750 ml bottle. Pours copper with full head. Aromas of pine, oranges, and light brett. Flavors of toffee, marmalade, and toasted malts. Only slightly sour. Short bitter finish. Excellent.

Lagerboy (1372) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
3/6/2014, Mikkeller Tasting Night @ The Brownstone, 4th and final round: shared 750 ml bottle. Mostly clear lighter copper, lasting off-white foam. Brett funk, floral hop aroma. Hybrid taste of floral citric herbal PNW hops mixed with a bretty funkiness, bitter and yeasty, low malt profile. Average carbonation, medium body, more aggressively hopped. Citrus increases as it warms. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys) Paired with a creamy chicken pot pie filling and baking powder biscuit.

drowland (6259) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2014
1/17/14. On tap at Proof. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Funky aroma, plenty of brett and wildies in there, floral, fruity, a hint of a metallic aspect. Sweeter and maltier flavor than I was expecting, caramel, fruitiness, Brett, touches of yeast spiciness. Not bad.

Moolesen (247) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle 75cl. Red/orange with a big beige head. A bit sour nose from the wild yeast. Medium rich, not impressive at first. The hop is not as present as I expected. Tne wild yeast is too dominant. Not my style.

Aurelius (4443) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Hazy tea-bronze with an oatmeal head. Vaporous, fresh, sweet, fruity, amber malt aroma with light chemical tones and citrus peel. Not as edgy as it smels. Woody, APA bitter. Medium-heavy body. Woody bitter finish and tangy. OK to slightly pretty good. On tap, Proof.

PorterPounder (5758) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Brewing Company - on tap. Dark orange pour, medium thick off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma is that of sweet kid’s cereal with some floral accents. Flavor has some apricot-like fruitiness, some overripe fruit, some weird funkiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Not a highlight of the evening.

curepute (140) - New York, USA - JAN 11, 2014
My bottle is called Alive not "USAlive" Big malty nose with a good hint of brett. Mahogany with a 3 finger white foamy head, falls down to half a finger. Big malts on the taste that open up to a hop bitterness. The brett pops in near the end for a brief moment. Finishes like a double ipa. I think the brett needs time to do something here. Good besides.

alkolas510 (748) - SWEDEN - DEC 31, 2013
Brunrödfärgad med nästan inget skum alls! lite kolsyra och doft av dessertvin! I smaken är det dessertvin och humle blandat med malt! Bäst före 3/2-15
