Pours golden with lively carb, aroma is light spice and must. Taste is similar, a little bland, maybe from the Brett.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle:   Dark dirty straw, hazy, large foamy white head, assertive lacing.   Oak and Brett on the nose, bright.   Dry on the tongue, Brett, barnish, slight unripened berries, a little shrubby.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Kinda finishes quickly.   Gets drier and drier as it warms.   Picks up more of the unripened berry flavor.   Lingering Brett and Oak.   Pretty tasty.   Wished it were a bit more floral.   Otherwise its pretty tasty.   Some lingering yeastiness.   Thanks Chris!

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured hazy, amber golden with a nice forming head. Aroma of brett funk with light stone fruits and an earthy spice. Light fruit tones that lent to apricots and citrus and pineapple. Nice brett funk and musky barnyard tones that were evident but not out of control. Light acidity but I would describe this more funky spiced than sour.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Pour is hazy golden with nice fluffy white head and good lacing. Aroma of brett, grassy notes, citrus, flowers, tropical fruitiness. Taste is bretty, grassy and citrussy hops, a bit of tropical fruits too, flowers, lactic, some sout notes. Low body and lively carb. Über-drinkable and very refreshing. Awesome.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle into a nonic pint. Pours hazy hay with a thick pillow of white head. Aroma is pineapple, spice, yeast, plenty of brett. Taste is brett, pineapple, a bit of butter, sugar. No real oak character. Wish I had saved this to split with somebody because I don’t much feel like drinking the rest myself.

DiarmaidBHK (3742) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle at angels trumpet. Shared by really nice guy at the bar. Pours golden with a thin white head. Definitely some hop funk on the nose along with some sourness. Probably a bit more sourness on the tongue that hops. Finishes clean. An interesting take on an old classic.

vtafro (4841) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Golden pour with white head. Sweet and Brett aromas with some normal hop tones. Flavor is nice, but not as good as the hill farmstead line up.
