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, it’s 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 I’d not read it previously. As for the wheat, in this thinness and hop slaughter, it is quickly forgotten. Perhaps if I’d gotten to try it when it was really fresh, I’d 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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6% ABV. IPA
Light yellow hazy color. True to its wheat beer roots, it is a pale hazy gold coming in at about SRM 6
Light lemon nose.
Pronounced carbonation. Light clean mouthfeel. Again like a light witbier if not for the pronounced hops
Bitter hops no aroma. Not lingering.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade. Pours a light clear yellow:almost like a lightly botrytized wine in appearance. Clear but subtle funk on the nose. A good head. Very -- too? -- clean on the palate. But the brett comes through and saves the day. Lovely long, bitter finish. All in all, very nice indeed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Gwangan Taphouse and Beer for Geeks. 1st time: It has a wonderful bright cloudy gold. Silky body Solid flavor but as it made a bunch of Best of lists in 2014 I was expecting more. 2nd time: It has a very grassy bitter ascerbic hoppiness with cheery wheat. Main takeaway: metallic funk.
