burg326 (3640) - Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Poured a yellowish color with aromas of tropical fruit, hops, light wheat and some malt. Flavors were tropical fruit, hops, and some wheat. Decent take on this style, was surprised for sure.

HKdIPA (226) - HONG KONG - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Hazy straw-gold pour. Sour wheat dank aroma. Like a hoppier weizen. Taste is sort of what your expect in terms of flavors - wheat, sour (Brett?), some hoppy bitterness, balanced by sweet maltiness. A bit like a sour, wheat, bitter apple juice. Smooth. Finish is dry and sour. Nicer than I thought - interesting take on a wheat IPA (far more wheaty than the 10 Barrel OG Wheat). Would get again.

ericdevin (721) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from Corvallis Brew Supply, Corvallis. Pours a clear straw color, little to no head. Nose fresh and bretty, some wheat. Woof! Body lively, slightly slippery, very nice. So digging it.

Marstonlad (407) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2014
Tap at Janoinen Lohi, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a dense, medium-sized head, nice appearance. The aroma displays both hops and yeast: floral, spicy notes combine with berries, roses and fruits. Taste is light sweet and sour initially, later also bitter. Prominent hop character with plenty of yeast builds on a solid malt background. Brettanomyces-yeast is very noticeable. The palate is deliciously smooth with a medium body and moderate carbonation. A genuinely interesting hybrid with a rich, varied taste.

Cuso (4376) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 25, 2014
Tap at Le Šenk, Bratislava. Golden color with medium white head. Aroma of malt, wheat, fruit, honey. Solid malty base, with fruity notes, wheat followed by nice citrus hoppy kick. Long hoppy bitter finish. Tasty.

Anova167 (283) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Big lacy white head over a pale yellow hazy pour. Big bretty nose. Flavor is initially bretty with a touch of cherry pie. Big bitterness follows with a bit of fruit. Very dry finish. Nice beer.

Dr_Fellini (387) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Draft. Pours a clear light golden yellow color with an off white head. Aroma is fleshy fruit hops, sulfur, light wheat character. Flavor is very different than anything I’ve had before. Light sulfur, funky sweetness. Light to medium in body, lingering funk. Very tasty.
