Scopey (6197) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle thanks to Deeblo. It pours cloudy light orange with a medium white head. The nose is farmyard, sulphur/fart, spice, sweet tangy orange and pear. The taste is dough, light tartness, orange, peach, sherbet, pear, melon, light alcohol warmth, pithy grapefruit and pineapple with a dry, lightly tart finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Hides the alcohol pretty well. Certainly tastes a lot better than it smells, but I would like it a bit more sour.....

after4ever (6062) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2013
750, corked and strung. Thanks, A & E! You guys are awesome. What a great treat. Pours a murky medium amber with bright golden blond edges and a dense and creamy platinum blond head that starts out as a gigantic PITA and never really goes away. You’re constantly dealing with huge cotton balls of lace and an endless supply of head that endless threatens to geyser over the top of the glass if you’re not careful with the pour. Big tart swanky nose, lots of lemon, some basement, strawberries, some egg yolk...this cat just flat knows how to get parallel lines to fall into patterns like railroad tracks. The aromatics bundle together in a harmonious sequence of fairly disparate qualities that end up being much more interesting together. Creamy medium body with boundlessly lively carb. Tart caramel, lemon, basement, strawberries, moss, egg yolk, and mineral dryness on the mid palate. The mineral notes assert more near the end, along with the strawberries, leaving the swallow and the follow a nice cling of berries and rocks. This is a wonderful beer and I should drink it all the fucking time.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a medium white head. Aroma of pineapple, brett, a little funk, and some slightly tart notes. Flavour is very complex, bringing out notes of brett, pineapple, Belgian yeast and some farmhouse notes. Uber complex, with the pineapple notes adding a wonderful dimension on of the bretty, funky body. Wonderful depth, with very lively carbonation, which is perfectly fitting. A most excellent fruity bretty wild ale.
