Perfect beer is what a man I know called this one. This beer has perfect flavor. You just don't do better than this. Bretty belgian hop perfection if there was ever such a thing. The brett is so alive out of the gate, and whatever the hops are give it this freshness sensation. I feel like i've been thrown into a bucket of light and nothing else with every sip. This could be the most refreshing beverage I have ever consumed above 5%. This beer is so full of personality; truly a monument to creative brewers everywhere. Crazy good. Crazy complex. Crazy satisfactory.

Mikkeller is breaking breaking barriers I thought were indestructible

330ml bottle. The beer's name apparently translates to 'oh what?!', which is generic enough for me to question what the hell the label's depictions actually are meant to relate - i.e., wasting beer by pouring it into a hat?

This beer pours a rather hazy, red brick amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, thinly foamy, eroded rocky head, which leaves a half-wall of thickly webbed, sudsy lace 'around' the glass as things lazily recede.

It smells of funky, cheesy, farmhouse yeast - Brett in all its perceptible 'goodness' - musty white grapes, partly on their way to becoming white wine, grainy pale malt, some fleshy apple esters, and earthy, dusty hops. The taste is more musty, grainy pale malt, a well-lessened funk, one more dry orchard than barnyard oriented, some fading grape and drupe dry fruitiness, and those same dusty, earthy hops from the aroma, flitting above the yeast's transgressions here.

The bubbles are mostly underground, planning an insurrection that never comes, the body medium-light in weight, and somewhat hard-put to be smooth, as the yeast and now evidently sassy hops having their ungainly way. It finishes off-dry, the malt procuring a backbone, as the yeast eases off a bit, and the hops carry on as ever was.

An agreeable enough pale ale, of the Belgian sway, if that direction happens to include yer wild-ass yeast. Definitely an offering for fans of Messr. Brettanomyces Bruxellensis, ESQ. Me, I'm good with the non-funky version, normally. (1,478 characters)

750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass.

Appearance - Pours a deep copper. Big head that settles to a thick layer of surface foam.

Smell - Bretty. Some fruitiness. Grapes and a bit of apple. Dark caramel. Slightly musty.

Taste - Bretty again. Less intense with the fruit, but some flavor persists. Caramel malts. Darker malts get stronger in the finish. Bitter and sharp bretty finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry and highly carbonated. Medium body.

Overall - Interesting and enjoyable. Complex flavors from the brett and darker malts. (537 characters)

Pours an effervescent orange with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Stellar lacing & head retention

S: Faint Brett notes, that pick up steam quickly, over-ripe peaches & little bit of pear

T: Some Brett, pears & wine sap apples up front. Peppery notes & a little bit of grapefruit as this warms, a little bit of peach as well, Chardonnay dryness too, plus pineapple. Finishes dry, fruity & with much Brett

MF: Light bodied, moderate carbonation, crisp

Drinks easy, I like the Brett aspect of this, too pricey to be in my rotation though... (543 characters)
