Draft at Neons from backlog notes. Pours a hazy orange golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have doughy malt, yeast, lightly tart fruit, stone fruit, white grapes, grass, floral notes, decent. jsmerig (1667) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2017
Pours a clear orange yellow. Aroma is yeasty with note of banana and clove. Taste is sweet up front followed by a peppery hop bite in the finish.

Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave moderate lace. Aroma of strong funk notes and lots of light fruitiness. Taste follows, really nice and balanced with a nice funk and moderate acidity. A real treat to try this on tap! ClarkVV (6862) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2015

Very cool to unexpectedly see this on draught in Boston as I’d been wanting to try it forever.
Pale golden-blonde beer shows high clarity and plentiful carbonation creating a large white head that steadily fades to cover.
Pretty straightforward Belgian golden nose, actually, with the brett adding only a bit of light horseblanket character. Cracker and biscuit malt notes, with a light touch of cherry and apple esters. Grassiness on the end, with no alcohol or flaw.
At first sip, there’s a good amount of acidity creating a tartness that, taken with the high carbonation, creates a crisp, refreshing, almost berliner weisse-like feel/flavor to it. There’s a lot more varied fruitiness, though, with cherry skin, apples and lots of grainy character from the malts. The grainy character, along with the acidity and horsey notes all significantly over-dry the palate and there’s little/no sweetness/suppleness to be found from the malt.
As well, given that this was primary fermented with the brett, there’s very minimal brett character. Lemon, straw, grass and cracker linger and there’s a bit of sharpness from the alcohol, as well.
Have not been terribly impressed with 100% brett fermented beers and much prefer it to be added in secondary/at bottling.
Pours a slightly hazy, bright golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy, musty aroma with a strong farmhouse character and powerful brett/wild bug presence. Earthy with hints of grass, straw, barn and dry, funky yeast. Some pale malt underneath with ester-y light fruit notes.
On the fuller end of medium body with slightly creamy texture and soft carbonation. Dry, champagne-like effervescence with a musty farmhouse character and dry, funky brett. Really strong wild yeast character along with bready yeast and crisp, light fruit. Some biscuity pale malt and light fruit sweetness on the back end. Well balanced and refreshing with the dry, musty brett giving this beer an interesting twist. Not too exciting but flavorful and easy to drink.
