Draught at EBF, 3/22/14
Clear pale golden body has just a slight touch of chill haze. White head atop shows strong retention.
Lovely tropical fruit producing hops in the nose show no signs of that nasty pine and very little citrus, for that matter. Pineapple and kiwi, with a touch of minerals, clean yeast and just a hint of band-aid formed brett acids. Its outrageously aromatic, fresh, juicy and wonderfully attenuated.
Soft, almost creamy mouthfeel supports the very light brett acids that are augmented by delicious, bright, lively and light hoppiness that has a few spicy notes and then full-on mango-pineapple. Malt is perfectly dry, but not astringent or over attenuated. Little hints of pils malt sweetness and just a quenching and yet thirst-inducing drinkability. Wow. Glad I stopped by here. Will certainly be trying more from these guys. Outstanding.

[ Bottle ][ RBWG Asheville Grand Tasting ][ 750mL ][ Globe ][ Free ][ 2/8/14 ]
>> Pours clear straw with weaker foam. Nose is dank tropical hops, catty, gooseberry, somewhat phenolic weird yeast. Taste is dry, catty, sharp hop bite. Solid overall.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
hazy gold, puffy white head. Oily pine hop nose, very pale ale with sea salt and earth, only evidence of brett is faint egg. Sparkling body that avoids that over-carbonated brett-IPA regularity, brings lime and grapefruit up front, oily orange mid through the bitter paper-grapefruit end, no sweetness at all and very low brett in this well attenuated pale ale.

Bottle poured at home from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a white head.I smell a piney, grapefruit flowery hoppy scent. Taste is a nice pale ale with a citrusy taste. Aftertaste is nice with not a lot of biiterness, but just the right amount. Overall, I was really impressed with this beer. Im not a huge pale ale guy, but this one was good. Thanks to dmac for the beer.

Bottle at Blippsmas! Pours a hazed gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Soft brett, musk and a bit of funk. Medium-bodied, a bit sweet, touches of graininess. Sweet into the finish, hints of yeast. Id love to try this in a couple years and see how it funked up. A bit muted currently.
