ctipping (2200) - 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 (1651) - 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 (18557) - 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 (15340) - 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 (25755) - 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.

3.8
jcr (2726) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy deep golden body with a hug, pillowy off-white head. Aroma of cobweb, horse blanket, toasted grain, herbs. Notes of band aid and pineapple. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A bit thin in the malt department, but it’s clean, crisp and fluffy in the finish. The brett is great. Horse blanket with tart cherry finish. Really enjoyable.

DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2017
330 cL cc bottle from Whole Foods. Thought this was an Allagash offering based upon the label coloration and design. Pours hazy straw with frothy, white head. Nose is yeasty funk, hopcitrus, white pepper. Complex flavor, hopcitrus, yeasty funk, white pepper. Delicious!

3.9
nearbeer (5558) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2017
375 ml bottled 2016/10/05. Foggy butterscotch colored body with a Belgian-style meringue on top. Nose is spicy/dusty yeast, white grapes, orange zest and a hint of resin. Tastes of dusty peach, orange flesh, honey, toast, wine, unsweetened bubblegum and some resinous hops. Hint of oak in the finish. Near-medium bodied and dry slanted with medium carbonation.
