ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, - MAY 6, 2013
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale straw yellow, with a large white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves decent lacing. Sour brettanomyces notes in the aroma mix with green apple and corn to create a strange blend. Sour notes up front mix with grapefruit hops. Tart apple and grainy corn come into the mid-palate, with some spicy and sour yeast characteristics in the finish. This definitely the strangest beer I have had in a while, with the grainy corn flavour and sour notes making a very odd combination, like a weird blend of cheap lager and wild ale.

Hourgy (1) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2015 does not count
Best way to describe it is a champagne sort of ale beer. I got a bottle in Chicago at bar $27 what not recommend it for the price.

csaso (1571) - Missouri, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle - big pillowy head, cloudy medium straw color, nice light malt (almost like wheat) aroma and flavor, just enough sourness from the Brett to make it super refreshing, very good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyBeer2112 (2595) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2014 I sure am glad I bought this, its just the sort of light funky beer I’m into these days. Very pale yellow hazy color, large foamy rocky meringue of a head. Very effervescent. Nose is funky bretty, soured cream, blue cheese, damp straw. Dry herbal, bready, light cheesy funk, no acidity, maybe a hint of hop but not really more than a lingering bitterness at the dry finish. Fizzy almost carbonic mouthfeel. I have no idea what they mean by post-prohibition style ale. I wouldn’t call this a speciality grain either, as its no more speciality than any lager that uses corn and rice, neither of which do anything here other than lighten the body. Having said that I’d have no idea what to call it in any case, not that it is important anyway, just rambling on at this point.

TEJA (1519) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2014
Draught at City Beer in San Fransisco. Huge, white moussy head. Clowdy yellow color. Small lactobacillus aroma with a bit of stable. Fruity (pear and apricot) taste with a small acid to freshen up the beer. Plesent dry with a small fine bitterness.

Slubgob (208) - West Hartford, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bomber into footed glass. Hazy lemonade yellow. Strong bright white head that settles quickly. Nose of tropical fruit (papya?) and some barnyard funk. Fairly carbonated in the mouth. In the mouth, tart but fruity up front -- reminds me of biting into fruit without the sugar, Funk comes through in the mid, and I’m almost getting a smokey hint like a rauchbier? Weird. Finishes very dry, almost acerbic, like pitting into the pith of a lemon or grapefruit. Suggestion of pepper too. Unique, with lots of unusual flavors for a beer. I’d be interested to see what it does with food, maybe sushi?

joeneugs (3794) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 9, 2014
On draft at Caps & Taps. It pours a very pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is nice and bright with lemon and grapefruit citrus, mild wheat and peppery spice. The flavor is minerally and herbal with some pepper and a little soap. Citrus grapefruit bitterness with more dank herbs in the finish. Tasty, but a little too aggressive for me.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Yellow, light hazy appearance with a white head. Aroma and flavor of brett, earthy notes, funky yeast and pilsner malts. Light to medium body, crisp and refreshing with a pleasant, dry finish. Nice brew.
