COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed predominantly with organic 2- row, the malt bill is rounded out with organic light munich, organic 60L crystal and caravienna. Northwest Golding and Hallertauer hops provide a pleasant hop character. Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

Cloudy golden color with small head. Wonderful aroma, deep, fresh, fruity, with mild Brett character; apricot wine; impression of hard cheese rind. Highly carbonated, smooth mouthfeel, rather dry; strong Brett character, providing also a strong astringency; a lot of bitter orange peel; the acidity is just mild.
Excellent.

Bottle at the brewery, kindly split by the guy serving to a couple of out of towners from the East coast and myself - 26/05/13. Lightly hazed golden with a thin white head. Nose is bretts, soured fruits, funk, tarte gooseberries, barnyard. Taste comprises light brett - but always in the shadows, grass, lemon rind, tarte berry fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp clean finish - pitched to perfection and making this sour super drinkable. Great tackle! Lots of complexity and depth for 5.7%, well executed.

mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy opaque dark orange with a large foamy white head. Aroma brings out mostly brett upfront, a little hay, and some hops. Flavour brings out lots of beautiful brett, some floral hops, and moderate funk. Highly drinkable, with a very pungent freshness as well as brett spike. Leaves moderately funky and fresh floral notes. Great funky pale.

Ferris (15403) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Bottle - Smells sweet and sour with hints of cherry and orange. Hazy orange with a thick long lasting head. Sour on the tongue with some surprising bitterness and a yeasty finish. Individual flavours are hard to discern with the sour and bitterness overwhelming the palate. Would pair nicely with food, but not enough on its own. Draft - So much better than the bottle, more like a Flemish. Finish us still weak but the flavours come through. Will rate based on this.

bhensonb (15235) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Capped 750 from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy orange with a creamy off-white head. Nice fresh brett odor. (brett? fresh? well, yeah) With fruit. Med body or better. Flavor seems to be brett, light pitted fruit, spicy. It’s earthy. Extremely tasty.
