douglas88 (8412) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Big bottle picked up in Corvallis. Pours a mostly clear copper color with a large white head. Deep funky flavors with toast, leaves, lemon. Light tartness, some funk, white wine, vinous at times, fluffy palate, earthy. Caramel and more citrus zest. Really good. Mellow and drinkable but complex. Impressive.

AdamChandler (4519) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Bottle at home, paid $27 at the local beer store here in Vermont. Crisp apple juice looking almost chardonay beer. nose is grapey, vinous and sweet. Taste is crisp and earthy. mild bitterness, almost like tangerine. Then it’s followed by fresh cut apples. very interesting and I’d have it again if the price were a bit lower.

deyholla (10008) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2014
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.

brystmar (1314) - 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.

Boutip (5910) - 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.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared by Dogbones). Looks good; a hazy lemon yellow with white head and a bit of tiny sediment. Smells good too; white wine, oak, funk, and lemon zest. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good stuff!
