Malice is the land between sour beer and Brett beer. The beer was brewed with over 100 pounds of tamarind, blood orange, and lime zest. Dirty straw orange in color, itís bursting with earthy funky tartness and finishes with heavy citrus skin and tart citrus. The land between is so good!

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear amber with a fuzzy off-white head. Aroma of sourness, malt and citrus. Sour fruit flavor, kind of like Sweet Tarts, giving way to some orange before a sour finish.

Bottle @ home. Bright orange pour with a white head. Tart cherry and raisin on the nose. Lots of orange, a little bit of funk, and citrus. Sort of earthy and tangy. There is a good bit of sourness to the flavor. Citrus peel, some citrus zest, and tangy tamarind. A little earthy.

a sweet murky thick bretty amber ale. Nothing sour in there, the brett def needs some time to develop. Will be cool to see what happens with this.

bottle to snifter. Nose is earthy, horsey, sweaty. Pour is a hazy, reddish orange, with a small white head. Taste is sweaty, horsey, lightly tart, with a caramel malt backbone. Very very earthy and dirty as it warms. Citrus seems a bit faint in the flavor. Overall, ok, but not a beer I would seek out again.

500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber/copper with a cream-colored head. Aroma of light Brett and tartness, a lot of blood oranges and other citrus/sour fruit, some pale and light caramel malts, and hints of spices. Flavor the same with the tart beer and blood oranges blending nicely. Average texture. A surprisingly good beer.

Bottle at Jamesí house for the End of History tasting. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft acid on the nose, a touch of wood and some herbal notes. Medium bodied, a bit of herbal notes, acid, hints of licorice, strawberry bubblegum. Long slow acid and tangy tart wood with lingering strawberries.

Draft at funkatorium. Pours orange with a white head. Leaves some solid lacing in the glass. Solid orange notes on the nose. Lots of orange on the tongue. Finishes on the dry side. Solid!

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Sour cherries and oranges sweating in the barn, leading to tartness and bracing dryness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam lays upon the hazy amber.
-The fruitiness is hard to pin down, but it remains this beerís best feature, imho.
-The funk and acidity donít meld well in every sip.
-The flavor profile is not as refined as most Wicked Weed creations (even though it is very enjoyable).

On tap at The Funkatorium.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
A lightly hazed golden amber ale with a thick frothy lacing light mocha head. In aroma, pleasant fruity biscuit malt with grassy hops, light mineral notes, Brett notes, cork character, dry and smooth. In mouth, a nice dry and puckering, red grapeskins, grassy hops, nice and puckering. On tap at Funkatorium.

ChainGangGuy (4600) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Appearance: Served up a dark orange body in hue, fairly hazed, with a small though sustained white, gently fluffed head.

Smell: Slim malts hinting of day-old biscuits, leathery dried oranges and light, albeit fragrant lime peel with some brett tones but also some light lactic tones.

Taste: Restrained toasted biscuity maltiness enveloped in a well-rounded, earthy funkiness. While the acidic lime and tart blood oranges serve as a somewhat subtle, but entirely complimentary character. Lightly spicy. Modest oak barrel quality. Scantly lactic through to the citrusy, brightly carbonated, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel.

Overall: Good stuff! Charmingly drinkable and tasty throughout.
