The tartness is the best part. Nice carbonation with the tropical tartness, earth esters, paired with some subtle hop notes. Seems to be more along the lines of a wild ale. It’s a little pricey, but worth a taste...it’s always good to have just the right amount of: don’t give a...

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 At the festival with Andrew and jay. Pours a lightly hazy golden body with light lacing. Aroma is super fresh Brett and fresh citra hops. Mouthfeel is medium to thin super sessionable with notes of citra, light funk, light pine and grass. Awesome pale.

Bottle, thanks adam! Pours cloudy light amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is very bretty, with some lemon and citrus fruitiness poking thru. Flavor is the same, brett, fruity, dry with light bitterness and a touch of tart. Medium body, oily mouth feel. Nice beer.

Wasn’t overly impressed by this beer, quite frankly. The hops had a really nice fruitiiness that started to show through, but the legs were cut out by the brett tartness. The brett was delicious!... but I wanted something more than "just brett".

375 ml bottle courtesy of adnielsen. Thanks, dude! pours a richer deep orange golden hue, firm haziness with a deep pretty glow, firm carbonation. A cakey offwhite head stays as a firm layer, laces ok and sticks around as a decent layer. Aromas offer some really nice life, pineapple and citrus, gentle lemon and grapefruit. Touches of fruit, bread, and firm florals, earthy dry hopping. Touches of oak are a bit woody, mellow vanillin. Fruity, a bit hoppy, dry and funky. Really nice complexity here. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a bit tart off the bat, firm pineapple. Some grapefruit, lemon, a bit of tart apple and pear. Firm brett, a touch prickly and bready. Some oak, with more dryness, funk as we round the corner into the middle. Dry, funky and dusty. The hop profile gets a bit more bitter as we round the corner, touches of oak, fruity tropical elements, pineapple, and grapefruit from the hops, bretty melange. A bit of spiciness, brett, and gentle sweetness. Finish is dry, but not overly so. Fairly complex experience, the brett offers some nice flavors, dust, and funk. The overall experience here is lovely, but I think some synergy from the high end complex hop choices certainly help, giving a good tropical nose with that firm brett presence and some really nice fruit elements in the middle. Tasty beer here.

(375ml bottle, #462) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a moderate white head. Aroma of lemon, pineapple, weed, pear, leather, spruce/pine, vanilla, and yogurt. Flavor of pineapple, lemon, pear, white grapes, brett, wood, and some grapefruit with a soft mouthfeel and a dry finish.

(375ml bottle #462 thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy rich yellow-org, soapy tan bubbles. Nose of pear, funky, sawdust, juicy citrus fruit, oak, brett, wet wood. Taste of brett, light tartness, citrus fruit like oranges, peach, wet wood, oak, lightly estery, apricot, pear, lots of fruit. Medium carbonation, soapy, woody. Nice finish.

brystmar (1314) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Whoa, big aroma! Full nose of pears and hops, barnyard yeast. Palate opens with funky grass, earthy-gueuze-esque yeast, faintly sour + hoppy finish. Lingering bitterness.

Lots of carb. Impeccable balance; well crafted. Tasty stuff.
