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.

3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2012
medium caramel amber body, lightly hazed.
lightly acetic nose; medium oak; dried cherry / cranberry esters.
brett plastic / band-aid.
medium-high acid; medium-low bitterness.
toasty / crunchy malt, but well-suited firm.
the acid seems to bury the huskiness apparent in the Avant Flandre.
minimal hop character.
quite good, balanced, subdued, measured.

Hazy golden copper under a thin white cap. Nice fruity funky bretty tropical nose with light papaya and passion fruit and soft Belgian amber malt nuances. Crisp flavor that’s lightly bretty funky with amber farmhouse tones, and a nuanced juicy semi tropical tone. Really nuanced and nice.

750ml bottle. Floral Brett aroma with notes of cherry, grassy hops and some bready malt. Pours orange-amber colored with a half a finger of off white head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with grassy hop and bready malt flavors as well as a lively mouthfeel. Finishes dry and gently tart with some cherry and floral Brett flavors. Pretty solid.

Amber body with vigorous carbonation activity building into a beige, lathery foam top. Sharp, tart, and fruity Brett bouquet apparent from the first whiff. The body follows through with a sharp rindy Brett character. Tart, mildly fruity and funky with some pleasant toasted grain notes that push through. Biting, rather acerbic Brett finish.

patricks110 (2794) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2017
Beautiful. Pours a clear orange gold with a light frothy off white head. The nose is fruity, funky brett, mild malts. Dry and tart with a light and floral bitterness. Funky but not overbearing. A good beer but unmemorable.

BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Draught at Festival of Funk. Pours clear orange with a small, frothy white head, short retention. Aroma is Berry and cherry notes, farmhouse Brettanomyces with light bread malt. Flavor is funky Brettanomyces with berries, cherries and bread malt and a dry finish. Medium-light body and medium carbonation.

gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2017
On draft at the source. Pours hazy amber. Cherry, diaper, oak. Low carbonation, light body.

hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Sampled from a 750 ml bottle during the barrel empty project at Humboldt Brewworks. Pours a cloudy orange with an off-white head. Nose of brett, and fruit. Medium plus body. Flavor is fruit plus brett. Finishes slightly tart and earthy. Really good.

Fatehunter (2641) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Pours a finger of head on a hazy dark straw body. Aroma is mild raspberry and cherry. Taste is moderate tart raspberry, dry mild bitter. Texture is crisp.

Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2016
Sample at the taproom. The beer is a cloudy copper-orange color with a medium thick off-white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of funky fruit, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of brett yeast, funky citrus and doughy malt. The finish is tropical fruit and brett. Pretty good overall.

jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle. Copper color with a thin ring of beige head. Nose is hops, brett, oak, and a little fruity. Smells like it’s going to be acidic... Sour and light bitter taste, a little funky fruit. Somewhat acidic, but less than the aroma would suggest. More hops than fruit, oak barrel, and sour.
