Brett, cheesy funk, musty pear, lemon nose. Clear amber, thick head. Dry, vinous, oak and twigs. Medium body, soft carbonation. Didn't get a lot hop character, but it's an elegant wild ale.

Pinball (12397) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2017
bottle from broxbeers.com
cloudy yellow, bubbly white head. foamed over after 30s when openend and kept volcano foaming for a minute or two. aroma of brett, flowery hops, very faint straw and lemongrass, malts. faint tartness, quite pleasant aroma overall.
flavor is slightly sourish, lemongrass , tea, brett, wine barrels (what i tasted bf looking it up was was barrels with something sourish in them). flavor is less crazy than most other belgian beers on wine barrels i have tasted, and i like this version better than most of its kind i've tasted - not so bittersweet/sour as they can get.

ctipping (2251) - Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2017
Bottle at the Parched Pig. Pours orange with a huge head and lots of floaty bits. Smells of red wine, grapefruit and pine hops, and some musty fruitiness. Taste is much more bretty. Immediate Brett flavor. Earthy and bitter. Red wine. Still retains some grapefruit. Back end is fruity, yeasty, and bitter. Well carbonated. I can't imagine this is all that fresh and is hardly what I'd call an IPA, but the grain and yeast profile that BFB uses works in this treatment as well.

oobawa (1792) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Very nice brett IPA, funky and bitter but offering a grassy citric sweetness that meshes well with the spicy, sparkly Belgian texture. Starts semisweet, wheat and hints of clove giving way to a firm, citric-floral middle, then gains a bready note before exploding on the finish, growing hoppy and wood-tinged, the oaking opening a vinous undercurrent that plays nicely off the growing barnyard funk. Finishes yeasty and dry. A little too bubbly for an IPA, but just right for a Belgian, so I won’t complain too much about the feel. Good beer.

mcberko (19173) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2017
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of funky brett, light red wine notes and citrus hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with a pleasant funky brett character upfront, accentuated with light red wine barrels and subdued citrus hops. Bretty, fairly vinous, and citrusy. Medium-high carbonation that is very fitting. Very good.

3.4
djd07 (15649) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle at RateBeer Best. Pours an orange gold with medium frothy white head. The aroma is brett, funk, floral, oak. Medium body, similar flavors to nose, vinous, lingering dry finish, good.

3.4
Travlr (26198) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Bottle. Gusher. Cloudy golden color, big fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of dusty and peppery wet blankets stored in attics. Taste is lightly bitter, fruity black pepper. Very Bretty but doesn’t quite come together.
