Drake (14360) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2018
750 mL bottle. Hazy bronze, large fizzy tan head, fair retention. Aroma of caramel, brett, lemon, plum. The taste is brett, lime, citrus, stone fruit, caramel. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Solid.

Cybercat (6444) - Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2018
Pours clear copper with a thick and persistent beige head. Aroma yields a fruity note, primarily peach, supported by zesty fresh malt. Flavor delivers sweet peach, tart pomme and stone fruit, fresh malt, just a snip of resiny hops. Mouthfeel offers firm, smooth body and good fizz. This will do you one bretter.

jsporrer (1170) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Pours a clear dark brownish orange with a big off white foamy head. Semi-sweet aroma with light spices. Medium body with some carbonation and plenty of lacing. Full mouth feel with a nice tingle. Taste is somewhat medicinal and dry but not unpleasant. Flavors of orange peel, cinnamon and cloves. Finishes smooth with an herbal citrusy aftertaste. Unique and different but still pretty enjoyable.

Mep3222 (1751) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2017
Earthy full bodied farmhouse ale with slight spice and ommegang yeasty finish. Flavorful. Brett earthy flavors work quite well with the farmhouse base. Enjoyable.

gripweed57 (3056) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2017
750 ml corked and crowned bottle. Hazy orange copper color. Small creamy beige head. Sweet fruity malt nose has a subtle element of earthy funk. Upfront flavor has a toasted malt and yeasty character. Slightly sweet citrus notes with hints of honey and bubblegum. Spicy, dry, earthy notes in finish. The Brettanomyces prescence is subtle yet effective.

rajendra82 (1109) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2017
From the classy looking bomber, the beer poured cloudy golden in color, with a steady stream of fine bubbles feeding a three finger thick head. The aroma was bready with overtones of peach. The brett funk was lurking in the background in the smell. The taste was not a complex as I expected. The first impression was that of sweetness from pale malt and candi sugar, which was supplemented by a spicy phenols supplied by the yeast. The ingredients for a great beer were all here, but unfortunately it felt a little watered down and simplified. There was also hardly any brett funk in the flavor, which was sad considering the name. It was easy to enjoy, but not quite approaching greatness.

3.6
ABUSEDGOAT (2933) - California, USA - OCT 14, 2017
Hazy darker copper color with a white head and floaties. Aroma is yeast, brett, funk, some caramel, lightly sugary. Medium bodied, yeast flavors dominate, tasty.
