Descrip - Danish: IPA gæret 100% med brettanomyces og humlet med Galaxy, Citra, Summit og Cascade.
Tried out a small sampling of this non-American IPA at Poor Phil's. 1.5 oz. served in a pint taster on June 15th, 2012.
A - Pours a slightly hazy, light yellow. Appearance is saison or pilsner-like. Eggshell white head with good edge-clinging retention and okay lacing.
S - Very floral aromatics. There is a slight grassy Brett undertone, some lemon citrus, and a touch of a bready malt bill.
T - Weird, weak front-palate of wheat and grass transitions into a strong hop note at mid-palate. The hop quality pushes through the rest of the drink and overpowers everything else beyond recognition. Heavy lemon residue aftertaste.
M - Light body, fair carbonation, dry resiny finish.
D - Smell was vastly superior to the taste. Not likely to revisit even though the additions in this one make it "sound" appealing.

16.9 oz bottle into Duvel tulip... "Best Before 2013" on the bottle... (oops it's 2.3.13)
A - Poured with a crazy amount of head. Settled to a thin layer with decent retention. Good lacing.
S - MAJOR brett funk. Darker malt presence than expected. Some American hops in the background. Really dominated by the brett funk. Too much for me, probably.
T - I enjoy the flavor more than the aroma. I think that if this had been made with "regular" yeast, I would find it too malty, but it's not offensive. The funk is still pretty strong. Hops are detectable in the background, but everything is dominated by the brett funk.
M - Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel.
O - Ok, granted I drank this a little late but I was not thrilled by this beer. I will try it fresh if I have the chance. If you like a lot of brett... you may really enjoy this. I gave slightly higher scores because of the fact that I drank this a little late... Also - not sure this should really be considered an American IPA... :-) Again, maybe fresh the hops would have been able to hold up to the brett, but I don't think it would have been as much of an issue without the brett. Cool idea from a cool brewery.

Served in tulip. Poured an attractive bright yellow color, but solid. Picture the thickest Hefe you've ever seen and double it. Totally opaque, no translucence at all. The beer had about a half-inch of bright white head that had low retention and decent lacing.
The lead aroma was a slight Brett scent, and a very low hop presence. There wasn't a real malt scent either. Both the Brett and the pine & citrus hops were a bit tangier on the tongue, and the citrus aspect lingered at the finish.
The body was nicely medium and surprisingly smooth. Drinkability was good, but I'm not sure I'd want 2 in a row. Overall, a nice enough brew, but one I'm not sure is worth it's $8 price.

Drank from my Ciney sniffer
A - Pours a pale hazy golden straw colour with a thick white head that retains and laces.
S - A combination of citrus hop and malt, not much sour character.
T - Up front some decent hop notes that are balanced not overpowering, the brett kicks in on the finish but is superseded by the bitterness at the end.
M - Medium body and low to medium carbonation.
O - Recommended and Interesting as a one off but not enough brett for me.

Ok let's just start by saying these guys are really cool and anything they produce has to be tasted at least once and it seems IPAs with Brett is the new style everyone wants to brew and yeah I'm on that bandwagon,this puppy pours a slight hazed golden pale yellow hue almost akin to urine colour and leaves a dollop of a rather frothy head resembling a weird looking cloud and clingy lacing sporadically placed,the smell is pineapple,of course funky Brett,mangoes and bubblegum nice but not unique,mouthfeel is medium bodied moderately carbonated and super sessionable with tastes of pineapple,paw paw,mangoes,sherbet,bubblegum and finished with a funky Brett meets hops bitterness and yeah it's nice and quite the quaffer but its nothing ill be hunting for when its all gone cheers.

A - dark orangish gold with a 2 finger, white head that has decent retention
S - incredibly musty and dank, something fruity but hard to place
T - piney, herbal, alcohol, bitter finish all on the mellow side
M - medium bodied, almost feels murky? in the mouth
decent, but not blown away at the 9.99$ pricetag. not to be avoided, just not amazed by it for the price it currently stands at. might buy again if it were a few bucks cheaper

Bomber into hfs sniffer
A: golden honey color of a quality ipa with a huge 2in white foamy head that takes a while to dissipate
S: floral scent with a funky aroma that I have seen with Brett before there is not much hop there though
T: okay so the main taste here is definitely a Brett funk which tastes good but it almost the only thing there is a hint if ipa taste with hop bitterness but its not well balenced
M:it's got a carbonation feel without being bubbly but I wish it was more so as the fact it's almost flat tasting with a carbonation feel brings out the funk and really hurts the drinkability
O: I like it but it was harder to drink as time went on the funk sort of got to me I feel if it was more balanced it could be good but it wasn't my favorite unless you like Brett stay way but if you do it's worth a shot not my style though
