Bottle poured a lightly hazy orange hue w/ an enormous foamy head and minor sticky lacing. Mild earthy aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are apricot, lemon, barnyard funk, and straw. Full bodied.

750mL corked & caged beer - Bottled 11 JUN 14 John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Quite a struggle to get this bad boy open. I’m rewarded with a hazy, very bright orange beer, pouring a pillowy white head.
Aroma explodes from the bottle, filling the room straight away; cooked citrus, pine sap, orange sherbert, grapefruit, grass, leading onto funky notes of fermenting pineapple, hay & horse sweat, with peppery phenolic undertones.
Body rather fuller than expected for strength/Brett infected (was expecting dryness!), lively carbonation, lingers for a good measure on the palate.
Plenty of hops on offer here - resiny, leafy, spicy, candied orange, pine sap, theres a nice sweet pale malt note in there leading onto funky Bretty grapefruit rind, pineapple, hay & barnyard. Bitterness is relentless, lingering spicy phenolic finish.
Really interesting blend of big US hops & Bretty funk - works well!
Bottle. Amber. Citrus, tropical fruit, caramel, and funky brett yeast throughout. Good stuff. conway (2210) - - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle. Dark copper with thin white head. Funky with a variety of tropical fruit flavors and musk. Quite enjoyable. DSG (15256) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[3/2/15] Draught at Brouwer’s Cafe in Seattle. Nice deep red-amber color with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, funk and fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, mild funk, hops, some fruitiness and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.

citrus rind aroma with tart berry notes. taste has grassy notes with lemon and grapefruit. finish is bitter and a tad juicy. the breadyness from the yeast is subtle but present. kevinsenn (2293) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle. Fruity funky tart aroma. Taste is soapy and citrusy, with a dry bitter finish. Very nice. BrettTaylor (784) - Radford, Virginia, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Poured as 4 ounce taster at Roanoke’s For the Love of the Brew fest. Nice Brett notes with earthiness and spice making a good presence in what otherwise would be a normal’ish IPA. Ctplt777 (533) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Definitely funky. There a wet hay, barn aroma with a sublte sweetness. Tropical fruits and some citrus. Tastes like an IPA with some funk. As it warms up I started to get some more complex aromas and flavors. It started to taste like a saison. Overall an interesting beer. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Poured from 750ml bottle.
Hazy, orange-amber with a huge, billowing khaki head and very good lacing.
Aroma of citrus, hay, barnyard, fruit and bread.
Taste of funky fruit, bread, hay, caramel and pine.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
A rather nice interplay of funk and hops. The slight tartness is balance by the solid malt background.
