teorn88 (3080) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
22oz bottle at home in London. It pours a Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of JulienHuxely. Pours a hazy amber beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is Bretty, barnyard funk with leather aspects as well. Flavor is light sour, funky and yeasty. Very nice drinkability, long, light sour aftertaste. Really well made sour beer by Mikkeller. Nice one!

Anova167 (300) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - OCT 11, 2014
I about killed myself with the cork flying out. Take care. Massive pillowy head. Light coppery color and clear. Aroma is tropical fruits, pepper, and some Brett. Nice hit of bretty bitterness and basement followed by some soft be easiness and that sweet fruit again. A bit of floral as well. A bit of alcohol heat on the finish.

ben4321 (4100) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Location: Sampled at Where the Wild Beers Are, 6/7/14

Aroma: The aroma is funky, with bretty notes and lemon, other fruit, and some spice
Appearance: Pours a darker orange color with some fairly dense head
Flavor: The flavor is much the same, mostly funky and fruity with a bit of spice as well
Palate: The body of this one is medium, with average carbonation and a lengthy finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty good funky beer. Definitely a tasty offering. Would happily re-visit at a later date with a larger pour.

jkwood04 (4175) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 2, 2014
750ml bottle (it’s a gusher that’ll explode the cork right off) in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a big, off-white head. Aroma of Brett, some spiciness, pale and caramel malts, light fruits, and hints of hops. Flavor the same with a lot of Brett. Very carbonated. An interesting beer but could be more refined.
