Pours a moderately flat golden orange. Nose was nice, mostly belgian yeast, hints of hoppiness. Taste was superb, nice moderate sweet base, big belgian yeast flavors, not a lot of fruity esters, mostly earhtiness, good hop bitterness, fruity and earthy hop flavor, mixed with moderate sweetness.

From tap at the Linkery. Aroma is dense brett and woody. Look is strange muddy orange with no head. Aroma is stunning orange, hops fruity and wood. Dense orange flavoured and wooden dry, tart too. Dense and dry finish yet smooth and wooden. Looks terrible but aroma/flavour is fantastic.

Its nice to finally have this, since I keep missing it for some reason. Tap at O’briens. Pours golden orange with a nice tan head. Nose is big on the citrus and wood. Taste is really pretty great, touch of funk, but overall a nice belgian imperial ipa.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Draught at Blind Tiger. Cloudy gold amber with very lacy white head. Super lacy. Aroma of light basement funk, barn/hay, light toasted grains. Taste is brett funky going medium bitter in finish. Medium carbonation, good liveliness on tongue. Hides booze very well, dangerous.

On tap at Downtown Johnny Brown’s. Brett aroma strong in the nose. Comes thru in the taste, but not overwhelmingly so. Grenache barrel aged - you catch very subtle hints of both the Grenache and the barrel. Pleasant additions, not distractions. This was easily one of my favorite "Brett" beers ever.

Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Bright yellow. Aroma of grass and licorice. Subtle barnyard flavor. Decent.

A hazed dark amber pour with about a half finger of lacing off white head. Sweet aroma with lots of fruit, spice, and bits of sour and ester. Great flavor, full bodied, acidic fruit with hints of brett and a long lasting tart finish. Crisp amazing beer.

Served on tap at O’Brien’s during SDBW. The appearance is a pale golden orange with a bigger white head. The Brett jumps out pronouncedly in the nose. Sweet tarts, lemon, pale and golden malts. The flavors follow with lemon, sweet-tarts, malty, light hop additions, and a drying oak. Medium to full bodied mouth that is well carbonated. Very refreshing ale.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2014
tap at rrbf. Pours orange amber with one finger of white head. Nose is funky and lightly vinous up front, some light bitter hop character but mostly overplayed by the funk. Flavor is similar--the brett works well with this particular barrel. Never been a huge fan of the base beer ( I still don’t think I have even got around to rating it) but this is quite nice.

On tap at Dexters, pours a clear amberish copper with an off white head, the aroma catches you right away, a good amount of tartness with funk and fruit as well, the flavor has a sweet yet hoppy front end, strange I know but it works, the brett really comes through in the finish, dry yet refreshing at the same time, the wine doesn’t completely shine through, but you can tell it’s a little different, not bad at all.
