Dogbrick (8516) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Hazy orange-gold color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Brett, oak and fruit in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of brett yeast, oak and earthy malt. The finish is moderately sour with a citrusy aftertaste. Decent overall.

nuplastikk (4673) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Tap at Sidedoor. Filtered stained glass orange body. Foamy, steady off white head. Funked out brett, odd intense mango, pungent island fruit. An odd creature, a little too far gone for a Pale Ale. Not much finesse, just sort of smacks you in the face with controlled infection. Unique, but seems like it would be best blended down or with something else. Not really that enjoyable. Needs to be dialed down, mellowed out. Challenging. Undesirable.

Pour from bottle at Zwanze Day 2014. Pour is slightly hazy golden orange with a big white head and good lacing. Light pineapple, bretty, straw, some grass, slightly funky, and biscuity aroma. Taste is bretty, mango, slightly grassy, lemoy, and orange peel with a highly dry and bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad. Poundable.

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

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
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 (3020) - 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 (6323) - lansing, Michigan, 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.
