COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Transmitter Brewing F1 is a Brett Golden Ale with peach and grapefruit notes laid against a backdrop of a dry Belgian Ale. At 58 IBUs, this is the closest they get to an IPA. Brett contributes funk, but is slow-working and needs time to give this even more farmhouse character. Drink fresh or put in a cellar for a while. 6.4% ABV.

[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ Schnapps snifter ][ 03.25.16 ]
hazy copper, frothy pour with huge cream Head that foams over then drops fast. Light orange and pine refresh, orange pine sol bitterness mid palate before sharp papery bitter end. Lightly fizzy, thin bodied but profile works accordingly.

TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle from MaxxDaddy, I’m pretty sure. Pours a hazy dark gold peach. Poured with fluffy head that disappated relatively quickly. Fruity aroma with peach, grapefruit and some nice funkiness to it. Taste is funky, kinda fruity. Good and drinkable, not entirely getting the Belgian thing.

4.2
iguanodon (164) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 25, 2015
750 ml bottle from Julio’s in Westboro MA. Mine is labeled "F1 Brett Golden Ale", 6.4% ABV, but this F0 seems like the closest match on RB. Pours cloudy brownish gold with a thick off white head. Aroma of stone and tropical fruit, funky yeast. Taste is bitter with those same fruity notes, straw, wood. Took a chance on this one, very glad I did.
