UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Tasted at a tasting in mid-2012 from a capped 750mL bottle. Pours cloudy bright orange with a massive white head that slowly recedes to thick, messy lace. The nose is super funky and earthy with some resin hops, citrus peel, and a lightly creamy aroma. The flavor is the same, super funky brett, and plenty of earthiness with the nicely bitter resin hops and citrus peel. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long super funky and lightly bitter finish.
Tasted again at RBWG Asheville 2014 with similar results. The flavor was much funkier with the nose a bit more subdued, but it was still an excellent beer.
750ml bottle thanks to Dave. Pours out a hazy copper amber color topped with a fluffy head. Nose is brett funk barrel oak notes some light floral hops and a little spice. Taste is more of the funky brett notes spice citrus hops and the barrel presents. djd07 (14469) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2016

Bottle thanks to Niels ! Pours a medium golden color with a touch of haze and two plus fingers of white fizzy foam. Lots of hops and funk left in this one. Juniper, mint, spruce, pine, pineapple and horsehair take this one by the reigns and carry it away into the tart funky barnyard filled with dank hop presence. Lots of funky bitterness lingers.

Bottle shared at Peg’s. Pale yellow pour with a white head. Floral aromas. Mildly sour with muted citrus, lemongrass, and brett notes. Very good mouthfeel. Good body. A bit hard to describe, but tasty nevertheless... phaleslu (10239) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2014
750 ml bottle shared by NielsenRatings - thanks, A-A-Ron! Pours a hazy, pale straw with a huge white head. Plenty of funk and florals in this, with straw, crackers, herbs, lemon, and some tropical fruits. Light-bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a tart, funky, bitter, sharp mouthfeel. Very good, but not one of my favorites from the series. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2014
