330ml brown bottle. Gold colour with a small and creamy white cap. Nose is tropical, sour, guava and passionfruit. Taste - tropical, tart, passion fruit, juicy, light Brett. The Brett hangs around in the aftertaste. A nice wild IPA. Cheers to Mastodon and MIkkeller. Nuffield (4187) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Hazy and attractice. Aroma of orange and general citrus, with a more pronounced earthy, grassy quality in the flavor. Obvious sour notes, Brett. Fine if not mind blowing. On tap at San Francisco Mikkeller. jgb9348 (6388) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2017
Slightly hazy copper and bronze coloured body with a dense, three centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of soured and funky yeasts with a bit of wheat, some grass and a smooth, but very low alpha acid hop bitterness noticeable. Light to Medium-bodied; Very dry funky yeast notes show through everything with a very pale and funky malt flavour right behind that with some mellow hop bitterness around, a little bit of sugars and the passionfruit sour and fruitiness that should be showing through, only showing a small amount at the end. Aftertaste shows some more dry and grassy flavours with some brett noticeable, but more of the sour notes should be attributed to the passionfruit and tart fruits than anything else. Overall, an interesting beer that shows way more of a 'wild ale' than either an IPA or a Fruit Beer. Nice to sample, however at the price I paid for this, I would have rather sampled two or three different American beers (whatever style they happened to be) over this. Definitely not worth going out trying to find, unless you have an obsession with the band...but if you want any of these styles of beer and want them to be great, avoid this beer...I'm not quite sure how the ratings made it up so high for this one, but I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the label, sadly. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 10-June-2017 for US$6,50 sampled at home in Washington after just running a half-marathon on 17-September-2017.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Langnes. Drukket på Bergstua 15 Sep 17. Gyldengulbrun. Litt uklar. Lavt tett skum. Spotlacing. Aroma av syrlig frukt. Smaken plommer. Grei men uvariert. MonsterMagnet (1519) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2017
Bottle, 3 months past bb date. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Light bretty funk and prominent passion fruit make this beer, followed by lemon, orange zest and rhubarb. Nice 'friendly' tartness, low bitterness, a really nice farmhouse style beer. Not sure how it was fresh, but it sure is a great beer now.

Light funk aroma, the passion fruit flavour comes through strongly, with a lightly tart finish luksow (73) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 28, 2017
Interesting aroma, citruses mainly, a little bit of tropical fruits. Amber and hazy, head practically non-existent. Bitter-sweet fruity taste. Interesting, recommended. mcberko (18422) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
On tap at Mikkeller San Francisco, pours a hazy amber golden with a small white head. Aroma is loaded with bretty funk, with a touch of bright passionfruit and piney hops. Flavour is loaded with bretty funk, some light phenols, very subdued tropical fruits and bitter piney hops. The brett steals the show here, being quite abrasive. Nice stuff. androman (2635) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2017
33cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Nose is wild yeast. Gooseberry, lemon peel, grapefruit. Light bittersweet, medium citric sour. Long hoppy medium bitter. Light to medium body, dry, medium carb. 637414 colui72 (1071) - HONG KONG - AUG 18, 2017
Pours hazy golden/amber, moderately fizzy, a finger of frothy head and not much lacing. Passion fruit is in the aroma in its whole, tart power. Taste gets the fruit’s tartness and flavour very strongly too, with ale malts, "brett" yeast, salt and just a mild bitter finish. Hops are hidden behind the passion fruit, or too similar to it. Crisp, light body, average carbonation, refreshing ale, maybe more a season than an IPA but very nice.
