Great beer! Like the inclusion of a little Brett characteristics. They are unique and add an extra depth level.

On draft at Mackenzie in Minneapolis. Pors a clear, golden amber color with a big white head. Aroma is light, hoppy, orange citrus. Medium on the palate with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, some Brett funk, with a bitter, funky finish. Very different. Tasty though.

On tap. Interesting hop flavors playing off the yeast aftertaste here. It seems to work well in my book.

Minnesota Winterfest 2013. Hazy gold color with a medium head. Smells like a barn with light lemon notes. Horsey and hay-like doesn’t begin to describe the flavor. Light earthy bitterness.

Winterfest 2013. Tap. Dry with yeast and lightly bitter hops. There is an earthy character, and a dry finish. It seems like the brett could use more time to make this more wild.

Apricot with tiny white head. Aroma is malty and a bit funky. Nice floral and citrus hops with some good Brett character. Smooth and medium bodied.

Draft at Grumpy’s NE. Initially smells somewhat tart or salty but then more sweet and hoppy. Hazy gold with sudsy off white head. Unique and somewhat Strange mix of hips and funk.wasnt sure I liked it at first but as my palate adjusted I really dig it. Nice lace.

Atom (1358) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2012
On tap at Grumpys NE, pours a clear golden/orange with a large off-white head. Aroma of Brett Musky, grapefruit, pineapple, candy, and caramel malt. Taste has a nice level of bitter Musky Brett balanced nicely with bitter hops, sweet citrus and tropical fruits. Brett plays really well here with the hops and alcohol level, nice!

Was hoping for it to be as good as bitter monk or better but it isn’t. Still solid, a bit sweet,.

Tap @ Darkness Day 2012. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Mild brett, white wine, a bit grapefruity, straw aroma. Kind of bready yeasty, moderately bretty, lemon/grapefruity, a bit tangy flavor. Not my favorite but it was pretty easy to drink.
