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.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is slightly sour with hay, citrus hops, and lemon. Slightly sour flavor with lemon and candied sugar. Slight citrus hop on the finish.

JoeMcPhee (9586) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2017
Pale golden pour with a huge white head. The nose is tart and funky. Lots of bright aromatic. Some soft zestiness and a leathery/earthiness. The flavour has an incredible complex acidity. A soft lactic quality that sets off the earthy brett flavour. Intensely flavourful. There’s a subtle sort of funky/goaty flavour butnits balanced by bright fruit, peach and pineapple. Flinty and dry. Solid.

Vignale (4054) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2017
Flaska från Beergium. Crooked Stave-provning med Lilja och Samuel214. Brandgul, grumlig med högt vitt skum. Massor av apelsin, aromnatisk kåda, citruszest och rengöringsmedel i aromen. En del kola, knäck och nästan lite rostade toner och mycket kryddigt trä. Ganska slät kropp med mycket trä- och fatkaraktär - dock utan att det blir särskilt strävt. Även mycket apelsinzest. Inte vad jag tänker som en typisk brett pale ale, men riktigt bra! Gott!

@ Crooked Stave Tasting hosted by Kraddel 19/11/2017
Aroma is rubber, brett and a tad chlorine. Bummer. Taste is brett, sourish, citric and a tad mango. Less rubber in taste. Is this a bottle with an off flavor? Palate is smooth.

Hey, ABInBev, keep those checks coming in and I will keep reviewing craft brews on your favorite site here. Let's get something straight here, I love beer, from lagers to IPA's, porters and stouts, strong ales, Trappistes and so on. I do not like fruits and vegetables in beer, nor do I care for salad dressing brews (sours). So on to the brew at hand, labeled as an India Pale Ale... with Brett. Could it be that I also do not care for mish-mash brews? Quite possible. As has been noted, this one pours with an enormous head and needs time to enjoy... or not. On tasting, I immediately went to the bottle to find a date and determine if I had a bad bottle. No date evident, but I guess that this is actually what it is. Pretty floral both in aroma and flavor, somewhat spicy, thin, bland, very un-beer like, unsatisfying. Tastes like something made from dandelions. A singularly bad idea. Somewhat similar brews, from Unibroue for example, are worlds better than this.
