Bottle. Hazy gold with a big rocky white head. Aroma is citrus and earthy funk. Taste follows suit but the yeast has a very rubbery character. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. On the whole not bad but I think the Brett strain these guys use is not my cup of tea.

willisread (2800) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Bottle from Gambrinus. Pours a clear, light copper with a full 2 fingers of foam. Big aromas of horseblanket, green, wet hay and manure with a touch of overripe orange juice. Very crisp on the palate and dry with a wooded character. More musty cobwebs, orange and light melon. Dry, bretty finish that lingers.

ciocanelu (1588) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 27, 2016
Slightly hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma has lots of brett character with some musty cellar notes. Taste is slightly tart and very yeast forward. Musty, slightly bitter and earthy on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall its a nice brett ale, not too cloying, quite hoppy.

thornecb (5610) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Pours hazy gold into a snifter. Frothy white head with excellent retention recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Band aid and lemon aromas. Crisp with bandaid and aspirin front to back. Lots of Brett here.

AirForceHops (6430) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 29, 2016
375 ml bottle purchased at Redstone Liquors, Andover for $5.35. Snifter shows a turbid bright golden color with large lasting foamy head. Aroma has bold citrus, herbs, and substantial oak influence.

The flavor profile is deep. The brettanomyces is found throughout the sip with a mild citrus hint in the middle. Rotten tropical fruit notes. The finish has a lasting oak character. The body is medium with a earthy funky yeast. The beer is tart but not sour at all. The texture is bone dry and gives me cottonmouth. The hops and freshness make this very palateable for me. Nice brew!

neongolden (1286) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2016
(375ml bottle from Mikkeller Webshop) Pours a rather hazy dark gold with a huge pile of dense white foam that lingers well and leaves loads of lace. Aroma is tart, fruity and funky with citrus, pale stone fruit and under-ripe mango, straw, heavy barnyard, bready yeast. Flavour is slightly tart and bitter with low pale malt sweetness. White grape, citrus peels, honeydew melon, grass, Brett, light earthy funk, metallic tang in the finish. Medium bodied, smooth, moderate carbonation. Another nice Brett IPA from Crooked Stave, funkier than I recall the single hop versions being but not as distinctive a hop profile either.

Pours hazy pale straw color with white head. Aromas of brett, dough, and light citrus. Big brett flavor with some doughy yeast, lemon, and pine. Light to medium body with lively carbonation.

Bottle @ Mikkeller web. Pours cloudy Deep golden with a white head. Aroma of manure, cat piss, ripe fruits, heavy barn. Taste is tropical juice, light barn, fruity and pretty straight forward, light sulphur. Light bitter with maby a tad too much manure.

M4grem (32) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Smooth IPA with a slight twang. Just enough of that Brett comes thru to really give some good flavor. Well balanced proportions. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
