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.

Not bad. Iím unsure of the value of aging an IPA, and further with Brett. As a sour itís a bit above average, but thereís nothing here reminiscent of its pale ale roots.

Bottle, shared during our epic night at MicroBar in Reykjavik, with Arnie and Stein. Bright hazy yellow body with a creamy, non-stop head. Beautiful wheat and hop and funk marriage, fresh pineapple, gooseberry, a little cat pee even. Insanely drinkable! Like a hopfenweisse mmmmmmm!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a very pale yellow color, highly carbed with a small lasting white head. The aroma is subtle and pleasant with citrus and florals accented by some pineapple and hay from the brett. The flavor is really good with more pineapple, florals, hay, crackers, minor citrus acidity and a funky, floral bitter finish. Not really phenolic at all, just funky fruity and floral. Good effervescent, refreshing body. I really liked this one.

24/III/14 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 20/XI/15 (2014-307)
Clear blond beer, big irregular white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: citrus, bit piny, pineapple, passion fruits, mango, sweet and fruity. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: fruity, lots of citrus, pineapple, bit piny, grapefruit, little sour. Aftertaste: more citrus, lime and lemon, sour notes. Didnít know it was a brett beer until I entered my review. Maybe thatís a good thing, means itís been done subtle and well balanced. Or maybe it means Iím a phoney who canít tell an IPA from a sour. Or maybe Iím just a drunken hobo trying to score whatever stills my hop addiction. Who will tell?

On tap at Mikkeller bar Stockholm. Pale golden-yellow color with white head. Light malty, citrusy hoppy, yeasty and funky bretty aroma. Taste is the same, starting malty sweet and becoming fruity and funky. Medium bitter finish.
