bytemesis (2568) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy deep orange amber with a gigantic cloudy light orange head, slow to dissipate and leaving nice sticky lacing on the glass. Aroma is Brett, pine, citrus. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet, light bitter, light funk. Medium body, champagnelike mouthfeel, creamy. Very nice - I love what Anchorage does with Brett...

czar (3776) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
bottle shared by mathieuc, many thanks! hazy bright yellow with a low white head, little retention, traces of lacing. brett-plenty, fruitiness - pears, wild cherries, and even a tropical touch with few herbs and spices - pepper, cardamom. white grapes and light oaky along with soft barn notes. hint of acidity, medium hopping - citrus-plenty and welcomed resin in this lightly sweet but balanced brew that ends quite bretty-dry for a crisp but also smooth mouthfeel. champagne-like carbonation, light body - almost oily texture, very nice dry bretty and lightly piney but mostly citrus finish. very good brew!

mathieuc (983) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2013
UPDATED: APR 11, 2013 Bottle from nate321, thanks a lot Nate! Pours cloudy yellow with not much head... Lets dig further. Initial aroma is a full brett attack with hops coming late to the party. Really nice. Not sure if it is coming from the brett or from the hops but I pickup a lot of citrus: orange, grapefruits. In fact there is even some tropical fruit aromas and flavors in there. Taste is dry like it should with a medium-high level of bitterness. Flavors again are of classic brett barnyard with a lot of fruitiness and of course hops shining through. This was a damn fine drink, yo.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - APR 6, 2013
Bottle shared with Svans Hærge. Lethal explotion at takeoff. The cork left a serious mark in the ceiling, but was never found again. Poors an enormous bubbling off-white head, which turns into an unclear orange beer. The aroma is magnificent. Horse staple, grapefruit, sweet citrus and herbs. Fresh bubbling palate, wellbalanced complex flavor, ligt acidic, medium sweet and bitter. Moutharoma is very intriguing aswell. Mandarine, grapefruit, herbs and that lovely brett. Awsome

Tmoney99 (10073) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear yellow pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus and brett aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & citrus finish of moderate duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

65cl bottle fro hopduvel in Gent. Nice dark amber, copper body with very big and sparkling off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit. Nice light sour citrus taste and bitter hops. A little too strong carbonation. **

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Thanks to Matt for this bottle! Pours a very hazy golden hue, with a large quickly dissipating head. The aroma on this one might be as fresh as I’ve ever smelled in a beer -- pungent, but absolutely delightfully crisp. Vibrant carbonation, too. Take a grassy Belgian farmhouse ale, give it the intrigue of a healthy dose of hops, and then the depth and funk offered by brett -- great concept, and well executed. Flavor is right in line. Dry finish, with lingering grassy hops on the back end. This would be an absolutely ideal sunny summer day brew. I’m impressed!

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle at home from drinkstore
Pours lively hazy light amber with pillowy offwhite head. Sweaty feet, sherbet hops and silage on the nose made up for by intensely bitter taste followed by citrus pith and mango, dry finish. Great level of carbonation that foams in the mouth like sherbert, with grassy yeast flavours. Interesting and fairly challenging beer.
