Bottle. Highly effervescent orange body with fluffy off white head that retains as a cap thru out. Leaves nice lacing. Nose of caramel, citrus, fruit and slight funk. Taste same. Mouthfeel crisp with dry orange rind finish. Awesome brew.

Slight sour. Murky deep red with a muddled taste. Oaky, plum skin, aged strawberries. velvety smooth. Could use a little more carb to liven it up.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was funky, of tarts, fruits and some yeast. The taste was of funk, yeast ,fruit, oak and some green apple. Nice.

Might have to revisit this one as I truly canít make up my mind. Dark murky scarlet pour with hints of ruby, crimson, and garnet. Eggshell crown. Caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, funk, oak, herbal and a subtle spice. Love the idea of this using Woodcut barrels...just not sure the fruit flavor combination works well for me. Another bottle will help.

I have had this beer on tap twice, I think two different batches. Both times I really did not enjoy it. I think it is the "house brett" which is akin to the disaster that was Hivaranno. Now this isnít as bad because its at least carbonated. Otherwise, sometimes its a thin line between a good brett beer and a bad brett beer. Chemical and solvent with feral type of brett dominates.
I swear to God, Iíll pistol whip the next guy that says íshenanigans!í

(750ml bottle) clear deep crimson, creamy deep tan head that sticks around. Nose of Brett, oak, caramel, floral, clover, fresh cut herbs. Taste of herbs, cherry, spices, cinnamon, not tart but funky and Brett forward.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle picked up in St. Louis. Pours a deep brown-red with an off-tan head. Nose is really neat. Vanilla, cherry pie, crackery with a sweet and earthy play to it. On tasting, it has picked up some subtle acidity but is more barrel and brett driven. Light sweetness/vanilla with a drying brett finish. Cool beer.

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a brownish, red tinged color with an off white head. Woody, fruity, caramel, citrus, some vanilla, and some funkiness.
