Gorgeous, thick blonde pour. The aroma is a medley of everything expected in proper proportions; citrus, peppercorns, green spice, and leafy hops. Brett becomes obvious in a big pineapple tang that doesn’t really show sourness yet, and there’s a substantive white wine oak character that serves to smooth everything over. Also like the way the zesty greenness of the hops kind of dances around, hard to follow.

Ripe wheat and hops flavor, highlighted by clove, white tea, and green herbs. The wine yeast constantly seems to surround things here, and the brett is of course laid back; as such the flavor of this right now is a lovely depiction of hops, wheat, and oak/wine in quiet harmony. When the brett comes roaring out it will surely be fabulous in a new way, but the flavor now is something to seek out. It’s pungent, and mysterious, but approachable.
Creamy palate with bite. There’s a pungency in the finish that reminds me of what Bam Biere used to taste like. Coriander, and a certain bitter-saltiness. There’s so much going on here and because it’s all somewhat predictable, this is less than enchanting. Still, yes, it’s great.
Cloudy golden-yellow with very frothy white head. Beautiful fresh of the vine hop aroma. Big grapefruit flavor with ginger, butter, pepper and coriander followed by the crisp dry hops . I’m not picking up the sour that I thought would be there with Brett. reebtogi (6240) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
750ml corked bottle opened with a good pop and pours a cloudy straw color with a huge rocky white head that retains weel and leaves some good lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with some grass and hints of yeast. Taste is a fruity and grainy malt sweetness and an earthy hop bitterness and some yeast in the finish. Overall, a very interesting brew which is medium bodied with genereous carbonation and highly recommended. deyholla (11505) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellowish gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice combination of light fruit, light pine and citrus hops, with lmust/funk and a hint of clove. Flavor begins with light fruit and musty grass hops with a bit of citrus and funk underlying. Slightly dry finish. Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012

All sorts of things were going on here, almost all of which were in balance. Didn’t really pick up on the Brett, but the fruit was there (not in an overwhelming manner either). Slightly light in the body with a watery mouthfeel, but otherwise exceptional. Tropical fruit and wheat were the principle flavors. Exceptional aroma.
