northropfrye (2247) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Orange amber body loads of foamy head. Interesting kid of funky but not really sour at all. In fact there's a bit if hoppy bitterness and sweet tropical fruit. Some grapefruit and a touch of tartness.

slowrunner77 (5977) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
"A weaker aroma than the other sour in this release. Slightly bigger body, more wood, and a hint of that stinky cheese thing going on. My second favorite of the 6."

Stuu666 (2850) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours amber, light funk, sweet and fruity, not bad.

godofsky (274) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
bottle. pours a hazy amber with a massive pillowy white head. all i’m getting in the aroma is moldy soap. bretts apparent in the taste, but being a pale ale this beer is too hoppy to be a good sour ale. it is nicely carbonated and surprisingly thirst quenching for its ABV, but overall i’m not impressed as i was expecting something entirely different.

VsXsV (2323) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Almost clear Albert liquid with medium white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, barnyard, sweat, bread, tangerine and citrus. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of tropical fruit and bread. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice.

smith4498 (3038) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Tried side by side with the Bruxellensis. Pours hazy golden orange color with off white head. Aromas of brett and dough with some funkiness. Lightly tart flavor with some doughy yeast. Medium body with average carbonation. Not as good as the Bruxellensis.

mgajdaczewa (552) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Niby nic, a cieszy! W aromacie sporo winogron, lekka dzikość. W smaku wytrawne, wręcz wodniste, lekka goryczka na finiszu, po ogrzaniu na 1 plan wychodzą coraz wyraźniejsze winogrona. Pijalny, orzeźwiający, dobrze uwarzony saison.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2014
Tap at Alewife, Baltimore - hazy orange - a well-executed brett pale - crisp, crackery malts, with a nice, dry, snappy bite - dusty, earthy, mild funkiness - strong hop bitterness compliments the dry brett character well - finish has a light acidity that lets the tropical notes from the brett come through - dry, bitter finish - nice.

Jow (2202) - New York, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Tap at bondurants pours ruby with no head. Nose is light Brett and doughy. Tastes of dough, lemongrass, barnyard and orange. Fresh and clean palate and quite dry. Only hints if sourness and bit of red wine on finish.
