Bottle thanks to pantanap. Pours a very light and bright golden yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is nicely tart with a bright lemony fruity note, sharp and really nice tropical fruitiness all around, bright and fresh with a brett and soft funkiness that all blend really well. The fruitiness really rides in the finish. So refreshing, great beer.

Had thanks to a trade with Lukeaduke. Color was a unique pale yellow. Aroma is nice and fruity. Great Brett style beer. Taste was nice and tart and was very refreshing.

Lightly hazy golden color, thing white head. Nice brett nose, fruity, obvious notes of paw paw, flavor is paw paw, just a solid paw paw beer all around. Paw paw.

Bottle thanks to Peter! A lot of horse and barn up front with a bright paw paw fruitiness. As it warms some more lemon and city’s come out, I’m guessing from the hops. A very nice blend if fruit and funk. Slightly dry. Less fruit forward than the American wheat paw paw but still awesome.

obguthr (3836) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2014
Lime, brett, and persimmon nose. Clear golden, medium head. Sour lime flavor, a little brett. Tasty and super clean, not extremely funky, but tastefully balanced. Quite nice.

Drake (8560) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bomber shared by Travlr at the WWGT2D? Charlottesville tasting, 4/5/14. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a large frothy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of scuppernongs, tropical and syrupy fruit, peppery funk. The taste is dry, peppery funk, dry tropical fruits. Medium bodied.

jackl (4604) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle @ The WWGT2D? Tasting. Gold pour with a small head. The nose is pillowy brett, marshmallow. Dusty countryside. Pinapple and apricot fruit salad. The taste is pineapple. Dry brett. Angel food cake. Light body, soft carbonation. Nice stuff.

Westmeister (1754) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 1, 2014
Cumming GA tasting. Thanks EricTeusink for bring this one up. This was not overly complex in any fashion, but the brett developed nicely for this medium tart, lightly funky brew. I get some light fruits and mango, crisp malt with a little orange peel. Flavor is held back.

jrob21 (2561) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Tasting with westmeister. Clear golden pour. Earthy dirty aroma. Bitter sour flavor and some light apple fruit. After the yeast I struggle to identify many other flavors but the yeast and brett add a bit of uniqueness here.

EricTeusink (686) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Forsyth County Bumble Tasting. Pours completely clear pear with minimal white head. Scent is fruit which I can only assume is Paw Paw and earth. Sweet to funk taste that would be better if not for a bit of aftertaste. Light medium body with ample carbonation. Bottle - Shared at Tasting

BlowOffTube (472) - Michigan, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Exactly what I was in the mood for. Pours and orange sunset hue with thin white head. Aroma of some melon, starburst fruit and Brett. Taste is first sour, funky, melon, some mango, refreshing. Light body medium carbonation.
