drewbeerme (3921) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottles 344 vs 462, 344 - pours hazed gold with white head. Aroma strawberries, melon, big Brett, vanilla Flavors are piney, grassy, melons, pinneapple, horsey Brett finish. 462 - pours same, aroma has more of a piney, citrus, leathery thing that works better with the oak and Brett. Flavors leathery, citrus, floral, dry pinneapple Brett thing, vanilla oak. Good balance here, dry but there’s still some sugar left, delicate for sure. Both great Brett pales but 462 works so much more with the Brett and oak profile.

Batch 344. Pours flat, hazy yellow. Nose is tropical with pineapple and mango. Hard to explain the flavor, typical pale flavor with a funky tropical twist. Fantastic!

podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2013
375ml bottle at ABV. Pours cloudy apricot orange with a huge head. Aroma is more hop forward than brett with notes of citrus and other fruits. Taste is citrus, brett and lots of oak and wood. This was pretty interesting as it was a balance of hoppiness and tartness. Nice.

Pour on tap at the brewery, the 344 hop variety, aka watermelon hops. Hazy orange yellow pour with nice fluffy white head, aroma definitely brings melon, watermelon mainly with some cantaloupe, nice grapefruit, peach, pear, slight orange peel, hints of oak, brett funk, some slight sweet biscuit. Taste is a mix of white fruits, some nice peach, pear, going right into melon, orange, grapefruit, slight grass into oak, vanilla, slight biscuit, slight brett notes, finishing bitter, fairly dry. Very well done.

Poured from a bottle a hazy orange with a bubbly, clean white head. Smells of citrus, pine, oak, bread, and bretty funk. There is also a touch of a something tart in the nose. Taste is a bitter front with with a mildy sweet and sour citrus finish. Really an interesting take on the hoppy tart combination.

Bottle sampled in Exira, IA. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a hazy golden orange color with white head. Nice barnyard, hoppy, citrus flavors. Awesome.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 Tap at Colorado +. Cloudy yellow. Tropical fruit hop nose and lemon citrus. Wheat, straw, and light malt, tropical fruit, bit of Brett, and a lot of tart lemon. Good, this needs some time. Don’t like it as much yet as the WWBGreen I had with about a year of bottle age. Brett should develop more. >>>Galaxy. Batch 3. Bottle. Dustier nose with some lime, lime leaf. Less lemon citrus than I noted above. Again, feel it will improve with age.

375ml bottle, courtesy of Aaron. Thanks! Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, yeast, Brett. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sour, funky, yeast, Brett, some pine and citrus hops, grapefruit, with a light bitter and sour finish. Interesting. Just a little too Brett forward for me.

WOWZERZ. Thanks Chad. Smells fantastic like grapefruits on a beach. Pours nice and hazy (yeast didn’t settle after being transported). Taste is sweet, tart and champagne like. The dry hopping opens things up a lot and makes me think I’m drinking a soured pale ale.

BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle marked 344 on the back thanks to a trade with Ratman. Pours with a hazy golden-straw yellow hue with a medium-large sized white head that lasts and leaves great lace. Aromas are of floral, resiny and tropical fruit hop character, lots of citrus, medium bready, malt, and an earthy, funky, goaty brett character. Lots of horseblanket. Aromas remind me a bit of Prairie Ale’s ’Merica. Flavors are tart with big floral, citrus and tropical fruit notes. Bready, estery, passion fruit and citrus. Medium resin and grassy dry hop character. Fruity brett with mild phenolics. Grainy. Papaya. Strong carbonation, medium to low body, dry. Feels more warming than 6.7%.
