mathieuc (3166) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
(Was disturbed during our tasting, will have to re-rate! ;) Pours a hazy yellow with a good white head that leave superior lacing. Aroma of fruits (yellow), hops, brett. Taste is sweet with a good balancing tartness, feeling juicy. Carbonation was good, I believe I downed my glass quite fast (to catch up with the others). Really good altough I’m sure I didn’t enjoy all the subtleties.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle: Thanks, Steve. Cloudy bright yellow body. Chunky white head crackles & fades quick. Huge bretty aroma; dusty cotton, wood, funky white pepper, musk, old pineapple, cobweb, mild mineral water. Flavor of light mango, pineapple, dusty cotton & moldy barnyard funk. Woody, loaded with Brett, hay, & mild horsey notes. A small touch of vinous white grape in the finish. Super effervescent mouth feel, lofty & prickly. Good stuff.

Lukaduke (2937) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a hazy golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. On the nose its sweet with lots of fruit notes, peach, lemon, pineapple, candied oranges, smarties candy, tree sap, grass... lots going on here just a bit overwhelming. The palate is complex but a touch disjointed... one end is a lot of the sweet fruit and tart candied smarties.. the other end is funky brett, sappy spruce and pine. Complex and interesting but lacking a bit of harmony when all is said and done.

Bacterial (2775) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2014
Hazy yellow pour with a thick white head. Grassy and funky nose. Really fun taste. Sweet taste and a bit of a sweet finish. Hints of apple and apricot and other fruits that I can’t put my finger on. Thanks to Ryan for sharing!

wedgie9 (2596) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours cloudy yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thick lace. The nose is dry sourdough, a touch of lemon peel, and a ton of funky and vinous yeast. The flavor is a bit more tart with gooseberry, lemon, very dry, vinous, and spicy with a touch of lightly sweet Meyer lemon. The body is lactic full with lively but smooth carbonation, and a long tart vinous finish.
