CObiased (449) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2017
11.2oz bottle - it pours a mostly clear light golden yellow with a thick soapy snow white head. A unique aroma with medicinal funk, lemon, herbal grassiness and a hint of bitter floral. The flavors are well balanced between the funky brett characteristics and hoppy citrus notes. Different...well made

500mL can. Pours a lightly hazy, deep yellow with a medium, lasting, foamy white head. Aroma is very Brett-y; yeast funk, earth, hay, wheat, and a little lemon. Taste is light funk, grapefruit, wheat, some caramel, a little barnyard, and a touch of lemon. Bitter and earthy Brett yeast finish. Fairly dry. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffy mouthfeel - not deep enough to be creamy, not clean enough to be crisp. The overall Brett presence isnt anywhere near as strong as it couldve been outside of the aroma - which is the beers biggest strength.

Aroma is citrus/fruit, Brett funk and a hint of sugar. The flavor is grapefruit, wheat, citrus, mild Brett funk and a slightly spicy/tropical fruit zest finish.

Turtles (2402) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 14, 2017
330ml bottle @ Printz. Hazy golden with a small white head, some lacing. Mild funky aroma, grass, hay, citrus and urinal cake. Smooth and light, medium carbonated. Citrus and Brett taste, not too wild and crazy. Finishing with floral bitterness.

Stoned99 (1454) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2016
500ml can. Thanks Guillaume for buying. Aroma: big nose of wheat, lemon, fresh hay, light spices. App: cloudy pale, medium white head with good retention and big lacing covering all my glass. Taste and palate: medium body, fluffy, harsh bitter finish. Overall: I bought this thinking it would be like any of HF ipa but its not. Far from it. Honestly there is nothing in this beer that reminds me of HF, doesnt have its yeast or water aroma signature. Bitterness is also too present for my tastes. Good but far from any HF hoppy beers.

To piwo zostało tylko muśnięte brettami. Aromat jest jednak bardzo przyjemny, dominują tu słodkie owoce, wyraźnie pojawiają się winogrona. W smaku bardzo lekkie jak na ten styl przystało.

BlazerT (936) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle. Teku. Orange/yellow, medium hazy with medium, semi-thick, white head. Good lacing and head retention. Taste is citrus, lemon-like, nicely brett, which is pretty well balanced with hoppy character - mainly tropical fruits (mango and melon) and some resinous/piney character. Taste is medium bitter, semi-dry, intensifies in the end. Medium body, creamy texture, average to lively carbonation, finish is semi-dry, bitter with nice funky notes. In general there nice combination IPA with brett character. Nowadays its quite common, but first time when beer was released it was something new. Good one.

shrubber85 (11088) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Draft. Fresh hay/grass, lemon/orange, and wheat malt aroma. Pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet floral/perfume, citrus, wheat malt, and moderately bitter astringent hay flavor. Good body.

Beerclubsa (147) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 11, 2016
330ml bottle from International Beer Store, Perth. Pours a hazy orange-yellow with a white head that is tightly packed and retains well. Aromas of tropical fruit and some barnyard and hay. Palate has a medium high carbonation and medium-light body. Flavours of tropical fruit, wheat malt character and a medium bitterness, with the Brett character coming through as it warmed. Not bad, but not as complex as I was hoping. Best drunk a bit warmer.
