2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clearish pale golden pour covered by a healthy white foam. Despite all its components, hops remain the dominant feature, throwing fragrant citrus and earth laden aromas at the nose. In mouth, it feels a bit loose, kinda oily and very dry, combining with the hops to the point of astringency, with a powdery, mineral tang... altogether, frankly a bit rough when the bitterness is anything but subtle. At the same time, itís thin. One of those rare beers in which I feel a little more body and sugars would be welcome, making the edges smoother. Here, the dryness frmo the brett is noticeable, but the flavours, I would not have guess any wild yeast in there if Iíd not read it previously. As for the wheat, in this thinness and hop slaughter, it is quickly forgotten. Perhaps if Iíd gotten to try it when it was really fresh, Iíd have been satisfied with a focus on awesome fresh hops, but alas, a beer brewed in Belgium by Danes and exporter all over the US starts with a few strikes when trying to attempt just what seems reasonable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured in tulip. This beer confuses me, it is very light, drinkable and doesnít have the hops kick of an ipa. Nose is wheaty, slighty estery (banana) but does not seem to carry heavy aroma hops. Color is golden and the beer sit beautifully in the glas with a thin white head. Taste is a bit everywhere for me and I donít super enjoy it. Iíve had other wheat pale ales (such as stone and wood pacific ale) that i though hit the mark. This one was a bit boring.

Blond beer with little saturation and a little bit of fine white foam.
Smells yeasty fresh and floral.
Has a long bitter aftertaste.
The palette is full and non alcoholic.
Has a lot of flavor for the alcohol %. Very heavy on the palette tough.

"Mikkeller #105! Bought on site without seeing it was an IPA, OR a brett beer. Happy day to me! Very much like an Anchorage Bitter Monk Jr. Same attributes, just a lighter beer. Equal parts hops and funk. Nice, dry flavor, with the wheat being relegated to the background. Opens up really nice and is easy drinking yet tasty and complex."

Bottle. Hazy light golden pour with a pale head. Nose has some sour mango, funk and grains. Taste has exotic fruits upfront which leads to a funky bitter finish.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Tap at Le äenk, 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.
