Fritz123 (1001) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from a trade with a friend. Shared with Dan and Sean at the Pig. Pours a lovely yellowish-gold with just a tinge of haze. Small white head formed and lasted with nice varied lacing. Aroma was fruits like white grapes, pears, peaches and nectarines. Also a slight funky-bretty aroma as well. The taste was so damned good. All of the fruits on the nose come through nicely and well balanced. The mild funk and tartness from the wild yeasts hit you on the finish. Modestly dry finish and light body overall. I loved it!!

DrSilverworm (6369) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Tasted at a bottle share in a hotel room after the most recent Jackie-O’s bottle release. Hazy darker golden color. Hazy with tons of fine particles in the body. Thin white head. Some loose dots of lace. Funky bruised fermented citrus aromas. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. More sweet than sour. OK wild ale. A lot of yeast character.

Bottle shared at RBWG, the Grand Tasting portion. Pours a hazy pale gold with a soft white head. Notes of lemon, yogurt, lactic funk, cheesecloth, sweet dough, wine grapes, and straw. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet, funky, tart mouthfeel. Very good sour.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of vinous notes with some tart notes clearly identifiable. Taste is a mix between some vinous notes with some tart notes and light funky yeast undertones. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very solid mix between complex Brett notes with well-balanced acidity level.

brystmar (1257) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Bright lemon color, copious amounts of head & lace. Absurd stickiness all over my glass. Beautiful.

Smells like magic: so yeasty/grassy/funky, plenty sour, Brett galore. All of this bleeds onto the palate, assaulting my tongue with salvos of flavor. Damn, this may be the best Brett beer I've had yet. Super impressed.

Bottle at RBWG 2014 Grand tasting, thanks! Pours a hazy light yellow with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma a light slightly bitter/tart citrus with light fruit, flora and a hint of sweet grains underlying. Flavor has more grass and citrus with a light tartness, a bit of rose, and a dry wine finish.

joeneugs (3241) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Generously shared by Harpreet at the Livermore Saloon. Thanks! It pours a hazy light gold color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is full of moldy peaches and light farty funk. There’s some breadiness in there with wood, white wine and citric acid. The flavor has light, sweet tangerines, tropical fruit, sauvignon blanc grapes and spicy, funky brett in the finish. It’s only lightly sour with a full body and creamy mouthfeel. I wasn’t into the fecal heavy aroma, but the flavors and mouthfeel were superb. Really nice sour.

Bottle thanks to Diego. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong oak, wine, and yeast. Thick mouthfeel with fruit and light oak with nice dry finish. Really enjoyed this one.
