notalush (5930) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2017
750ml - hazy gold with lively carbonation kicked up a respectable head - aroma of stone fruits, light horseblanket funk, white wine/grapes, light pepper - light and creamy on the palate - mildly sweet, with a touch of tartness, some peppery phenols, and a warming finish - the fruit is understated and delicious - light funk, white wine, leading mild spiciness on the finish - lovely malt texture and wonderfully subtle complexity - this is a lovely beer.

DiarmaidBHK (5948) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Sampler at beer meets wood. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Nice fruit notes on the nose and tongue paired with some subtle wood notes. Finished clean.

jcr (2779) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 12, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy golden body with a frothy, off-white head. Aroma of barnyard, peach, toasted grain, mold, pear. Hint of dusty grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Fruit is the main player, but the supporting brett cast elevates the beer. It’s fairly muted which is just right for this beer. Peach with a hint of horse blanket. Dry finish. Really nice.

willisread (3695) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle from CYO. Pours a clearish gold with a big soapy head of foam that lingers. Bretty nose with earthy, musty notes and some plum as it warms. Good carbonation throughout and a creamy, pulpy mouthfeel. The fruit is definitely muted, but works well with the brett. It is elegant and soft-spoken. Peach, plum and stone fruit all come out on the palate, with sticks and twigs. Light, bitter yeasty notes with fruit skins on the finish. Well done.

3.3
JStax (7225) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 2, 2017
750 ml bottle. Cork shot off like a rocket. The beer is a hazy gold with a big white head of foam. Aroma is fruity, earthy, sweet, herbal. Sweet taste, almost like a fruity cream. Medium body and high carbonation.

ajnepple (7183) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2017
750 ml bottle shared, purchased at Plaza Liquor in KC. Orange and slight hazy appearance with an off-white head. Aroma of stone fruits, mild barnyard funk, light oak, light grains and light zest. Similar flavor, mildly sweet and mildly bitter with some light acidity. Medium body with ample carbonation and a refreshing finish. Nice.

4.1
Cybercat (6212) - Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Pours barely translucent banana with a thick and fairly persistent porcelain head. Aroma presents tart apple, fresh malt, fresh hops and yeasty tones plus a snip of butterscotch. Flavor features all of the above, though not as strong, and the butterscotch goes AWOL. Mouthfeel offers good body and fizz. Fall for this.

3.4
oobawa (1795) - Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2017
Big brett-n-overripe-fruit nose, full of tart peach and fermenting plum and funk. Looks are good, hazy pale yellow with the slightest of a pinkish tint, topped by a persistent white head. Taste starts tart, peach and brett and a slight juicy sweetness, then grows mildly dry and oak-laced, a minor red wine heaviness deepening the middle. Gains an unexpected minerality on the back end, tiny hints of plum and peach getting overshadowed by oak and a medicinal bitterness. Finishes with a dry, yeasty fade, teensiest bit o’ funk underneath. Sparkly texture feels about right, but overall not as deep or fruit-forward as you want in a beer named "King of Falling Fruit".

3.7
bytemesis (9326) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 16, 2017
Bottle. Pours hazy plum, medium white head, good lacing. Aroma is field grass, Saison yeast, Brett, oak, stonefruit. Flavor is very light tart, light bitter, medium funk. Fruit present but very restrained. Light body, soft carbonation.
