Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Nose is funky light barnyard with some grassy hops. Palate is full, flows easily through the mouth and leaves a refreshing, lemony taste. Flavors of grassy hops, barnyard, dirty straw and hay, well balanced.

Dr_Fellini (356) - 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.

Bottle from Plumpjack. Wheat is the new hops? I prefer the old hops - hops - but wheat is a pretty decent hop I guess. Beautiful urine-like appearance, really a dead ringer for urine down to the bubbles and all. Mmm, pee. The aroma is decidedly non-urine like, which is good because pee doesn’t smell or taste as good as it looks. Wheaty, grassy, floral, and herbal. The flavor is nice, with a smooth wheat base, Bretty funk, and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied and crisp as a mother. Good brewski.

Poured from a 330 cc bottle. Hazy golden with generous white head and big lacing. Aroma is hops and citrus. Flavour is rich in hops, grapefruit, lemon, grass, and Brett yeast. A bretted wheat IPA turns out to be a nice combination here.

Bottle to tulip Grass, orange, grapefruit, wheat, a little resin and Brett. Hazy dark yellow with a thin frothy white head with plenty of lacing. Taste is Brett, and wheat...no surprise...some pepper and a nice bitterness.

Maris (955) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 20/6/2014. Pours a clear straw with a medium fine white head. Has a distinct pleasant aroma of citrus and hops (lots of grapefruit). In the mouth, there’s grassy and bready malt, brett, and heaps of lemon and grapefruit. Features a very firm, dry, quite tart bitterness. Medium bodied with relatively lively carbonation. Doesn’t present much like a wheat beer to me - more a very hoppy saison I think. Regardless, it’s very good, which is generally par for the course for anything labelled Mikkeller.

lesifflebiere (1188) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Boisson mince de couleur jaune scintillant, au col de mousse mince, et aux notes olfactives rappelant une Saison, avec ses notes de fruits jaunes piquants. Les bretts sont toujours discrets en bouche, elle est aussi moins fruitée et plus houblonnée que prévu. Bière sèche, à la finale âcre même, mais qui enchante sur tous les autres plans : goût, odorat et vue. Ce n’est que la finale en gorge qui gâche un peu la conclusion de cette concoction simple mais très directe.

sloth (2447) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Hazy tan body with a small white cap on top. Retention is good, lace is nil. Spicy nose, yeasty, grassy and a little funky. Light bodied with a spritely carbonation, slightly tangy, little acidic, crisp. Light yeast notes and some barnyard, faint citrus, grapefruit, black pepper and some pineapple. Dry, tangy finish, nice bite, brett laying back. Bottle from WillRunForBeer. Thanks man!

330ml brown bottle. Pale wheaty yellow pour with light haze. Creamy white foam. Nose has wheat malts, touch of floral and citrus hops. Taste is dryish, wheaty, some lemon, late funk/bretty notes. Bretty finish, again dry, crisp, a little late hops. Soft mouthfeel and creamy carbonation. I don’t have a lot of experience with bretted wheat IPAs, but this one is tasty.
