3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Alex here...Bottle into a tulip...Pours a super light and watery yellow, gusher with great retention and lacing...Aroma is a little light but complex; orange peel, brett, a little coriander. Not as strong funk wise as I thought a brett wit would be...The taste is not as exciting at all, tastes more like a wit than the aroma with a funk finish. Its flat and dead, a light chalk finish with some spice.
Interesting beer and concept, just not executed totally. Needs a little more funk from the brett.

Bottle... Poured a pale yellowish with a white head. Some strong white tones with a nice spiciness and then a kick of brett funk. Some nice esters and very dry.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a cloudy orange color with a bit white head.
S: Woah is there a funkiness to this nose. Quite musty and spicy with a bit of woody note to it as well. Green apple, lemon, and an overall barnyard aroma.
T: This beer is intensely dry with a mildly spiced flavor, nowhere near as much as usual for a witbier, but certainly there. A lot of bready wheat is there too, as is the same fruitiness of the nose and still lots of Brettanomyces funk.
M: The body is medium with a fairly aggressive carbonation and a very dry finish.
D: If you like the intense funk from the wild yeast, this is actually a pretty nice beer.

22 oz bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a light yellow white with a foamy white head. Aroma is light citrus, some earthy leathery Brett. Taste is a smooth wheat grain, Brett spice lemon citrus along with mild floral spice. Taste is really well integrated. Palate is light to medium, really active carbonation, dry clean finish. Nice, thanks Eugene.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber thanks to akbeerfiend on BA.
Pours hazy yellow in color with a large bubbly white head that fades to thick foam. Thick lacing.
Aroma is very lemony and bretty with wheat and a little spice. Fairly subtle.
The flavor is subtle and wheaty, but nice. A little orange and lemon, with bretty funk. Not really sour at all.
Carbonation level is too high and makes the beer seem a little thin.
Other than that though, it’s a solid brew.

Got some bottles of this last August when I was in Anchorage. Colour... a hazy yellow-gold with a thick white head. Nose... yeasty, citrusy and bretty. Palate... nicely frothy, to start, a wave of yeast and brett followed by woody notes, spice, vanilla, some funk, citrus and a medium length finish.

22oz bottle shared thanks to TomDecapolis. Poured a lighter yellow color with an averaged sized white head. Hazy. Aromas of wheat, citrus, and some spices. Tastes of the same. I would not have guessed there was Brett in this one.
