Bottle. Pours very pale slightly misty yellow with a ferocious white head, looks great. Aroma is incredible, the brett works well with the hops to provide a sharp tropical fruit smell, passion fruit, pineapple, some mango and lychee with some peppery brett funkiness. Taste is more of the same, lemony, peppery, funky. Sharp with a light sourness and a bitter finish, refreshing and clean. I really like this. I never thought I’d give a beer a 5 but this possesses everything I love about beer. It’s perfect.

Cuando no esperabas ser sorprendido ya ahí que te va. La base de una lambic y su levadura pero completamente ajustado a la lupulización de una IPA. Lo curioso es cómo han conseguido integrarlo. Esta levadura no suele respetar en exceso al lúpulo en aroma. Estamos viviendo la revolución de la absoluta libertad. Otra nueva vuelta de tuerca.

Now this is really a gem. You get some really nice hoppy bitterness exquisitely paired with the wheat-aromas. Mikkel is always out there with normally mixed results, but this is really good! A new golden-way for IPAs?

Clearly a tasty IPA and fresh one ! The aroma is refreshing. Its very limited on the bars in Norway - Oslo. Took maybe 4 glass of Grassroots with my friends. Probably one of the tastiest IPA I have tasted !

Mild funk in the nose, light brett, lemon zest tart wheat mixed with some fruity hops, orange, apricot and hay, quite interesting. Taste of mildly tart sour wheat, zest, fruity, citrus hops, touch brett, hay, some candy, white pepper, touch sweet. Very light & easy to drink. Quite interesting, quite a nice beer.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar, SF. Clear gold, with a foamy white head. Aroma is funky and sour citrus fruit - great! Taste is incredible - sweet, sour, big citrus hops, sour/tart finish. Medium body, low carbonation. I loved this.

DanielBrown (3748) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Smells great, really lemon fresh hops - sweet like a defunct lemon polo. Finishes like a Belgian blonde, preceded immediately by a powdery, thin wheat and chalk glaze. Before all that it’s a beautifully fragrant, fruity and dry clean hoppy experience. This is actually magnificent.

pinkie (457) - New York, USA - APR 27, 2014
The beer pours with stately and pristine beauty to the glass. A lightly hazed and pastel lemon straw color with a crown of pillowy white foam that is slow to fall and clings to the glass leaving plenty of lace.

Nose is airy. The wheat is golden and subtly sweet grain. A bit of yeast that is powdery and silken on the nose. Instead of funky it’s more of a light dry scent and the brett is as light as a feather. There is a brilliant hop floral on this nose. Rose petals. For fruit a delicious ripe peach.

Taste is refined and demure. These flavors are all perfectly balanced and mysteriously complex. For an IPA that is rare. The malt is soft and gently sweet. The hops have the lightness of fresh rose petals. The yeast is demure and a bit sultry. The bitter on this one is perfection. It’s also gentle and somehow proper. The mouthfeel is creamy.

Rather than run roughshod over your palate like so many of today’s IPA’s this one is exquisite. It has polish and elegance. It’s a like a pretty bird that you have to stand far away to see or you might scare it away.

One of the best beers I have ever had. Cheers!
