Can, 134 Bar, Nuneaton, 04/01/17. Lovely perfumed lime, nettles, kumquat, coriander, blackcurrant and dragonfruit aroma. Fine perfumed tropical kaffir flavour a cut above all else sampled from cousin Matt's happy bag. Soft gelatinous wine gum with a pillowed punch of bitterness. Misted lacy gold. YES.

jgb9348 (6642) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2018
Super hazy golden coloured body with a large frothy white head about three centimetres tall that leaves a pretty ugly lace when its gone. Aroma of grass, hay, funk, yeast, lemons and grain with a little bit of citrus as well. Light-bodied; Sharp funky flavour of yeast, brett, funk, earth and super dry, biscuity flavours with a dash of lemons and citrus along with a touch of more hay and grass near the end. Aftertaste shows some funk and brett with a little dash of hay and grass and ending with some very light sweetness from some citrus fruits and shows a touch of earthier malts near the finish. Overall, a very dry and funky beer with a lot of complexities from all the yeast and also shows some citrus and refined hoppy flavours near the very end. Nice to sample and shows a ton of flavours for such a low alcohol beer, worth trying to find if you like the style and especially IPAs with Brett. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Knightly Spirits in Orlando (Orange Blossom Trail), Florida on 28-December-2017 for US$2,99 sampled in my hotel room here at the [Disney] Carribean Beach Resort on 03-January-2018.

Aromas y sabores Ácidos bretas que lo dominan todo con toques afrutados maltosos tropicales. Cuerpo ligero a medio seco ácido y ligeros herbaceos y cítricos Bastante sabor y algo Espumosa. Amargo seco final entre herbaceo fresco. Ligeramente resinosos y ácido.  Bastante buena. Original. Toda una ipa con brettas.

Very fresh can provided by Joe, the MB. Hazy, light golden appearance with off-white, persistent head. Fresh, intense fruity hops (stone fruit, citrus, pine) with a faint fenolic/fruity yeast notes. Hop centered, same as the flavor, very fruity citra notes with smooth, low bitterness for the style but very tasty and soft on the palate. A remarcable IPA with just a touch of dry, remote funkinness and just-so-light tang that propels the hops forward.

On tap @ Mikkeller San Diego. Hazed golden-orange beer with a white head. It has a nice amount of grapefruit going on, but otherwise I’m not the biggest fan. A lot of peppery and cedary qualities I have picked up from other Brettanomyces fermented beers. It does also have some hints of pineapple juice, which I do like. The bitterness just sort of sits on the tongue, though, and I don’t really care for that.

Alpha10 (881) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2017
2017/08/27 - Pours a clear, yellow gold colour with a thick, foamy, white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is citrus (orange, grapefruit), pineapple, melon, musty and lightly tart Brett, bready caramel malt, pine and floral hops. Taste is more tropical and citrus fruits, pine, musty Brett and light caramel. Mouthfeel is medium with biting carbonation and a long, moderately bitter, mildly herbal finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ctipping (2299) - Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2017
16 oz. can. Hazy orange with a big white head. Smells of citrus, pine, and a combination of acidic yeast components and doughy malt that create a sourdough aroma. Tastes of brett influences throughout. Of the tangy-er varietal, too. Makes the citrus hop flavor tart. A little of the doughy sweetness again, but it’s mostly muted. Back end has some earthy brett notes, but only after the hops die down. Dry and medium bodied. Good. It avoids some pitfalls that other brett IPAs step in, which is enough to make it very enjoyable, but still not something I’d jump on if I found it again.

Lightly hazy golden-yellow, large foaming head. Nose is hops first, funk second. Tropical fruit, some citrus and flowers. Sour dough and blue cheese. Soft palate, semi-sweet up front with a kiss of tartness and goat cheese flavors, a little resinous hop at the edges, and a pretty strong bitterness at finish. Semi-dry at end. Was hoping for a little more bretty funk, but its still a nice effort, and a great hop profile.
