Flowey aroma with a slight hint of Cider. Taste about the same but not mainstream. Very nice beer!

robertjm (830) - Albany, California, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Draft at Mikkeller - Aromas of wheat grass wafting in the wind. Very drinkable sour. More of a hop character than I’d expect from a Brett.

rami_pl (1066) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 27, 2016
butelka, warka do 05/05/21. lekko metnawe czy tam mocno opalizujace, jasno bursztynowe, z dosc kosmiczna, nieco mydlana, prawie biala piana. Aromaty - dziczyzna. ale jaka fajna, miodowo-konska, owocowo-stajenna, bardzo mila w odbiorze, jest tez nieco bananow, cytrusow, jakich innych owocow swojskich (jablka czy tam gruszki czy cus... a wiem, melon miodowy, ten slodki!). w ustach pelne, dosc wysoko wysycone, slodkie, nadal bardzo funky w tym dosc slodko-owocowo-miodowym stylu. Generalnie wrazenie jest, ze piwo ma rownowage duzo bardziej w strone slodowo-drozdzowa, a mimo to chmielowe aromaty sa ewidentnie obecne. goryczka niewysoka, i nieco przyprawowa. takie tez (nieco przyprawowe ale tez znow funky na slodko) - posmaki. Mimo, ze dosc konsystentne, nadal odswiezajace. Sumarycznie: Orval na sterydach. Klasa.

UXO (1127) - CANADA - JAN 23, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of ivory head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grapefruit, stone fruit, caramel malt, dried dark fruit, light brett funk. (8/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-high bitter, mild funk. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry finish. (4/5) A very pleasing BSPA, with lots of wild character. I like it, and it’s certainly worth trying - and I don’t mean to damn with faint praise here, but: it’s not quite as interesting as I was hoping/expecting it would be. A little more tartness or a little more sweetness might bring this a little more alive… so to speak. (16/20)

On tap at hopaholic pub. Amber colour with a smal white head. Nose of citrussy ipa. Taste is also a hint of sourness with medium bitterness. Very well balanced, but feels like an ipa for me.

KoNrRiI (959) - Århus, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2016
0.2 draft. Hazy, dark copper color and a small, off-white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, somewhat sour, notes of fermented fruits appear as well. Taste is sweet, very floral, fruity - unusually good. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and sourer than the rest. Overall a very good beer. The initial taste is insanely pleasant.

cmacklin (572) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy, golden orange with a massive, frothy, long lasting, beige head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, spices, candy, yeast, grapefruit and light brett. Sweet, fruity flavour of peach, grapefruit, caramel malt, spices and yeast with a dry, bitter, hoppy, astringent, alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Well done.

bursprak (1712) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2015
Tap @ Mikkeller bar Aarhus. Hazy amber pour with a generous head. Notes of yeast, grapefruit, lemon rind, some light sweet malts and biscuits. Refreshing!

rekvium (326) - Odense C, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2015
From tap. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of funk, citrus, definate hop character, slightly tropical, light earthy. Taste is lots of funk and brett, light citrus, floral, low carbonation, very enjoyable.

Sample. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of hops, grape, bretty, fruity, plums. Taste is hops, bretty fruity, quite fresh, light sweetness, dried fruit, light alcohol. Good balance. And quite Hoppy aroma.

Fritz123 (1533) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Draft at the Oak Barrel. Pours a deep amber with haze in a small snifter. Big head. Somewhat sweet aroma of candied fruits, prunes, raisins, biscuit, Belgian yeasts, brett and caramel. Taste similar with the mix of the sweet fruits, biscuit, brett and Belgian Yeasts. Medium mouth, slick. Fuller body.
