pours a dark copper with a thick off white head. Aroma of brett, caramel malt and muted hops. Taste is like an old malty IPA with brett. I dont like hoppy beers aged in barrels, the hops become muted, the brett characteristic is nice but i cant get over the old ipa taste

Bottle:   Dark straw, orangish, a bit dirty, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Very soft sweet Brett like character.   A little barnish, musty, but minor.   Similar on the tongue, not too bright, a touch of powdery sugar sweetness.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Fast finish, touch of Brett, musty/barnish notes, fairly pale.   Tiz okay, but a little light.   Minor dryness, not much really shining about this one.   Nothing off, but a little boring.   Thanks Bob!

kaser (2700) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Interesting beer. Poured from 22oz bottle at home. Orange with a ton of foamy white head. Fruity and wheat flavors. Lemon and grapefruit tastes also. Flowery and citrus aroma. Not bad for the style

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange-amber pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, orange peel, touch of brett, hints of earth, oak, touch of yeasty notes with a hint of dough, bready notes, some grass as well. Taste is a mix of white fruit, dry bitter orange, hints of earth, grass, slight yeast, hints of bread, sough, some funk, oak, finishing bitter, dry. Tasty, but not great.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Bottle thanks to demmbonz! Pours crystal clear orange, large creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is Brett, a bit of nail polish, oak, vinous, hay, pepper. Flavor is light sweet but drying quickly, light funky, but with a bit of a medicinal quality rather than strong barnyard funk, light bitterness. Medium body, high carbonation.

Sampled at a STL tasting - Pours golden orange with an off-white head. The aroma has brett earth and horse blanket right6 off the bat. There is also pale malt and husky graininess. It has a medium grainy body with soft carbonation. The flavor begins with fruit, funk, bugs, paper, dryness and stone fruits. The finish is very husky and dry. I liked this one.

Iím not sure itís fair for me to rate this, it just isnít my style. That being said: Poured from 750ml bottle into a tall tulip glass. Hazy yellow-orange with thic white head. Strong, funky sour/ barnyard scent. Pretty complex taste with some bitter hop and tart vinegar taste, also a little malty sweetness to balance it out (but not too much). Overall, a really interesting beer. I just kind of donít get it.

750ml capped bottle shared by Brandon. We want to like this beer, its got a good heart. However, its just the perfect example of improperly handled Brett. Its goats oil, too herbally. Its all that is, I mean its good for poor Brett.

notalush (4855) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle - lightly hazy light orange - soapy lace - musty, lightly funky, lightly musky nose, with light notes of gingerbread, crackery malt, mildly tropical.Brett character (mango, pineapple), some herbal hops - flavor has some barnyard funk phenolics up front - this is followed by moderately tart acidity, some white grape skin - fairly dry, with some grassy, herbal bitterness on the tail end, with lingering musty funk - the finish is particularly brash, acidic, and unrefined, with a strong, woody, lingering bitterness - the finish particularly diminshes the experience, but there are some decent attributes.
