Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is grainy, lemony, funky and a hint spicy. Medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor delivers nice brett dryness, breadiness, moderate bitterness and light acidity. Finishes crisp, clean and fairly dry. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

Damn this is good. A big thanks to justdrinkit for bringing this back for me from the brewery. Pours a cloudy light apricot/gold pour. Nice fluffy white head. Flavors of hops, funk, wet hay, toothpick, tart roasted lemons. Leather, and barnyard funk. Damn straight.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle in Vail, shared with Jetson for Christmas. Thanks to lukaduke! Fucking gusher. Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with an off white head. Juicy orange, mango, grapefruity, pineapple, a bit grassy, slightly oaky aroma. Tart tropical fruity, quite pineapple bretty, oaky, fairly sour, vanilla flavor with a tangy, quite sour finish. Pretty tasty.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Batch #8. This brew pours a cloudy pale golden color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dank hops, yeast and citrus. Medium-bodied with a delicate floral hops character and flavors of citrus, earthy yeast and vinous oak. The finish is slightly funky with an oak and hops aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Coniferous brettanomyces builds floral and citrusy fireworks which can be witnessed while being hypnotized by an underlying oily, vanilla-rich oak.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the cloudy blond.
-The big, natural bubbles remain soft on the palate.
-The flavor profile is also peppery at times.
-The rusticity in this one is ably balanced with the oak. Both are nicely aromatic.

Bottle; from batch 8.
