Cap says 9/4/2017. I bought this from a bottle shop that opened May 2014 on July 8, 2015. I enjoyed it in a Hopslam tulip/snifter.
This is my first experience with Brett. I drank this for IPA day but this is far from the beer I was expecting. This was similar to the experience I had drinking Jolly Pumpkin Weizen Bam Biere expecting a wheat and getting a sour. This is sour.
Look - Hazy but no sediment mango yellow. Thick white head. I started with an aggressive pour then poured down the side and still got two fingers. It had thick bubbles and died quickly. Little to no lacing.
Smell - Swirled I can pick up a faint hint of dank grapefruit and pineapple. It is mainly sour and sweet. There is grass.
Taste - Saison. It tastes like a saison. Grass, sweet, and sour. I get little to no pine and citrus. Vanilla in the after after taste (I am R Kelly).
Feel - Very carbonated. Medium mouthfeel. Little hop tingle on tongue.
Overall - Reading up on Brett I know it is expected to be a saison or flanders. I was about to rip it a new one for the style points. Is this a beer I want to drink on IPA day, no. Is it an okay beer, yes. I won’t buy it again. As it warmed the only difference was more head and more lacing. UXO (1922) - CANADA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours cloudy medium gold with three fingers (and growing) of rocky light tan head, heavy lacing. (4/5) Nose is pithy citrus, brett funk, tropical fruit, pale grainy malt. (8/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong bitter, strong tart. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry funky finish. (4/5)
That’s a fairly unique A/IPA - definitely dominated by the brett, but still retaining a strong hop character. I’ve had Belgian IPA’s before, and this shares a lot of the characteristics of that style, but the brett is definitely the joker in the deck. In fact, the first thing I thought of when I cracked it, was that it smelled like a lambic or a gueuze. Bit of a beast, but lots of fun. The only other beer I can think of that took the “brett inoculated IPA” route is Stone Enjoy After - but that’s gonna be my Boxing Day present to myself this year, so I’ll have to get back to y’all with a comparison on that.

Appearance: pours almost all head, the head is a darker beige color, the beer is a slightly darker than average gold color, the head settles into a very thick dense layer Aroma: strong lemon, orange citrus, spice, potpourri, smells good Taste: very strong bitterness, alcohol warmth on the finish, citrus, malt really gets out of the way, not sweet, spicy Palate: average carbonation, bitter and light alcohol aftertaste, medium mouthfeel Overall: a lot to like about this beer, has a strong bitterness backed up by a spice behind it, alcohol is well hidden, gets more funky as it warms and you get to the bottom of the bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone S_Side_Smitty (802) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours a nice glowing amber-orange with a small white head. Aroma is sweet mango and tangerine. Taste is pineapple, tangerine and mango in that order giving away to light grainy malts with a lingering tang from the hops. Really good in a subtle exotic way. wekker84 (2390) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2015
