Pouring at the 2016 Micro Brew Invitational in Boston. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Big brett and tropical fruit. Medium bodied, tangy, tropical fruit, hints of acidity. Tart with yeast, slow hops, musk, slow sweetness into the finish.

Growlette purchase from the brewery. This was reviewed as an American Wild Ale. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head. Dissipates within less than thirty seconds and leaves a light stringy lacing. The smell starts off with a sharp tangy to slightly sour lemon and orange rind. Light citrus pulp enters in nicely and adds a decent level of sour. The Brett is there and fairly tame. The taste was sweet to bitter to tangy/sour. A slightly tangy orange juice aftertaste leads to a quick wet citrus finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sipping quality about it. Carbonation seemed good for an American Wild Ale and hits my tongue sour to semi-tangy. Overall, though the Brett is tame, I think I liked it more for me. Might have again.

Draught at Lord Hobo, 5/27/15
Huge white head is very well-retained, topping a very hazy tangerine-colored beer.
As with most brett pale ales, it smells absolutely lovely when cold; lime, band-aid, lilac...really nice and quite aromatic even when cold off the tap. With warming, a bit of doughiness emerges, as well as biscuity malts, pineapple and light lychee sweetness. Quite dry, overall, with floral and lightly citric hops but very low on acidity/resin, thankfully. No alcohol in the nose either.
Limes, oranges and sweet white bread dough in the flavor are whisked about the palate by a brisk carbonation. The finish is dry, biscuity and filled with moderate fruitiness from both hop and brett. A bit chewy on account of all the sediment in suspension and as with nearly all brett pale ales, the doughiness mounts with warming. Not sure what this is a biproduct of (is it just the lack of yeast floccing?). I don’t know, but it always dampens an otherwise very crisp and enjoyable pale ale. Light pine and more bitterness emerge with warming, as well.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015 Tap at lord hobo. Tastes like a mimosa fps. Soft clementines. Light fluffy spritzy champagne essence for some reason. Weird beer that is @ Drinkable.

Two separate draft samples. The fresher the better on this one. Frist sampled from a growler 29 June 2014. The dry hopping of the beer gives a really great fruit aroma with light yeasty character. The flavor was very much how it smelled, tropical fruits, and light chewy yeast body. Subtle tartness without any funk. The flavor of the hops is amplified by the yeast giving mostly pleasant fruit flavors.

I sampled again at the Reservoir, Waterbury on 11 Nov, 2014. Let just say the flavor downgrades rather quickly as it ages. A huge amount of band aides upfront with some subtle sourness in the finish. Didn’t like it at all in November but that is my palate. The rating of this brew is based on the fresh Growler I sampled in June 2014.

On tap at Prohibition P. Bleach in first sample, changed the cup and still got some bleach back there off-taste of the beer my friend.Nice lasting head in second half pint.

PhillyCraft (8306) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2014
On tap at the pig, pours hazy and slightly murky bright golden with medium tiny bubbled white head. Aroma and flavor has this cherry almond thing going on which is awesome but not what i expected from a Brett pale. Other notes of yeast, and light hops but mostly some awesome dark cherry and wood tones. Medium bodied, and very refreshing.
