750mL bottle, pours a cloudy, opaque dirty orange with a huge, foamy, lingering beige head. Nose is extremely funky and wild, with loads of the brett dominating, horse blanket and some some lemon zest. Flavour brings out humungous brett, loads of horse blanket, lots of citrus zest, and more brett. A HUGE brett bomb and extremely funky and wild. Finishes dry, funky and wild - not really much hop character, as they’ve been overtaken by the brett, basically making this is a saison rather than an IPA. This is exactly how I love my brett beers - uncompromising and with everything still tasteful. Amazing stuff.

Funked aroma with punches of hay, horse blanket, lemon and pine. Heavily carbonated, with an absolute white head. Floral, citrus, and tart tastes.

Nice golden color w/ big pillowy white head. Aromas & flavors are all of the good parts from a funky farmhouse brew & west coast style IPA. Dank, barnyard, grapefruit, funk, sour nectarine, dry, pine. A perfect combo & balance of both styles!

Wow. Weird beer. Poured orange with a TON of head. Dank smell, almost like a dirty diaper. Big carbonation and can't stop belching. Grapefruit, bitter, and grassy taste. Can't taste hops over the bubbles. Don't love it but don't hate it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really interesting and I liked the sour brett added to the hoppiness and saison barnyard flavors and smells. Great musty earthy hop aroma. Taste is wet horse blanket, soft gooey cheese, nuts, dough and rusty metal. Clean med mouthfeel. Unripe grapes, there is alot going on here. Amber gold red color with bubbly clear white head. Overall nice flavors and again the character of the saison and the brett together with the hops work well together.

Very funky. seems more Anchorage than Mikkeller. The IPA part of the equation seems to be lost in this brew.

crackedmachine (471) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with a massive, bubbly head that slowly diminishes into a fluffy, foamy pale tan. Sweet, fruity citrus hop aroma bursts from bottle when cork is popped. However, in the glass that aroma is overshadowed by an overwhelming Brett funk...perhaps the most intense Brettanomyces aroma I have encountered. Reminds me of my job cleaning horse stables when I was a kid. Not the typical hint of barnyard, but rather you are right in the stable raking out old hay. Flavor, too, is heavily dominated by Brett, although somewhere beneath lurks a hoppy, citrus-forward IPA. Very bitter and pungent with a long lingering finish. Very lively, effervescent mouthfeel. The flavors don’t come together harmoniously, although this improves slightly as it warms. If you are interested in an intense barnyard experience, give it a try.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a tall white head. Really nice blend of Brettanomyces funk and hops on this one. Lots of citrus qualities of grapefruit and tangerine, light orange peel, as well. Heavy on the pineapple aromas and nice earth and fruit qualities. A touch of bread to open up the palate followed by big hop and Brett flavors. Lots of citrus zestiness and a bit of a tropical character, driven by pineapple flavors. A touch of grass and earth as well as a moderate bitterness and a nice dry finish.
