Damn, I feel patriotic drinking this. ’Merica! Hazy gold with lots of head. Yeast, tropical fruit, just a hint of funk.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thick white head. Yeast, funk, floral, hop, fruit and biscuit aroma and flavors. Medium body and lively carbonation with a bretty finish.

Aromas of sour lemon drop candies and horse blanket. Taste is lemon, lime, seltzer water, some sweet malt, some funky Brett.

0.5l bottle. Love the name. It’s a huge foamy white headed one this. Quickly fading in to small white foamy islands on top of a cloudy bright straw yellow colored body. It smells really good this. Really brett infused and superbly herbal fruity in lack of better describing words. I get white pepper, green grapes, sour pineapple, a nice peachy sweetness and funky yeast. It’s also almost lemonic in the nose, lots of zesty citrus oils. Really something. It’s a good point above average on the carbonation level and it’s thick almost syrupy heavy on the texture in the mouth. Tastes really good also. White whiney and mild woody tart. More sour pineapple, pear juices and a little alco burn in the back. Really tasty this one! 17.07.2015

From tap at The Trappist, Oakland. Light hazy golden orange color with white head. Hoppy, yeasty and malty aroma, brett, dusty, citrus, lemon and orange, grass, caramel. Sweet and light bitter taste. Light to med oil body with soft carbonation.

tightslice (1356) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is funk, mild cat pee, spicy yeast, Bretts, dried pineapple, dried apricot. Taste is surprisingly juicy, dried fruit (if that’s possible), yeasty, dry peels, maybe old dry wood. Prairie somehow makes something so dry, funky and old attic feel fresh, juicy and light.

Cybercat (5893) - Georgia, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Pours clear, wan straw yellow with a fairly thick and somewhat persistent porcelain head. Aroma presents yeasty, fresh malt and white wine tones. Flavor downplays the malt and yeast, but adds some woody hops. Mouthfeel has decent fizz and body, and finish delivers a note of tart white wine. All ’Merica(n), all the time.

I’ve been wanting to try this one for over a year. I love me a good dry-hopped Brett beer, and this is one of the greats of the genre. So, imagine my happiness when I popped the cap, poured it into a glass, and smelled all of that barnyard funk goodness. Then, imagine how confused I got when I actually tasted it. The flavor starts off good, with funk, leather, and earth, but it finishes with a big note of ... fish. Weird. I’ve heard Nelson Sauvin described as giving a "cat pee" taste before -- is that what I’m getting? Whatever it is, it’s pretty unpleasant, and it torpedoes an otherwise really good funky beer.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is funk, spicy and peppery yeast, citrus, and this is the first time I can clearly see what is meant by "barnyard" - makes me think of a horse, but in a good way. Flavor is softer on all counts, with some funk and barnyard standing out. Has lively carbonation and a medium body. Nice.

MetalNHopHead (2018) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Brett and a huge load of Nelson Sauvin hops means that ’Merica is one dank yeasty, funky beer. This yellow-gold brew smells like... Well, if the rain forest exhibit at your closest zoo had sweaty, nasty sex with the local feedlot, this is the type of smell you would get as a result. It’s attractive only in the upside-down world of disgusting aesthetics. The flavor works that way, too. It’s a weird mix of tropical, barnyard, and earth. Bone dry citrusy finish. It’s a remarkable brew that absolutely shouldn’t drank immediately after enjoying a bomber of Anchorage Love Buzz by yourself (unless you want farts that could usher in an apocalypse).
