Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2013
A wheat IPA from Mikkeller and De Proef, and what a name. The aroma is mainly brett yeast...you know, like moldy orange peel, only this time, moldy banana because of the wheat. It is very hoppy AND very sweet. One would be forgiven for thinkinh its a stronger beer than it is. Heavier whea-based body, drags a bit, and generally overwhelms the five senses, although not in a hop moster way. Sampled at Jake Melnicks, Chicago.

Bottled:
Pours golden with a slight haze. Large, fluffy head. Dry wheat and citrus aroma. Thick,wheaty flavour with a growing grassy citrus bitterness. Dry finish.
A bit odd, but good! Not your typical IPA.

fidelis83 (2196) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 27, 2015
330ml bottle. Hazy bright yellow-gold pour with a one finger, soapy to chunky off white head. Aroma is loaded with horse blanket bretty funk, some wet limestone and dried stone fruit, sweet wheat, orangey citrus and some nice prairie flower floral notes. Flavor is sweet and starchy wheat up front, orange peel, lime, a little melon, pineapple, sweet and sharply tart stone fruit, green wood, horse blanket and wet basement. Light to medium body, surprisingly creamy entry, slowly drying to an off dry, but crisp and slightly astringent finish with a medium strength, blanketing and sharp carbonation in there to liven things up. Really tasty stuff overall.

GlasgowTAD (590) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2015
Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head which lingers around. As soon as I began to pour I could smell the brett; wheat, lemon zest, barnyard, rustic basement funk and some green apples. Taste is bretty, laden with sour/tart wheat taste, grapes, vinous/champagney hints and a hint of apricot in the finish. A bitterness is noticeable but the hops have faded since the inception of this beer. Brett has taken over and turned it into something special. Had one of these before I began rating and it was slightly more hop-focused.

Sebilinz (1052) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle. Hazy orange body with white head. Aroma is pine with some fruits. Taste is also fruity with light malts and some herbs and very light brett. Aftertaste is bitter with slight sourness. Maybe to fresh I think it should have had more time to develop more brett but nice.

Pivceps (1) - SERBIA - JUL 3, 2015 does not count
Drank it from tap. Beautiful (fluo-like) golden to orange color. Balanced amount of CO2. Loads of hop aroma, mixed with bit of brett. I like that brett are not overly powerfull, just give a nice sour refreshment.
