Bottle thanks to northernbrews for sharing. Cloudy gold pour with a messy ring of foam. Aroma is dominated by brett with hints of sour candy, and oak. Huge barnyard brett taste as well with a little sour lemon and oak. Overly foamy in the mouthfeel and it kinda stings a bit too.

tectactoe (1886) - Michigan, USA - AUG 10, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Jeff. Cloudy, bright sunshine yellow color with a mild orange tint. Foamy, white head dissipates to a mild, swampy film & collar. Aroma is largely Brett. Some barnyard, woody funk, musty pineapple, faint lemon, damp hay, & a touch of cotton funk. Taste is also super Brett heavy. Musty, funk, dry, & oaky as hell. Huge funk. Cobwebs, musty hay, dry & dirty barnyard floor... Only a very mild tartness with a light pineapple & perfume essence. But dry, musty, overpowering funk dominates this one. Not bad, but almost a little *too* much Brett for me. Not balanced.

Bottle: The aroma consists of yeast, apple, brett, and faint lemon peel. It pours a mostly transparent dull gold with a touch of haze and a white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with yeast, citrus, and a touch of apple. He finish has brett, lemon peel, and faint florals. It’s light bodied with moderate-lively carbonation.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle from SHIG. Boy, this one sure aged well, at least, someone kept it an a prime temperature. Aroma and flavor is Belgian yeast, Brett, light pineapple, even slighter apple, but not much sweetness. It clearly wasn't fresh, but wasn't stale either. Probably near the end of it aging profile, I was very satisfied. Great beer.

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Monster 1.5L bottle shared at SDBW kickoff. Full haze, bright golden pour. Beautiful, Brett driven carbonation. Nose is excellent Brett C pineapple,yellow apple, sweeter canned pineapple. Taste is stale, sugar, some pineapple juice. But the palate is dusty, flabby. Hasn’t help up 100% but still enjoyable.

b3shine (5458) - Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bomber to oversized snifter (thanks mikem409). Looks good; a semi-transparent orange with white head and good carbonation. Smells semi-sweet, doughy, and funky. Tastes like it smells with less funk and an average mouthfeel. Could be funkier, but enjoyable nonetheless.

SHIG (3587) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle: Poured a coppery to hazy yellow with a two finger frothy foam head. Aroma is pungent fruit and brett funk. Taste is a metallic hop with some soft malts and yet has that bitter dry brett finish.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle generously shared by ipa247. Thanks Jeff. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small white head that settles to a ring and leaves a bunch of small spots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is lots of funky brett, some apricot, green apple, and a light peppery note. The taste is dry with funky brett, apricot, and green apple. The finish is quite dry and bretty. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Not terribly complex, but a good beer.

Drank this out of a huge 1.5L bottle at DLD. Wow, whoever brought this, awesome! I’m guessing it was Sean9689, since I was standing right next to Thorpe429 when this was opened. Poured with a slight haze, and a small slightly white/off-white color. Aroma was sour notes, a touch of fruit, really digging the tart notes. A bit flat on the flavor though, perhaps low carbonation (to me), the funk notes are still enjoyable.

brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a bit white head. A really nice tartness on the nose. Apples, pears, and maybe some tropical fruit. At least some yeast and maybe some pale malt. Straw and pale fruits with some tropical fruits and citrus notes. A really good beer. Medium bodied with high carbonation.
