b3shine (9259) - Indiana, USA - JUN 15, 2016
375 ml bottle to snifter (thanks arminjewell). Looks good; a transparent golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart, lemony, funky, and oaky. Tastes like it smells with a slightly acidic medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Good beer.

Dfonorow (2318) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2016
On tap @ Haymarket - Chicago. Pour is hazy golden with a minimal white head. Flavor and aroma of sour white grapes, white bread, and grassy hops.

Oakes (19409) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
Quite hazy, dull tan, no head. Has a bretty, barrelly aroma, with the light brett fruitiness, and an accent of yeasty mustiness. Tart up front, with again such must, lots of brett. Ok, good sweetness but the overall flavour development is somewhat lacking. So good beer but missing something to differentiate it.

TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle - 375mL corked and caged courtesy of my friend Noel. Hazy gold with a short white head. Aroma is sour fruit, yogurt, oak and funky yeast. Taste is yogurt, sour fruit, peaches, apricot, oak, funky yeast and horse blanket. Body is medium with a moderate prickly carbonation. Ends with more funky yeast, sour fruit, yogurt, oak and horse blanket. Yummy!

corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours a hazy dark golden yellow color with ripe banana/straw colored edges and a two finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Decent retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with a nice balance of barnyard funk, musty bugs, sourdough bread, toasted oak and light fruit esters. Wild yeast dominates the nose with prominent barnyard funk. Subtle cheesiness, peppery spice, vanilla bean charred oak, hay and light fruit. Hints of apple and strawberry and cream but the lactic character gets stronger as it warms. Fuller end of medium body with crisp acidity but not overwhelmingly sour. Decent amount of citric acid along with musty brett effervescence and lactic funk. Nice balance of acid and funk without overpowering the earthy farmhouse yeast and light fruit esters. Slight creamy texture with wild yeast, lemon spritz, hay and zesty citrus peel. Fruit isn’t as strong as in the nose but this beer remains tart, refreshing and very easy to drink. Not quite as complex as the aroma suggests but still pretty interesting .

kappldav123 (6153) - GERMANY - NOV 17, 2015
Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass golden, nice head. Sourish-moldy aroma. Starts mild, sourish, fruity like lemon, not too intense. Finish mild, less sourish, malty-grasy notes. Not bad.

Borup (15942) - Albertslund, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
From tap at CBC 2015. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Aroma and flavour of malt, hops, fruit, brett, spice and yeast.

3.3
_angst_ (5009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
Draught @ CBC 2015. Pours tiny hazy pale golden with a frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity estery and tiny spicy phenolic with crackers, pears, white grapes, hay, dry soil, white pepper corns, dry wood and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, fruity and tiny spicy. Mouthfeel is sparkling, round, tiny tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet and tiny sour with crackers, pears, white grapes, hay, dry soil, minerals and lemon zest. Bit too sweet and grape soda-like. Can’t say I detect much brett. Too young perhaps considering the sweetness...
