Poured into Duvel tulip.
Initial aroma is bready and malt related then the tart and sour effects kick in. It's an interesting mix and not expected
Quite gold and clear. Big full white head and attractive bubbles rise from the nucleation.
Taste is similar with the lager like pils malt base and a mild soft tartness. A little sweetness up front and then the doughy flavors before the yeasts kick in. The alcohol does not show in the taste, in fact it is quite well hidden, except the warmth in the gut. Some light funkiness and noticeable dryness on the finish.
A little lighter on the feels makes it a little too easy to drink down. Soft and enjoyable feel.
I may add some things as I work through this.
Updates - the wild ale flavors show forth as it sits for awhile. They are nice and tasty, just not prominent.

Thanks to dcloeren for this one.
Light fizzy head, semi clear golden honey colored tons of sediment
Nose lemon grass, grassy little hay, sweet candy malts, corn, little grainy funk and straw, candy cereal captain crunch like, lemony
Taste lots of lemony grainy yeasty funk, lemongrass, sweet grain mash, semi sweet mash like little corn and straw wet hay, very little funk, grassy bready doughy, little mineral chalky like, yeasty flavor, fairly sweet with mild orange rind, juicy too. Finish is drier but sticky, light straw and more mild icky sweet funk, weird flavor, lemony straw.
Mouth is med bod, lighter but decent carb,
Overall eh, weird and little funk. Not too enjoyable. Just very weird all around and not really Brett like either.

Bottle share at Proof thanks to jbruner. Clear pale yellow color with swirls of thin white head and a medium collar. Aroma is super grainey and light malt. Taste is very faintly grassy, and then some light malt sweetness. Not much else to this one. Thin watery body, light carbonation.

A: Pours an apple cider golden color with a thin white head. OK retention and slight lace.
S: Light barnyard aromas with some light stonefruit notes. Funk, pear, white peach, brett, hints of white wine and some sweet Belgian yeast notes. The sweetness is a bit much here, but this doesn't smell bad.
T: Doughy yeast, light pear, white pepper, some other unknown baking spices and lots of Belgian yeast. The finish is very sweet and the mouthfeel is almost buttery. The brett never really shows up to dry this puppy out and I wish it had. Saving the Lost Abbey one for a later date. Hopefully that one's better.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a hazy lemon yellow with high carbonation producing a 1/2 inch white head. Good retention.
S: Farmhouse funk and bright citrus notes courtesy of the brett. White pepper and hint of Belgian spice.
T: Whoa...nose dive here. Watery and weak. Nothing like the aroma...which was fairly pedestrian to begin with.
M: Light body. A bit oily feel. Nothing special here either.
D: Not a very good offering here. Lost Abbey and NBB produced a bastardized beer. Not recommended.

On tap at Max's (from notes)
A: Slightly hazy blonde.
S: Yeasty, funk, and farmhouse.
T: Lots of farmhouse. Heavy and thick. Eh, ok. Horse blanket with a fair amount of saison flavor.
M: Decent carbonation with light bubbles.
O: Ok, but not at all what I was expecting.
