It’s a deep bitter style that eludes traditional style descriptions - not quite an IPA, not quite a Belgian, but delicious, dank, and a bit soapy. Recommended as a different direction for hop lovers and Belgian lovers. Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2009
I just love this beer, it mixes the fresh hopiness of the Ipa with the subtle complexities of Bret, mixes well and I find myself creving this beer more and more. the aroma is subtle bret with a sweet hop front, appearance is dark golden with full fluffy head, flavor is spot on in its sublte complexities, refreshing finish, very inviting. Palate sits well on the mouth and overall it is just an extremely good beer. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2009
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 Hazy amber with big, flotsam, off-white head / Perfumey nose of brett, herbs, and orchard fruit / Light to medium body, tart and dry, with long, bitter finish / Upfront brett punch with flavors of rose petal, violets, chrysanthemum, apple, caramel, coriander, white pepper, and oak / On a par with Jolly Pumpkin. kurtbrews (5) - - SEP 14, 2014 does not count
A great twist on one of my favorite beers. The addition of wild Belgium yeast to hop devil creates exactly what you would think, slightly more creamy and smooth which compliments the hop devils powerful malt, caramel, pine and citrus. The color remains a beautiful orange mahogany but with some added cloudiness. Overall a great beer for the hop enthusiasts. jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2008
poured off the tap an amber coppish color with a good head that dissipated rather quickly. Aroma was akin to Orval nice brett thing going on, fruity, definitely some tropical fruit, and the american hops comming through. flavor was incredible and very complex. started full with malts, balancing nicely the flavor of the hops and brett, citrussy, but with a bretty edge. as the beer got to the finish the brett really turned into that nice horseblanket aroms and dryed out a bit. nice medium bodied mouthfeel. my new favorite victory brew.

For a beer thats not very "big" this one gets high marks. The scent is obviously piney but also a deceptive hint of sour. It has that lactic edge but stops short of sour, it is "sprucey" but very smooth and balanced and a nice copper color. I could drink several.

i am naming all 7 kids i have Brett, even the girls!
A deep dark orange color shoots out of the bottle also there seems to be an even darker center. At first there is a sweet malty flavor that comes out and finishes with a grassy herbal like ending. The taste of this beer is unlike any other; there is a sweet earthy start to the beer and concludes with a peppery like ending. This beer is truely one of Victory’s best creations! patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Pours a transluscent, slightly hazy ruby with a huge, two-finger, bubbly beige head. Aroma of juicy hop resins, barnyard funk, gruyere cheese, pine, fresh dark cherries, and ripe grapefruit. Medium bodied with a funky, fuely, modestly tart palate. Finishes with a sweet cherry-funk sourness which lingers on the tongue for awhile. Excellent wild ale. Hail Victory! THiS (15) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2010
