Pours reddish copper with a sandy lacey head. The aroma brings tart Brett and some sweet malts, what a surprisingly pleasant combo. Flavor brings wild yeast for sure, surprisingly bigger than the resiny maltness. But both aspects are so huge making it a big beer overall, and not in a boozy way by any means.

Poured into a tulip, cloudy orange amber pour.
Didn’t smell too strong, actually smells like an IPA, with some appealing sourness.
Tastes sweet up front followed with hoppy goodness and some sour at the back.
It’s a barleywine that I would session drink before I realize I’m too drunk. Good or bad thing? Not sure. Overall great beer.

2012-12-17. Hazy dark orange amber body, small beige head. 3+ Really interesting aroma, funky fruity character, very light musty barnyard, malt core. 7++ Flavour has a malty core, funky overtones, fairly bitter which grows as it warms. 7++ Average plus body, decent carbonation. 3+ Pretty good stuff, I can’t decide if I truly love it but it is super interesting and grows on me a LOT by the end of the glass.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2012 Brett is a very good buddy here. He rocks that barley like Zeppelin rocks the numerous things they rock. Brett flows through the malt like it owns the shit, but on the level that it controls the shit. A wonder of infusion. Like disco meeting house. Rap meeting jazz. A witch’s brew of goodness. bytemesis (9214) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Tap. Pours deep clear reddish amber with a medium tan head that dissipates with great creamy lacing. Aroma is Brett, white wine, apricot, caramel. Flavor is about the same, light sweet, biting light zesty bitterness, bit of funk. Medium body, but creamy. Strong warming finish blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle [32oz] shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours a hazy orange-copper with an average size frothy white head. Nice, interesting aroma of fruit and brett along with light spices and herbs. Flavour is also fruity and bretty and adds a good amount of malt and a big bitter finish. Some alcohol present but not too much. Medium bodied. Really good stuff. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Half-growler fill from the brewery during the week. Pours a hazy but somewhat-transparent deep brown color with minimal head. Smells like a tame sour; my girlfriend thought it smelled like flowers, for some reason. Has a good sweetness without being overly so. The brett helps balance out what could be an overpowering sweetness (I’m not a huge fan of barleywines b/c of the sweetness). Not their best offering, but good for sure. j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Growler courtesy of blipp (I think) during Zwanze Day 2012 at Spuyten. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Sweet with a light amount of funk and a lot of caramel on the nose. Baking bread, esters and brett. Malty biscuits, a bit more brett and toast. Chewy, and the brett is quite interesting, touches of wood into the finish. Zesty, super weird, very cool.
