12oz bottle from Bottle Rack. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is light caramel, some funk, definite brett, and some citrusy hops trying to come through. Flavor is similar with barnyardy brett, some caramel, and some citrusy hops. Finish is dry with some lingering brett in the finish. Light to medium in body, and it drinks like a 3-4% beer.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a miniature snifter. Appearance is a light, hazy copper with a thick white head of foam with great retention. Aroma is in your face with hop bitterness with notes from grapefruit to herbal pine and into an estery sweetness. Taste is bitter initially, but as you progress to the swallow, the esters kick in and provide for a semi bitter finish. GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle from Canal’s in Lawrenceville. NJ. Initially pours clear sunflower/amber but as the delicate white head builds, a mild haze appears at the center. Bright citrus aroma with telltale brett funkiness. Extremely crisp floral flavor an earthy note at center stage throughout. Mildly sour but pleasantly so. Light, prickly, satisfying texture and an incredibly dry finish. Just a great brew. Foxbush (2028) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2012
12 oz bottle This was tasted at Mekong in Richmond. This restaurant has a wide selection of beers and ales. They focus more on Belgian ales than on pale ales. This was not a good experience. The ale poured with a huge white frothy head that overflowed the glass. The hazy golden color was inviting. There was some citrus bitterness with a lively carbonation. There an astringent taste throughout and in the finish that was undrinkable. wchesser (2074) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2012
Yum....new favorite summer beer? Lots of carbonation on a big fading head with some lacing. Nose is mostly IPA florals and citrus with a bit of funk. Brett shows through more in taste, but everything is really well balanced out and the brett adds a great extra dimension to this.

Thanks to Craig. Very perfumy, spicy, and floral. This is a tasty beer. Solid hop notes throughout this beer. An easy drinking spicy IPA. douglas88 (9180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2012
12 ounce bottle thanks to craig. Pours a clear copper color with a large beige head. A sweet fruity nose. A light sweet fruity hop, some yeast, dry, sweet malts. Good. ttutony (920) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2012
Golden color with a white head. Funky spicy yeast aroma. Essentially more of the same on the palate. I like the beer but I don’t get a huge hop presence. JK (6158) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2012
Gold color. Belgian yeast that reminds me of Orval. Mild hops and light spice, with some brett. A good beer. Boutip (6374) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of funky barnyard notes with dry hoppy notes with light floral undertones. Taste is a wonderful mix between some Brett notes with its characteristics barnyard notes which are well integrated with the dry hoppy notes with a solid malt backbone that is not overly sweet. Body is quite full with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Great balance between the different aspects of this beer while retaining some very good drinkability.
