Bomber. Pours cloudy deep gold with a huge white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is lemon zest, maybe apricots (?) and mangos, a bit of earth. Flavor is earthy, mildly funky, a nice range of brett (tropical fruit, mild bitterness, yeasty funk), some citrus, a bit of spice, slightly peppery, mildly malty. Didn’t get the grains (oats, spelt) mentioned on the label -- they seem to take the back seat to the brett and spice. Medium mouthfeel; a bit spritzy. Fairly complex but still very drinkable.
Bottle... Pours hazy and amber with peach highlights and a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is both fruity and spicy - loads of peach and pear with a moderate measure of yeast-driven clove. Full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is farmhouse-spicy and peppery, but only lightly fruity with moderate bitterness. Crisp, snappy, dry finish. djd07 (16298) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with thick white head. The aroma is yeast, brett, and pepper. Thin mouthfeel with nice brett, citrus, oak, funk, and light dry finish. Good. Beese (3296) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014

750mL bottle pours with a murky deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a thin light tan head. The aroma offers up sweet and estery notes, some maltiness, sweet soured citrus and a bit of earthy basement. The taste delivers sweetness, apple to pear to apricot fruity esters and then a touch of honey sweetness. It has a modest soured citrus kind of tartness here and there. Pretty cool stuff.

Bottle from Craft Beer Co webshop. Golden colour, slightly hazy, white bubbly head. Aroma is fruity, strawberries, ice cream, belgian yeasty, bit of funkiness and light graininess. Taste is great, nice tropical fruit punchiness, some slight sourness, berries at the end. Bit of sweetness from the fruitiness, but a little bite too. Very moreish. Great stuff. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 17, 2014

Bottle. Very carbonated. Over flowing. Aroma is yeasty, bready. Taste us the same, very tart, a bit sour. Nicely tart and sour. Yummy. icehawk (876) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft. Cloudy straw pour with foamy white head. Aroma has hints of pepper, some light fruit, and a tinge of funk. Thin mouthfeel, not much flavor relative to the aroma.
