Appearance: Pours a hazed, deep amber-gold body with a craggy, rocky, white head that peters out fairly quickly but never quite vanishes.
Smell: Varied, mingled, sweaty notes of tart pears, Italian bread crumbs, finely-ground spices, oily citrus fruits, lavender, pickled ginger slices, and mildly funky Brett.
Taste: Golden barley, gently toasty with sweetish hints of well-spiced sugar-spice cookies. The sweetness dries out almost instantaneously. Embellishes of Chiclets and Sweet-Tarts midway into the flavor. Citric oils with some phenolic Brett character coming through, but it’s never overtly wild. Peppery spice and some fleeting wild yeastiness on the sparkling finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Highly carbonated with a downright crackling mouthfeel.
Overall: I would say this could greatly benefit from some time away to let that lovely wild character develop. Brux, you are in TIME OUT.
(750ml bottle) Pours a hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of brett, straw, pear skins, mustiness, husks, and corn. Flavor of herbs, grass, nuts, brett, pear, and grass with a dry finish. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2012 Bottle at dans, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks Man! Poured golden orange in appearance with a small off-white head. Fruity, citrusy, tangy, funk, light brett, light alcohol, a touch of pepper, some grapefruit, and phenols in the aroma. Really interesting aroma. Taste is white pepper, sweet fruits, tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, light brett, and vanilla with a lightly tart finish. Medium mouthfeel with huge carbonation. Really smooth and well-balanced beer, easy to take down. Not quite what I expected, but nice, nonetheless. dlinn (144) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Tastes wild, as the name of the beer hints... Wish it were a bit more sour. Not bad. cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a cloudy orange appearance with a small white head. Bretty, pineapple, orange citrusy, fairly tart, vanilla, tangy aroma. Tangy, slightly vinous, orange, slightly tropical fruity, blood orange, tart flavor. Interesting but not nearly as good as some of Russian River’s offerings.

Pours a clear yet extremely carbonated golden with a bubbly white head. Tart aroma of apple, pear, banana, and some bread. The initial taste is sour and tart, so much so that it hides other flavors. After this settles, the fruity impressions, mostly apple and pear become apparent. The taste ends with potent sour finish that is long lasting. The sourness masks a great deal of the taste, which shouldn’t be a problem if you like sour. Calling this one dry would be an understatement. Bitter at the end as well. Carbonation is very fizzy and bubbly. Alcohol content is masked very well. If you like this style, you should enjoy this. However, I can’t label this among my favorites of these.

Bottle. Dark gold pour white head. Pretty hoppy aroma, light brett but rather discreet, slightly metallic. Taste is bitter, lots of hops no real acidity surprising. Palate is well carbed, kind of dry. Not bad but not as good as I expected. ffaoe (912) - Moorestown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2012

750mL thanks to Matt at Campdown Brewdown. Pours a clear orange with weak head formation. Nose is at first is volatile phenols and plastic moving to spicy Brett, small Orval character with ginger and minerals. Taste is minerally, sweeter, small diacetyl. Still young, little to no funk. Not very aerated in the palate. Still needs a diacetyl rest to let the Brett clean up.
