Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, - JAN 29, 2013
Clearish pale golden pour covered by a healthy white foam. Despite all its components, hops remain the dominant feature, throwing fragrant citrus and earth laden aromas at the nose. In mouth, it feels a bit loose, kinda oily and very dry, combining with the hops to the point of astringency, with a powdery, mineral tang... altogether, frankly a bit rough when the bitterness is anything but subtle. At the same time, it’s thin. One of those rare beers in which I feel a little more body and sugars would be welcome, making the edges smoother. Here, the dryness frmo the brett is noticeable, but the flavours, I would not have guess any wild yeast in there if I’d not read it previously. As for the wheat, in this thinness and hop slaughter, it is quickly forgotten. Perhaps if I’d gotten to try it when it was really fresh, I’d have been satisfied with a focus on awesome fresh hops, but alas, a beer brewed in Belgium by Danes and exporter all over the US starts with a few strikes when trying to attempt just what seems reasonable.

Bottle from A.J.'s Beer Warehouse. Really impressive hay flavors with some grass and floral notes.

Can poured into a snifter showing lightly filtered dark yellow with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows moderately intense notes of dry pine needles and lighter notes of cannabis. The palate is medium bodied and well carbonated. Strong forward notes of brett funk and light Belgian yeast with a moderately sharp intense pine resinous bitterness on the finish that stretches to the finish. Brett on the attack rather than pine seems a bit unharmonious and strange.

skrip (228) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2017
4/13/13 On tap at Parker’s Pie Co. poured into a pint glass. A~ light slightly hazy orange, with a nice head and crazy lacing. Also constant bubble motion. S~ crazy citrus! A peppery saison sensation followed by more and more lemon/grapefruit citrus. T~ overpowering citrus hops up front, followed by pepper, and a nice finish of some wheat characteristics. M~ very nicely carbonated, dry, yet still smooth. O~ how is this rated so low!? Maybe it’s better on draft, but this is seriously an incredible brew. If you have a chance to try it, do it without hesitation! Glad I also bought a bottle at HF.

Kran w Craftownia. Jakoś sobie wkręciłem, że czuję beczkę. Taka drewniana gładkość.Kwaśność na średnim poziomie. Bretów spodziewałem się więcej, a tu masz, kultura. Chmiel wyczuwalny również delikatnie. Wszystko jest tu gładkie, w zasadzie. Bardzo fajne, złożone i zarazem lekkie piwo.

Smaken är främst grapebesk, men persikoskal och passionsfrukt finns där också. Ganska oljig, bra bett i brskan men något ihumleprofilen känns mer jämntjockt än karaktärsfullt.

Wheat based IPA and it was brilliant. I loved the full taste, it’s great texture.

CObiased (526) - 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

tapefuzz (760) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2017
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 isn’t anywhere near as strong as it could’ve been outside of the aroma - which is the beer’s biggest strength.
