Advocate_Ames (417) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellow with a soft carbonation and a dissipating head. The aroma is of brett, mango fruit, a soft funk, mild tropical hop notes, and yeast scents. While tasting I noticed a mild tartness with a moderate bitterness. I also could taste mango fruit, barnyard yeast notes, light malted grains, and citrus. The finish is a blend of mild tartness, fruit, bitterness, and yeast. The finish lingers but was not unpleasant. Overall a good beverage, I enjoyed it very much.

Lukaduke (1994) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a medium golden color with a finger of white gaseous foam. The nose is gentle barnyard brett, nuances of tropical fruit, mango, pineapple and apricot along with some background dusty grain. The palate follows the nose nicely with lots of barnyard funk, complex tart fruit and a crisp clean malt backbone. Finish gets a bit bitter and grassy lingering finish.
