Hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Maybe a little residual lace. Aroma is citric hops, brett and some mild funky. Nice and tart. Underlining notes of hops and funk Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2011
On tap at the Jackie O’s One Funky Afternoon event. Served in a tulip.
Pours cloudy yellow with a 1.5-finger white head with good retention. The nose brings forward some mellow floral and slightly-citric hops. Plenty of funk in the background along with a bit of hay. The flavor brings moderate hoppiness along with a background funk that is quite pleasing. Mild hay and grain as well. Light body with a really dry, funky finish. Light bitterness in the finish as well. Quite drinkable and nicely done.
Serving type: on-tap

Sample at One Funky Afternoon at Jackie O’s on 04/02/2011: Pours a cloudy yellow-orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Funky brett aroma with some fruity hop notes. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops flavor balanced against funky brett and fruit. The finish is resiny hops and tart fruit. Interesting take on the original overall. JaBier (7871) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2011
Sampled during One Funky Afternoon on 4/2/11. Hazy amber pour with a thin white head. Nose is funky brett and grassy hop. Super grassy bitter hop flavor with some funk on the back end. Quite a shock to the palate after all the sours, but a nice change of pace. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2011
This poured a dark yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots and ltos of brett as well as fresh citrus hops. Flavor was a very interesting blend of bitterness between the sour funk and the hops. Seemed like it was aged just enough to get sour but still has a good amount of fresh hop taste. Very Unique.

On tap into a sampler glass. Appearance is a copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy and slightly bretty, interesting combination I think. Taste is much like the aroma, but the brett and hops taste like they are canceling each other out. Both are dominant flavors, and both want the spotlight, but they just make one another less noticeable. I don’t know that a sour pale ale is really my cup of tea, but I love that somebody is trying to make them.
