Bottle courtesy of Walt at BCTC. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Candy and shower gel on the nose. Sweet and fruity. Bright and lively, malt toast and not nearly as much acid as I was expecting from the nose. Soft musk, some light styrofoam notes. Musk, wheat, and yeast on the finish.

drowland (8880) - Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2012
First to rate! 2/23/12. On tap at Flix for RBWG 2012! Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head that fades to a film and laces a bit. Funky, fruity aroma that definitely shows persimmon and a bit of caramelly chocolate. Slightly fruity, sweet persimmon flavor with persistent chocolate and a nice funkiness and lingering dryness. Not too shabby!

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a nice glowing amber orange hue, gentle haziness, frothy whitish head stays as a mellow filmy layer, decent lacing and stick around. Aromas are a bit tart, spicy with gentle citrus, persimmon, sweeter fruit and a bit of funk, tartness. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a bit tart with persimmon, carmelized malts, a touch of fruity sweetness, faint brown sugar, some bread, spiciness. Mellow tartness, gentle yeastiness as we turn the corner. Backend a bit more dry and bitter, touch yeasty, funky. Some tartness, a bit of earthy bitterness and warmth. Almost a cinnamon jab at times back here. Solid.

thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2012
(Draught) cloudy amber with wispy white bubbles. Nose is funky, brett, berry. Taste of light brett, berry, sweet, easy drinking and well carbonated. A refreshing beer!

3.8
Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2012
On tap during the 2012 RateBeer Winter Gathering. The beer pours a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of brett character, with a lot of leathery funk present. I also get some toffee notes as well as quite a bit of orange citrus in the aroma. The flavor shares a lot with the aroma. I get the same leather and funk notes, with a lot of juicy, slightly tart lemons, also coming through. There is also a nice toffee quality in the flavor. The beer is very easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7
erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2014
Lemony, citric hops yet with a good Brett funk. Belgian base yeast I thought at first, bit quite clearly fermented. Nice classic basic bitterness gives a modern appeal. (On tap at Flix Brewhouse)
