durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle from the brewery in STL. Clear amber pour with about a finger of beige head. Some lacing. Nose is soft fruits--mild peaches and apricots and a touch of apple. Some earthy action as well and a bit of spice near the end. Light bitterness.

Ontape (423) - Valley Village, California, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle. Murky orange with a visible life and a fluffy off-white head. Somewhat typical funky belgian nose with a light odd bit of cinnamon / bread pudding hiding in there. Taste is fruity and a bit sweet, would prefer a drier finish.

kbudd19 (782) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle shared with my wife. Golden hazy colour with nice frothy head. Aroma is brett funk, citrus, apricot, and hay. Taste is sour citrus, orange peel, and blue cheese, finishes dry, a touch thin, with medium carbonation. I sat on this bottle for about 10 months and my oh my has the brett character ever come to life, lots of funk in this one and pretty damn tasty overall.

wedgie9 (2490) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Tasted in July 2013 from a capped 750mL bottle that Adam and I picked up during a baseball trip in St. Louis. Pours golden orange with a thick white head that leaves thick, messy lace. The nose is light bread malt with funky and spicy brett funk. The flavor is very dry and is a vehicle to showcase the spicy and funky brett yeast. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long, funky, spicy, and light bread malt finish.

troyc (2776) - Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2015
[Tap] Pours a hazy orange color with a lot of dense head on top. Yeast and Brett in the nose. Pear, green apple and floral notes make an appearance as well. The taste is of sweet fruits, grass, grains, clove and crackers. Dry finish. Lively carbonation. Good.

mcberko (7808) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark golden with a small white head. Aroma reveals notes of Belgian yeast and sweet cereal malts - not getting any brett. Flavour is identical, with sweet cereal, Belgian yeast and bready malt. Not very complex, with quite a doughy finish. It’s okay.

cbfobes (2601) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2015
On tap at Perennial, pours a hazy golden orange with a bubbly white head and lacing in the glass, the aroma is of fruit at first with some of the brett and the dryness coming through, the flavor has a sweeter front end with some belgian yeast and candy sugar but then turns tart and dry with the brett in the finish, interesting.

AirForceHops (3773) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 26, 2014
Still yet another 750 ml bottle Got at Binny’s during my Chicago Black Friday trip. Cloudy gold /orange in color with thin head. Smells of spent grain, light fruit and light yeast.

Flavor is a good amount chewy yeast with hints of fruit upfront. Light esters banana, bubblegum and weak citrus hints. I don’t pick out much in the way of the Brett yeast character but it still has some nice flavors. Lighter body with a higher then desirable carbonation level. The chewy yeast doesn’t really come out in the body as much as the first half of the snifter indicated to me. The Brett is subdued.
