mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Big pop from the bottle, pours like a wit, very cloudy and golden, HUGE white head that takes quite some time to settle. Aroma is odd to say the least, smells like a just cleaned mens bathroom, lemon cleaner, urinal cakes, aroma isnt too pleasant. Taste is a whole different story, this is delicious, lemon zest, ypu can really taste the tart orange flavor from the kumquat as well, some nice brett funky must, some pepper, dry wine finish, nice little hop bite to it, this brew is extremely complex in flavor, my second brew from this brewer, and Ive loved them both, would love to try more from these guys.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a large champaign type head. Stays around forever. Smells like bathroom soap. Really weird aroma almost bad. Taste is pretty good but the smell has got to go. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml caged and corked bottle, Batch #2, April 2012. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a huge off-white head that grew for a while and took some time to settle. Also, theres a lot of lacing. The brew smells like lemon peel, brett, hay, peppery spice and some coriander. The taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but theres also the addition of some white wine and pineapple flavors. I liked the taste of this beer more and more the longer I drank it. Mouthfeel/body is medium, and its very carbonated. I think this is a pretty good overall brew, although I do wish the carbonation was lower. $13.99 a bottle.

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2012
clear sparkling pale gold with a tall large-bubbled white head. perfumed white grape and brett band-aid / plastic in the first whiff, developing more spice and fruit notes as it opens. lively carbonation, light body, mild to medium tartness, mild oak presence. wonderfully explosive but still soft carbonation across the middle, its surprisingly full and rotund for having such a light and delicate malt base. dry white wine and floral esters and brett must abound. a bit herbal at times, then more floral, then more wheat-focused, then a combination of white grapes and brett that comes across a little like botrytis. shape-shifting, restrained, balanced and delicious.

Patrickctenchi (6373) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Corked bottle: Big, throaty "pop"....lemon yellow with a huge, white, foamy, energetic head. Scent is amazing....Brett, yeast, lavender, ...almost perfume or designer soap-like.... Lemon, sweet wood.... Taste is a mellow piney hop...light acidic citrus....banana...cloves....pepper. Very Belgian-like in feel and complexity.... Really wonderful.

Pour from bottle. Nice fluffy off white head that retains on top light straw body throughout. Fair amount of Brett funk on the nose and lemon zest. Pineapple, pepper, Brett notes and somewhat dry finish. Enjoyable brew that will grow on you with every sip.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2015 anchorage does not dissapoint, they have entered that realm of buy anything they make. Big bretty aroma gives way to a spicey french oak flavor profile. Awesome stuff

NikkTwist (2965) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle at Eulogy. Marked Batch #2 April 2012. Hazy light gold pour with a huge overflowing pillowy head. Enough pressure that the cork nearly popped out on its own after the cage was off. Floral aroma with a bit of Brett funk. Taste brings out some juicy dry citrus flavors. Kumquats. White grapefruit pith. Lemon zest. Sage. Thyme. Coriander. Galaxy hops are pronounced. Brett sour is present but not overpowering. Dry pepper bitterness balances it out. Big carbonation. Fizzy and foamy. Head continues to overflow several glasses into the bottle. Some more aging should smooth out some of the sharper dry notes and bring up more sour.
