other very well to form a beer which is both very refreshing and also has considerable depth of flavour.

Very well done, and very drinkable. Soft citrus bretta and lots of pine from hops. Pours orange amber with decent head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Good stuff. Tap at the Drake.

DeanF (2202) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Pours with a perfect foam head of huge proportions, foggy gold body and modest carbonation. Good hoppy aroma of moderate complexity. Good hop flavour to start with notes of pear, apple. Dry finish. A memorable IPA in a crowded market.

jgb9348 (5437) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Crystal clear light amber and copper coloured body with a faint tint of orange and a thick, dense, but soapy off-white head, about four centimetres tall. Rich aroma of brett, dry grapes, sour raspberries, light PNW hops and a dose of soap. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a ridiculously dry flavour up front of malt, brett, bitter funk, basement must, mushrooms and a touch of permanent marker flavour that you’d get from licking the end of a marker - interesting. Aftertaste is very drying, ever so slightly soured, but a touch bitter from hops, but mostly bitter from the brett and yeast - very herbal as well. Overall, quite a bit overrated, for sure. About what you could expect from a brett saison, but this doesn’t show any hops, nor does it show much after the brett and yeast notes. Not a bad beer, per se, but purely one-dimensional and not inspiring, really. That said, i’m glad I brought it back across the two countries and tried it, but I kind of wish I just tried this in BC and brought a different beer back across the land. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Crosstown Liqour Store in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on 07-June-2015 for CA$8,99 sampled at home in Washington on 22-November-2015.

Smells of peaches and wheat, like summer. Pours cloudy, golden colour, thick growing white head. Bitter, like grapefruit peel, and pushed the line a bit too much. Undishtingable stone fruit notes with a grassy tone and pineapple. Grapefruit peel lingers as does the farmhouse ale characteristic which the brewery is best known for, adding complexity and, as they bottle says, "funk". The finish is dry, too dry, moderately carbonated.
