22 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is spicy, earthy brett and some tropical fruit.
The flavor is some earthy brett with musty hops and biscuity malt and very light fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, the brett smell is great, but the flavor is musty and dirty. I was hoping for better brett and fruit.

Pale yellow with almost no head. Aroma is lemony citrus, light Brett funk, very light malt too. The Brett takes a bigger role in the taste, with the lemon and malt in supporting roles. Light body and low carbonation. Over all a good showcase of the Brett and citrus, but I could use something else.

Draft pour for $3.50 at the amazing Huntersville, NC Duckworth's.
Pours a hazy straw color with a light head and generous lacing. This is a nice session brew that I feel narrowly misses the mark. I can taste and smell the lemon - more peel than anything else. It's very dry and sadly - I don't get much funk from the Brett. I'd definitely have it again - it's just this close to being fantastic. Westbrook is slaying it right now with their canned Gose - and it's great. This brew is inches from being that type of brew, interesting enough for the geeks and simple enough to hook newbies.

A 4.0% abv all Brettanomyces Pale Ale with Citra hops, citrus juic and peel added. It pours a slightly hazed golden apricot hue with bright white head with a yellow tint to it, fine Belgian style lacing. We are in good hands; this beer was brewed at Westbrook Brewing Company.
Aroma has that wild funky brett character with lemon/lime citrus notes coming through, citrus pith and zest as well the oils jump out of the glass and into your nares. The character from the all Brett fermentation leads to a bit of horse blanket, barnyard quality with a dank earthy mint spice even alcohol glazed pear.
Flavor contains bitter orange pith off the bat, brettanomyces character all day. Tropical fruit, bitter earthy dank citric brettanomyces yeast notes. Again more of those flavors associated with the brett fermentation including barnyard, pear, herbal mint notes. Citra hops are lost amongst everything else going on.
Mouthfeel has a lighter body but the textures are not thin in anyway, so nice to see a 4% session pale ale all brett fermentation this is unique and trademark of something you would brew with Crooked Stave he did graduate work on Brettanomyces fermentation and I’m pretty sure that strain with other wild yeasts full most of his breweries creations.
Overall, very enjoyable easy to consume yet satisfyingly complex characteristics are found in this beer, I’m glad that they are distributed in Ohio. Hell Eviltwin Imperial Biscotti Break remains in my top ten beers of all time.

Served from bottle in to a Funky Buddha snifter. Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, funk, earth, bubblegum, wheat, and spices. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, funk, wheat, earth, and wood. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. There was definitely something in this one that my palate didn't enjoy too much. I don't think it was an off flavor but just abrasive to my personal palate. Finishes very dry, like I need a glass of water kind of dry. The Brett is definitely the star of the show on this one though. If that's your kind of thing I suggest you go for it on this one.

Thanks to Thomas & Jenny for sharing!
Quick review from written notes.
Splashed into a tulip glass, it pours a hazy golden orange tone. Thin ring and patchy skim across the surface.
Soft woodiness and eucalyptus from the Brett strain, also some damp hay and citrus notes.
Juicy orange , bitter peels, tropical passionfruit flavors, well integrated Brett yeast plays off the fruit nicely. Medium bodied, juicy at first with a dry finish. Very summery and drinkable. Glad this stuff is fairly affordable, will seek some out.

Served up a hazy, glowing yellow with a slender layer of cream on the surface. Mild aromas of Brett-y citrus, flower petals, and dusty funk. Slightly more Brett in the mouth, lime zest, dry funk, powdery floral...lingering simple flavors. I noticed a very slight tinge of lactic acidity towards the bottom of the glass. Quite dry, snappy, and light. An easy drinking, uncomplicated Brett beer.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a hazy, medium golden amber with a fine one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of lemon-lime, citrus hops, mild brett, marzipan and floral notes. Flavor is bretty lemon, light citrus hops, lightly tart, finishing bretty with more lemon-lime and light citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. An interesting take on a pale ale, with some real citrus fruit flavor in addition to citrus tartness. I really like the aroma and almost wished the ale had the same character. Given the session intent, really has some interesting flavors, but perhaps a bit on the simple side with lemon/lime and brett pretty much the whole show. Session ales and bretty ales are not at the top of my drinking list, so I may not be the right audience for this ale. Nicely made and probably a great choice for fans of brett and refreshing light ales.
