jibby (13) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Appearance: orange, ~hazy, fluffy head. Aroma: lemon peel, biscuits. Only slightly sour. Slightly sweet. Light thin body, as brett tends to create. Just kind of flat all around. There’s nothing wrong with it, in the sense of off-flavors or large imbalances, just uninspiring. But it is refreshing, so I wouldn’t refuse one if offered at a barbecue. Problem is, nobody will (price tag of around $6). If you’re looking for a light summery beer, I would suggest the quintessential Saison Dupont.

maekchu (2686) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Sharp, almost smoky, sort of funk, burnt rubber. Medium gold straw color. Thin fruity initial, light Brett, harsh funky fruitiness in mid palate, and then a drop off in flavors and it flattens. Interesting but kind of disappointing for what should be a special brew. Flavors thin out too quickly and the harsh, phenolic notes detract in a beer that is this light bodied.

KyotoLefty (7452) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle. Funky brett nose, a bit lactic, peaches,grapefruit. Orange-gold, hazy, with lace. Very funky flavor, harsh, hay, thinner. Very disappointing flavor.

Fredd_an (195) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2015
Grumlig gyllene huve. Små bubblor. Dåligt med skum. Humlig smak(typiskt USA) & massa brettajäst. En viss trevlig maltsötma infinner sig. Medelfyllig kropp. Tyvärr är doften i just denna flasköl väldigt liten. Känner en viss bretta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beersiveknown (3832) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle from brewdog
pours hazy pale blonde with dense white head. Typical weisse-like notes, Spicey yeast esters on nose, full bodied, spritzy carbonation, slightly tart with some developing Brett character but very subtle. Only 6 months old at the moment, needed longer.

Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Excellent spicy and balanced banana aroma. Flavor of some breads yeast and light Brett. Some Belgian Candy sugar and very slight banana nut in flavor as well. Woody finish.

Lukasmh (492) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with big frothy brett head which last a long time. Aroma is really juicy. Only slight yeast, spices, tropical fruits and pineapple. Some fruity funk in there. Some bread grains as well. Taste is similar to the nose. Juicy grapes and fruity yeast. Some citrus and bretty grape as well as slight grains. High carbonation and super dry and crisp mouthfeel. Slight spicy finish. Really drinkable!

fkoolen (564) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2015
75cl bottle at home. Almost transparant golden colour, white foamy head. Belgian yeasty banana, some spiciness and nice creamy malts reminiscent of a (light) Belgian triple, faint citrus hoppy notes and a very light hint of brett funk, without real acidity. Very well balanced. Low carbonation, medium body. Expected some more brett tones from this.

danlo (1593) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2015
1 pint 9.4 fl oz bottle. Golden amber colour, frothy white foam head and aroma of fruity, banana, yeast, funky. Taste is sourish with malt caramel, grain, apricot fruity, funk and spicey earthy pithy bitterness. Light to medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry lingering bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

RickTheRick (602) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2015
Une couche de mousse moyenne mais durable se pose sur une bière aux teintes orangées et très marécageuse. Un bouquet à la fois fruité où des oranges sont notamment détectées, et funky titille les sens. Cette sensation fruitée est décuplée en bouche; les mandarines, tangerines et oranges sanguines sont jumelées à un aspect sauvage léger, mais bien assumé. La carbonatation est un peu trop intense, à mon avis, mais n’empêche que cette bière, même si la bouteille datait un peu, est superbe.
